Clean rooms.The place is centrally located. Night life, old town, Charles bridge, everything is nearby. There is a supermarket next door open till midnight. The kitchen is a nice place to cook and share meals and stories with fellow travelers. The staff, Petra, Inrike, Adam were friendly and helpful.
They plan fun activities like cooking, salsa, beer tasting, walks, etc. I participated in a few. This is especially useful to socialize if travelling alone or if the weather plays foul and you are stuck indoors :) It turned into winter during my stay here :D
Free walking tours are conducted everyday. I did one with Gill, he was very informative, interesting and intense person. We went as a group to a pub and had interesting conversation over some beers. He is more like a friend now.
Someone tried to break the world record in kissing. They didn't succeed :P but we had a great time with Pavelina. She is a kind positive person. She taught me the local dance which I enjoyed a lot. She also does Czech language class, which is great to learn a few words and use them on the locals right away! :) We also cooked apple tarts.
Small criticism, the mixed dorms are not as nice as the female only dorm. Somehow female dorms are prettier, I may be wrong too. I dont know.
Bottom line, great experience!
