Located pretty far from the old town, nearest tram stop is about 800 meters away and it'll take 10-20 mins to get into town via public. Martin at reception was awesome and super friendly/helpful, but the rest of the staff were pretty meh. Amazing smokers room/chill out zone downstairs with pool table, and upstairs common areas too, however the atmosphere was a little lacking here, as a solo traveler it was a bit hard to meet people. Ok beds and showers (have to hold a button for water though)
really nice atmosphere in the lobby and everything. the location is perfect for exploring zizkov and pragues nightlife / bar scene due to the extremely thin wooden walls, it was very noise though value for money is still good take orepax along!

The hostel itself is good, clean, safe, and interesting. The location is a little far from all the attractions but if you're not a walker then you're not a traveler. The kitchen is great, there are enough bathrooms, and the beds are clean as comfy. The holy thing I didn't like were the showers, they were timed and only stayed on for literally 3 seconds even. Other than that it's a nice hostel with a grand breakfast, same stuff you get at any hostel but just done well and plenty.
Nice staff and we very much liked the interior of the hostel!:)
I booked private twin room, but there was no window. It was not hot day therefore, we could stand it. However, if i imagine it was a hot day.... And there were so many people staying, but only one shower were available for both man and women, We had to wait until really late night to take shower. Location was not so far from the city, if you use tram. The people who work there was really good at English and very nice.
We had a room with NOT even a Window! You have to ask and pay to have towels. Several rooms are situated just behind the salon, which is awfully noisy late in the night. Walls are very thin, you hear everything. It was nearly impossible to sleep before 2 am. Breakfast is included but don't expect too much, milk, coffee, tea and no service, you wash your dishes yourself. Hostel is located 20min from Bus Terminal on top of a hill, it's quite a long way when you're travelling with a luggage.
marabou is not just a hostel, is more than that..probabely the best hostel where i stayed last years.
This is a good place to stay. About 20 mins walk from the main station, but you know it in advance, so it was no problem. It is a more local area which is great. Went to some local bars, and they were a lot more fun than the tourist area. Place is good, baths not really that clean, but everything else is great. Loved that it had such an awesome kitchen and hangout place. Awesome people awesome place! I can only recommend this hostel!
The showers were terriblec, the push buttons don't last long enough. Atmosphere was terrible, better off meeting people in pubs or restaurants in the town. And staff member that checked us in gave us NO information about Prague or the hostel.
