Best location for the price especially as I booked it last minute, great to walk out and immediately able to shop at the centre and able to walk to old town square. Very cramped living quarters, smelt due to everyone in the mixed dorm having their laundry hanging in the room, still able to meet people in the common room.


There was one shower between about 20-30 people. The location is excellent, right in the centre of town, and the receptionist are not only extremely attractive, but incredibly helpful with almost any of your needs.


Was a short trip so booked it for it's location and it was just that- an excellent location but facilities were all quite average. Beds were alright. Layout of hostel was a bit weird. Overall good if you want to see the city for the price you pay. The staff was nice and helpful and gave good advice.


Party hostel. Lot of young people making a mess in the kitchen (hehe). Dorms where ok. Bathrooms a bit dirty, but ok for backpackers like us.


Great hostel. Very accommodating


This hostel has the best location ever! It's right on the central square of Prague and near clubs and supermarkets. We even had a balcony with a great view on the whole square. The staff is very friendly, helpful and gives you a lot of advice on where to go. The decoration is really nice, the whole hostel is painted beautifully. The bathrooms were very luxurious, new and clean. We had a great stay in Prague, thanks to hostel Orange!


Orange Hostel in Prague was great! The location was the best and only 5 minutes from the old square. And on top of that you the hostel is located right on one of the main shopping streets and only 10 minutes walk from the central station. I would highly recommend this place to everyone!


This hostel is within walking distance from the main train station and the old town square. It has a pretty good location. Staff are friendly and hospitable. However, it can be a little noisy during night time as it is not very far away from bar, club and main pedestrian way. Bathroom was a bit dirty at my time of stay, and I think frequent cleaning of the bathroom is required from time to time.


WARNING a handful of rooms at the hostel have not been refurbished as specified in their description/pictures. 8 bed dorm room and bathroom on ground floor was covered in the belongings and rubbish of the other people in the room. Staff made no effort to have it tidied for new arrivals or ask the other occupants to be respectful. "Ensuite" area was OLD and unkept. The shower door had no handle and couldnt be closed. Power plug next to my bed was coming out of the wall. I left after first night.


Perfect location--within walking distance of train station and main attractions.


Lockers were broken in the room (had to share). Didn't receive a towel when I checked in (check in was delayed about 2 hours). Power outlets in the common area didn't work. Dryer didn't dry my clothes.


Fantastic place to stay. Very helpful staff. But the best has to be the daily turnover rate. 20 new faces everyday and the hostel is designed such that you have no choice but to interact. Made great friends.

All in all, the receptionists are very pretty


Location can't be beat!! Walking distance to everything including main train station and tons of sights. It was a little noisy when I was there and due to my room location I could hear everything in the place. Overall a great stay! And the restaurant downstairs is very good as well.


It was very cheap and located in the central location of Prague. The rooms are new and clean, enough sockets and lights, also a personal locker. The wifi in the rooms was bad and everyone had to stay on the stairs for internet, though it provided a very chance for chatting. Definitely needs more toilets and bathrooms, it was so crowded during the morning when everyone needs to take a shower.


Incredible location right on Wenceslas Square in the center of the tourist area of Prague. Dorms didn't have air conditioning, but the big windows helped with that. Good atmosphere - everyone was a friendly, young traveler. Wifi didn't work in the dorms, which was annoying. But overall, great hostel.


Best hostel I've ever stayed in. Really good for young backpackers.


Great location right in the city center, also 5 mins away from main train station by metro. Rooms were clean but very hot. There is no atmosphere in this hostel or areas to meet other guests just a kitchen and that's all.


The entrance is slightly difficult to find but it's located on the shopping road/square and is really only a short 10-minute walk away from historical centre. Staff members at the reception counter are quite helpful (we accidentally overbooked the number of beds and the person at our check-in helped us out with cancelling 2 of the beds). Be prepared to climb the stairs with your luggage! Cleanliness of the bathrooms varies on days.


My friends and I stayed at this hostel for one night due to a logistics error in our travel plans. For this reason, the hostel served its purpose. It was good for the price, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, the kitchen was a little small as well as the common area. The rooms were spacious but the atmosphere was a little bland for a few college kids on a month long, post-graduation trip. Nevertheless, it was a good, cheap hostel.
