“Nice hostel for less price”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

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! :)

Rooms and beds were huge and really clean, the whole place was very well looked after. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Small free breakfast. Good bar and communal areas, could have made more of it by organising events or something. Quite chilled out. In a bit of an annoying location as you had to get a bus for 15 mins out of the city, ok to walk during the day but not at night.

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The dorm was very big and clean, the beds have a big locker each as well as a little shelf to put things like water, book, phone etc while you sleep. There is a full kitchen and big social area with sofas, table football, pool and free internet in the basement (smells a little bit funky but nothing you can't ignore). The staff are really friendly and helpful and you get a free beer when you arrive! Our dorm at least was big and everyone was really friendly, as were most people in the hostel generally.
It's a bit of a way out from the center but the bus stops right outside and comes frequently, you can be at Old Town Square in about 20 minutes. There are supermarkets nearby.
Overall a really nice place and great value for money!

Stayed here in July 2010. 1 girl and 3 boys, we stayed in the big 18-person mixed dorm. Friendly staff and a very social hostel, we met people from all over. Free internet downstairs is great, although the pool table and stuff in the basement are creepy because it's so dark and musky smelling, but has a very "hostel" feel to it. They provided us with locks, linens, towels, a small and basic breakfast, and a welcome beer! Location is good although not in center of town, but still in the city of Prague, and Prague transportation is very good and easy.
