This hostel is cosy and comfortable. Can't complain about the rooms which were spacious and clean. Good connections to city centre by bus (bus stop literally right outside) HOWEVER it loses a star for the showers which there werent enough of for the amount of people staying there. Also you have to hold down the button else the water doesn't...

Cheap hostel with friendly staff, decent beer, a good hangout area and cool people staying there, but the worst possible in other aspects. We didn't get any information beforehand that our room didn't have any window at all. Air felt really moist the whole time, left the hostel with clothes that weren't dry. The shower almost didn't work, you had...

After seeing so many positive reviews and browsing the website which contained some good photos, me and my travelling partner decided to book Hostel Marabou. On arrival, we saw that the hostel had won many awards and we were extremely positive. We were met by a friendly staff member on the desk who showed us to our rooms which had...

The hostel is located at Žižkov area of Prague and is hardly 15-20 minutes walk away from the central bus stop. There is a bus stop right outside the hostel, making it easily accessible to any part of the city. The staff at reception are very friendly and always available to offer their help. The hostel has a big common...

I had a pleasant experience in this hostel. Its a very cosy, calm place with very friendly atmosphere. I recommend this hostel. At such a less price they also offer free buffet breakfast. I loved the total experience of staying there.

Stayed there for one night in a "double room". Surprise 4% credit card fee to use debit cards, no window on room or corridor. Everything is always wet because of the showers and there is no way to let air in any way; everything (from the front door) smells like funghi. Smoking area is under common room, smokes seeps up...

Having been traveling now for nearly 7 months, I'm exhausted! Early mornings, missing breakfast and dodgy hostels can really take it out of you! Hostel Marabou is exactly what I needed!! Traveling on a budget, I walked in the door and a clean, nicely scented entrance hall greated us to which I turned to my friend and said wow this...

I had a horrible experience here. I left my shoes here and I was not able to retrieve them because the staff said they don't know. Then there is actually no internet connection, so beware! Then they would add more beds inside when the room was only made for 10, they added four more beds and it was hard to...

“Go to eat at the Zalezitost restaurant, round the corner! Amazing dishes and amazingly cheap prices! 3 meat dishes, extra sides, wine, beer and extra sauce for the equivalent of 20 euros! Also, the Rekorderlig cider is really cheap at the hostel so drink up!”
