Charged £75 for "noise"
Dont know where to start with this hostel. Upon walking into the corridor I was greeted by an awful mixture of smells (feet, body odour, and vomit) which was then heightened when I walked into my airless, suffocating room. After staying here for three nights, I had never been happier to leave a place in my life. However this happiness did not last long. When checking out they decided that we should be charged 2000 czech koruna (75) for "making noise" past 10pm. I almost laughed in their face, the hostel was so revolting I spent as little time as possible in it so I do not know when this noise was being made. As I was disputing this allegation there was another group beside me also being fined. This hostel is a scam trying to take money off people for a human right of speech. Do not waste your time.
I spent three days in Prague and spent 2 nights at this hostel. Overall, it was pretty clean, comfortable, and in a pretty central location.The LocationIf taking train in and out of Prague, the hostel is conveniently located (just a ~20 min walk) from the main train station. The hostel is off a square that had a smaller Christmas market, although a tour guide suggested we avoid this square after dark. The hostel is located on the other side of Old Town from Prague Castle. Prague, especially Old Town, is very walkable so the hostel is in a good location. Rooms and BathroomsThe eight person dorm is pretty standard. There are key cards for entry in and out of the hostel as well as to each of the rooms, rather than the traditional metal keys. The rooms have bunk beds, and some of the top bunks have covered power outlets so plugs need to be shared with the person below. Unfortunately, those plugs are against the frame of the bed. The bed itself is comfortable, the sheets are clean, and we have two pillows per bed. There is room under the bed to store backpacks and bags. There are two bathrooms attached to the room - very clean so no complaints there.Common SpacesThe kitchen is pretty small - just a sink and a hot water maker and toaster with some cabinets - it is more of a closet. The common area is between the entrance of the floor and many of the rooms to promote interaction. There is a row of tables plus a couch and a mattress in a long hallway where people hung out at night. It is a good social environment to meet other people. A number of people also hang out in the lobby for stronger wifi. The only slight inconvenience is that the reception desk (tea refills, buying beer) is downstairs and two doors over so it is a bit of a walk from the common area. The hostel also offers walking tours and live music nights.SummaryWhile Hostel Ananas is not located right in Old Town, it is just a short walk from Old Town Square. The facilities are bare but clean, the social environment is good, the staff is helpful, and there are activities for every type of traveler.
