“What a lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

The owner of the hostel, skippy, is such a great person! She's nice and she's always ready to give you good advices: all that you need to see, cool restaurants , and activities.

The place is very cool and cosy with a beautiful terrace above the river. So nice!
The rooms are cleans, there is a skylight in the bathroom (so pretty) and a cool atmosphere.

If you're looking for a place, don't hesitate, and go there !

This is one of the best places I've ever stayed at. The price is quite reasonable, it's cozy and friendly. The owners Skippy and Olga are lovely and know a lot about Česky Krumlov and will give you the best advice for places to go to. We've just stayed for one night and I wish it were more. I will definitely go back! The view on the river and the sound of the water give you that kind of peaceful feeling you think you'd find just in exotic places, but don't need to go far! Lovely getaway, just 10 minutes from the touristy centre.

Amazing hostel with a river view. Skippy is warm and friendly and it was a pleasure to spend a couple of days at her place. Cesky Krumlov is a fabulously tiny town and Skippy offers awesome suggestions on things to do (do ask her about the trek in the Sumava forest) and places to eat. The rooms were clean and the house had a welcoming and cozy feel to it.

P.S: Skippy is also a very talented musician and do visit her gig if you get a chance

This is one of the best hostels I stayed on while backpacking over the summer. I absolutely loved it here!!!!

When we first arrived, we all sat on the backporch overlooking the beautiful river. Skippy showed us a map of the area and told us which places were the best to check out. We really appreciated her going out of her way to try to make our short time in CK as wonderful as possible! She even made sure we had transportation for our next leg of the trip.

We stayed in the private double upstairs. It was well worth the few extra crowns! The bed was very comfortable. Better than some hotels even. Plus, the view is spectacular. The bathroom is located right next to the double room upstairs and is communal.

If you're really out of shape or have some limited mobility, Skippy's might not be the best place for you. It's about a 5-10 minute walk to the center that, like many of the locations in this area, contain numerous and slightly steep stairs. There were a few times I was huffing and puffing, but it felt wonderful after. Kept me from feeling guilty after drinking all those calories worth of czech beer!

Oh, obviously, it's a pretty mellow and quiet place. That said, if you plan on getting crazy, this is probably not the hostel for you. In fact, probably not the town for you either. Save it for Prague, folks! ;) CK and Skippy's is the perfect place to get your cultural experience in.

Room Tip: The double is well worth the slight splurge!

For a small little town like Cesky this is exactly what you would expect, a nice little hostel located right on the river. What you get is a very small, friendly hostel that makes you feel very comfortable. Our experience was a good one

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!
