My favorite hostel in the world. My favorite city in general but this hostel made the experience. Went with 4 friends from the US and met a bunch or random travelers from around the world who were all down to have a good time. Met this Dutch band while we were there who put on a great live performance. Stayed... More

I got in around 10pm... Initial thoughts were not good because it is a bar, there was people smoking & drinking, you pay in Czech Kuranas which works out a higher price than the euro price on booking.com, so should have paid in there currency. Apart from that the room was great, shower bathroom was good, great place to meet... More

I was traveling with a friend, we had 2 beds in a 6 beds dorm. The room, kitchen, bathroom, toilets were very clean, nothing to say about it. It was perfect for the price. Although there is loud music played all day and all night long in the lobby and in the bar, thanks to the big doors, you won't... More

The hostel is decently situated, with the city centre easily accessible by tram (walking distance in my opinion). Had a great time at the hostels bar, meeting new people and having friendly chats with the tenders themselves, who were always helpful. Of which Daniel was most memorable - great guy. Would definitely recommend for any other travellers in the area.

Clown and Bard was a fairly central hostel, about 20 minutes walk to the main square in Prague, up a very steep hill. The rooms were basic and fairly clean, however it was a bit dated. The bar was good and inexpensive, with lots of interrailers like us! The hostel is set up in small apartments, with three small dorms... More

Great position; Not in the "center-center" but still 15-20 min walking distance from the old town (what allows you to explore the city on the way to center). Quarter is very nice, with very nice small restaurants to have brunch before you start the journey around Prague. Staff is very very friendly, rooms are clean and spacious (at least our... More

We stayed for four nights. The hostel was pretty clean, except for the cigarette smell downstairs and on the stairs. But this was not the case in the bedroom. The room seemed to have been painted quite recently. Bathroom was clean as well. The room had double windows, which would've blocked the noise from the street, if there were any.... More

I have stayed in many hostels and this is one of my favourites! It is perfect for the solo traveller because of the great atmosphere.The 24/7 hostel bar that serves very affordable beer offers a chance to interact with fellow travellers in a relaxed setting. The hostel is situated in a charming part of Prague close to parks, pubs and... 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
