Just 3 minutes to the Old Town Square, Old Prague Hostel is at a superb location. The 24hr reception with staff who are always willing to help makes the stay even more enjoyable. The 24hr reception also makes checking-in anytime very convenient. Simple free breakfast in the morning in the lounge/kitchen is a great time to meet people. The hostel is kept really clean - both by staff, and by fellow travelers.

Good to note that full payment needs to be done in cash upon arrival. There are cash machines available about 3 minutes away from the hostel as well.

If you're looking for something simple, homely and convenient, Old Prague Hostel's the place to bunk at. :)

Did not expect the hostel to be so good. It is super cheap - less than £15 a night - and really central, near the Old Town Square and within walking distance of lots of main attractions, bars and a metro stop.
The place has a really nice feel to it, it is bright and colourful and very clean. There are large common areas to socialise and have breakfast, which is really good and served til 10am. The rooms are basic but clean and absolutely fine for backpackers' needs. I'd definitely stay here again.

The hostel is situated just a few mintues away from the centre of town and you can easily walk to most sights from here. The dorm was adequate for our needs (Bed and a cupboard to lock bags away). The hostel was not too load at night times so you could get to sleep. There was a lot of leaflets available for tours etc at the fron office. The staff are also very helpful if you have any questions. Security is very good. Rooms can be locked and you require a code to get into the building. Camera also facing the entrance. The Clock tower bar crawl is well worth participating in - the organisors come to the hostel common room to pick you up. They are also very friendly and have tons of advice to hand. Great place to stay at when back packing.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Old Prague Hostel in late-September, 2010.

Room size:
We chose a private room for two. Extremely small but big enough to sleep in. The only things in room were 2 low twin beds, a small table-height wardrobe, and a mirror on the wall. No chairs so either sleep or sit on the bed to relax. Look at the attached picture to see me almost touch both walls.

Cleanliness:
The room and bathrooms were clean.

Bathroom:
Bedroom has a mirror. The single shared men’s toilet on our floor was in its own small wc with a sink. The shared men’s shower room has 2 separate showers that are separated by shower curtains. Same setup for women.

Location:
This hotel is in a decent location across the street from a police station and a shopping mall. It is about a 20-minute walk from the main train station (though it took us much longer – the street maps and signs are extremely hard to follow and don’t even match sometimes). We did not take any public transportation while in Prague. We walked everywhere (Prague Castle, Wenceslas Square, etc.) in roughly 30-minutes.

Miscellaneous:
Free breakfast available (cereal and juice). You can also grab a free pre-made sandwich in the morning to take with you as you sightsee. Free wifi but extremely poor, unusable signal. They said it only works on the main floor and the 2nd floor. We were on the 2nd floor but did not get a good enough signal to connect. Nowhere in room to hang a clothesline if you are doing laundry in the sink. As expected, it is pretty noisy at night when people are going in and out for the nightlife. Be on the lookout for scantily-clad college girls in the hall going from their rooms to the shower. ;-)

Summary:
I recommend this hostel for budget-minded travelers who want a clean, inexpensive place in Prague.

If you are looking to meet other travellers, I recommend this hostel for sure. The rooms are small, and the walls are thin, so if you are a light sleeper, I recommend earplugs, but otherwise it is clean and they offer a free breakfast included (sandwich, coffee or tea and cereal). It is within walking distance to all of the major sites and they provide free internet (though it can be busy) and a common room with games and English movies and tv shows. Very fun place to stay!

Did not know what to expect given mixed reviews but very enjoyable stay in city centre location. Staff friendly and helpful, free internet and breakfast. Easy walking distance of train, tram and metro.
