"Rooms were clean, and the 16-bed dorm was very quiet. Good shower and toilet facilities, cleaned daily. Three computers were available to use for free. Location is great - close to the old town, and an affordable small…"

Liked: This is a very nice, and newly furbished hostel with a great deal of class for the price you pay for a room. The rooms themselves were very large, and the bathrooms were clean and nice as well. The staff was very helpful and the location was phenomenal, in relation to various sight seeings spots around Praha. Great place, and would definitely recommend staying here to anyone interested!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: good location, nice room, dorms with normal beds (not one on top of each other), a kitchen to use

Disliked: 1. the entrance and area out of the room is very dark, then if you don't find immidiatly where to turn on the light I needed my mobile to light my way. the floor is not everywhere flat then without light it is not easy to walk. 2. personally I missunderstood "self catering" with "breakfast" and was very dissapointed

Liked: The hostel itself was very clean and the room was spacious. We stayed in the 10-bed Women's dorm room and were very comfortable and happy that we had some space to spread out. The bunk beds were also spacious and not frighteningly high as some bunk beds can be. I especially appreciated that the showers were lockable and clean and that our roommates were respectful. The staff was also quite helpful.

Disliked: It should be noted that the hostel is located on a hill. It's easy to get to, but if you have a lot of luggage, you may want to take a taxi. Otherwise, there was not much to dislike! This was one of the best hosteling experiences I have ever had.

Liked: Nice place to stay in, spacious space despite living with other travelers. WiFi connection good. Located near Prague Castle. Staff were friendly.

Disliked: A bit difficult to locate at night, but it should be fine if you have a map. It's a bit far from old town, train/coach station (by walking) but still very walk able. Once, there was no hot water when i tried to take shower at night.

Liked: The hostel was located right beside the castle and was only a 15 minute walk to the old town square. The hostel was always very clean, comfortable beds and pillows, the kitchen is great and fully equipped with everything you need.

Disliked: A little difficult to get back to with public transport, you need at least 1 metro and 1 bus and buses were not as regular at night, which meant I would walk back from the old town or the metro station on my own late at night. During my stay the hostel had Stag parties and school groups coming through. The Stag parties were extremely loud throughout the night. The school groups were mixed in with the other guests rooms, they were loud and kept the whole floor awake until about 3-4am in the morning. I think school groups need to be accommodated in separated rooms from other guests and there should be some rules put in place for noise levels late at night.
