“It's a Hostel Downtown !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2010

On a cheap trip with friends so looking for somewhere basic that we would not spend much time in, this fitted the bill. Fairly handy to central Prague, a few minutes walk to the central areas, kinda set between St Charles bridge area and the very centre square so handy as long as you don't get lost !

Definitley a basic place to stay, we had 4 in a room but it was fine, comfy single beds, clean bathroon, it was a typical old Prague building, almost dungeon like, a maze of rooms and hallways, cheap backpacker type place. Some facilities for eating and internet in the 'common' areas.

One note of caution, we tried to get out of our floor and the hotel in the early hours of the morning and found everthing locked up, no apparent way to get out, slightly worrying, and the fire precautions of these sort of places does worry me a times!
