“An extraordinary experience...”
Reviewed August 11, 2009

Stayed there over New Year 08/09 because it was the cheapest place available at that time. It's located on a campus, where students rent out their dorms when on vaca or home for the holidays. The rooms are simple, run-down and moderately clean. The heating works (although you can't regulate the heat) and the communal bathrooms are okay. It's a campus, so don't go there if you mind people screaming, singing or fighting in the hallway. During Xmas season, the mensa is closed, so you'll have to go downtown for breakfast.

The city center and many other sights are within easy reach by means of mass transit (day / night busses). The cable railway is only a couple of hundred meters away and will take you downtown right away every 15 mins until 10pm. After that, you can take one of the many busses going up and down the hill. Transit from airport is also easy by bus (one transfer).

Since I'm not a 24/7 party person, I probably would look for another place once I come back to Prague. I would recommend this place to anyone who just needs a place to rest his head after a good night out with a drink or two too much. If you're an early riser and there for sightseeing / cultural interest, don't go there. It's a party place.

Very simple and not clean rooms. You can see the picture. It's the cheapest hostel in Prague. There is no internet, or TV room so there is nothing to do in the evening. You should also know that this is students campus so there is a lot of noise.
But there is a good Menza or Restaurant in Strahov - Strahov Menza. Very good meals and cheap prices. You can eat Salmon for 4 EUR or Kengoru steak for the same price.

One of a dozen dorms near the stadium that were built during the communist regime. The rooms are battered and spare, but the sheets were clean and their was plenty of hot water and water pressure in the communal bathrooms. Things are going on all around the place, the Central American soccer league played all day Saturday, and celebrated into the night, some dorm buildings have a bar, or a restaurant, or SPUS Strahov has an attached mini-mart. The dorms are located at the top of Petrin park, so you can walk to the Funicular Tram in only a few minutes, which will take you to a main street where you can catch lots of city transports. Easy location, and the price can't be beat in the times of the dropping dollar. Really basic, but I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

  • Liked — The price, cleanliness and location
  • Disliked — Old building with lousy accoustics, could be tough on people who are light sleepers.
