Cozy, home-like hostel right next to the centre

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 7, 2007

This is a very nice hostel with a very nice location and friendly staff. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to Václavské náměstí (Wenceslas Square). It's like an appartment on the third floor and there's no lift (so ideal when travelling light or do as I did; get one of your male friends to carry your bag upstairs :)). We had a provate room for us three and it was really nice; basic beds, a table; nothing special but everything we needed. Room was clean and there wasn't too much noise since it's not in the main street and in the first floor. One of our beds was broken so it was just three mattresses put together but we got a fair discount for it and it didn't bother at all, you could still sleep in it perfectly well.
The staff was so nice and helpful. They are not around 24/7 but they had left a lot of notes around the place to make things easier. We had our own key so it was really like being in an appartment. There are two bathrooms but funnily enough one can enter the one upstairs straight from one bedroom (and there's no lock to that room in the bathroom) so it was a bit strange (there's two entrances to that bathroom). Breakfast wasn't included but free coffee and tea was available and sometimes someone had brought some apple pie etc. to the kitchen for everyone. Good cooking facilities even though we didn't use them, and free internet. Not so much of a place to meet new people but more like a place to crash when exploring the town. We paid 15e/night/person so not bad at all. Would definitely stay here again!

Unique Quality: Well, free tea and coffee and internet. Not so much unique qualities but a lot of good qualities!

Directions: Close to the National Museum (Narodni); when facing the museum take the first side road to the right (Ve Smeckách), walk straight on, cross the road and you're on V Tunich. Number 12 is the next door from the restaurant, on your left.

A tiny hostel close to Wenceslas' Square

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 30, 2007

The location of this hostel was pretty much OK, only a couple hundred meters from Wenceslas Square, which has several shops and restaurants open till late.

However, the room was a bit smelly (maybe because it was next to the bathroom and the dampness got trapped and caused this smell) and it was not too convenient to have to go through the bathroom to get in the room. There were also smashed bugs on the walls which didn't really give it a very clean aspect.

In general everything was clean (there were 2 bathrooms and they were cleaned everyday, kitchen and fridge were clean too, trash taken out everyday) and safe inside the hostel, so I would probably stay here again as the price was quite reasonable -- 27 USD per night (2007) for a single room, shared bathroom -- and it was only a place to sleep. The zone might not be the best (there were some bars and night clubs around open till very late with drunk people standing outside sometimes) but just as long as you're wise and don't wander about at 3 AM you will be safe.

Unique Quality: The place had a good sized kitchen with all the necessary items, free coffee & tea, and the free internet access which was a nice bonus.

Directions: From Wenceslas Sq: facing the National Museum turn right on the 2nd street (top to bottom) and walk till you cross another street, #12 is the 3-4th building on your left side; their sign isn't very visible, they're on the 3rd floor of the building.
