Prague Tyn
Ranked #114 of 702 Speciality Lodging in Prague
Reviewed 10 September 2011

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.

The hostel location is great- just off the Old Town, central in Prague, and close to so many sights and attractions. The directions we got from the hostel guided us safely from the airport to the hostel without knowing a word of Czech. The staff was extremely helpful with checking us in, checking us out, setting up tours, and recommending restaurants and things around the Old Town.

The rooms were spacious and had large lockers and a table in the center. The beds weren't the most comfortable things, but they did their job. There's a shared kitchen in the basement that is very nice, as well as several computers for guests. The bathrooms were shared by the floor and clean. It's a bummer that you have to be in the basement to access the WiFi, but at least they have it. Only complaint is that it's not a social hostel at all- perfect if you're booking a full room for a group, like we did, but not great for travelers looking to make friends in their hostel.

Definitely a good, cheap option for Prague.

I arrived via public transportation and thoroughly enjoyed meandering through the Old Town streets trying to find the hostel. Once I located the TYN sign on the main street, I had a smooth check-in with one of the great hostel staffers. No matter which currency you pay with, exact change will be appreciated.

I ended up sharing a four-bed room with three other friends and we were all pleased to find we had comfortable beds (no bunk beds), each with a reading light and night stand. In addition, each person had a large locker available in the room (locks and keys provided). The restrooms were clean and even with a full house I never had to wait for a toilet or shower. The hostel felt very secure with a controlled front door, a locking hall door and a lock on the room door. I especially liked that I did not have to leave my key at the front desk when coming or going.

This hostel has an amazing kitchen - probably the best hostel kitchen I have ever used! It was clean, well stocked, and large enough for several people to be in at once. There are about five relatively new computers available for use 24 hours a day and in the computer area and common room free wifi is available.

The location and price can't be beat and I would definitely recommend this hostel to budget conscious travelers visiting Prague.

We stayed at Hostel Tyn for three nights. Two were planned but the third came due to a train strike. They happily gave us a room for the third night. We didn't have to bring sheets and they cleaned our room after our departure. Free internet was so good though we had to stay in touch with our friends at home through Facebook. To be able to look for stuff to do was also easy with the five computers in the common room. We stored our breakfast in the two fridges in the collective kitchen and a tiny supermarket was just around the corner. The thing WE liked the most was that it was so sheep for being located just a two minute walk from the Old Town Square. I totally recommend staying at Hostel Tyn!

The hostel is in a great location and easy walk to most everything or easy access to public transport. The rooms are clean and it was pretty quiet. Computers available and wifi down in the common area. If you are looking for a safe, quiet, clean place to stay in the middle of town it's great. Staff wasn't overly friendly but they weren't rude either. More like hey this is my job and I'm punching the clock. I've stayed in some fabulous places (7 Hostel Sant'Agnello) and some dumps as well (Hotel Souvenir Florence) and Hostel Tyn is neither fabulous nor a dump. It's nothing special but you'll only be sleeping here since there's so much to do in Prague. It's a good value - think Super 8.

Room Tip: Be specific about what room you want.

This place has it all. It's clean, comfy, secure, and has the best location money can buy. In fact, it's super affordable. I stayed in a 4-bed dorm with all single beds (no bunks!) and each person got their own locker. Bring your own lock. Stay here if you'll be backpacking in Prague!
