About Český Krumlov
Cesky Krumlov is a city that no traveler to the Czech Republic should miss. It's an inexpensive bus ride from Prague and the hostels in Cesky Krumlov are cheap as well.
It's a picturesque town nestled inside a little loop on the Vltava River. The centerpiece of the town is a charming castle, which is surrounded by an amazingly well preserved medieval village, with most buildings dating back hundreds of years. Even the hostels in Cesky Krumlov are mostly located in restored stone buildings in the historic city center. It's recognized as a
UNESCO World Heritage
Cesky Krumlov is a great place to relax and unwind for a couple days. You can spend a day tubing on the Vltava River, then have a picnic lunch on the river bank. In the evening you can meet up with some new friends from your hostel and head out for a local beer or wine at a historic old pub and swap travel stories until late in the night.

"Hostel Postel is located on an alleyway just off one of the main bridges in the Old Town Square. When you walk through the gate at Hostel Postel you are greeted with a courtyard that makes you feel immediately at home. The reception desk isn't manned at all hours so be sure to let them know when you are going to arrive and leave (if you leave your bags with them at check-out). The Location It's a short, five-minute walk across the...
"Cesky Kromlov is a fantastic place, and Hostel Merlin is a fantastic hostel. The only thing I could complain about would be that it is a little cramped, but in this place I'd call it cosy. The rooms are very well kept and the bathrooms are modern and clean. The beds are reasonable -- and they're separate beds rather than bunks, which is a good bonus. The receptionist/manager was very friendly and helpful and spoke very good English. A...
Travellers Hostel Cesky Krumlov
"A fun hostel converted from an old mansion right in the center of town. It's rare to find a fun hostel that's also a really nice place to stay, but this one is both. It has spacious rooms with big lockers, a kitchen, balcony, satellite TV, game room with pooltable, a big common area with a bar, and decent bathrooms. At night the common area is full of people and occassionally there is live music or other events." … "A very good...
"A truly great hostel. A small house on the outskirts of the old town (but only a 5 minute walk of the center of town), and about 10 minutes from the bus station. It's not a party house, as there are only about 40 beds in two big sleeping rooms. It's the kind of place where you'll probably meet just about everyone staying in the hostel. The interior is beautifully painted and features a large kitchen and a common room with comfy couches....
"Hostel 99 is a great hostel situated right in the old walls of the medieval city of Cesky Krumlov. The building is in very good condition, and is colorful, warm, and friendly. The staff is also friendly and kind. The room we stayed in was not in the main building, but is also in the old walls, and very nice, although the bathroom there is less than stellar -- institutional at best. The common areas are really great, although a little bit...
"The Hostel Havana has a great position on the Vlatva River with a garden area out the front but unfortunately the building is lacking in the maintenance one would expect. The hostel is about two kilometers from the bus station down the hill and to the left before the bridge, but it is easier to get a taxi from the bus station or the gas station nearby. From the train station it is a twenty-five- to thirty-minute walk downhill most of the...
"Hostel Skippy occupies a charming, two-hundred-year-old house right on the bank of the Vltava river. The atmosphere here is more home than hostel, with lots of personal attention from Skippy, the Czech-Cubana resident owner who is also a musician, and you'll undoubtedly receive invitations to see her perform locally during your stay. The best feature of the hostel is the roomy riverfront terrace with plenty of seating. Other than that,...

"They offer a double room plus a 10 bed dorm. The place was good and the people friendly, even if they didn't speak english very well. The town is *very* small, so the hostel is close to everything. The rate for the double room bed was 250 which is very cheap." … "I lost my backpack and money. The staff did not care and the manager was very unhelpful. He blamed me. I was later told that this happens every day in the Traveller's Hostel...
"Staying at the Ryba is like staying with your hip auntie. The owner, Jalka, is very friendly and her efforts to communicate and make you feel comfortable override her difficulty with the English language. If you're a dog lover, you'll have fun pampering her aging but sweet dog. We felt perfectly at home here. The location is perfect, right on the shore of the Vltava River and just a five-minute walk to the town square. The restaurants...

"Great price in a great location. - Location was perfect, right in town centre, and the young couple running the hotel have widely traveled and were very helpful.

"I spent four months travelling Europe and this place would be easily the best in terms of quality and price. I'm not exaggerating. We stayed in a double room here and were used to staying in doubles in other hostels and pensions. It has a large room, and has a large, clean, light and new-looking private bath.

Český Krumlov Travel Tips & Suggestions
Anyone with an Interrail pass (not Eurail, which isn't valid in the Czech Republic) and heading here from Prague, or vice versa -- don't bother coming here by bus. The train journey may be less convenient, involving a change at Ceske Budejovice, but it's worth it for the scenery, especially if it's sunny/snowy (and you save the money for the bus fare!).
Cesky Krumlov is an incredibly picturesque place where you simply must go. Great food and the prices are still fairly low. Definitely, definitely go to the restaurant in the Eggenberg brewery. Try the roast duck with dumplings, and the dark beer -- one of the best meals of my life! If you do go, go soon. This place was really turning a corner when I was there in May of 2006, and while it was still extremely charming, cheesy souvenir shops with signs in Japanese characters were starting to pop up on various streets. At times the tour bus crowds can be a bit thick, but they never stay overnight and are gone by late afternoon.

Go here! We stopped here as a city to relax in, and it's perfect to do just that. Go to the castle and see the bears. Eat at the vegetarian restaurant! They sit you right off of the lazy river, and serve excellent food. David, the owner, will take good care of you!
All i can say is that I planned to go for 3 days and stayed for 8 months! Beware of Krumlov!
If you don't enjoy outdoor activities (i.e. hiking, kayaking, mountain biking) don't bother coming! But if you do enjoy these things be prepared to stay longer than you expect. This place is magical!
Cesky Krumlov is amazing. Make sure you go as soon as possible, before it truly becomes overrun by tourists and the prices double.
I travelled for three months and when I arrived in Cesky Krumlov I finally experienced what I was looking for. You can really immerse yourself in a foreign culture there. Cesky Krumlov is a place to be visited for more than just a couple of days... but beware, once you settle in it's really hard to leave. It makes you ponder in a way that few places can inspire you to. I recommend staying in a small hostel... the big ones can get too noisy.
Cesky Krumlov is all good and you could just spent months here! Great place even in November when it was a little quieter than usual. This place has it's own very distinct character and is a real favourite. There's loads to eat and drink here - the medieval places are great, including an amazing veggie restaurant and you're basically spoilt for choice. Make sure you get out of Prague and see Cesky Krumlov - it's something you need to see experience, maybe several times...
While there's not all that much to do here, it's certainly true that everyone stays longer than they had planned. Rafting the Vltava river and visiting a handful of museums are fun, but just hanging out and relaxing are the keys to this place. Try it in winter too.
All I can say is plan on staying longer than you expected when you get to Cesky Krumlov. Everyone does.
