Prague was one of the cities that we loved the most in Eastern Europe. Our expectations were really high before our arrival but in the end they have been exceeded! If you intend to visit this lovely and surprising city, you might want to know where to stay in Prague and that’s why we’re sharing this recommendation with you. Here we present the Ahoy! New Town hostel 🙂
Remark: always when I used to think about any accommodation in Prague the movie ”Hostel” came in my mind! hahahahha Have you watched it? I was so freaked out about it! Seriously! Thank God Ahoy was a good place to stay in Prague! 😛
Well, it’s worth reminding Prague was the sixth city we visited during our eurotrip in May/18. We also visited Madrid, Malta, Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Krakow, Malmo, Copenhagen and Toledo.
Where to stay in Prague:
Location: one of the reasons we recommend Ahoy! is the location because it’s located in the centre of Prague, 200 m from Charles Square and 500 m from Wenceslas Square. No public transport was necessary during our entire stay!
When we signed up for a walking tour, they picked us up at the hostel and within minutes walking we started the tour which was amazing btw! The Old Town Square with the Astronomical Clock Tower are located 1.9 km from the property. When it comes to Europe, 2km is nothing. We are used to walk all day long!
Sleep quality: the city itself is very active during the night. At least it was our perception. The street where the hostel is located is kinda calm and made my rest easier as you probably know already that I have a lot of trouble to get to sleep.
We shared a room with more 4 other people but they were very respectful regarding silence and not turning the lights on during the night, etc. Believe me, it makes a hell of difference when you’re a bad sleeper like me. Victor slept like a baby, as usual. The noise at the corridor was kinda loud! A lot of people were coming and going during the night, probably after partying and it contributed for insomnia. But after we called their attention, they stopped and I could try to sleep again.
The room: very spacious, as you can see! It helps when you’re changing, packing/unpacking. There’s a locker for each person. You can count on a socket and a lamp for each bed. The bathroom was outside the room but there’s actually one bathroom for each room, basically.
Service: the hostel features an on-site music bar and free WiFi in all areas. Breakfast is served daily for a small fee. We had breakfast once and the other days we decided to venture ourselves in different Cafes.
They have an on site Present café which serves beer, wide selection of wines, alcoholic drinks and great Italian coffee. It also features a vinyl collection and walls decorated with LPs. We loved the decor. Guests can even bring and listen to their own records. An acoustic guitar, a large screen TV with a wide movie selection and a billiard table are also available on site.
There’s laundry, fully equipped kitchen, free hot drinks, ATM on site, free wifi throughout the premises and multilingual reception 24/7.
Cleanliness: indisputably clean! Even the shared kitchen that usually is not quite clean.
Differentials: friendly and hugely helpful staff – recommending places to eat, easy and cheap ways to get to the airport and even helping us get our head around the money! We found a Brazilian working at the hostel and it was very surprising! We chatted a lot! We had a really good time there. Besides, the prices were cheap. So we highly recommend it!
Cost-benefit: cheap but at the same time very well located with fabulous staff. Definitely worth staying!
