Nice communal kitchen and free breakfast and coffee - can't really ask for more. Slight walk into town but not actually that bad. Fab pizza place just down the road as well which is well worth...

Okay, so this place is extremely cheap, so it’s hard to complain, but I will say that it is a bit far from the center of Prague, enough that warranted bus rides. Each bed did not have its own light and outlet which was a bit frustrating but there were plenty of outlets in the room. Each room is big...

We had a great time hanging out with other young backpackers here. If you are older and looking for a quiet, clean, professional, place to stay then look elsewhere. On the other hand if you are looking to party and meet other young travelers this is the place to go! Great sense of community and the staff were awesome. It...

We stayed at the Hostel in a private double room for a few nights in September 2015. The private double room was clean and comfortable. The staff where friendly, and the location is pretty good. There is a bus stop right outside the hostel which goes to the centre of town. The hostel was great value, and also served breakfast...

This hostel was relatively cheap and has a good environment to meet new people, but other then that there are a few things that I was disappointed in. The staff were not very helpful at times and not always friendly. They do your laundry for you but a lot of my stuff was mixed up with others. And when showering...
