“A&O Prague Metro Strizkov Hostel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

In my experience this was the absolute worst stay I have ever had in a hostel period. I was not expecting a 5 star hotel for the price of a hostel, however it was very expensive to stay at this place. The beer was more expensive at the hostel bar then any restaurant we visited in the city center and the breakfast was not worth the price paid. Not mention the hostel is very far away from the city center and it is not easy to get back to the hostel at night time. We did not feel safe in this area where the hostel is located and there is absolutely nothing to doing in the area. My recommendation is... do not waste your money on this ugly money hungry hostel. Find a place that is closer to the city of Prague.

Room Tip: Find another Hostel closer to the city of Prague.

Dear Andy,

thank you for your honest feedback. We're sorry to hear that you didn't seem to like your stay with us. Our prices depend on the category you've booked. Naturally, the hostel standard is very low-priced and our 3*** hotel standard is comparable with any 3*** hotel in Prague.

You are, of course, right noting that our beer at the bar costs a bit more than in Czech restaurants/clubs. Prague is known to offer beer even cheaper than water. It is therefore difficult to stay competitive in the hotel industry. You may ask other hoteliers and they would tell you the same.

Nevertheless, we appreciate your comments and take it to heart.

Our location is very handy for business people and groups as they prefer the proximity to the fair and congress centre and the space within the building for larger groups.

We have put a lot of effort into renovating the whole complex; the rooms and service are outstanding, also the beergarden with entertainment facilities in summer. The outside look of the building is not yet A&O standard but will be in 2014. To us, it is the comfort within the hotel that matters first.

In February, we have had a special deal where we've sold each room for only 5€. No matter if single, family or multi-bed room. We would like to dissociate ourselves from your argument of being 'money hungry'. Our accommodation is as fair-priced as most other Prague hotels and hostels.

We'd love to have you as our guest again in one of our other hotels and hostels in Germany and Austria. You will see that we offer a very central location (almost always next to the central train station) and super prices.

Thanks again for your feedback!

Kind regards,
Your A&O support team

We paid 25 euro for a night, i am a person who stayed in 4 star hotels, hostels, even in cheap motels and did not die....this time we were on o low budget. My boyfriend and i were very pleased with our staying, the bed was great, the location was ok, we took the subway wich we quite enjoyed and were in a few minutes in the center of Prague. The food was not the best but we do have to understand that you can t get caviar for the price you pay. The staff was great, especially one of the concierges, very helpfull, he even took the time to draw us a map as i have very bad orientation skills...the only thing i did not like at all was the fact that the shover cabin's drain was full and the water could not run down so the whole showering procedure was awfull...we had a great time overall, we stayed for 4 nights and everybody was super friendly to us and we had a lot of fun. Once more, i would like to point out the fact that this is a 2 star hotel, not the Hilton's, you pay around 25 euro for a night not 400 so do not expect to find the royal chamber but be sure that you'll find great people who like to help if you know how to treat them right...

Prague has an abundance of hotels and in low season, when fewer tourists venture to the Czech capital, there are many good deals to be struck. Therefore normally there would be no point in selecting this hotel quite some distance away from the city center. But in February of 2013 they celebrated completion of extensive redecoration of the rooms and advertised an offer we just could not refuse. Now that we stayed there we might even come back when they are not offering super-special deals
.
The architecture of this high rise building is everything but beautiful. The facilities in the rooms are very basic. There is no television in the room, and if I remember correctly there was only one electrical socket in the room to recharge your mobile or camera batteries.
The window arrangement was highly unusual. They could not be opened, so that the only fresh air into
the room could be let in through the door from the corridor. Yet, despite double glazing in the cold winter of 2012/2013 there was a constant draught from the windows. Luckily the radiator worked and was strong enough to keep us warm. The beds were new and comfortable. There are two lifts, so that usually you do not have to wait too long, even though one of them may be blocked by guests with lots of luggage in or out of it. Shower and toilet are in two different rooms so that you do not block your partner when having a shower. Both these rooms go off a little corridor which is separated from the bed room by a door, meaning that there are TWO doors between the beds and the outside corridor, which makes for good noise insulation fom other guests in the hall outside on their way between the lifts and their rooms.
Breakfast is very good, with an enormous variety of things to chose from. Juice is closer to real juice than to the coloured water that many other establishments dare to offer to their guests.
All members of staff that we met were extremely friendly and helpful.
Contrary to other remarks here we never felt unsafe when walking the short distance to the Metro station.The trip from the Metro station Strizkov (on line C) to the city center takes less than 20 minutes.
If you want your own toilet and bathroom for a comparatively low price then go for this hotel !

Room Tip: There is a highway on one side of the building. If you are sensitive to traffic noise, ask for a roo...

Stayed here with my partner for four nights. Close to the metro so easy access to the old or new town. The walk to and from the metro is not very pleasant dark streets, always felt unsafe when walking back to and from the metro. The hotel was very basic. Rooms were in need of some care and if not updating new curtains / carpets / beds at the very least! The hotels atmosphere was very gloom and we did not feel safe, one night we came out of the lift to our floor and the lights were out luckily are room was facing the lift so keeping the lift open for light was the only way we could see, light switches did not help. Breakfast was not nice luckily we did not pay extra for breakfast always cold and not a lot on offer at all ! We did not expect a lot when we booked this hotel Because of the lack of stars but this hotel I would give it less. Also we were requested to always hand our key in at reception when ever we went out, which we never did as the hotel never had staff around so anyone could get hold of the key behind the desk. The plus of this hotel I would say the wifi only connected in the cafe and the man at reception for guidance. We would defiantly pay more next time to ensure a more secure and looked after hotel. Tickets for the metro have to be purchased from a machine inside the station and make sure you have change as the women in the shop does not speak a word of English and to get change or try and speak Czech does not make a difference in her response. Other than the hotel our stay in Prague was amazing and enjoyed it and would defiantly stay again!

Dear Bella,

thank you for your feedback. Of course, we'd like to take the time and reply to your comments.

I'm afraid, we cannot really make the Prague Metro look nicer, safer and more multilingual. So sorry for the trouble but unfortunately this is beyond our powers.

It is interesting that you felt the hotel atmosphere was gloomy as A&O has painted and re-designed the whole inner complex using bright colours according to the hostel chain's high standards. It might be an unusual feeling being a guest in such a high building, we understand that. We will, of course, forward this matter to the hotel manager.

A&O's "all-you-can-eat" breakfast is always cold. The choice of yoghurts, cereals, breads, cheeses and assorted cold meats along with the salad buffet and fruits is A&O standard.
We do understand that you are probably used to British breakfast standard with bacon, beans and eggs.

Thanks for appreciating our free WiFi in all public areas.

A quick note to our key system: A&O is going to replace the keys with key cards in the near future. The reason you were required to hand in your set of keys is that, in case you loose them, anyone would know where to go and could break in your hotel room. So, this procedure was merely for safety reasons. We have a lot of young guests who travel as a group. They somehow tend to loose their keys more frequently than our other guests.

We're hoping to see you in one of our hotels and hostels in Europe again.
Sunny regards from Prague,

Your A&O Support Team

This hotel located in the northern parts of Prague had a lot of bad points to talk about and that´s just the reality. But you can´t expect a lovely standard when you pay around 20 euro/night for a double room. We stayed there with our floorball team and we didn´t have any big demands so I felt that we left this hotel pretty grateful after all.

The breakfast is not much to talk about, the rooms isn´t very comfortable and it´s very far from city centre but you can go by Metro to the "Muzeum" station in just 15 minutes.

If it was possible I would have graded this hotel to 2,5.
