My sister and I stayed here when our first accommodation fell through. We would not recommend it to anyone. Bedding was stained, there was dirt and hair in the bedding. Staff was unfriendly and not helpful. Our "smoke-free" room stunk of smoke. The lounge and communal area was in the bar and was smoky and loud.

I stayed with a friend in a twin room, so my comments relate to what we had in our room. The good – the staff are really friendly and very helpful – Ask what you want when you want, each of them will help you. Free Wi-Fi, (depending on where you are, and if you can get access), it’s free... More

We stayed at the Clown and Bard four nights. It has a cosy bar and common area which has really friendly and welcoming staff and a good atmosphere for meeting other travellers. However, the bar allows smoking from 1pm and its in a kind of basement so for non-smokers (like ourselves) this was unpleasant and we left the hostel with... More

This is a really cheap hostel, so I didn't expect much. The wifi worked in some places, the beds were comfortable, the blankets were sufficient and the showers were hot. That's all you need when it's such a cheap place. Sure there's several flights of stairs but that isn't too hard. The only thing that annoyed me were the staff... More

I am an American and stayed at The Clown and Bard for a week while in Prague on Vacation. The bar in the hostel was an amazing place to meet people and the staff was extremely friendly! Not only were the rooms cheap, but they offered a great breakfast and the staff was full of suggestions on where to grab... More
