I had a pleasant stay at Hostel Maribou. There were some great pluses, and a few minuses but overall the hostel was fine.
The hostel is in a great location, really easy to get to old Prague by tram and and bus, and is around a 30 minute walk if you're feeling up to the exercise. Getting to the hostel from the airport requires a couple of transfers but it doesn't take too long to get there. The only thing that's a bit further away is the Prague castle, even then is super easy to get to by transport it just takes a bit longer.
The free breakfast served at the hostel from 7-11am was great, one of the better free hostel breakfasts I've had. The staff were super friendly, accommodating and helpful.
The rooms were nice and clean, however, the beds were really hard and uncomfortable. For a short stay this is fine, but I can imagine it wouldn't be nice for any more than a few days. Another issue were the bathrooms - on my floor there was only one shower and three toilets. It was sometimes a challenge to get a shower in and because so many people were using them they were not the nicest. The wifi was slow in the rooms, but it worked. It worked better in the downstairs common area.
Before going to the hostel I had read some complaints about the basement entertainment area. It was a little bit damp but it was fine to get in a couple of games of pool in the evening.
Overall, the hostel was fine for a short stay and whilst there are some downfalls I would recommend it.
