Stayed here as part of a travel group a couple of weeks ago and we were really made to feel welcome! Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable - there are lovely hand-drawn maps available with useful recommendations for the whole town.
We had the en-suite room upstairs - it was clean, homely and quirky, as was the whole hostel. Would definitely stay here again!

We had the Baker's Room on the right at the bottom of the stairs. It was a spacious room, but the bathroom was pretty small. The water pressure in the shower wasn't great, but the water was hot. This room had no outlet near a mirror, so my sister had to flat iron her hair blind. It's always helpful to have an extra mirror outside the bathroom for getting ready, which this room didn't have. The staff were great. My sister had a canker sore starting and needed some bleach so she could do a bleach rinse (really shortens the life of a canker sore) and the owner was able to track some down for her. Her canker sore was gone in 4 days.

Thanks for your honest and positive review. Interesting comment about the water pressure in the shower. Not really sure what happened there because it's strong now. Perhaps you didn't lift up the shower knob to maximum? Thanks for your comment about the mirror. I'm on it! Enjoy your travels!

This was a lovely place to stay in beautiful Cesky Krumlov. I was in one of the top rooms which had a lovely view but being quite tall I struggled a bit with the height of the room in some places. Had to go downstairs to shower which didn't bother me but might be off-putting for some people. These small things didn't matter though as I enjoyed my time here so much. The owners were great and full of recommendations of where to see, eat, etc in the town. I also must give a special shout out to Romandi and Iolanthea who had only been working there a couple of days. They helped me piece together an adaptor chain to charge my phone as Czech sockets don't seem to fit the one I use elsewhere in Europe. Even better than that they made delicious breakfast pancakes for the guests, they were so good I ate 5!

Thanks so much for your honest review! Great staff make great (and well-fed!) guests :) Just a quick response about showering elsewhere...Your room is fantastic as far as views go, but it's the only private room without an ensuite shower/toilet. If it is an issue for anyone, they should book a room with ensuite. Happy trails, and I hope you return again soon! Cheers,

Wonderful homely hostel. Stayed for 2 nights in a private room (but wish it had been longer!). Clean, friendly staff, good location and such a beautiful place. Our room had perfect views of the river below. Could easily stay here again and would recommend to other travellers.

The hostel is just 10 min by foot of the bus station and less than 10 of the main city center, it's easy to find and very cozy, it is decorated with lot of wood, there is a common room and a kitchen with tables, they provide small lockers, bring your own padlock to use the lockers. They also provide you a key to access the hostel after 6 PM, that's the time when the staff leave. I would stay again for sure if I had to come to Cesky Krumlov again
