The location of the Prague Square Hostel is almost unbeatable but there isn't anything special about the accommodation itself. The breakfast wasn't great and we ended up buying our own food for the mornings. However the location is great just down from the Astronomical Clock. The staff were helpful in recommending places to go and eat/drink. Rooms were fine, the... More

Stayed here for four nights mid-March and had a wonderful time. There were three of us, two in a private and one in a dorm. The private room was a bit pricey but had a vanity sink, closet, two beds, and what appeared to be a table (a long book stand really). Dorm was average although my buddy had no... More

We stayed for four nights at Prague Square hostel and would highly recommend to friends. Awesome location, great staff, good price and good value. Great communal rooms, the kitchen had everything you needed and was very clean and welcoming. Decent breakfast included in the price in the morning which was a nice surprise. Special mention to Manex at reception who... More

The hostel is located right behind old town square and is no more than a five minute walk to other attractions. The rooms, bathrooms and kitchens were cleaner than most hostels I've ever been too. Free breakfast was nothing special but free none the less. Staff were helpful. I would stay here again

The hostel was a lot smaller than the online pictures showed, beds were tightly packed together and rooms were very claustrophobic. Free breakfast wasn't really worth it, I'd rather have spent a couple hundred krones on a decent meal. Shared bathrooms and showers. No lock on shower room door. It was clean though and free towels and hairdryers etc were... More

This hostel is a little hard to find because it's actually above a restaurant but other than that it's in a great location- right around the corner from Old Town Square. Everything you want to see in Prague is a walkable distance from here. I stayed here with a friend and we were met by Emma, the super friendly front-desk... More

Pluses • Great location • Helpful staff Minuses • Charged me a bit more because i did the booking via email. • 5cm-thick uncomfortable sponge matresses. • Only 3 outlets in an 8 bedded room.

Don't waste your money here. Mgr is a liar. I emailed to inquire about space for 3 specific nights, clearly stating i was not comfortable with booking online. I was quoted a price in euros but told the space would but be guaranteed without a deposit. As it was midweek, I took my chances and arrived to find it empty.... More

I was in Prague last year and when asked to go again I had no doubt in telling the rest of our group to book this hostel for the second time. It's location is fantastic, a stones throw away from the square. The rooms are cute and old fashioned, although very clean. The communal toilets and showers are also spotless,... More
