“Hot Reception Girl!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2009

Stayed with 7 in 1 room for a football match in November. Room was quite big, with plenty of locker sapce. Clean enough, and decent to get your head down when you have ahd a few beers. 5 Minutes from Old Town Square, so a good location,. Given a towel on arrival, which was a boonus, and the free breakfast was adequate, but not really my thing. Best part of the whole stay was the HOT reception girl who greeted us when we arrived. Bathrooms did the job as well!

  • Disliked — Nothing for the price!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2008

i've been, with a friend, in this hostel 3 nights in october and i found it really good. The location is great, only 5 minutes walk from the old city square, and it was very clean,warm and confortable. Even bathrooms were very clean, and on my floor there were 4 of them,so it never happened that i found it not free.

The only thing that bothered was the room's door that was a bit squeaky, so everytime someone entered or exited the room i woke up.

overall, a nice place to stay on a budget, also because of the common areas, that included kitchen, free internet room with 4 pcs, public phones and free breakfast

  • Liked — the cleanliness
  • Disliked — the squeaky door! :)

Old Prague Hostel has a great location and the staff was very friendly. The rooms are a little old, with gross looking mattresses. We slept in our sleeping bags (too afraid to get under the covers). Our biggest issue was the first floor smoking room. The first floor is constantly like a thick cloud of smoke and if you went down to teh community room, where the computer is, then you are bound to reek of smoke the rest of the day.
The price is good, if you're looking for somethign cheap with low expectations.

  • Liked — free internet
  • Disliked — old scary mattresses

My stay there was reasonably good compared with the price. However, I booked five nights via hostel.com and the confirmation said I would pay by euros. However, the staff insisted that I need to pay by Kcs (i.e. czech dollars). He said that rate was 26.6 but we get change everywhere, including the airport, the rate was not higher than 23. Be careful, not to be tricked.
The electricity shut the second last night, and all lights in my room glown out. He promised us to fix it the following day, unluckily, he didn't. We were only given a small standing lamp for the twin bed room

The Old Prague Hostel was reasonably priced, centrally located to tourist attractions, very friendly, clean, had free internet and included breakfast. I had my own double so I didn't have to deal with noisy roommates
