Liked: The staff is really friendly. The hostel has everything you could possibly need, it's clean, well located and reasonably priced.

Disliked: The window of our dorm was directly in front of a street light and we had to keep the window open because it was really hot inside (and the air was kind of smelly and saturated). Therefore, the light from the street can be annoying when you go to sleep. Also, the hostel is on a big a busy street with a lot of noise, and there is currently a big construction right across the street, so it can be very noisy. All this is not a problem if you have ear plugs and a sleep mask.

Liked: Lovely atmosphere and group cooking lessons for free were a great opportunity to get to know staff and other travelers. All round a great hostel!

Disliked: Noise from the construction site across street was a bit too early in the morning (from dorm 103) but shouldn't put you off staying here.

Liked: As a solo mature person travelling on my own I found the location great and very friendly helpful staff, 24 hour reception, free walking tours and after dinner puppet show although R rated, free cooking classes where you can meet other guests , Brent was great :) I stayed in room 612 and if you take the stairs, there is 129 of them :)

Disliked: Not really a dislike but a suggestion, maybe some Czech dishes in the cooking class. I did dislike the water pressure which isn't great and the shower head in room 612 is too high for us short people :(

Liked: The location is great, easy to reach with public transport and within walking distance of several attractions. The staff was very friendly and there were many activities organized by the hostel workers.

Disliked: The quality of air in the corridors and rooms was not very good at all times, but the problem was easily fixed by opening the window. Sometimes it was a bit noisy in the night because of other guests.
