If you plan to travel to Prague (which you definitely should!) Hostel One Home is without a doubt your absolute best choice for a place to stay. Their reputation more than speaks for itself. With a rating of 9.8 on Hostelworld and 96% on TripAdvisor it’s not just one of the best hostels in Prague (in my opinion, THE best), but simply one of the best. Period.
What makes Hostel One Home great?
- Location: While Hostel One Home isn’t located in the very heart of Prague, everything worth seeing is within walking distance. It is also just minutes away from the train station Hlavni Nadrazi which makes excursion to sights outside of Prague a breeze. Why not plan a day trip to beautiful Kutná Hora? The main attraction of this gorgeous little village is the Sedlec Ossuary, a chapel that’s supposed to contain the skeletons of more than 40000 people. I mean, would you want to miss a chandelier made of bones?
- Rooms: The rooms of Hostel One Home have everything a traveler could wish for: they are spacious, the beds are comfortable (and, most importantly, they don’t squeak!) and there are lockers for your valuables. I personally loved the little personal shelves by each bed. I even had a socket right next to it, which means I could comfortably charge my phone without having to worry about someone crushing it in the middle of the night. Another big plus, the kitchen is located on a different floor! So when all the party goers come home after a crazy night out and crave that late-night snack, they won’t disturb your peaceful slumber. Or, well, YOU won’t disturb anyone, because you should definitely experience Prague’s famed nightlife.
- Staff: The staff at Hostel One Home is top-notch. They will make sure, you enjoy every second of your stay, day and night. As soon as you cross the threshold, they will tend to your every need and make you feel right at home (they even carried my embarrassingly heavy bag up to my room!). They tell you were to get the best goulash (friends don’t let friends miss out on mouth-watering goulash!), how to find your way around Prague and they even take care of your laundry. Each night, they organize games and, later on when everyone’s ready (which ever way…), they take you to the best clubs and bars in town. With their enthusiasm and energy, they will turn the plainest Jane into a sparkling dancing queen.
What makes Hostel One Home the best?
Free dinners! Many hostels have comfy rooms, fun activities and great locations but how many do you know that offer a free dinner every night? It really is free, there are no hidden fees and no, it’s not just an appetizer (and yes, they cater for vegetarians as well). The food is delicious and because each night a different member of staff prepares the meal, you’ll experience some real international cuisine. It’s never been so easy to meet fellow travelers and make plans for the following day as when everyone sits at the same table enjoying their scrumptious, free dinners.
