“Great location, good price and fair business!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The hostel is in a prime location! less than 5 minutes from the main squares and churches! The rooms are good, the toilet and bathrooms clean! There r a lor of free things included in the price, so u won't get charged extra for almost anything! They offer discounts in many restaurants, museums and tours!

Room Tip: Avoid the room at the common area where people go for breakfast!

Cheap, full of friendly people, the breakfast is not the best but at least is included, the hostel and the rooms are clean. You need a bit of orientation to find it after going out becose the center of prague is a labyrinth apart from that is well located.
The lockers are pretty large for almost all the type of luggage and that help to feel relaxed when you go out becouse all your staff can be locked.

If looking for a hostel, this is a good choice, location is great , toliets and showers are clean,
staff is friendly, there is a kitchen, breakfast is included in price (it's not something great but still...) We stayed in a 5 dorm mixed room (3 of us), beds were ok, not comfortable but ok...

In short - cheap price, great location, everything good/bad you expect from hostel... would go there again...

Very clean, friendly & helpful staff, close to many attractions for about $20usd a nite. Would definitely stay again if in prague. As far as hostels go, the free cereal and pre-packed ham&cheese sandwiches, free lockers and towel/linen use was nice as well.

This is not the cheapest hostel. However, in my three days there, I found the staff to be very helpful. It's a short walk from the main town square. The dorms and bathrooms are kept very tidy.

Most importantly, they don't nickel and dime you. Nearly everything is included when you stay here: Sheets, towels, wifi, breakfast, earplugs, and lockers. Old Prague Hostel offers lots of discounts on tours booked through the front desk.

Highly recommended.

if you are travelling on budget and need a good place to stay. Then this is a perfect place for you.
The dorms are nice, clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful (always ready to help you with their best). The location is perfect to move around the city. Very close to the Old Town square.

First of all, I would like to say that I had a 3 star experience at this hostel but that generally it probably deserves a 4 star rating.

The hostel is located close to the old town square as most have mentioned and another central square Republisky (if I'm not mistaken) which has a metro station. It is accessible from the train station by use of the metro (your bags count as a second person btw) or by a 20 minute walk for the more adventurous. The bus station is about a 10 minute walk. The hostel is quite safe. Buzzer to get in and a code once you have checked in. Nice big lockers and across the street from a police station! Close to quite a few bars and restaurants. I recommend Chapeau Rouge for nightlife and Lokal for "ethnic" food thats nearby . I don't recommend the pub crawl though if you a short on cash. Great way to meet people but not very price effective.

I can't remember if there was a kitchen but there is a very light breakfast of cereal, milk and orange juice to tide you over and a sandwhich (egg or ham) to take with you for the day for free. There is a pretty big common area and the hostel is decently clean though not immaculate.

The staff are friendly and quite willing to help but what I haven't figured out is their system for assigning people rooms. I booked on hostelbookers and we had to change rooms 3 times and we stayed 3 nights. Try to book with them per phone, internet or in person. On the other hand the staff will be able to give you brochures and suggestions for your excursions. (Like an afternoon in the beergardens by the metronome).
