Amazing hostel. The cosy basement bar is the perfect place to meet people. Totally recommend Toby's to solo travellers and everyone else!! Staff are super friendly and helpfull. There are activities organised every night like beer tasting, crepe night and BBQ night. Facilities are great, including kitchen and garden area. If you're there on a Tuesday or Friday, take Richard's walking tour...be a sponge. Absorb what he says. Don't ask questions.
Best hostel ever! From the friendly Helpfull staff, free meals, cheap drinks, interesting and friendly travelers! The reason they have a 7 night stay per year policy is because u won't want to leave!! Thanks xox
Apart from noisy drunks and 2 couples hooking up around 3-5am preventing a good nights sleep, kitchen is solid and common room is good. A tram ride from town but getting a ticket is not so simple (I walked several blocks to find the yellow dispenser and then asked the locals which button to press). Market nearby.
Incredible experience with an even more incredible staff. They were knowledgeable of the areas cultural sights, night life, and just wonderful to talk to. Best hostel I have stayed in quiet some time. And their breakfast was fantastic.

Awesome place to stay in Prague, little bit out of the centre of the city but very accessible by tram. The facilities and beds are awesome with big trunk lockers for belongings. Great atmosphere with the basement bar, lounge and outdoor area a fantastic place to meet other travellers. The hostel has something on every night of the week whether it be darts, trivia or free BBQ etc. which acts as a good warm up before heading out to experience Prague's nightlife.
Amazing hostel! The location is about a 30min walk from the center but its nice to be slightly out of all the touristy areas. The hostel itself is really well designed, our room was basic but clean as was the bathroom. The staff are what make it though as they are all incredibly friendly and helpful. At check in the provide you with a map and all the information you need to get around the city, and are happy to help book taxis or any excursions you might want to try. Best hostel of our trip!
We stayed in a private room with en suite at the top of the hostel. Towels, ground coffee and percolator provided. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfasts, in red brick cellars, were generous and healthy with make your own ingredients - tasty and listened to relaxing music by 'Paper Kites'. Several evenings of free crepes and BBQ with good beer from bar. Altogether a very good atmosphere and definitely would go again. Prague cost of living cheaper than Britain.

The best place to stay in Prague. The location is Holesovice is within walking of the train station, and only few stops by tram from Wenceslaus Square. The historical building is completely modern and the dorm rooms are spacious with single beds in many rooms. Excellent breakfast for 120 Kc. Plus they have free crepes one day and free BBQ another day. I will stay here again.
The hostel's location was way more hassle than expected, especially at night when trams rarely ran. In retrospect I should have booked a different hostel closer to the city center. Other than that, it was fine. Beds were comfy, everything was clean and worked well. Nice friendly/helpful staff; only incident was that one misled me about taxi prices to try to get me to use their service.
Have stayed in over a dozen hostels while backpacking around Europe and I can safely say that Sir Tobys is the best I stayed in. Excellent staff, great cellar pub, organized activities every night and a free bbq. Hostel is not located in the city center which means this is not a party hostel. For the price of a one euro tram ticket you can be in the city center in 10 minutes. Awesome social atmosphere. Great local restaurants and supermarket close by. Stay here!
It actually looked to me more a hotel that a hostel, it's very clean and the guys and the staff is very professional and helpful. A little bit too far out of the center though. Very safe and close to some shops and a supermarket. Highly suggested, especially if you do not care to stat exactly in downtown!
Amazing atmosphere and friendly staff. The night I got there it put on a free barbecue and it hosts many events like trivia night or live music in its bar. By having a really great bar downstairs, the hostel makes it super easy to meet people. It is probably the nicest hostel I have stayed in throughout my travels. The only problem is that it is a far from Prague 1 and public transit closes early. Since it's in Prague, though, it's cheap to get a cab.
Sir Toby's was an easy choice (pub downstairs, and it's named after me!). The place is great for socialising, with cheap beer (happy hour = 0.9 euro/ 0.5l), darts competitions, pub quizzes, FREE bbqs, live music, the list goes on...The hostel is quite out of the way (15 min by metro/tram) but the lively atmosphere & staff make up for it (shout out to Richard, who gave me some great insider advice on hiking (we visited Karlstejn Castle, and hiked through the Bohemian Karst, just beautiful!).
I've stayed in hostels across 18 countries in the last 5 moths and this one easit takes the cake as the best I've stayed in. There's a great bar with a very social happy hour, free BBQ dinners in the courtyard frequently, and every bed has it's own reading light and PowerPoint. My only advice is, if you think the top of the triple bunk is a good idea, think about how difficult it'll be to get in after a big night.
Sir Toby's is a great hostel. The facilities make it feel like a hotel with a bunch of people in each room. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful. They even served us free dinner one night! There is a pub in the basement that serves cheap Czech beer which provides a great place for travelers to hang out and meet people. I highly recommend this place!
By far the best hostel I stayed in! 12 person rooms may not be to everyone's taste but the staff here were so fantastic, and the atmosphere in general was so good I would definitely stay here again! Met some cool people in the rooms and loads in the bar! Hat tip to the Croatian barman; he was a real good laugh and got everyone talking to each other. He got my name wrong solidly for 2 days but it was maybe my fault, after 30 mins I felt bad correcting him and just went along with it.
Best hostel I've ever stayed at. Comfortable, great atmosphere and awesome people. Not super close to the city centre but totally worth it. GO TO THIS HOSTEL. You won't regret it
When looking at the map, this hotel may seem in a bad location, but actually it's nearer to the center than it seems. The hostel itself is fantastic! Breakfast (not included) is very nice, and the place has its own underground bar. Very good atmosphere and staff is fantastic! very helpful and fun. Very cheap! Totally recommended.
