A short introduction to hostel Orange in Prague and it’s location

Hostel orange is located on the Wenceslas square, in Prague, in Czech-Republic. The location of this hostel is very good. It is located very close to the old town and from there, you can walk to all the important city sights. The Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, and the Astronomical Clock are all within walking distance. This prime location means that you can make the most of your time in Prague without spending hours on public transport. The only thing that could be improved is the recognition of the hostel from outside. We had some problems finding the hostel. When standing in front of it, we still did not notice the hostel entrance. It is located in a small entry of a restaurant. This was a pity. The central train- and bus station is on walking distance from it.

Rooms – comfortable and well-maintaned

Hostel Orange Prague offers a variety of accommodation options to suit different traveler preferences. Whether you’re a solo backpacker, a couple, or part of a larger group, this hostel has you covered. The hostel has eight different kind of rooms; 16 bed mixed dorm, 12 bed mixed dorm, 10 bed mixed dorm, 8 bed mixed dorm, 6 bed mixed dorm, 4 bed mixed dorm, double private room, or twin private room.

During my stay, I booked a 6-bed mixed dorm with 5 friends. The room was clean, but there were still some belongings (clothes, towels, and shoes) from previous guests. This was a bit weird. The beds were comfortable and the linen were clean though. The room also had six massive personal lockers. My entire backpack could fit in the locker. This was great!! There was also very good WiFi connection in the room and we could open a window. This was nice! The beds were comfortable and the room was well-maintained, providing a peaceful retreat after a day of exploring the city. Overall, I was satisfied with the room, I only missed a mirror, table and seats in the room.

Bathroom – clean and hot showers

My visits to the bathroom were not love-hate stories. The bathrooms were quite clean and the showers were always hot! This actually surprised me, but a good surprise though! Every floor had a separate toilet and a bathroom with shower and toilet. This was nice. We also got free towels during our stay.

Kitchen and lounge – great atmosphere and well-equipped

During our stay, we got free breakfast! This was great. It was simple, but good breakfast. Some white bread, jam, meat, cheese, boiled eggs, milk, juice, and thee. Enough for a good start of the day!

The kitchen was well equipped. There were many pans, plates, cups, spices, and even some pasta or rice which we could use. We used the kitchen three times to cook dinner. Most of the time we were alone and could cook without waiting. Great!

There was a comfortable couch and two tables with some chairs in the kitchen (also the living room). Sometimes during breakfast, it was a bit too crowded and not everybody could sit down. During the day and evening it was fine though. I guess it also had to do with the fact that I stayed during the holiday season.

The social atmosphere was great. This hostel provides ample opportunities for socializing. The common areas, including the lounge and the kitchen are great places to strike up a conversation with fellow travelers. There are often events and activities organized by the hostel staff, making it easy to connect with other guests.

Reception, staff and luggage room

The staff of the reception was really friendly. They provided us with a lot of useful information about the city. You can also buy some beers and other handy things at the reception. The availability of the luggage room was nice. On our check-out day, we had to take a night bus to Warsaw. We could leave our backpacks in the luggage rooms for free and still use the kitchen and living room during the entire day and evening. This was very hospitable and great service!

Budget-friendly prices

Prague is generally considered a budget-friendly destination and Hostel Orange Prague fits right into that paradigm. It offers excellent value for money, particularly given its prime location. The affordability of this hostel means you can allocate more of your budget to exploring the city and enjoying its rich culinary scene.

Safety and cleanliness

In the current travel climate, safety and cleanliness have become even more important factors when choosing accommodation. Hostel Orange Prague takes both of these aspects seriously. The hostel maintains high levels of cleanliness, ensuring that guests can enjoy a comfortable and hygienic stay.

    The common room looks so cozy and you can never go wrong with free breakfast 😀 I also LOVE the idea of a communal kitchen where the guests can cook at anytime. Not sure of the dorm room setup though, I realized I need the comforts of a good hotel to recharge for the night!

    • Girlswanderlust

      Yes, cook together and try new dishes from all over the world if you are lucky! =) I understand about the dorm.. we all have different needs and if you really have to recharge during the night, a hotel might indeed be a better option! 😉

    This does seem like a hostel. It’s great that you were able to book a room with 5 friends. And it is a bonus that the bathrooms were clean and that the property is clean in general. I stayed at a hostel in Zurich where I had to share a room with 3 teenage boys (I am an adult woman) and there was always an old man in the kitchen wearing nothing but panties. (He was a guest, not the owner at least.) This sounds much better than that.

    • Girlswanderlust

      Hahaha your hostel experience in Zurich sounds pretty funny now, but I can image that it wasn’t at that time. You have to be lucky when booking a hostel and hope to get some nice roommates and a clean place to stay. Usually I book a ladies only dorm. I experienced those better than the shared ones 😉

    The Orange Hostel looks clean and tidy. As you mention, the Bathrooms are also clean, which is very important and means a lot. The fact that the hostel is centrally located and within walking distance of major city sights is definitely a great advantage. Though we do not usually stay in hostels, this one looks promising.

  • Cori Carl

    What a great overview! It’s so hard to really get a feel for a place before you get there. I really like knowing what to expect. This looks nicer than the hostel I stayed in when I was in Prague!

  • Danni

    I stayed via AirBnB in Prague, but this hostel would be a good option too- a roof terrace is always fun but I might struggle to get all my bags up those stairs. Happy to read that the bathroom was clean- that’s crucial. A lot of hostels don’t give free towels or even sheets, too, everything can cost extra.
