Where do I even begin...
The room we stayed in, while very large, was so hot inside I felt like I was going to pass out. There's no AC and no fan. We opened all six windows and this barely made a difference. It was only a mildly warm day outside, so I'd hate to think how hot it would've been on an actual hot day!
This hostel caters to tour companies like Topdeck and Contiki. Indeed, both were there the night of our stay. Even though the hostel clearly and overtly advertises no noise after 11pm because it is illegal and there is a police station down the road, we were woken up all night by people returning to their rooms, presumably after the pub crawl, so they had no regard for anyone else and were yelling and slamming doors all over the place.
You are not allowed to close the shutters outside the windows for "security reasons" (there is a huge fine if you do anyway), and the curtains look like thin bed sheets. Therefore, just as all the guests were starting to quiet down and go to sleep, from 5am the sun was streaming into our room and we still couldn't sleep!
There were no hand towels provided in the bathroom, nor soap or handwash (other PLUS hostels I've stayed at did provide towels and soap). There were also disturbing stains all over the tiled floors and walls of the room.
Lastly, I agree with all other reviewers who have said this area is the slums of Prague. It is far too long a walk to get into the city, and although the trams are close by... why not just stay somewhere closer (and presumably nicer) and avoid the hassle?
