Liked: This hostel was ideal for my style of travel. They have a a kitchen with a fully functioning stove and a fridge that they keep clean. The common areas are really spacious and I really appreciated that they had a vending machine for food and beer if you wanted, at really good prices. They also have a coffee vending machine. The rooms were not cramped and they were clean. The mattresses weren't worn down and the staff is super helpful. This hostel suits my kind of traveling because I am traveling solo but I really hate HUGE hostels. This one was perfect for me. Lots of space to breathe, a kitchen for preparing your own meals, and just a calming atmosphere. There wasn't too much interaction with the staff so I can't really comment on that, but all-in-all, this was one of the better hostels I've stayed at.

Disliked: DO NOT opt for the breakfast at 2+kk restaurant for the 4£. First, it's a bit of a walk... not a big issue but you can't be bothered in the morning especially if you don't know where exactly it is. My friends and I got lost so we missed the time window (our fault so we went the next day). Second, they are assholes, or at least one blonde waitress and her coworker were in the morening. My friends ordered tea and they wanted honey. So the girl gave MEone honey but I repeated that, no, my friends wanted honey so we just need one more. She rolled her eyes and brought back two more, obviously not understanding what I had said but didn't bother, just already treated us like an inconvenience. Also, they don't tell you what's on the menu so when they brought out eggs and bacon (my friends are vegetarian), we kindly (really i mean it) asked to get it w/o bacon and maybe with cheese instead. My friends speak Spanish and so couldn't communicate; I translated for them.The waitress through the biggest hissy-fit ever and took the plates away and stormed off to the kitchen. And when my friend tried to say please and thank you for fixing this, she turned around and blamed us and said that we needed to tell them beforehand.But they didn't tell us what was on the menu for breakfast!So after that episode they just brought out a plate of bread for them. Look, I've stayed in loads of hostels and everything so I'm not picky. Also, I've worked IN a restaurant and hostel for a long time. But how that girl treated my friends was appalling and I was quite surprised at her rude attitude and I thought I had to say something. I felt bad for my friends who were trying to communicate as much as they could.All-in-all, don't get the breakfast: they are assholes and it's not even worth it.

Liked: The location is okay. Not the fancy part of Prague but everything's in walking distance. Also close to the metro station.They have wifi, kitchen, hot shower for all day. It's good enough for me, for this price!There's always someone at the reception for 24 hours. They were nice and helpful.

Disliked: As I didn't expect much for this price, nothing really.My roommate was a bit annoying and it was so loud outside at night, but it's nothing to do with the hostel so.But maybe it'sbetter to have some kind of sign outside with the name of the hostel.

Liked: This is such a good hostel, the location is perfect. Being just outside the centre of town, it brings the price right down, but it is such a short walk to the centre that you wont feel like you're outside of it. The staff are also really friendly and helpful and make everything so easy for you while you are staying there.

Disliked: Nothing much to complain about. The toilet paper is probably the worst part but that was the case in a lot of Prague.
