We booked quite a while in advance however when we arrived the room we booked and paid for in advance was unavailable as they were full. We were only told this after thinking we had been given the wrong room by mistake.
The place is quite noisy as I got woken up every night in the early hours. Whatever was above us sounded like it would come through the ceiling.
We were impressed with the breakfst that was included however the collection of dead bugs squashed into the table cloth put us off as well as some mouldy meat on the second day.
The staff were a mixture of helpful and just plain uninterested and uncaring.
Now for the good points, its close to everything while being a nice distance away way too. Right between two tram stops.
The view from our room over the river was beautiful and being woken up in the morning by the duks swimming past really made us smile.
Its not the best place we have ever stayed however it is also not all bad, we were dissapointed that our booking clearly ment nothing and nothing wad done to try and rectify it. We wouldnt stay again.

... go to the shop. That's when I knew just how serious this hostel is about drinking. After I got hydrated I headed off out with a couple of girls. We managed to go for a little walk and a spot of lunch before the 14.00 free tour started. The free tour was run by a Scottish man who had lived in Prague for 5 years. He seemed to know his stuff. He told us about all the scams that we might come across whilst we are in Czech Republic. He then took us around the old town explaining all ...
... to practically assault someone to get the check at dinner.
It was a nice night tonight- much more beautiful weather than any of us anticipated. We sort of strolled back through the square and hit the Metro station back in Wenceslas to get in at an early 9:15 pm! We have to pack up tonight because tomorrow we are going on a castle tour to Karlsteijn and Konopiste and will be gone all day, but have to switch hotels when we get back. Still in Prague but over to the Hilton.
... turned out to be the best decision of the day as it rained heavier and constantly. By the end of the tour we were soaked through and cold! During the tour we learnt quite a lot about the history of Prague and the wars, and we saw the university, including the area that used to be used for beheadings. You could still see the marks on the wall where the knife would be sharpened! Legend has it if you come to this corner at night you can still hear the cries of the beheaded. This part ...
... exhibit of Jewish Customs and traditions and items dating back to the 16th century.
The Klausen Synagogue was next and also dates back to the Golden Age of the Renaissance Ghetto. It was a very small building but had a large collection of items from the 17th and 18th century from the Jews of Prague.
The Pinkas Synaguoge is the second oldest and the interior has been tunred into a memorial to the 80,000 Jewish victims of the Nazi genocide ...
