Really enjoyed this hotel. the location is perfect, very close to old town square and wenseslas square. The rooms are large, clean and tidy and the staff are helpful with things you want to know. Didn't have breakfast but for the price we paid (£8 per person per night) was very cheap and we were happy with what we got...

Best thing about the hostel was it's location. We were in walking distance to all the major sites in Prague. Their breakfast service was very filling and affordable. I found the service to be very poor however. The hostel should do better screening of the persons who they allow in the rooms with others. Also, they should ensure that they...

So first of all. Both the location and the price for a night is really a 5 out of 5. But the rest. Don't know where to start. The beds are uncomfortble, there is no lock on the door to the toilet and no door to the shower. So me and some people I met did "guard" eachother when showering....

Stayed in a double room with exclusive use of a bathroom down the hall. I've rated it based on price. I don't think you can expect more without paying more. The location was fantastic. It was only a couple of minutes walk to the Christmas market. The room was clean and warm and the bed didn't hurt my back. Soap...

The sole reason I gave this place 4 stars was because it was a good price and has a fabulous location. It's located in a great neighborhood in the heart of the city and is within walking distance to several major attractions (Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, the astronomical clock). I was able to walk to everything and only had...

We were 6 guys staying in a 5 person room. Very comfortable beds, neatly made when we arrived, towels and bed linen included. Private and spacious bedroom facing the street but there was no noise at all even at night though a very packed street was right outside. High ceiling. Extraordinarily high quality for hostel private rooms. Everything spick and...

It would be normal to be noisy if the room is besides the touristy street, but the noise from reception was unbearable. There was even a note to observe silence between 10pm to 4am but the receptionist didn't do something. The internet was almost non-existent inside the room, we had to be in the reception area. They also told us...

The hostel has the best location, the room was big enough and very clean only problem was internet!! It didn't work in the room so, book one near reception this is where you can get connection. Oh and because it is very central it gets a bit noisy if you are a person who can not sleep in the noise...

Honestly for the price it could've been a lot better! Receptionists were okay upon arrival, weren't particularly helpful or friendly! But perhaps aren't being paid enough for the long hours they are doing! (12 hour shifts from what I could gather!) Hostel wasn't that tidy or clean. At one point during our stay they'd overbooked so there was a mattress...

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
