Chili Hostel Reviews

Bedbugs, thieves, drug addicts

Bedbug alert! I stayed in 8-people mixed dorm. This hostel is for drug addicts and creepy people. Hostel security is worst. Hostel staff is not able to control hooligans. Room was smelly, bedsheets were not changed but they gave cover for blanket and pillow. Bedsheets had blood stains. There are very small lockers in room. Hostel is infected with bedbugs. Security is so bad that anyone could come and sleep in your room. Guys in our room were sleeping naked, hostel is not recommended for women. I have to post the review here because another booking site refused to publish it.

One star cause minus-five isn't optional

Seriously look at the monitors in their pictures and tell me that's 2011. These pictures must be decades old cause the place is now rundown and in ruins. Plus riddled with bedbugs.

Everything is fine

just one thing i don't like -- they only accept kronas, not any other currency. while doing online booking it mentioned to pay in euros.

Police officer -- frequent thefts and muggings

I stayed at chili for a week in september 2014. Very bad experience, even a police officer encouraged me to share my displeasure. Somebody, who must have had a key to my single room, stole my valuables. The police said that things like that happen frequently at chili. The stuff wasn't interested at all. So, if you stay there, ALWAYS take your stuff with you! Beside of that the beds are horrible, rooms are dirty, wifi is not working ... Might be a good place to meet other travelers, but the price for that can be high!

Chili Hostel is a very fun party hostel. There are always parties going on somewhere in the hostel and you are guaranteed not to be bored.

The Location

The hostel is located in a neighbourhood around the city centre. The hostel is ten minutes away on foot from the Metro station, and fifteen minutes away from the city centre. But it is a bit tricky to walk from the Metro to the hostel; you dont want to be on those small inside lanes at night. Both bus stations (Florenc and Dejvicka) and the secondary train station are within three metro stations away without changing, and the main train station is four metro stations away with one change. You can always find bars and places for a beer in the region. Stores, a bakery, and restaurants are easy to find; and near the Metro station you can find a supermarket that closes at 9 p.m.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The whole building is the hostel, and each apartment of the building is five dorm rooms. Dorm rooms are spacious; it is actually two rooms connected together. In-room lockers are provided but bring your own padlock (or borrow it at the reception with a deposit) -- the locker size is one standard luggage. There are separate keys for the apartment door and the dorm room door. There is only one bathroom for five dorm rooms, so expect a long queue for shower in the morning. There are two showers in the bathroom but without partition in between so there is practically one. There are no facilities to hang clothes or put other things, and the floor gets wet easily, but you can borrow a hair dryer at the reception with a small deposit and another two bathrooms at the ground floor (if you dont mind walking).

Common Spaces

There are plenty of common space in the hostel, excellent places to meet people. You have the computer area with enough computers, and the kitchen area. You can also hang out at the living room and dining room of the apartment -- there is nothing there, a large, empty free space.


This hostel is a good place to meet people and the environment is pretty good. The reception can help you with anything you need, they have a printing service, laundry, snooker table, washing machine (you will need to pay for them -- except you can get cups of free coffee). And for your information, if you forgot to change some Czech koruna, they accept the Euro and the rate is not too bad if you pay in Euros for your room.

Chili Hostel Reviews from the Web

The location is completely fine and accessible to the city center. The rooms are a bit dirty and I couldn't feel safe inside although nothing bad happened to me. The wifi was on and off. The toilets and bathroom were shared and really dirty without liquid soap and tissue. It's ok for one night budget stay but not more.


Upon booking in for a second night my husband handed Eric 1000 czech koruna and was charged 190 but only handed back 310 czech koruna, we though this was deposit but upon arriving on the Friday 17th Sept found Eric to be on holidays, no refund of the 500 czech koruna and I had to pay another 190 czech koruna for the night. So no we could have afforded a hotel at these rates.


pro: close to city/cheap/friendly people at reception/wifi

con: dirty/beds are not great/a lot of people per shower (up to 20:1)/cleaning personell was stealing/saw some insects

advice: take your valueable stuff to the reception, it'll be safe there


We got bedbug biten.

So we just stayed 1 night.

We want money back and doctor's bill, medicines too.


Bathrooms were dirty, beds weren't great. Staff was helpful, and since it is cheap you pretty much get what you pay for.


They have bed bugs. I was bitten many times during my stay. If you can afford a cleaner hostel i would suggest you stay away from chili hostel


We, a Family of 4 spent 3 nights in here.

private room,

good pubs in the vicinity

close to the train station

great staff 2 young (not czech) ladies ( helpful, cheerful etc)


Problem at reception.

Problem of purity.

Czech Republic

Lavatory, toillets, shower VERY VERY dirty!!!!


Liked: It was the cheapest option Didn't like: Late check-in,


Extremely poor beds

Only WiFi at the check-in place and even there really slow.

Worst of all, they are very strict with Soo many little stupid rules. And charge you extra for everything very quickly


Liked: The location was the only thing I liked about this hostel. Didn't like: The staff was really bitchy. I had to wait around 2 hours for the check in. There are a lot of problems and others had waited more. Also, there is no Wi-Fi in the rooms, only in the common area. The beds are terrible. You would sleep better on a bench in park. And almost everyone who stayed there was a loser. Oh, yeah, the sheets are dirty and smelly.


you get what you pay for. not more, not less.


I recommand it. Good price , good location ( in the center of Prague ) and friendly staff

Czech Republic



Except for the fact that I had to wait more than 30 minutes at the reception while checking myself in, the stay was pretty good.


Hostel have not been informed about the reservation

Czech Republic

Bed bugs

Really friendly staff, nice room but the bathroom was horrible.
