Ritchie's Hostel
Ranked #175 of 678 Speciality Lodging in Prague
Reviewed 25 April 2017

Ritchie's was an interesting experience...to actually find the entrance you have to walk through a souvenir shop/hallway (but the young man that owns the shop is super nice and really interesting, you should talk to him if you get the chance). Once inside, you travel through halls and staircases to find the check in desk.

The girl at the front was super nice and helpful. The stay wasn't bad. The beds were definitely lacking...but if you forage for an extra pillow it helps.

Location was AMAZING. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Less than a 5 minute walk to the square and astronomical clock. INCREDIBLE home made czech food restaurant right across the street. The streets are always busy and full of people...very safe area.

There is a homeless man that sleeps in the entrance to the souvenir shop door at night, and sometimes he is a little agitated.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again for easy, cheap nights in the middle of the most beautiful part of the city.

Room Tip: The 5 person room was very spacious and was well situated. Because the hostel is in a busy district...

This hostel is really cheap, and the location is nice, right next to the famous Charles Bridge, but it's better to spend a bit more and stay someplace better.

The room was dirty, the hallways stinked, all the hostel doors were in some way broken, the windows were in no way covered, so the sunlight came in pretty early, and the wifi sucked, it was only available in the common area, and was extremely slow.

The bathroom was relatively clean, but the shower had no pressure at all, and the water wasn't that warm.

The "kitchen" was in the common area, other than dishes, cutlery, and cups, all you had to cook your meals was a microwave, so choose wisely.

In conclusion, if you want to live like a rat, stay here, if not, don't be cheap like I was and spend a little more to go someplace decent.

We stayed at hotel, two bed room. Everyone here was really helpful and nice. We could leave our bags at hotel after we gave back the key so we could sightsee. It is 400m from Charles bridge. Three minutes from the city market square. Awesome people, awesome localization.

Really enjoyed this hotel.
the location is perfect, very close to old town square and wenseslas square.
The rooms are large, clean and tidy and the staff are helpful with things you want to know.
Didn't have breakfast but for the price we paid (£8 per person per night) was very cheap and we were happy with what we got in return.
Definitely would come back. No question.

Best thing about the hostel was it's location. We were in walking distance to all the major sites in Prague. Their breakfast service was very filling and affordable. I found the service to be very poor however. The hostel should do better screening of the persons who they allow in the rooms with others. Also, they should ensure that they have spear keys for the lockers. If you go here and use a locker be very sure to not lose the key cause you may incur a steep cost.

Room Tip: Please be ensure that you select a room with a private bathroom, you'll have a better experience...
