Old Prague Hostel
Ranked #135 of 691 Specialty Lodging in Prague
Reviewed July 24, 2013

This hostel is great. Great location, great facilities and great service. Rooms are impeccable, CLEAN bathrooms on each floor, central location (10 minutes from old town square and 10 min for Prague's principal train station), and the best of all: you have free breakfast with a very decent sandwich included. The only inconvenient is that they DO NOT accept cards and be prepared to do a quick trip to the ATM to get local cash because they'll charge you in Czech Koronas.

In the heart of Prague you'll find Old Prague Hostel. The hostel is an old apartment building and is 5 stories tall. The front desk was very helpful and they where fluent in English. You get free breakfast - bagel with ham and cheese or an vegetarian option. Coco puffs and/or cornflakes as well. Free wifi and 3 Internet computers available. The toilets where clean and the bathrooms as well.

Bear in mind that this is an old house, so it smells a bit old....

I recommend staying here!

The location is excellent; it's within walking distance of practically everything you want to see. The staff is friendly but not overly so. They provide towels but try to get one quickly because some are very small and more suited for children than adults. Breakfast isn't great. They provide you with a sandwich and there are a couple types of cereal, as well as orange juice. But it's a hostel, not a 5 star hotel, so I was happy. The wifi is terrible.

Old Prague Hostel is walking distance to everything you'll want to see when in Prague. The staff were very helpful and friendly. It is clean enough, but they definitely need some more bathrooms/showers near the rooms, because 1 toilet shared with an entire floor of people was not enough. The breakfast was kinda gross and not much to choose from, but it's free so can't really complain about that. Wifi didn't work very well but they have computers you can use for free.
Another really good thing is that if you have a huuuuge backpack, it will fit in the lockers, just bring your own lock. We've come across many hostels where the lockers fit nothing.

Definitely do the free walking tour (sandeman's) that they offer, but not the pub crawl, it's not worth your money.

Stayed here when inter-railing around Europe and it was up there with the better hostels. Its biggest positive is definitely its location - within walking distance to everything. The rooms are good and the place is clean. We stayed for 2 nights and we did have to move room for the second night which was not a problem but it probably could be avoided by better planning within the hostel. Towels and linen are both provided, its good getting a towel as it saves having to pack away your own wet towel into rucksack. Breakfast is also provided which was an added bonus - it is good as far as hostels go.

Any shortcomings of this hostel are overshadowed by its excellent location which in the end is the most important thing to me as really all i want is a bed for the night.

The location is good, it was relatively clean. However, breakfast was a complete joke, the internet barely worked, online they said they had parking but on arrival they sent us to a parking garage that ended up costing more than the hostel did, the staff was not very helpful at check in concerning things to do/see, we came back to our room the second day to a note saying we had to switch rooms (fine) but we had booked a 6 bed room and they just moved us to an 8 bed one without noting it in our reservation. Then when I got back to find the room full at 1 in the morning they just made me move rooms again, this time I didn't even get a locker. ]The entire stay, any time something went wrong a staffer just blamed it on another staffer and they never really got anything accomplished. There are better hostels in Prague.

My friends and I backpacked for 2 months around Europe, and this was by far our favorite hostel. It is located within walking distance of everything (all the historical sites, museums, bars, restaurants, and train station). It is extremely clean. They don't make you pay for towels, linens, breakfast, keys, etc *which a lot of hostels do*. The staff is overly friendly. I felt completely safe. The beds were nice and big. The price is just right!

Room Tip: The 6 bed dorms were very spacious with nice big windows.
