The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
Travellers Hostel (aka Travel Hostel) is a great budget-friendly accommodation option right in the heart of the charming town of Český Krumlov.
Travellers Hostel has one of the best locations in the Old Town, just around the corner from the main square and within easy walking distance to everything you would want to see within Český Krumlov. If arriving by train, it can be a bit of a long walk to the Old Town, but the bus station is only around a ten- to fifteen-minute walk away. Many restaurants and bars are located within the Old Town and along the river.
Rooms and Bathrooms
Travellers Hostel offers a wide range of different-sized rooms within this old, historic building. If you are looking for a dorm room you can choose from six-, eight-, and nineteen-bed options. Private rooms are also available for two, three, and four people or you even have the option of a private apartment for up to five people. Dorm rooms are comfortable with only single beds in the six- and eight-bed rooms. This does mean the beds are a bit closer than in a traditional dorm room, so you may wake up staring into the face of your bed neighbours. Lockers are provided and you can borrow a lock from reception. Plenty of power points are also provided next to your bed for charging your devices.
Bathrooms are available on different floors of the hostel, so if one is occupied near your room you can always find another one on another floor. Some bathrooms have individual showers, but others have open showers with multiple shower heads, so you need to lock everyone else out of the bathroom if you want privacy.
The hostel has a kitchen for you to use that is reasonably well equipped; it's also the main common area. If you explore other floors you might find the odd other lounge for relaxing or a balcony for watching the drinkers on the terrace below, but predominantly the pub downstairs would be the place to hang out. The pub downstairs offers traditional food and beers at a reasonable price with even cheaper deals at lunch and it has a great historic cavern feel to it. The main thing to be aware of with this hostel is the limited reception hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., which is very short compared with other hostels. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the hostel and the pub downstairs. Despite the pub downstairs, we found this hostel to have a reasonably quiet but friendly vibe.
Overall, this is a great option when visiting Český Krumlov, if you want to stay right in the heart of the Old Town in a beautiful, historic building.
