We are a couple and we are traveling around Europe for 3 weeks! Prague was our second stop. We booked at hostel Lipa a private room with shared bathroom. The room was excellent, absolutely clean, big and bright! The bed was very comfortable! The showers and toilets were clean also not all day long because the people wasn't respect to keep clean the shared places of the hostel. The kitchen was fully equipped. I loved the living room!!! The location is very close to the bus station Florenc but not in the city center! Fact that we liked because it was quite and not crowded And also the communication with the reception was very good! We highly recommend this place for a sort or long stay in Prague!
As it was my first ever stay in a hostel, I was a little hesitant at first but thanks to the good location, clean rooms and very welcoming staff (girl, keep it up!) I was able to fully and safely enjoy my little vacation in Prague. What surprised me the most is how much this place resembled a home - a vibe you definitely won't get at hotels. The only con I could think of regarding this place is that it may get a little noisy at night but there is nothing a pair of earplugs cannot fix. Give it a try, especially since it's really budget friendly ;)
Unfortunately had to deal with very terrible customer service. Due to falling I'll, I missed my initial flight and gave days notice to cancel my reservation. They insisted on charging me the full rate, despite my having explained to them the circumstances, and accused me of not planning ahead. I would understand if I was a no-show inconveniencing the hostel, but it is a hostel for backpackers who budget, and I gave multiple days notice. If you're a backpacker I highly encourage you take your meager funds elsewhere.
The staff was great and they were very eager to help me when I had some roommate troubles. The room was spacious and clean. The kitchen was well-equipped. I was there in off-season so there weren't a lot of guests, it was all very quiet. I think Zizkov is quite lovely. This location was perfect for me because it is quite close to the Main Railway Station, the bus station and tram station. Prague has an overall good public transport system and the city center was easily accesible. My only complaint would be that the room's door could be a little sturdier and more soundproof, but it wasn't something terribly annoying.
We stayed in the double room. Ample space, very clean and the host was knowledgeable, could help us with everything. Bus stop right in front of the hostel and tram five minutes walk. Shared kitchen is well stocked. Free coffee, tea and cereal. Bathrooms, toilets were always c!ean. Never noisy. Will stay there again.
