My friend and I booked to stay here for 3 nights in August. On arrival we were greeted with a dark and smelly reception that had music blaring, people smoking and dogs running about. First impressions not great. We checked in and were given the keys and dumped with bedsheets. We trailed up the stairs to our "apartment" where we... More

We booked into a double room but our booking was messed up and we ended up in a six bed dorm. The people were nice about this and offered us an alternative but we didn't want to stay. Rooms are a mess, the place isn't clean and the sheets definitely feel dirty. It is very cheap so if you're staying... More

The place is great, the bar is my favourite part. Camilo an Nina did help me a lot with places to go, and we spent some nice time talking, having fun. The place must be one of the first hostel in Czech Republic, and it is in Zizkov, the best part of Prague.

I had a lovely time staying here! The hostel was priceworthy and cosy, the atmosphere great and the staff friendly and helpful, especially Nina whose helpfuless and hospitality contributed to making my trip a great one. This is the perfect place for those who travel alone as it is easy to meet other travellers in the hostel bar. Though the... More

Loved my stay at the Clown and Bard this summer... stayed longer than I originally planned (which is very common at the C+B)... staff are all really friendly and helpful... Nina was especially lovely... taking trouble to repeatedly help me sort out my re-bookings during a busy period and generally being full of friendly smiles and useful advice... I would... More

The clown and bard has one advantage a lovely garden which was the best place to meet people at night however this closed very early , the Main bar is too hot and stuffy and the music is too loud to really speak and meet people, this makes things difficult for a solo traveller, meeting another 2 solo travellers there...

If you're looking to meet fun people and have a great time in Prague, go to Clown and Bard. Everyone you meet there are similar minded people, traveling to meet fun people and have a good time. My day usually went like this: hang in the garden during the day where you make friends, move to the hostel bar during... More

Nice atmosphere and a good place to meet new people. Great place to go on a budget and would highly recommend. Not too far from the main centre of Prague making access to the hostel very easy. Friendly staff and no complaints!

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
