Hostelworld says:

Old Prague Hostel is in Old Town, making it 'the easiest place to use as a base for going everywhere in Prague' because it's 'central, yet on a quiet street away from all the tourist fuss', according to our guests. The staff are highly-praised because they 'think like backpackers', offering 'free towels, earplugs, breakfast bap already packed, free Internet and Wi-Fi'. They're also said to give 'the best advice on which tours to take...as well as where we should go if we opted out of a tour'.

  • Old Prague Hostel says

    One of our most unique features is the original paintings made exclusively for our hostel. We also offer exclusive discounts for must-see places in Prague only for our guests, like museums, tours and local bars and restaurants. There's also free tour and pub-crawl pickups from the hostel, going to the best clubs and bars in the area. This is a pretty great location, with the Municipal House and the Powder Tower just a two-minute walk and Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock just five minutes away. I like to recommend that people visit Kampa Island on the Certovka River at night. The Dancing House is also a must-see.
    For fun, our guests like to play party games, cook together, play music, watch one of our hundreds of movies and go out together. Most of our guests are aged 20 to 35 but we welcome families and older couples as well and we're wheelchair-friendly.

    Pros: location, comfy beds, helpful staff Cons: room didn't have proper curtains, walls are extremely thin, breakfast was very basic, there was no one enforcing the quiet time, (extremely inconsiderate people in the room next to us) do not accept card.
