This place was very close to the train station- about a 15 minute walk, so I'd recommend leaving the train station, best you Google it, but it definitely is manageable to walk! Prague in general is VERY hilly, very steep, so I would recommend storing all big luggage at the train station. When we entered the hostel, it took us... More

My 3rd visit to the clown and bard and Im staying for good. Everything you need. great adventures begin, continue and regenerate here. Friends are made for life. Hangovers become a bonding experience. Be yourself and enjoy yourself here, I always do. I've stayed in a lot of hostels, this is my most favourite.

This is the fifth time I've been to the Clown and Bard in ten years. Every time I plan to stay for two or three nights and end up staying for over a week. It is quite simply the best party hostel in Europe - ever since I was 18 i've compared hostels around the world to this one, and... More

I would confidently say that the Clown and Bard is the most welcoming, well located and intriguing hostel I’ve been to. For just under £8 per night you get a clean bed in a well-maintained 6 bed dorm. There are a few elements of the decor which need touching up, but this is understandable considering the price. There a quite... More

The main issue about this hostel is its LOCATION. It is up a huge hill miles away from the main city that required a lot of effort every day/night to commute to and from. Forgotten your wallet? Too bad. The hostels all the way back up there, bro. That issue aside... Our room was cozy, beds were comfortable. Sheets are... More

After all the positive reviews, I expected a bit more from this hostel. When we arrived the wifi was down, and it remained down for the entire 3 days we were there. The rooms were clean enough with lockers in them. You could hear everything though. People were running around at 5 am screaming and the hallways smelled of weed.

This was hands down one of the best hostel experiences I have ever had. The exuberant staff ensured that I had a great time in Prague, making it feel like home before I had even checked in yet. The hostel has a great bar, providing an ideal area to meet fellow travellers and some locals too. Its in a central... More

This is a great hostel for meeting people, whether you're alone, in a couple or in a group. The overall relaxed and friendly atmosphere is what makes this place so great. The facilities are fine, it's clean, and the staff are really helpful and nice. It's a bit of a trek to the centre/public transport, but that just means seeing... More

Would be definitely the kind of hostel i'd like to go if travelling alone or with friends (not kind of a couple place:P). The bar at the reception is always full of people staying there and it's easy to make friends if you want to find some company - or if you wanna stay inside and drink one day! Their... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hostel has been on the map since 1995 and still just as young in spirit and focused on our guests’ satisfaction as the day we started. With an international staff motivated by building new friendships and promoting a lively atmosphere, it is easy to consider this place a home away from home.We are located in Žižkov, which is just three tram stops from Václavské Námestí (the heart of Prague’s center). Žižkov is known for being the most socially diverse area of the city, making a short visit quite comfortable and in some cases worth extending. For those travelers on a budget yet still wanting to experience the culture of the local people, this spot is a gem. Žižkov has the highest number of bars in the city and there are a variety of beer gardens, cafes and restaurants with both local and other ethnic cuisines to enjoy. ... more   less
