I had a horrible experience here. I left my shoes here and I was not able to retrieve them because the staff said they don't know. Then there is actually no internet connection, so beware! Then they would add more beds inside when the room was only made for 10, they added four more beds and it was hard to... More

Ok standard hostel but too loud and just one lamp in the doorms. Our main complaint is that we booked on hotels.com but had to paid twice the price in the reception. Staff told me it was not their fault and that i should've understood when i booked that price was too low. Sure it was cheap, but so i... More

I had a pleasant stay at Hostel Maribou. There were some great pluses, and a few minuses but overall the hostel was fine. The hostel is in a great location, really easy to get to old Prague by tram and and bus, and is around a 30 minute walk if you're feeling up to the exercise. Getting to the hostel... More

This hostel was okay. Good location and easy to get to. No AC which can be difficult during nights. The staff was very helpful and knowledgable about local information which was great. Also very cheap beer!!!! Beds were okay...

Upon arrival after midnight, we were greeted by a friendly staff. The interior were pretty unique and funky. Not the cleanest place you would come across but what to complain for the amazing price? The 16 bed sharing room is really huge. Don't go for this type if you are a light sleeper. You will get disturbed like all the... More

Thank god this was just the last night of our trip. The hostel looks really nice on the website and on the photos... In reality it is not. The idea itself is really nice but there needs to be done more than a lot to make it happen. The lounge room in the basement is terrible. It is so humid... More

We stayted there for 4 nights mainly becuse the price was unbeatable! I regret staying in a bedroom with 16 people though becuase one guy literally snored alll night every night so i... More

During our Interrail tour, we booked a double room in this hostel. On arrival, we got upgraded to an ensuite room. Didn't have a free beer though. The room was clean, even though the toilet paper in the bathroom had some traces of dubtful colour. Apart from that, the room is very quiet and big. The hostel has a pub,... More

Me and a friend stayed for four nights at hostel marabou and had very few complaints. Not a place for families (bunk beds are the order of the day) but very friendly and chilled. All the rooms were clean, there were plenty of bathrooms/showers and the reception staff were very helpful (I think the guy was called Erwin?). Also, the... More

This hostel is not really in the centre, it took about 20-25 minutes to walk to the centre. There is a bus stop right outside the hostel though. It had a really nice atmosphere, was clean and the staff were friendly. It was pretty expensive for what it was too. This is a lively hostel and full of party people,... More
