Liked: The facilities were good and on the whole clean. The place was cleaned everyday. There was also a TV room and a number of films to watch in your own lanaguage. Internet facilities were good too as was the wifi and the free towel (but you have to ask for it). Breakfast was an extra but fair and could be easily utilised better to make sandwiches for an afternoon snack later. The self service kitchen was a boon especially when cash was getting tight.

Disliked: You have to be careful about the rooms you pick. I stayed in three different rooms. The most expensice room in the place is right at the top of the building - not the best place to be at the height of summer as heat rises! It also states on the website that the particular room came with a wash room but fails to mention you were to share it with the dorm below. I would say the best rooms I stayed in were the cheaper ones.

Liked: I absolutely loved this hostel. It was so very clean and it was located right under prague castle. You can walk everywhere worth seeing from this hostel, but if you don't want to there is a tram stop and Molestranska metro stop nearby. The beds were wooden frames which didn't make much noise and the lockers underneath are huge. I would recommend this hostel to everyone, simply beautiful. Wifi is okay and their computers are really fast! Met some great people in the lounge.

Disliked: nothing.

Liked: The location of the hostel was great, literally right beside Prague Castle and a 5 minute walk to lots of restaurants, bars and the Charles Bridge. We arrived to the hostel quite early on in the day and although the room was not ready when we arrived we could still use the internet facilities, the television and dvd's which both had lots of English options and the kitchen facilities. The breakfast was good value for money.

Disliked: We had paid for the 4 bedroom shared dorm (Room 43). This was on the top floor and there was no lift which wasn't a problem at all for us. On the top floor there is a door that takes you in to rooms 43 and 44. Through the door you immediately enter room 44 which is a 10 bed sharing dorm, you need to walk through this room and up a set of stairs which leads you on to the 4 bed room. However, the people in the 10 bed dorm could have came and went in our room as they pleased as there was nothing separating the rooms. We also had to share the bathroom with the 10 people downstairs, which also wasn't a problem. I doubt I would stay at this hostel again purely because we paid for the 4 bed dorm but effectively, were staying in a 14 bed dorm.

Liked: Nice place. I liked the staff and the beds were comfortable.

Disliked: it was up a hill towards the castle which is nice but hard rolling your luggage all the way up there. I still liked it though because it was a great location and can't help that the tram doesn't stop up there.

Liked: The facilities were in good condition and were clean. The breakfast was awesome. Bread, jam, cereal, juice, milk, some sliced meat, cheese, etc. It's worth the 79 koruna (all-you-can-eat too!). Don't need to wash the dishes too so it was quite nice. The location is excellent, not really close from the airport or main train station but you can reach quite everything by tram around Prague so it's fine. From the airport you can take the bus but I didn't take it because it never show within 45 min waiting (supposed to pass 3 times during that time). The bed bunk are good construction and don't crack. Mattress is fine and you have a little light and some outlet close. The nice thing is the locker : it's a drawer right under the bed, it use a big lock. You can fit a 40L backpack and a laptop bag easily. They provided a nice map and the staff were quite helpful for tram questions, etc.

Disliked: It was quite cold in the entire building. During the night the temperature was about 12-15 celsius and all the windows were open. It was freezing in the morning. There was construction in the building, from 9AM to 7PM, it was quite annoying especially on morning after a hard night. The washing machine cost is too expensive : about 7$US... come on.

Liked: This hostel was in a great location, just below the castle. It was a short walk to across the river. The hostel itself was very clean and spacious. The lockers were great and the bathroom was clean and the shower was like a normal shower at home. The staff was friendly.

Disliked: Nothing. The hill its on is a pain to walk up, but the entirety of Prague is hilly.

Liked: The hostel is at a nice location between the Charles Bridge and the castle. Even thought it might be a bit of a walk with a heavy backpack uphill, in the end the hostel is worth every step. The beds are very comfortable with good mattresses, so this should not interrupt a good night sleep. :)

Disliked: The staff weren't the most social type, but still nice.
