If you're rushing through Prague you'll want to be closer to the town center. This is an excellent hostel for those with time to enjoy the beautiful river setting, next to a golf course and a very popular roller blading pathway. The rooms and bathroom are immaculate, breakfast was good and the ladies are happy to make you meals (which you pay for), if you tell them in advance. They also offer a laundry service.
The advantage to this hostel is if you're from a green city with lots of parks and you've been hopping from big city to big city, you'll be missing nature. This place is the antidote. Also, it's a direct tram ride into the city, right to the Charles Bridge and a quick walk to anywhere. To get to the train station it's one easy transfer. If you're with a group and travelling to/from the airport, it'll be worth taking a cab. The bus connector between the airport and the metro was hot , over-crowded and smelly the day we came in.
If you're an adament non-smoker it's important to be aware that Vera is a chain smoker and the hallways smell of cigarette smoke which doesn't seem to infiltrate the bedrooms, thankfully. I was travellying with a pre-teen and a teen who at first had a real problem with the smell, but because it was just in the hallway and we were out most of the day, they got used to it.
Safe hostel which looks to be especially fun for groups.
The rooms were wonderfully quiet at night, without traffic noise however at 6:00am on all three morning we stayed, the green behind our room (remember, it's beside a golf course) got mowed. It was a LOUD mower. They finished by around 6:45, just in time for me to get up:-(
