“Nice appearance and friendly!”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

This hostel has a really excellent vibe and cool decor on the inside, making it pretty appealing to young people and friends going travelling. the rooms were spacious and comfy with well built lockers that were easy to use and easy to lock which isn't always the case. Showers are also spacious, warm and clean. I never had to queue to shower either which is always great! Very helpful staff with lots of advice as to where to eat and what to see! The kitchen was small but useful, and we were able to store food in the fridge, which is also helpful! Breakfast was tasty and plentiful! Would definitely go again - although it is a little way out of town it is worth it for the good value for money and the tram system is easy to use to get to the centre!

Room Tip: Go to eat at the Zalezitost restaurant, round the corner! Amazing dishes and amazingly cheap prices...

Room and shower fine, service friendly but place felt very dark, dingy and a little dirty. We paid next to nothing for the hostel so in terms of value it was good. There was a lot of choice for breakfast and the internet was unlimited - the downside of this is that you have to inhale the clouds of smoke downstairs whilst you use it. Location could be better and is a little far out of the city. Will look elsewhere next time.

Personally, I found this hostel to be very good. It had a funky design, the common areas were a good size, along with the room we had-a double with a shared bathroom. Breakfast was ok, especially given it was included in the room price. There is no fruit offered at breakfast. Wifi worked well downstairs but not really in our room on the first floor. Staff were very friendly and helpful with the questions we had. Hostel is located on several main bus lines and the tram line is up the road a little bit. Both take you into the centre of Prague-old town square etc. The one negative to our time here was that my partner got eaten alive by mosquitoes or something similar during the night. Even when we had the lights on we couldn't see them anywhere, so don't know whether they were in the sheets or carpet or what. Funnily enough I was hardly touched.....weird! Made it slightly uncomfortable for my partner.

Really good little Hostel. Very reasonably prices. It's located in
Žižkov area of Prague, which does mean that it's a good half hour walk into the centre of Prague. It does mean, though, that the surrounding area is quite cheap.

We went in mid-May and, to be honest, it was disappointingly quiet. However, from other reviews it seems that may have had more to do with the time we visited.

Very helpful staff. Very cheap beer, served 24 hours a day. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We stayed in a twin room with shared bath. Room was very basic and small. The bathroom and toilet is common for all rooms. Beer as welcome drink is free. And breakfast is also free. The staff is extremely friendly. We had to checkout early next morning, so they kept breakfast in common room by 7AM. The reception is open 24 hours.

My friends and I stayed at the Marabou hostel during our visit to Prague last month and overall it's a good little place. The room was nice and clean and there was a bathroom and shower room located directly outside, which was good, but only one shower for the dorm! so bit of a rush in the morning. The communal area was welcoming and relaxing with a downstairs area for using the internet, relaxing or smoking. While the hostel is located a little out of the way (it's quite a walk into town), there are buses directly outside that you can catch an it's a nice walk into the main town f you choose to walk, so not a problem. We stayed in a large mixed dorrm and also had a good night's sleep with no disturbances.
The staff working at hostel were very friendly and helpful. We needed help finding out train times and sorting out transport from the hostel back home and the staff were absolutely great and it's a 24 hour reception too.
We'd definitely stay at this hostel again next time we visit Prague! :)
