Liked: Way better than I expected. I stayed at a different hostel before this place and i wish I had stayed here the whole time. Very clean, yes you have to walk up a big hill but you are soooo close to many awesome main attractions, restaurants, things to do ect. Really enjoyed this place

Disliked: Really strong smell of cleaning products throughout hostel made me feel sick.

Liked: This hostel had an amazing location right under Prague Castle in an area with so much character. The hostel itself was beautiful and exceeded my expectations.

Disliked: Everything about the hostel was amazing except for the staff. The first night we got in, the lady was nice, but the one that runs the breakfast was another story. She accused us of trying to steal the breakfast after we had paid for it and she had taken each of our tickets from us but could only find 4 out of 5 tickets when she came back 5 minutes later and yelled at each of us to try to make us buy another ticket (mind you the value was about £3) but eventually the lady at the front desk went back through her register and proved we had indeed all paid. We recieved no apology whatsoever.

Liked: I felt safe, and I liked the beds. So comfortable!

Disliked: It was on a giant hill that took forever to climb up! BUT it is located literally five minutes from Prague Castle, which is the top of that hill, so basically most of your walking is done.

Liked: Nice rooms in a great, old building. First hostel dorms I've stayed in in awhile with only single level beds, no top bunks, nice. Staff gave us advice on places to eat, etc. I like this location better than the hostel I stayed at in the Old Town Square because it's not so packed with tourists, but still right next to the castle and just across the river from the square.

Disliked: The common room is very small and not much of a place to meet others. No bar--but they do sell beer in the front room.

Liked: The room was very comfortable,great space to keep your things save they even give you a padlock. The breakfast is simple but cheap so it's okay. Nice choice.

Disliked: The towel they give u is a little bit small. The hostel is a little bit more far than the description of 300mts but that's not a real dislike, just so others now.
