Ritchie's Hostel Prague Reviews
Good location but noisy at night Apr 28, 2011
Ah yes, Ritchies Hostel, i arrived here after changing hostels and met some pretty girls from Venice while checking-in, too bad they were leaving...
The girl working at the counter was alert and friendly. It was late afternoon/early evening and little did i know she was just starting the graveyard shift. Sometimes hostel employees work long hours and put up with a lot of crap... this one was still managing the front desk the next morning and clearly exhausted, but still always helpful and even cracked a smile.
My room was fairly clean but the other travelers were messy and there were a lot of clothes draped around. The water closets were decent, not perfectly spotless but not filthy either.
This hostels location is a blessing and a curse. The blessing is it's so close to everything being on one of the busiest streets just down from the Charles Bridge but the curse is that it's noisy, and the reverberating echoes of drunken Brits singing in the early hours goes right through the open windows.
Closing the windows helps for the noise but the morning breath of sleeping backpackers requires an early morning window opener.
