The Clown and Bard has everything you need as a backpacker. Overall there is a good vibe, very friendly staff and fair prices for a bed and something to drink. When you wake up in the morning, (with or without a hangover) there is a nice, cheap breakfast waiting for you. If you should be in the situation of not knowing how to spend your time in this beautiful city, the staff will gladly provide you with info about the city. Whether you are into sightseeing or a view of the Czech nightlife, the staff will know where to go, and if they don´t know, it´s likely that there will be some local expats hanging out, who knows what to do and what not to do. Also this hostel has its own comedian, Horek (Greg). He will make you laugh, I promise.
The first time I stayed at The Clown and Bard, I had just got to Prague from Paris and was rather confused by the rather chaotic scene of this hostel. But as time went by, I experienced the place as a really cozy "home away from home". Be sure to get some beers and a chat with the people in the bar before heading out. Once you have stayed at The Clown and Bard, I will bet you would like to stay there again the next time you visit Prague.
- 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
