My First Post (from the owner)

I will try not to go all Ed Grimley on you (hello Martin Short) and get overly excited (I must say) about this, the first blog I’ve ever done posted, but I am, shall we say, happy to communicate with whomesoever reads such things.  Our webiste is just about done, and we have been open for three months, so it is time to write some history, after which I can blather on about the present.  I and my Czech partner decided about a year ago to find a place to convert to a state-of-the-art hostel, and after months of looking, we settled on this ideal location and ideal building on Spalena, smack in the center of everything anyone would want to see and do in Prague.  It looked less than ideal to begin with … it’s facade was hideous and as a large office building on six floors plus attic, in need of a complete rebuild … but we thought we could see a diamond in the rough.  It was big enough to give us a ton of beds, while affording a very generous amount of space to dedicate to common areas, and it had this very cool terrace with specatacular views off a fifth floor we decided would remain without any beds at all … and after all that we still had a ground floor on one of Prague’s busiest streets – a big space I will be blogging about over the next few months.  So lets begin with
