“Nice and clean but very barebones even for a hostel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

The staff is friendly and the hostel is in a great location, but the guys beware that there is no shower with an actual lock. The prices are pretty good for the location but you get what you pay for. I stayed with my girlfriend and we didnt even get towels.

This hostel is basically a college dorm. Very minimal. Bed, umm that's about it. Shared showers with low water pressure which is fine because it is Europe. Drains don't work well especially in the ladie's shower. Probably hair clogs. No mirrors and no air in rooms. But you pay for what you get here. Overall it's a-ok!

As for location, it's amazing! Few steps from the square. I barely took the train unless we were extremely tired.

It does get noisy at night and if you have your windows open you hear everything and smell all the smokers.

I stayed here in a group of 7 girls in an 8-bed dorm in July 2013 for 3 nights. The hostel is in an excellent location right off the main square - walking distance from all main attractions in Prague. The beds were very comfortable and I felt secure as there were 2 coded doors before our own room door with lock and key (Lockers also in rooms). No air con however and only 2 small windows, so got a little hot. The bathroom facilities were always very clean and queues were never really an issue. Everyone got a free towel while staying. The hostel is a very reasonable price and the staff were extremely helpful about everything to do in the city (particularly the American woman with red hair). My friend even got help trying to find her lost phone from the hostel reception. Breakfast and packed sandwich for lunch were very useful and saved us a lot of money. Good, free wifi. The hostel was not very social despite the common area downstairs.

It was really close to the city centre. The bathroom and toilets were clean. The "voice of the door" was a bit annoying sometimes. But the main problem of the hostel is, for male people, there is no privacy in bathroom! There is a common bathroom which includes two showers but there is no lock for the door! If you are not comfortable with that, you won't be relax with that.

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it! Free towels and linens are always nice to have and you can't beat the location! The beds were comfortable and the hostel was clean. Only downside is that there is only one male and one female bathroom and only one shower for the wing so there was always a wait in the mornings.

The reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly - Patrick and David gave us some great recommendations on places to go while we were in Prague!

This hostel was a great choice. It is in a perfect location near Oldtown square. The hostel was clean and quiet, and the staff was very helpful. They shared local hotspots and gave directions to tourist favorites. David at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful. The only downside is that the hostel was not very social- there is a downstairs area, but not many people socialized here. Overall, great experience.

I would recommend this place for the location alone, about a block off the main old town square. The hostel itself seemed so so: there was a bit of wait for bathrooms, and the kitchen is small and very overcrowded at breakfast time. There was a queue just to wash your dishes. The breakfast is small too. The room (a twin) was clean and warm, but quite small. The guys at the reception were very friendly and helpful, one even loaning us an umbrella of his own when ours broke. Given how good transport is in Prague, there might be better hostel choices.

Room Tip: I think all private rooms have shared bath.
