Stayed there as I had to be very early in Prague in the next morning, booked for a very cheap price, room is small, beds are rock hard, an old office building converted to a hotel and it feels. Shared bathrooms, wifi worked well. The location is great, 5 minutes by foot from Andel metro station.

This hostel has only great location. Choose this if you don't care about accomodation and you just need a place to sleep. The staff is ok. Room was fairy well clean. Microwave didn't work. WiFi works only on 2nd floor... I'm sure I will never come back there.

First of all, it's a hostel, not a hotel. So, be aware of what you chose and don't be pretentious! It's located 20m from the tram station and 10 minutes from the city centre. It's quite clean and very quiet (you can really get a good night sleep). In our 3 nights stay we only spent 12 hours in this...

After we told in the reception anything changed. So we complained again and again and the next day was a little bit better. Second problem...

Stayed accidentally at this place, Kafka's bizarre experience having to hand the key each time I left, rooms small, smelly, unpleasant and very noisy from the street. Although the hostel is claiming to be the cheapest accommodation in Prague, for a single room without any amenities where you can not make a step charged close to 30 EUR. It is...

Stayed for 2 nights during a bachelor party. Everything is very dirty and very very old. One receptionist was very unfriendly and charged us 50 Euro for a stain we made on the carpet in the hallway. It was obvious that he kept the money for himself. The next day he came up with another random fee of 500CZK. Coincidentally...

The place seemed like a good deal, close to where we went for a concert, simple but cheap, own kitchen, nothing fancy, but we didn't want a posh place. There are unexpected inconviniances though, for examlpe the place seems clean at first sight, but the ladie's bathroom was in such a state by the evening I had to use the...
