“Hostel in Prague”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

It is good option for budget travelers. This hostel offered rooms in dormitory. Conditions are very basic, hostel is crowded but clean. Prices are cheap, as I remember include breakfast. Location isn't the best but you can easily reach hostel by tram.

i and a friend were in sokol for 5 nights, twice broken into, much stuff stolen, no support for staff, who refused to believe us till third breakin in another dorm. Staff unfriendly, looks like old communist hotel, would be in good location but strange un-hostel energy. Lots of stairs. (ok for us)

Room Tip: Bring your own lock. Otherwise, good place....

We stayed here for three nights during a student conference. The location was fantastic - just meters from the island Kampa, a beautiful park, a small square leading up the stairs to Charles´ bridge. Although the accomodation was very basic, I really liked the showers, nice and clean. On one wall there hanged a big map of Prague with a sofa under it, a great place to get inspiration for trips. They also had a coffee machine, that made the best caffe latte only for 10 czk :) Another big plus was the terace with a magnificient view, where you could enjoy your DIY breakfast.

I stayed at the hostel for three nights. the location is brilliant and close to all amenities and tourists sites. the staff were helpful and the vending machine for drinks was a extra treat, especially considering the food prices in Europe. I would recommend the hostel anytime and perhaps return there some day. Keep the spirit of Sokol alive!!!

This place is in an amazing location on the 'other side' of Charles Bridge. It's about a 5-10 minute walk to the bridge through a beautiful park and cobbled streets in a really pretty part of Prague. It is away from the crazy tourist hoards that are typical of the old city centre.

The hostel is also pretty basic. I found it clean (but it was really quiet when I was there) and tidy but it does feel a bit like a monastery in that there are absolutely no extra touches. It was dirt cheap however (I think I paid 11euros for a dorm bed) so can't complain.

All in all I would recommend this place on location alone but just be aware it is very spartan.

We stayed here for one night only during a backpacking trip. We absolutely loved Prague and I think the location of this hostel is part of the reason for this. It's in Mala Strana, the nicest - in my opinion - part of Prague. It's just over the river from the old town and it's where all the embassies are situated so it's quiet at night and full of nice little bars and taverns. We paid 35 euros for a double room which was tiny but in most places in Prague you wouldn't get a filthy room way out of town for less than 50 euros. Sure the bathrooms needed cleaning and the kitchen was a bit messy but if you just want somewhere to rest your head it's not so bad. You get what you pay for really and this place was a bargain although VERY basic.
