Great location - once you find it, the streets can be a little tricky - and certainly clean. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm, no bunk beds (nice) and a locker, reading lamp and shelf per bed, which makes for a much more pleasant shared room experience.
The staff were neither bad nor fabulous, they were doing their job. The 200k deposit is annoying though as when you leave you're probably heading out of the Czech Republic and are stuck with crowns you don't need.
The wifi isn't great but it's there, and there are free computers for those who need them. The kitchen is terrific - big, clean and well stocked.
I would recommend Hostel Tyn for price, location and cleanliness - the 3 things I look for most. Those wanting a big common area and a social aspect may be a bit disappointed. There is a common room but it's small, and certainly not very busy.
