Fodor's Review

The rooms in this former convent, now operated by the Christian charity Unitas, once served as interrogation cells for the communist secret police, and the late Václav Havel was once even a "guest." Though it used to be operated by the Christian charity Unitas, it has gone upscale and is no longer the great value it once was. That said, the central location is excellent and the cozy rooms are airy, light, and modern. Fortunately, the lobby and rooms betray nothing of

this gloomy past and are airy, light and modern.

Location Over Looks

This place feels a little bit like your old dorm room, but cleaner. Just a bed, a dresser and a couple of chairs. Teeny, tiny towels - shared bath. (Women's shower separate from men's). Stayed 4 nights and never saw another soul in the shower room, so never had to wait. Staff all speaks english and are very helpful and friendly. As a middle aged female who travels alone, I found this place strangely comforting. It's on a dark street just a couple

blocks from the town square, but the police station is directly across so you always feel safe. Great location within walking distance of all major sites. The 24 hour reception requires you to leave your key when going out, so you never have that "oh no I lost my key" feeling. They require a security code to enter at night, and have 24 hour cameras monitoring the hallways. The breakfast is horrible - unless you like bologna and Tang. My favorite thing - they have a "No Drinking In Your Room" policy but sell beer in the vending machine. Paid about $50 per night for a single room on the Pension side.

Clean, Comfortable Hostel in the Centre of Prague

This Pension is an excellent choice for anyone on a budget. The staff all speak a variety of languages - English, French, Italian etc. Our (double) room was very clean and big enough as not to be claustrphobic. The shared bathroom was OK too, though the shower was a bit feeble. Yup, breakfast isn't stunning but it's adequate and Prague is cheap enough that it doesn't matter too much. Highly recommended.

A Great Budget Option

It's true this is really a hostel, but a very good hostel. We had a room on the main floor (not the former prison cells) and were quite happy with it. I am basing my ratings on the price relative to other lodgings in the area. The location is convenient to all the sights. Very quiet, comfortable and EXCEPTIONALLY clean rooms and shared bathrooms (separate men's and women's). Never had to queue for the bathrooms either. The "breakfast" of only

bread, jam and coffee is a miss though.
