“I'd permamently live there.”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

As said in all reviews, this place definitely makes you feel like home. Doesn't look like a hostel, more than a friend's house. Interior is cozy, with all wooden floor-ceiling-everything, big rooms with kinda japanese aisthetic, (only one) bathroom but again really impressive in terms of architecture, kitchen everybody can use, and a balcony/deck which is the best thing there: wooden tables (even a chess table) and chairs, cozy sofa, flowers and all positive mood. Drinking coffee over the river and with a view to all traditional houses with their yards by the river...fantastic. You have to leave your shoes by the door when you enter the house, but this was fine cause you could tell that everything was very very clean in there. Skippy is really friendly and helpful, we enjoyed talking with her. Pitty we didnt see her perform! I would go back there any time i would suggest it to anyone visiting Cesky Krumlov:]

Staying in this hostel is one of the best experiences in Cesky Krumlov. The window of the room faces the Vltava River, which gives an amazing view and sound of the river. The hostel is located 5 min walk to the city center. Skippy is always kind and helpful. She arranged us the shuttle and the kayak service with reasonable price. The only thing is that it was a bit difficult to find when you first arrive. Surely I will come to CK again next year and I will stay here again!

Really great location, just 15 min walk up to the castle through the castle gardens, which is a much easier climb than through the main entrance. The beds were comfy, location is quiet and the patio overlooking the river is simply fantastic. Skippy was an excellent host - if you're lucky, you can see her perform lovely Czech music at a local cafe during your stay. My favourite hostel anywhere so far!

Cesky Krumlov it's just a lovely city. I enjoyed every minute of my stay in this place maybe aldo thank's to kindnsess and hospitality of the young owners of hostel skippy.
The hostel is located at 5 minute walking to the most important square, beside the nice river which run into the city.
Ambient is a little naive and we liked it so much. it seems to stay in some friends house, very confortable, Our room, in the first floor was very big. A nice soft bed and a windows to the river. Also good was the breakfast in the terrace. I really should spend all my day sitted there looking and listening the river.
Of course it's not the Hitlon but it's a good choice to discover this fantastic spot of czech republic. I really reccomend that to anyone want enjoy the city. Hope to come back soon.

While the name is Hostel Skippy, staying here feels more like being invited into someone's home. It is a small building located right on the Valtala River, about a 10 minute walk from the heart of town. There are many things that make Hostel Skippy special. First & foremost are Skippy & Teresa. They are both extremely welcoming, friendly, and laid-back people who really want to help you enjoy all that Cesky Krumlov has to offer. The terrace in the back overlooks the river and hills and is perfect for relaxing while you enjoy a book, meal or glass of wine.

We stayed in the private room upstairs and thought that it was perfect for a 3-night stay. The room was spacious with a small dining table, coffee table, and two lounge chairs. The plants and decorations in the room, plus its great river view, made it feel like home; these features were a welcomed change from the sterile feel of so many hostels & hotels.

Like the bedroom, the shared kitchen and bathrooms are what you would expect when staying in someone's home. They are nothing fancy, but serve their purpose well. We had a great time here and would definitely stay again.

A few things to note:
They have a dog. So if you're allergic, you may want to stay elsewhere
There is only 1 shower.
You have to take your shoes of inside.

None of these things were an issue for us. Just FYI.

Room Tip: The private room is worth the money over a dorm bed. Really nice place to stay!

In 2011 I set off to see the world.I could have done just that and had an awesome time, but I randomly chose to stay at Hostel Skippy and ended up having a home away from home.This is way more than a backpackers or hostel- it has a heart and soul. It redefined fun, traveling spirit (v different from being a tourist) and set me in good stead for really appreciating the Czech Republic and it's people. I has a wonderful time there indeed!
