It’s raining men in Prague. Some of the men even have no trousers on. It’s all very eye-catching in Mosaic House. It’s not some kind of strip club though – in fact quite the opposite. It’s a beautifully edgy pad set in a stunning building full of preserved mosaics. It’s also an eco warrior of a hostel that is unbelievably affordable.
Welcome to your home away from home. Before you even step inside it is hard not to be impressed. A canopy of gigantic mushrooms will have you feeling like you’re Alice in Wonderland.
Stepping inside you’ll be transported to a retro land when you sight the mosaic floor.
It’s only temporarily though, as rather unexpectedly, the unusual staff members will whisk you fast into the future.
Within the first five minutes of my visit it was clear that this hostel was very different to the ones I had experienced all those years ago. It was actually stylish and felt more like a hotel.
Whilst Mosaic House offers shared rooms (there is one sixteen bed room if you’re feeling friendly, or you can opt for a smaller shared room right down to just four beds), my sister and I went for one of the private rooms (a classic double) for just the two of us. Thankfully the bed was quite spacious and we each had our own covers – I’m a terrible duvet hogger.
The room was clean, spacious and modern. Really modern. Since when did hostel rooms get electronic blackout blinds, rain dance showers and flat screen TVs? The classic double rooms also come with an iPod dock (we may or may not have danced around the room to trashy pop music) and a minibar/fridge (which we may or may not have demolished). The price tag for this kind of room is outrageous though. From 40Euros is just so cheap!
Mosaic House is also home to La Loca Music Bar and Lounge, so you can have a party without really having to stray that far.
Each day of the week offers a different event/theme – we secretly enjoyed the cheesy 80s/90s night. The menu of cocktails, cheap beers, wines and spirits may have had something to do with it.
If you don’t want to join in with the fun, I’d suggest you request one of the upper floor rooms so you can get some peaceful shut eye. We stayed on the fifth floor which was fine (apart from one early morning when someone was hoovering).
If you can, why not head straight up to the Pent House? Yes, I said Pent House. I didn’t get to see this bad boy in real life, but the views and pics on the website look amazing.
Overall, my stay in Mosaic House was great. The free wifi was better than a lot of hotels I’ve stayed in and I loved the quirky art. From the airport it was easy to get to using public transport (119 bus as per my guide, then the green line metro to Mustek, then the yellow line metro to Karlovo Namesti, followed by a five minute walk).
If you want eco friendly, modern and affordable accommodation in Prague, then this is for you. X
I was a guest of Mosaic House for one night of my two night stay.
