SUPER! friendly family-like atmosphere. Helena and her staff do everything to make life simple and your trip great. The place is spotless, beds comfortable and dorm-like bathing facilities totally private and extremely clean. The food is plentiful and tasty. Dinners are offered but must be reserved in the morning. They are plain, local cooking but plentiful. The common/dining room does not have easy chairs but audio equipment, tv, books and games are plentiful. The walls are adorned with items of gratitude sent to these ladies from visitors in appreciation of their hospitality.
Tram N17 to stop Nadrazi Holesovice gets you there - about a 7 min walk to the hostel along a sportspath or a 2 min drive. At night the walk can be scary but it is perfectly safe. A tree-lined sports path adjacent to a golf course. There are many steps up to the hostel proper and a snackbar below the building where the locals come to eat. This can be a means of a pleasant evening alongside the river meeting the locals.
Only positive things to say here by 2 lifetime yh members in their 60's; highly recommend the place to anyone. If you are lucky; and a couple; they might give you a room to yourself. We had a 4-bed room but only charged for 2. The place filled up but they let us be alone.
Should you go there, say hello to Helena and her ladies from Sandra and Joe.
