“Excellent location!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The best part about this hostel is the location: it's extremely close to the Charles Bridge, making it an easy walking distance to many of the main tourist attractions.
Comfy bed. Clean. Plugs and reading lights for each bed.

Unlike all other hostels we have stayed in they exercise no flexibility and are so pedantic. We stayed here previously.

We made a mistake on our booking the second time and called within 30 minutes to correct it. Not only did they kick us out when we had nowhere to stay and did not offer us any help when we had nowhere to go and it was late at night already they took full payment for a room we didnt stay in.

Thanks for nothing. Definitely not in the spirit of hostel hospitality.

The location of Hostel Mango definitely made it one of the best hostels we stayed in during our travel around europe. The Charles Bridge is 1 minute away and is a great halfway point between Prague palace and Prague old town across the bridge. Rooms were good with 2 plug sockets by every bed. Wifi could have been improved as it wasnt consistent. Also we didnt have hot water in our bathroom, which wasnt much of a problem in the summer because of how hot it was!

The hostel's location is perfect, right next to the Charles Bridge making traveling around the city very easy. The room I stayed in was very nice with an en-suite (shared with 5 others), a very comfy bed and 2 bedside sockets. The reception was great as it offered leaflets of places to visit during the day and nightlife (I really recommend the bar crawl which ends at the 5 storey club). Only thing that I would say needs improving is the wifi because it worked occasionally if you stayed in the same position and didn't move! If you are traveling to Prague then i really recommend Hostel Mango.

I'd like to give a better evaluation to this hostel but unfortunately I couldn't and I'll explain why (I hope that the staff of the hostel will read my review so maybe they could tell me if I was just unlucky or change a bit some things in the hostel). So let's start from the more positive thing: the position is incredible, just two minutes walking from Karluv Most (St Charles Bridge) so you are close to everything and you can visit the city by walking (they have also really efficient subway service but you won't probably need it to visit the center). The staff was cordial and helpful; our room was clean but a bit messy, with lots of things who looked like they need to be fixed or changed. Anyway it's a cheap hostel and it was fine; the main problem for us was the kitchen that was almost unusable. There was a total disorder in the whole kitchen, no label for the food in the fridge, dirty dishes everywhere and in the night lots of glasses, empty bottles and other stuff left all over the kitchen and the common room close to it; in the morning the staff cleaned everything but I think they should take more care about guests being respectful of the common areas and clean what they use, I think it should be obvious but looks like there it wasn't. I really hope they will improve it because I'm sure if they do my evaluation could easily become very good or excellent :)

From the minute we walked in everyone was friendly. The staff were extremely accommodating and the atmosphere was great. Not an organised party hostel as such but there was always people to socialise with. The rooms were basic enough and the bathrooms were failing to pieces but clean enough to put up with especially when the other facilities like kitchen, courtyard and common lounge were so good

I'm pretty sure that staying at this hostel has made our trip much more fun. The rooms weren't perfect. One of our lockers was broken, so we had to cram all of our stuff into one locker. The shower lacked cleanliness, as most of the metal things were rusty, but other than that it was ok. Breakfast was alright, but it's the same thing everyday so if you stay for longer than a week, you might want to go out and eat. Unless you like having the same thing for breakfast everyday, I guess.
The location was perfect. We were a few steps away from the Metro station, the Charles Bridge, and plenty restaurants with great food. They could not have picked out a better place, really. There's no pubs close to the location, but the only thing you need to do, basically, is cross the Charles Bridge and you'll find plenty of pubs on the other side.
We were only supposed to stay 2 nights, but then on our last day our bus got postponed by nearly 12 hours. Even though we'd checked out, the staff was extremely nice, and let us stay inside, in the common room, or courtyard, free of charge.
I recommend this hostel to everyone that's backpacking around Europe and needs a low-cost place to stay overnight. However, due to the low-cost rooms, students or young people are more attracted to this place, so this leads to drinking, loud noise and laughter coming from inner courtyard.

Conclusion: best place to be if you're a fun youngster looking to meet people from all around the world, and have fun in Prague.

Room Tip: If you're not ok with people drinking and having fun until late during the night, then don't...
