You don't go to city centre hostels expecting daily bed turn downs and luxury accommodation but hostel homer exceeded my expectations at every turn. The single beds in our 5 bed dorm were very comfy and I slept well every night. The communal spaces were big, modern kitchen facilities. If I had to find a fault it was for lack... More

I stayed for a week in the female dorm room, which had it's own kitchen. The refrigerator wasn't working properly, so we stored everything in the freezer. The room overlooked a restaurant, so it was a bit noisy in the evening, I loved the bathroom. There was a huge shower and a large ledge to put your gear. The room... More

Don't normally write reviews but I felt this place deserved one. If you're looking for rude staff,bed bugs and people bringing their dogs with fleas then this is the ideal place for you.

Dear James, somebody who stayed before in the room brought the bed bugs in the luggage. Immediatelly we called company and sprayed the room, we changed wooden beds for iron in the whole hostel. It helped a lot and hostel is clean and safe again. But I have to oppose you: there wasn´t 500bed bugs (you found one or two)... More

Mostly clean. Especially the bathrooms were spotless. The common area and kitchen were very modern. We didn't like that they don't make the bed for you as most of the people in our 12 person dorm were too lazy to make the bed and were sleeping directly on the mattress and uncovered pillows which was pretty gross. It could also... More

Pro's and cons at this hostel. Pro's: they have air conditioning, it is quite cheap, 50m from Old Town Square, bathrooms are almost hotel-like, there is a fridge and kitchen for your use, and it is quite clean and modern. Cons: the major problem here is that the staff on hand don't know a damn thing about Prague. Multiple times... More

Dear Michael, thank you for your review. Our staff always do the best they can. And of course, they don´t know everything - it´s impossible. She recommended you to use google maps, because it´s easy and helpfull. It was meant good. I´m glad you found positive things as well. Alexandra Hostel HOMER More

Spacious rooms, located 1 minute from Old Town Square which is good. Clean and hygienic rooms. Get to meet a lot of like-minded travelers along the way. Room fares are easy on the pocket. I did not encounter and problems during my stay here.

The most spacious hostel I have ever stayed in. Really private with loads of room to lounge and hang out. In an ideal location also. Has every amenity you could possibly desire and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Will 100% be staying here when I return to Prague.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
