The Hostelz.com Review

Hostel Prague Tyn, this quaint boutique hostel, ticks all the boxes when it comes to the discerning traveler. Tucked away in a small courtyard, this hostel will supersede all of your expectations whilst remaining humble enough to feel like home.

The Location

The hostel is just around the corner from the beautiful old town square and just a short walk from Charles Bridge. The castle is the farthest attraction and allowing yourself time to lazily soak up the beautiful architecture of the old town and it will still only take you twenty-five minutes to walk there. If you see Petra at the front desk, she will happily point you in the direction of all the great (and cheap) traditional places to eat and drink, all of which are in the surrounding area. Just around the corner on weekdays you can find a marketplace, with everything from local food and beer to hand-carved wooden furniture and everything in between.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms here are very modern and well maintained. Adorned with funky designs, the old building has a defined youthful feel to it. Each floor is divided into two separate section, which in turn is divided into separate rooms, with each section containing a few bathrooms. These bathrooms are gender specific and contain one shower, one toilet, and one hand basin, apart from one bathroom on the second floor that has two showers. So, if you are a couple (or you are super close with your buddy), you can shower in the same room. The hostel has a dedicated team of cleaners who keep the place spotless day and night.

Common Spaces

The reception is open twenty-four hours a day, and the friendly staff are very helpful and informative. Once you have collected your ready-prepared sandwich (as part of the free breakfast), you head downstairs to the kitchen where you will find cereals, juices, teas, and coffees also included in the free breakfast. As well as an additional bathroom downstairs, you will also find a computer room for your use and a loungy common area. Although underground, it is well lit and welcoming with comfy couches and bean bags. There is also a small book exchange here. Outside is a sunny courtyard. It is shared with a cafe next door and opposite is a gym, which you can use at a discounted rate for staying at the hostel.

Summary

Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, possibly the world. To experience all it has to offer you need a central-based hostel with knowledgeable staff. This hostel offers all of that and more. From the moment you enter this hostel, you know that you will be well looked after during your stay.

Great Clean and Quiet Hostel!
This hostel is a gem! Located very close to the City Square, we only stayed for one night, but would have enjoyed staying longer. We stayed in a six-bed room and the hostel was so quiet I was sure we were the only room. The floors are separated into two sections with three rooms in each section -- each section has one women/men's bath and shower. The beds are very comfortable, a great experience! The reception are very friendly and helpful, and offered to assist in finding locations on a map. Also, towels are free, and large! The women's shower room was heated.
Pleased!

  I travelled to Prague by myself in March, and stayed in Tyn for five nights. I have no complaints. The hostel is in a safe, central location. Beds were good, and the room includes a very large locker. There is no breakfast or common room, but I met people in my room and on other floors easily. Additionally, there are plenty of inexpensive restaurants and internet cafes nearby. The Indian restaurant next door is also good.

  The location is fantastic -- I felt safe coming home late at night. The lack of common room means that you are very limited in meeting people. The Indian restaurant next door is cheap and good. A great place if you are traveling with friends.

  I stayed at Hostel Tyn in July and have nothing bad to say about the place. The rooms were peaceful and were complete with lockers. One of the best sleeps I had throughout Europe was at this hostel. The showers are hot and roomy compared to many others, and the place is safe and the location is perfect. I'd stay here again if I were in Prague.

  We showed up to Prague two days earlier than we had expected, and were bombarded at the train station by people wanting to let their apartments or hostels to us. We ended up going with Hostel Tyn because we actually booked it through the money exchange place, and the price seemed reasonable for the location. There were three of us, and we really ended up enjoying the hostel. It was quiet, and nicely located to the Astronomical Clock, and near a Metro stop. There isn't any breakfast, but there is a nice little restaurant right below the hostel. The staff are somewhat helpful, except for the guy who sits behind the desk at night. His English is limited, and he doesn't seem to handle problems too well. One of my party did end up getting her purse stolen out from our room, so make sure that you lock up your room! But we didn't have a problem with the toilet lines or the queue for the shower, and we really enjoyed the microbrew taste testing at Marquis de Sade, right around the corner. I would stay here again.

  Immaculate hostel facilities with zero hostel atmosphere. The rooms are clean and safe. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The location is also amazing. But there is no common room, no breakfast, Internet, etc., that you find in a typical hostel. I probably won't stay here again, but you could definitely do worse than this place.

  The location is the definite reason to sleep here. It's located behind the Tynska church on the main square of Prague, which makes site-seeing easy and metro and bus tickets unnecessary. The rooms are clean and the beds are good, but the showers and toilets are not that clean, with lots of little annoyances like broken windows and such, and there are not enough showers in the hostel, so you can except long waiting times. The staff is ok. The main guy who runs the hostel speaks average english and is friendly, but the guy who sits at the desk at night is a bit moody and doesn't speak anything else but Czech. There's not a common room, so don't except to meet many other travellers here. Book the hostel TYN when you want a central location for an average price, not if you want to party and meet other backpackers. Nevertheless, we had a good time here.
