This repurposed trade union and former bank building has been transformed into a welcoming, fun and vibrant hostel in the new town area of Prague.
The mushroom lights in a small green space outside and hanging people art make the entrance to this hostel. Conveniently close to trams that take you to the train station, old town Prague and connect you to the must see sites, makes this hostel conveniently located. While not located in the heart of the bars, but a 10 minute walk away makes it quiet place to rest at night and with security at the front with 24 hour reception, means your stay is secure.
Recycling of waste in the common areas is clear. The energy used is carbon neutral (offset), they are one of the first accommodations in Europe to adopt grey water (recycled water) for the bathroom facilities. The bathrooms were clean, modern and the rooms large and comfortable. The rooms were temperature controlled using the blinds and air conditioner to reduce energy consumption. Their website shows their CO2 emissions reduction. BYO towel, which also reduces how much they have to wash!
The staff are friendly and helpful. Their breakfast was an abundant buffet with plenty of choice and small portions refilled to avoid food waste. Good vegetarian options, homemade spreads, granola and a variety of nuts and fruits to make sure you have a good start to the day. The hot food buffet also had vegetarian options. Everything was in bowls with spoons, with the only single use plastic being a butter alternative. The butter was served in chunks on ice to stay cool, great idea! So great to see how progressive Prague can be in sustainability. The breakfast for Travel Bunny was an additional 229 Czech Kronas. Well worth it. The Burghul salad was very tasty as were the croissants.
The restaurant onsite have activities each night, keeping it social and easy to meet other travellers. The kitchen, laundry and common space was separated around the corner from the main building access. It was small but functional. Of course, there was WiFi, which was reliable.
Comfortable, affordable, sustainable and convenient accommodation in Prague. Definitely recommended.
