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

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

We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel! It was clean, provided breakfast and had a games room. The facilities provided were excellent, so we could watch our budget and just eat in, and there are plenty of convenience stores nearby! It's a bit of a walk from all the tourist attractions, but once we found some shortcuts, it was... More

After one night stay, we found a condom next to our bed with hair and dust everywhere. The place smells of dust, you can't play pool properly as the table is too close to two walls. After confronting the staff about the condom and hair, they proceeded to say we placed the condom there. We are two straight girls, so... More
