Liked: Handy for Metro and late night buses. Generaly a clean and tidy hostel.

Disliked: They have recently had a water leak which has come through into the kitchen so there is a funny smell and a damp carpet. Modern technology could have assisted the drying process but they seem happy to leave it to nature.

Liked: We booked a dorm for this night, we ended up in a shared room for the same price, so it was quite a pleasant surprise. Otherwise, very good location and good value

Disliked: Cleanliness: could be worked on, mostly regarding bathrooms. Also, a little noisy during the night, since the Hostel is on a big street/boulevard.

Liked: Was very close to the Pavlova metro station. Plenty of shared bathrooms so that was never a problem.

Disliked: Was a 30 minute walk to Old Town Square. Was pretty much deserted when we were there so we couldn't meet other travellers.

Liked: The location is really good. In general is quite OK. They have two fridges in which to store your food, which is really good. The internet is quite ok and the computer they have (although it would be better if they had more than one) is really useful.

Disliked: There are too few showers. The lockers don't work as they should. I traveled with a friend and they wouldn't give us another set of keys, which in the hostel is necessary because you might need an extra key for the kitchen.

Liked: Very close to a metro station, so it was convenient.

Disliked: Have been sweating since I stepped in the property. No A/C and there's no real good air coming in the windows so everyone is very hot all the time. They should at least put in some fans or ceiling fans.

13 July 2010 Mia would recommend this property

Liked: We stayed on the 5th floor in one of the private rooms. The floor had a kitchen that had a refrigerator. On the downstairs floor it had a stove if you wanted to cook that you could use. It was VERY clean and secure and quiet. Simple but perfect if you arent looking for a lot.

Disliked: Its not the best hostel for meeting people. The location is a little outside of the main center but Prague is easy to get around.

Liked: Really close to the station which makes it easy to arrive or go to other places from the hostel; takes sometime to the old town area and the castle if you want to visit all these places on foot.But 1 thing I'm not so happy with is there's not enough cooking utensils even though they have a stove and pans and plates. Can't even find a cook's knife! (was in a 8-people dorm room on the 1st floor)
