Hostel Skippy
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I dare you to try and find better hostesses than Skippy and Olga. From the moment you arrive they go above and beyond to make your stay in idyllic Cesky a memorable one. The pension is very clean and charming. There is no bad location in Cesky and Hostel Skippy is located right on the river where you can sit on the patio watching rafters go by. You definitely won't regret staying here!

Room Tip: All rooms are fine

I've been to three hostels in Cesky Krumlov (had to switch every day due to lastminute availability), and this is what I found:

Hostel Skippy: This was my favourite hostel in Cesky Krumlov. The owner Skippy, and her help Olga, are super friendly and fun to chat with. This hostel felt more like someone's home: it's an older, beautiful house, with nice spacious rooms, and a really nice covered deck out the back, with a view on the river. The wifi works best on the deck but is fine over all. There are two toilets and one (non-hostel) shower, but there aren't that many spaces in the hostel anyway, so it doesn't get too crowded and I never found an occupied bathroom. I would definitely go back here!! (And don't think that it's far out of town, it really isn't. It looks far on the map but is just a short walk - Cesky Krumlov just isn't that big).

Recently stayed for 2 nights in the double room.
It's not like any other hostel in Europe - the rooms were very peaceful and homely with a very nice view of the river.
Skippy and Olga showed and recommended to us all the hot spots in town which was very helpful :)
It's abit from the train station but very close to town centre, bus station and local supermarket.

This cozy guesthouse is located right on the Vlatava river, only a short walk from the old town and about a 20 minute walk from the main bus station. Skippy and OLgA are warm and welcoming hosts and have created a lovely place for travellers to chill out.

The rooms are spacious with comfy beds, there's nice hot water in the shared bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen for preparing meals. Best of all is the terrace overlooking the river where it's possible to spend many hours recharging your batteries!

The nearby supermarket and bakery supply breakfast and grocery needs, and the local bar is only a few steps away.

The rustic feel, conversations, books and music my mother and I shared with Skippy and OLgA made our time in Cesky Krumlov very special and we have left with only wonderful memories.

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
