Liked: Good Location, friendly staff and many facilities. And sure: a good price!

Disliked: Everything was good, except for the toilet paper (bad quality). But I think it's a problem in Prague, at all. Nowhere I went had a good toilet paper.

Liked: For the price, this place is great. There's a kitchen area and computers available for the internet, which was fine. The location is fantastic - I was within walking distance of all the major sights, but I like to walk, and if you don't, you're just one block away from a metro station, and restaurants are likewise only a few blocks away. If you want a clean, safe, and friendly place to sleep for a few nights in Prague, this is it.

Liked: This hostel is cheap and very nice. It is in a great location and we never used public transport. There is always someone on shift so it is nice and the kitchen is rather large, but no oven. But you cant have everything. I would reccommend this hostel to those looking for a cheap place to sleep, not necessarily hang out 24/7, because it is in a great location and relatively clean and useful.

Disliked: Kinda sucks that there is a small supply of showers. There are two, but in one small room, so pretty much just one shower. This was not a big deal though.

Liked: Good quality basic accommodation. A little outside the centre, but still a short walk - and in a party town like Prague, that's ideal if you want quiet nights. I would absolutely recommend.

Disliked: My biggests "complaint" would be their doors... the one downstairs is automated and INCREDIBLY slow to open, while the one to my room was very tight, making an awful noise... but, if the doors are all you can complain about - that says something. ;)

Liked: Wifi is very fast, the common room is big with tv and computers. the rooms are ok, the kitchen is not very big. The LOCATION is very good, 4 blocks from the main street and a few metres from metro

Disliked: The staff, one of them was very nice but the next day the other guy did not know about how many people stay in the hostel, first they say that is full so we have to leave and after 30 min say that the housekeeper say that there is beds available. So they NEVER KNOW if for sure you can or not stay there. BE PREPARE FOR SORPRISES!!!!

Liked: the hostel was really cheap and provided good facilities: free (and strong) WiFi, a desktop computer and a well-equipped kitchen with a microwave. We booked a private twin but were upgraded to a four-bed private at no extra cost! while helpful and friendly, some of the staff spoke very limited English. the bathrooms also looked a little old and dirty, and the luggage room was really the receptionist's bunk and the floor was wet. overall, it was still pretty good value for money!
