Liked: Great location, well maintained rooms, very clean, great staff.

Disliked: One of the 4 bedroom dorms isn't actually a 4 bedroom dorm. It's a loft above a large dorm without a door. So, if your goal in doing a 4 bedroom is security and or noise, it pretty much negates the point of both. Also, the lockers available but are fairly small, and only large enough to put valuables in. Not bags, or backpacks.

Liked: Stay here. It's so peaceful and tidy. This hostel is in such a charming little street, leading up to the Prague Palace. I loved waking up 10 minutes before the sunrise, and just roll out of bed and go take sunrise pictures. The hostel is so clean (bathroom included), the beds so comfortable, the location amazing, the breakfast buffet delicious. The staff is also extremely friendly.

Disliked: Honestly can't think of anything.

Liked: The hostel was very clean and very well organised. Beds were comfy enough, very clean bathrooms with nice showers and friendly staff. Although I read in other reviews that the hostel is quite far from the city centre, it is in fact very close to the castle, so we spent one night wandering around in this area, which was really nice.

Disliked: You can get breakfast for 75 koruna (about 3 euros), but this was not very elaborate; just bread, ham, cheese, cereal, tea and (rather horrible) coffee.

Liked: After reading other reviews I started to doubt about the location, but honestly, you are about 10 minutes walk for the old town and 2 minutes from the castle (which is great to do at night!). So after staying there for 3 days I can assure you that the location is perfect, okay you do have to go uphill when you go home, but when you leave and are excited to go visit, you go downhill!!! Very clean, there are large lockers under each bed and they provide the lock as well as clean sheet and towel!!! Very friendly staff, thank you Clara for all your good tips and information, she really took the time to help us and indeed was very helpful!!!

Disliked: The only aspect is that the breakfast is serve from 7AM until 11AM and you cannot use the kitchen facilities between 6AM and Noon! Not a big deal when you know it since you can easily manage around but just to let other backpackers know!

Liked: The place was amazing! Very clean and in a beautiful, safe location. Very helpful staff, spoke fluently English. Would definitely go back :)

Disliked: The only thing is that the place it up a hill! Plus there is no elevator! Personally I didnt mind since it was a good work-out, but for people with heavy luggage or maybe on cruches it will be an adventure!! :D

Liked: I have stayed in countless hostels and have to say this is a really lovely and clean hostel. The beds were super confortable, the decor of the place was really clean ans modern and it was right below the castle. The walk up the hill was a bit steep in the heat but nothing really to complain about here. The staff were helpful and really friendly and they had computers that you could use at no extra charge and wifi also. Would def recommend.

Disliked: The walk up the hill but thats only because I am lazy. If you have heavy backpack then I recommend just grabbing a cab there!

Liked: Excellent location, rooms are also quite clean. Definitely good value for money.

Disliked: Bathrooms could use a little work and were shared with a few too many people. ONE MAJOR POINT: be careful when leaving your personal details with their registry, giving them the information allows them to have unauthorized access to your credit card details (when paying by credit card) and initiate fraudulent transactions. This happened to me when I visited and I was not amused. Not sure if it was only one staff member acting independently or if there are multiple perpetrators.

Liked: I have been traveling for 5 months and this is unquestionably the best hostel I have stayed at, EVER. The rooms are so beautiful and everything is really clean. The staff have a great sense of humour and there is a movie room that I didn't even get a chance to use. The bathroom and kitchen facilities there are top notch and and I wish I could have stayed longer. My whole experience there was absolutely wonderful.

Disliked: Having to leave.
