STEPHANIE PARKER thinks…

"The atmosphere and the range of people that you end up meeting! It is a very sociable hostel with a good cheap bar and it's easy enough to jump on a tram and be in the centre in less than 10 minutes."

Liked: The atmosphere and the range of people that you end up meeting! It is a very sociable hostel with a good cheap bar and it's easy enough to jump on a tram and be in the centre in less than 10 minutes.

Disliked: The only fault is that there is no light in the back beer garden, so when it's dark you can't carry on playing cards... A very minor dislike!

Liked: If you are a student, then this place will meet your wildest dreams. It has friendly and helpful staff, international company from all over the world, nice music at bar, convenient breakfast option, a lot of bathrooms and even a small garden!

Disliked: If you have extra money and valuable things then put them in a safe at the counter and visit this place anyway - it's really worth seeing.

Liked: I like the laidback feel there. It feels somehow like being in the 70ties. Not much changed there since the hostel opening, nice for me. The cellar bar room is cosy and has an athmosphere, one feels well there, no freezy feeling.

Disliked: The condition of the bed stuf/inlets etcf: dirty and grey, pillows, blankets, duvets it this is the name of it, whats inside your blanket, the pillow itsself without cover... had not been cleaned for months, thats how they looked like. But it is possible to wash these items in a maschine. Bed linen was clean, though. Smoking in the evening, at the bar and recetion is disgusting nowadays, but very common in the Eastern states. The habit of smoking...

Liked: Very friendly staff and cozy room above the tavern.

Disliked: There was no internet in our room, but it is in the first floor. And there is smoking everywhere, but it is not the Hostel's problem, because smoking is allowed everywhere in Prague.

Liked: The basement foyer/bar was excellent and you can happily smoke indoors. When we arrived there was a live acoustic band playing and the whole place was great. The tall, old-style building was great to be in too and great views from up on high.

Disliked: The decor is dated and the fridges supplied pretty poor indeed.

Liked: I loved everything about this hostel! I would recommend this place if you like cheap food within blocks and cheap beer right downstairs from your room. A party hostel with a chill vibe. It seemed like a lot of people, including on and off duty staff, liked to hang out in the bar and the garden all hours of the day

Disliked: I don't think there was much to complain about.

Liked: What is there not to like. This is the best hostel in Europe with the friendliest staff that will go out of their way for you to have the best possible holiday ever. I've probably stayed here 10 times the last 4years. It is another home away from home.

Disliked: Nothing whatsoever

Liked: Cheap

Disliked: You have to get through the bar before getting in to the hostel. The radiator was not working, we had to get 2 duvets. Hot water not readily available, so you might have to shower with cold water in the winter. Kitchen is small and seems that only the microwave and fridge are working. Bad sound proof, you can here the doors slamming every time someone comes back as we were on the first floor. Its a 5 mins walk from the hostel to the tram station and 3 stations away from the city centre. Last tram is around 11.45pm.

Liked: The staff were extremely helpfull. The 25 bed dorm is one heck of an awesome room! Huge, like a hospital ward and totally an amazing room. Loved it, even tho it was New Year and obviously a tad noisy with all the comings and goings, but the room made up fot that. I want a room like that one!

Disliked: Was a bit away from the action, but it did have the best local restaurants around. really good local food at awesome prices too.
