4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Hostel is in a great location, a 10 minute walk from the centre of this small town and very close to the castle. You can get reasonably priced food at the restaurant next door. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were airy.

Showers and toilets were alright but I noticed they were not cleaned everyday and you have to share two showers and two toilets with up to 30 or so other people.

Room Tip: If you have a large/heavy suitcase, try to get a room downstairs as the stairs to the loft area upst...

Very good value for money, great location (although Cesky Krumlov is tiny!), generally a nice atmosphere, although one of the guys who worked there I found unnerving, but only came across him briefly, the other two guys I met were very welcoming. Had a nice little patio area where you could light a fire which was nice and cosy. Not many shower facilities considering the size of the hostel, but to be honest I didn't have a problem with getting in the shower when I wanted! Only downside was that the rooms don't lock (lockers inside though). During my stay, this meant on one night we had a few members of a stag do wandering into our room at the early hours of the morning as they weren't sure which room was theirs!! Didn't have a problem the second night though!

We spent 4 nights at hostel 99. The hostel is in a great location at the northern end of the old town and very close to the castle. It is clean, the beds are comfortable and the temperature indoors was perfect. The bathroom showers have more pressure than anywhere I've ever stayed. We were very impressed by the friendliness of the manager - and it was for this reason, plus the beautiful weather that we stayed an extra night. The hostel was quite quiet when we were there but we spent some time chatting to the few other guests in the small but well equipped kitchen.
Really must emphasise the friendliness of the staff, really made our stay.

This hostel was fantastic! Central location, great views and value for money. It is an old building but that just added to the homely feel. The staff were so friendly and just great to muck around with. I felt very relaxed and comfortable at this hostel. The stairs up to the top room are quite steep so I wouldn't reccommend that room for an elderly person. Also the river pub crawl was fantastic, this just topped off my trip. Thanks for all the fun guys!

Room Tip: Don't stay in the 4 bed dorm because one of the staff member stays in the room next door so will...

Hostel 99 is cheap, but it's not worth the money you save. The conditions of the facilities can only be described as run down and ancient. Bathrooms were not very clean... Black mould all through the showers. There were common room facilities, but they are dark, damp and decrepit. The staff were the worst part of the stay. Particularly the Australian guy who stays and works there with his girlfriend. They stayed in the adjacent room to ours and played music and loud movies well int the early hours of the morning despite knowing there were people right next door. He actually made us really uncomfortable during our stay, we couldn't sleep and we had to listen to his disgusting conversations with his girlfriend. Not at all appropriate. As for the other guy who works there, absolutely useless.

Would not stay there again. Budget more for this town so you don't end up here.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

We travelled to Cesky based solely on the pub crawl rafting hostel 99 offers - it didn't disappoint!

We had booked a private room/private bathroom & we were really pleased with the room. It was actually situated down some stairs behind the hostel and looked to be under somebodys house but the room was spacious and very tidy. A window overlooked the river and we were treated to the sound of the river all night (we had the window open, once closed it blocks it out). The only downside to this room was that wifi couldn't reach us. Apparently they are looking into this though.
We still had access to the kitchen and hostel facilities (incl wifi in common areas).

We had breakfast at deli 99 (yummy waffles) and also enjoyed lunch there as well as restaurant 99.
We found staff to be friendly and happy to suggest restaurants etc in old town.
If you visit in summer I would suggest the rafting pub crawl. It was just a really fun day, meeting like minded people and cheap drinks cruising along the river - sweet!

Hostel was ideally located (approx 15min walk to main bus station and 5mins to Spicak bus station). It only took a few mins to reach castle and main square.

Would definitely recommend to others - great vibe & comfortable accommodations :)

Excellent prices, service and atmosphere at hostel 99. Dzender who works front desk is an awesome guy and is willing to help you with anything you need right away, he wont tell you to come back later. Has comfy beds, nicely equipped kitchen and plasma tv with over 200 movies. They also organise the river rafting pub crawl and have a free beer keg every wednesday afternoon.

My friend who got food poisoning the night before we checked out was in a really bad way but Dzender said she was ok to keep sleeping in her bed right up until we had to leave for our bus at 3pm. he even went to the restaurant next door to get her a drink to help with her stomach and gave it to her for free.

Room Tip: better off getting a dorm room because the private rooms are across the street in another building
