if you are looking for a place packed with atmosphere, comfortable and clean facilities as well as friendly staff and great location, look no further. we stayed in a total of 5 hostels in a 30 day trip and this was by far the best. I had one of the best nights of my life in Prague and the Clown... More

My review is going to be bias but bear with me. First off, this is not a fancy hotel or a trendy hostel for the well off travelers so if you have money to burn and look elsewhere! I have stayed at the Clown and Bard some 11 years ago when I was 18 and revisited it again last year.... More

First off, I have to say the staff are really friendly and very helpful- they will help you with almost anything you need. Location is pretty great too, there are a bunch of interesting restaurants around and the neighborhood's architecture is wonderful. This is a great place to meet other fellow travelers in chill atmosphere- there is a cosy bar... More

I had a short but great stay in this inexpensive hostel in one of the rooms equipped with individual bathroom and kitchenette. They also have dorms, it's a big place. Linens and towels were included. The reception is always open. Only about a 10-15 minute walk from the railway and bus station it is near public transport. Beware the building... More

Staying at this hostel was a wonderful experience . The staff is very friendly and helpful . You feel like you are in your second home. If you want to experience something you will never forget and you will therefore return , then definitely recommend this hostel !

I will start this review by saying that I am by no means a picky customer. I have stayed in a number of hotels and hostels in a number of countries and I can absolutely assure you some of them were not great. But never have I felt the need to actually warn off fellow travellers. The Clown and Bard... More

So let's begin, I walked into an underground, smoke filled, dark, dirty, awful reception. The staff look at you as if you're not normal. Then my room, was behind a dirty, disgusting kitchen that I cannot even put words in to describe. Right next to the kitchen that people are in all day. Then the door couldn't even open properly...

If you like clean rooms, usable bathrooms, smoke free receptions, tolerable hostel staff and the ability to safely close your eyes at night...then don't bother booking this hostel. If you're looking for: - The warmth of mother Russia and the sweet tendrils of communism, - A bathroom shared between 18 people and dead insects that are never cleaned during your... More

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.
