“Great location, decent room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

Excellent location, very short walk to centre of Prague. Fob entry made property feel secure as main door was always locked, also option to lock door to the floor (though obviously other people staying on the floor have keys and may not always lock it). Bathroom only shared on floor (1 private double room and a dorm). Helpful chap working there, boiler flooded during our stay, but was dealt with efficiently (even though it was late at night).

I was initially travelling with four other friends, however they could not make it last minute and I had to change the reservation but they still offered me the 4 seater dorm all to myself! The hostel was located very close to a tram stop and a sub station, further it was only a few minutes walking distance from the city square. Very friendly staff as well.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a cheap place to stay in Prague.

This hostel was great. Walking distance from Old Town, Castle, Charles Bridge, astronomical clock, etc, and they provided a map. 15mins from Florenc Bus Station.

The staff were lovely, they provided an adaptor (no charge, deposit required) and when we asked they taught us some czech words like hi and thanks.

The private room was fairly basic, but had the essentials. A mini fridge, bowls (although oddly, no spoons!), mugs, kettle, wifi, a TV with some Czech and international channels.

The bathroom was shared but always felt clean.

We really enjoyed our stay and felt comfortable coming back to the room to chill out after a long day.

It's set in a noisy area, with other hostels around and a big bar/club on the corner and the noise echoes around the close buildings; if you're a light sleeper I wouldn't recommend it, but we just slept right through it.

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hostel last July and it was great. It is very close to the nearest metro station, but it isnt too far to walk into town either. We walked back to hostel after a night out on the town at a great club near the Charles Bridge. Very clean and our room was reasonably spacious. As it was a top floor room it also had its own balcony which is lovely to sit out on, especially when the nights are warm during the summer.

This place is a great little find. Very close to everything you'd need. Walking distance to the old town and across the various bridges. Just up the road from the Opera House but in a quiet side street.
Parking is nearby too, on street until 8am or something.
Rooms are spacious and even though our room was adjacent to the street, we weren't disturbed by football. Then again, it was 4am when we got back to our rooms.
Front desk are friendly and helpful. We were late checking out and even though they moaned, we didn't exactly get chased out of there.
Bathroom is massive, our room had a kitchen as well. No idea why but a nice touch.
Get there!
