“Great facilities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2010

Rooms and beds were huge and really clean, the whole place was very well looked after. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Small free breakfast. Good bar and communal areas, could have made more of it by organising events or something. Quite chilled out. In a bit of an annoying location as you had to get a bus for 15 mins out of the city, ok to walk during the day but not at night.

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The dorm was very big and clean, the beds have a big locker each as well as a little shelf to put things like water, book, phone etc while you sleep. There is a full kitchen and big social area with sofas, table football, pool and free internet in the basement (smells a little bit funky but nothing you can't ignore). The staff are really friendly and helpful and you get a free beer when you arrive! Our dorm at least was big and everyone was really friendly, as were most people in the hostel generally.
It's a bit of a way out from the center but the bus stops right outside and comes frequently, you can be at Old Town Square in about 20 minutes. There are supermarkets nearby.
Overall a really nice place and great value for money!

Stayed here in July 2010. 1 girl and 3 boys, we stayed in the big 18-person mixed dorm. Friendly staff and a very social hostel, we met people from all over. Free internet downstairs is great, although the pool table and stuff in the basement are creepy because it's so dark and musky smelling, but has a very "hostel" feel to it. They provided us with locks, linens, towels, a small and basic breakfast, and a welcome beer! Location is good although not in center of town, but still in the city of Prague, and Prague transportation is very good and easy.

This hostel was very nice we met some great people here that i hope to keep in touch with. Free Internet was AMAZING! Breakfast included was FANTASTIC. Cheap drink available from reception and the common room downstairs was well equiped with pool table and loadsa couches, even if it was a bit dark. quirky place that i would recommend.

i found this hostel to be quite reserved in the way that it isnt the most social hostel i have stayed in, even though there were about 20 beds in my room - the common room is down in the basement which was quite dark and uninspiring

On the whole though i quite liked the hostel, free internet was cool and the breakfast was enough to set you up for the day, its a little way out of town but the transport is pretty good in prague so its not too hard to get where you wanna be.

Staff didnt get too involved with anything, but had information when you needed it.
