Everything started well when we arrived to the hostel, the girl in the reception was nice and helpful, the rooms seems to be comfortable and clean. But when we entered the room, we realized that it is really cold, so we asked the receptionist to turn on the central heating. After one or two hours we didn't noticed any change,...

The hostel was signposted from the outside, and we were able to get in after the reception letting us in. The room was a pretty old decor, even for a hostel. Wooden bunk beds, no lockers, not too great covers, and the mattress was relatively firm. The kitchen also housed the bathroom and shower area. There was only one hob...

the guys running it did not appear very organised/professional/friendly. The room and beds were ok and clean enough. The kitchen was not not well equipped. The shower did not have warm water in the evening.

We only went to this hostel because it was the only option, the reviews weren't encouraging...Unfortunately it is a rather dirty place which smells quite bad, we are lucky that we were only there for one night so it went ok. Given the condition of the hostel I think that it is overpriced, about 36 Euros for a triple room,...

Stayed here for a night with eight friends. It's not at all a social hostel, just functions as dorm rooms. There is a social area, but it wasn't busy when we were there. Good location, close to the centre square and the station, and cheap to boot. Recommend.

Even though I made a reservation (3 rooms for 2 nights) via email when we got there we found out that they had no idea about us. Apparently a guy who emailed with me didn't tell the other staff who were there over weekend. In a few minutes everything was solved, they found different rooms for us, no problem at...

Stayed here for 3 night when in Plzen. The hostel is in a great location, very close to the centre. The staff were super chilled out and friendly and the room was spacious and clean. Good strong Wi-Fi connection in the rooms. The bathroom and kitchen facilities weren’t great but for 450czk a night you can't expect too much. Overall...

I stayed 5 nights in Hostel River last month when I needed to attend a conference in Pilsen. The room was spacious and clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. It has a terrace where you can chill out in summer. The only minus point is the bathroom: there is only a small shower per floor, ie. in my case,...
