We had a lovely stay in hostel skippy. We only stayed for one night but would happily stay here again for much longer. It would be the perfect place for a little arts or writing/ reading retreat, in a quiet and charming room next to the river. The hosts were very kind and welcoming, clearly enjoying their lives and wishing for everyone that stays with them to do the same. Thanks ever so much for having us, I’m sure you’ll see us again.
I don't know if the reason is that we had booked a room right in front of the river, but I got steak fleas. Maybe they hadn't understood that the mattresses need to be cleaned in the fresh air. Maybe now the conditions are better
Stayed in the double room on the top floor for just one night. Our room was very spacious, overlooking the river, with shared bathroom just next to the room. Bathroom was always clean. Location is pretty good, with about 10 minutes walk to one of the main squares. Patio in the back is so cool! Two minor issues : there is no reception, so no way to ask questions or rent towels if you arrive late. The system with handling the keys over to you if they are not there is good though. Also, the wifi did not absolutely work anywhere throughout the hostel. So just count with it not being there. But that's an easy fix. So bring your own towel, and take good shoes, because those cobblestones are everywhere in Cesky Krumlov old town :) Overall - would recommend.
This place was great!! The hosts are amazing. So welcoming. She helped us out to catch buses before we even arrived. And she came to let us in during the night when we arrived. So many recommendations from her. Really good coffee too! It felt like a home away from home. The beds were comfortable. The room was clean. And the view from the balcony is beautiful! Only complaint was the shower temperature flips between hot and cold. But that's nothing that should deter anyone away otherwise you will miss out. Such a good place!
The directions from the bus station were perfect. Just over 10 minute walk to get here. Upon arrival Skippy gave me a map and showed me where everything was, giving tips on views, restaurants, etc. The room was big and cozy. The shared bathroom was kept clean. Free cup of coffee or tea in the morning which is lovely to enjoy on the patio overlooking the river. The location is great, just a few minutes walk to the main square. Wifi was strong. It was an excellent stay!
