  This hostel is great! The neighborhood that is it located in is quiet and easy to navigate. Down the block there is a pretty garden park where many people walk their dogs in the morning. It feels very safe and local. There is a city tram right across the street which takes people to the city center as well as up to the castle on the hill. There is a small grocery store just down the street where lots of food can be purchased. Back at the hostel guests can use the kitchen on the lower floor level next to the bar. The kitchen is so clean and modern. There is plenty of refrigerator space as well as cooking utensils. The overall feel of the hostel/hotel is very modern and clean. They have options for many private rooms as well as shared and dorm rooms. The dorms are very tidy and organized efficiently. The 34 bed bunker is neatly arranged so each bed faces across from other bunks. The room lockers go under neath each bed and are huge! There is enough room to fit two 40 liter backpacks and then some. Bring a lock and key for locking. The mattresses, pillows and comforters were very comfortable. The bathrooms near the dorms are very clean. The trash baskets were emptied twice a day! The showers are very modern with large shower heads that flow directly above the drain. The hooks are helpful when hanging up towels and clothes. There are not many windows in the bathrooms however if you shower during the daytime you'll have plenty of light. There is so much room and plenty of space for lots of guests. The common space on the main level is again, very tidy and clean. There are pillows, lounge chairs, a large table and lots of outlets. There is some outside seating but most people hangout on the steps just outside the entrance. There is a free tour which is very informative as well as fun! The employees are extremely helpful and laugh with everyone. It is not necessarily a party hostel although the bar downstairs can get pretty wild some nights. There are some events that are hosted in the bar which are very fun! There is a schedule located just next to the front desk. It is a hostel/hotel that fits the needs of the quiet nomads to the party travelers.
Entering the hostel! The basement dorms are cool and only a tiny bit spooky :) The common area Amazing views from the window seat!

Nice hostel
The Czech Inn is a really nice hostel in a convenient location not far from most of the attractions. This place really did feel more like a hotel, but for a hostel price. However it wasn't as social as I would have liked, especially coming as a solo traveler.

A bit noisy, but helpful staff
There's a lot about the Czech Inn that's noisy -- the room doors, the clunkily locking en-suite bathroom doors, even the plumbing. There's also a bar downstairs, but if you're on the higher floors, it's not a real problem. I also didn't feel that one toilet (often monopolized by someone in the shower) was enough for 10 girls. There was an extra toilet in the hallway, but it was sometimes problematic finding available facilities. Security is good -- key cards for the doors, even the elevators and stairs, a locker for each bed, 24-hour reception. The staff was helpful and friendly. They arrange walking tours and such, give maps, and sell metro/bus tickets, which is really handy. The inside of the hostel feels a little institutional, but the building itself and the area are very pretty. There's a bar downstairs and a full (but relatively pricey) breakfast if you choose, plus a small snack cafe downstairs.

Seriously Good Place
First time I've stayed here but the €15 dorm bed deal on the site was too good to resist, seeing as the place has such a stellar reputation. Checked-in very efficiently and the guys behind the desk are always willing to assist in any way. Rooms are good although the shower beside us was locked for some reason. No kitchen either so lacks the classic 'backpacker vibe'. Security is very good as you can't access the lift without a key-card. The free internet is very helpful as is the travel card rental deal which offers great value of unlimited transport for 80Ck per day. Also, although the hostel is a little way out from the centre, there's a regular night-bus from I P Pavlova, so no problems there. The 'Piece-de-Resistance' though has to be the 'all-you-can-eat' breakfast which costs 120/110Kc but is the best I've ever come across in a hostel. For a hostel, the standard here is very high indeed.

More luxurious than a hotel!
We stayed in an apartment at the Czech Inn, and I can honestly say it was more luxurious than a lot of hotels I have stayed in. A massive room, flat screen tv, walk in shower ... it was fantastic. The hostel is located in a lovely area, where probably the best and most appropriately priced restaurants are located. A tram can easily be caught to reach the city centre. The breakfast, although might seem expensive, is well worth it, as it is very convenient and there is plenty on offer. The majority of the staff are very helpful, some however are slightly reluctant and will ignore you unless you address them. All in all a very very good hostel, oh and the pub crawl is well worth it!

Amazing hostel and accommodating staff!
The Czech Inn staff was amazing and accommodating to an error in my part and gave me the lower rate which I was quoted. The Czech Inn is right on tram line 22, which hits most of the major attractions in the city. The Czech Inn has modern facilities, where you have to have a key card to ride the elevator, a caged and locked luggage room, and a cheap bar with a great happy hour special.

Czech Inn Hostel is great whether you're traveling alone or in a group. It is large, very clean and modern, and it offers plenty of opportunities to meet great people. The Location The hostel is located in the new city, in a nice and safe area. It is very close to a tram station, which, in turn, is about three stops away from a metro station. It is not in the middle of the tourist area, but it is easily accessible and from there one can visit all the major touristic spots on foot, weather permitting. One detail worth noting is that the directions posted on the hostel site are a little vague and misleading. From the I.P. Pavlova metro stop, you will either need to take the #4 or #22 tram uphill for three stops, or, to walk there, you will need to first walk uphill on Jugoslavska, follow it until it becomes nam. Miru, take a slight right, and only then take Francouzka, to number 76. Rooms and Bathrooms The dorm rooms are very clean and appear to be newly renovated. We stayed in a large, six-bed dorm that has a sink and mirror, a table, and a chair -- the bunk beds are very comfortable. There is an option to book private rooms. The rooms are accessible by magnetic cards, which also operate the elevator, adding an extra layer of security. Each guest has access to a large locked drawer, located under the bottom bunks. You have to bring your own lock. The bathrooms and showers also look to be newly renovated, as they are very clean and modern-looking. This is a large hostel, and we haven't had any problems finding a free shower or toilet on our floor. The water pressure and temperature are adequate but the shower knob needs to be pushed every minute or so for the water to keep running (like some faucet knobs in public restrooms). This is not really an inconvenience, and it is probably better for the environment. The shower cabins also have a sink and a mirror along with a towel rack and hooks, and enough space to change. Common Spaces The hostel does not have a kitchen or any other place you might want to store food. It does have a bar downstairs that serves an all-you-can-eat-breakfast in the morning (at a moderate price, but not very cheap). Both the bar area and the outside lounge have free Wi-Fi. There are other computers that can be used, at a cost, in the entrance lounge. The bar downstairs has excellent and cheap Czech beer, along with a selection of hot food. With the staff's approval, we have always brought our own food from the outside to go with the beer, and they are even kind enough to provide plates and utensils. There are two large flat screen TVs in the bar, but usually the sound is off. The hostel itself is nonsmoking, but you can bring your drink outside until 10 p.m., if you wish to smoke outside. Despite being a large hostel with several floors, this is a social hostel if you want it to be. We have met many people both at the bar downstairs and in the main sitting/computer area without too much effort. Summary Overall, this is a great hostel to stay in when visiting Prague. It is clean, social, safe, and located in a nice part of town. The lack of kitchen and fridge might be a problem for extended stays, especially on a tight budget, but we couldn't find any major drawbacks during our five-night stay.
