“Clean, quiet, and a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2007

We came to Hostel Tyn because we were fleeing the hellish Hostel Aldivia, and we just walked in and booked the triple room in person.

Hostel Tyn is inexpensive for Prague, but has a great location right behind the Old Town Square, but is still clean and quiet. There isn't any hostel social life to speak of, but the location is worth it.

The hostel doesn't have any computers or telephones that you can use, which is a drawback, as we had to use the somewhat priceyinternet at Bohemia Bagel,a few blocks away. I'd recommend it anyway, as it's hard to find someplace so inexpensive in the center that isn't a flophouse.

I stayed at this Hostel over spring break with 3 friends, and had a great experience. It is very clean - we had a room for four, and other than the fact that the bathroom was in the hall, we felt like we had our own hotel room. The entire place is very well kept, convenient to get into and out of, and with staff manning the front door, a key to your external hall, your room, and your locker within your room, I felt like there was plenty of security.

The location was amazing, literally a few hundred yards from the old town square, but it was tucked away from all of the bustle enough to feel quiet - a good respite from some of the crazy tourist areas.

At the time we stayed there the price was 400 crowns per night per person, which is a very reasonable price - about $20 - especially considering the location.
The staff won't exactly go out of their way to be warm and welcoming, but that is fine - they are not at all mean, and just let guests mind their own business.

I very highly recommend the Tyn!

I was recommended this Hostel by my friends parents who had been staying in a nearby 4* hotel.

Where to start?! Ok, the rooms are very very basic - just a bed, cupboard with locks, power points and a mirror. But the rooms are very clean and well maintained. There is a basic shower room and toilets, again very clean and basic. The staff are friendly, didn't really need to ask them much to be honest.

However, the real winner with this place is its location and price. Mere minutes from the Old town square, in a quaint and safe location, only about £7ish per night for a 4-bed room. Lots of little cafes and restaurants tucked away nearby, close to the beautiful opera house, within walking distance of wenceslas square. Superb.

Great for anyone looking for just a comfy place to kip in and a base from which to explore this most amazing city. Oh, there is a really good Indian/Thali restaurant just below the hostel - very good and cheap food if you can't be bothered to wander in the early eve (though it closes quite early).
