I really like this place. I was here over a year ago for a few days while hostel-hopping and it's one of my favorite (and #1 most memorable) places to stay in Prague. It's relatively inexpensive and in a great location (Zizkov - outside of center and loads of cool "local type" places around.)
Staff is great, it has a kitchen (a must for me,) has a good social atmosphere (I've had some very interesting social experiences here!) and has a nice cozy hostel feel.
The only complaint is that wifi can suck sometimes (especially during morning and evening when everyone is there,) and some rowdy guests have been known to shout and yell and slam doors at 4-5 AM. Not the hostel's fault, of course.
Otherwise I highly recommend this place especially if you're a solo traveler. You'll have no issues meeting people!
