Staying at the Pension 15 was the biggest mistake in my 28 years on planet Earth. I can put this very plain and simple. If you value sleep and any sleep at all, find another place.
Pension 15 is in Zizkov neighborhood of Prague, a “rough and ready” working class area. We stayed at Pension 15 for 5 nights and for the first 3, the pension seemed fine even if the area was a little seedy. That sure changed. We returned on our 4th day of sightseeing and fell asleep sound. At 4am in the morning, we awake to some of the loudest music I’ve ever heard played from a radio or stereo, drunk male German teenagers screaming and singing at the top of their lungs, doors slamming every 30 seconds, and at least one having sex. This went on for close to two hours until they either passed out or went out to breakfast.
We hoped this was only for one night, and upon returning from our 5th day of sightseeing, we went back to our room to find the same German teenagers showering and getting ready for the night. They had actually packed 6 beds per double room, and had almost every room on our entire floor with the exception of our room. The same loud music was on, they were singing again and we were very agitated. We attempted to reason with the jerk at the front desk, who was your typical Eastern European slimeball. His response to our request to ask them to be more quiet and respectful: “no, there is nothing I can do, it is our business and we can do what we want.” Needless to say, the madness happened again on our last night.
I had never experienced anything quite like this, even in all my stays at hostels. Even certain hostels bill themselves as more “partying hostels”; this hit us totally by surprise. Thus, quite easy to say that no matter how hard it might be to find another place in Prague, DO NOT STAY AT PENSION 15!
