Location Advantages of Mosaic House
Mosaic House Prague is located right in the charmingly cool Nové Město (New Town), very near to the Old Town. There's a tram stop just around the corner, where you can catch a tram to whisk you away to any corner of the city you'd like to visit. Their website has a handy map showing you the best stuff to do around the hostel, including sights to see, places to eat and drink, and parks to explore. The location of Mosaic House Prague is in fact that great, we included 2 secret tips of our Geeky Guide right next to the hostel!
Good to know: The old town of Prague is beautiful, no doubt! We personally do not think that staying in the old town is a top choice. The price for everything are higher, and it has a tourism flair rather than authentic Prague experience. We think staying in the New Town is the better and more local option!

#1 in this list is of course: the only 5 Star Hostel!
This 5 Star Hostel also offers its own restaurant that’s buzzing with guests, a fantastic experienced team, and a whole lot of events going on such as Karaoke, Concerts and more at the mentioned stage.
Of course, one of the big factors that comes into play when you choose a hostel is its location, right?!
Mosaic House is in a great spot right in the center of the New Town in Prague.
It’s in the midst of a huge choice of enticing restaurants, cafés, and bars.
We personally checked them out (we take our research very seriously!) and have the results of our careful investigation.
Let’s dive in and find out why Mosaic House is our top pick for a hostel in Prague.
1. Eco Pioneers: 0% Emissions, for real!
The sustainability of a hostel is one criteria to become a 5 Star Hostel.
It’s not often that a hostel can boast that it’s the first place in its entire country to do something, but the 5 Star Hostel in Prague can!
Their big emphasis on sustainability has been seriously groundbreaking in the Czech Republic.
Here are a just a few of the wonderful records they’ve earned:
The first water recycling system in the Czech Republic.
The first hostel in the Czech Republic that uses 100% renewable energy.
The first hostel in the Czech Republic to receive the BREEAM In-Use “Excellent” certification.
The second grey water system including heat recuperation in the entire world.
(FYI, “grey water” refers to waste water from anywhere but the toilet. Think waste water from sinks, showers, washing machines, etc.)
Mosaic House Prague is filled with all sorts of passive and active ways to be kind of the earth, from energy saving light bulbs and solar panels on the roof.
They’ve even got an interactive gallery with videos, and graphs about how much energy they save.
Nerdy and Geeky – we love that!
2. Modern Design Hostel Among Old World Charm
Prague’s old world charm draws flocks of visitors every year.
But what lots of tourists may not know about the city is that its design scene is seriously thriving right now.
And Mosaic Hostel is all about design and art.
It’s built in a boxy structure that dates back to the 1930s.
When the hostel was created the architects gave it a fresh new feel with elegant new spaces.
They also restored the original theater and stained glass, both of which you can spot in the La Loca MUSIC BAR & LOUNGE.
Each one of the private rooms has a unique touch of something artsy, like a special painting, a quirky photograph, or a stylish wall decor.
Don’t miss the chance to test out the very chic cup chairs either!
The dorms are a bit more simple in style but still modern and chic. It’s not pretentious – it’s just cool. You get the mix of hotel-level comfort with the relaxed vibes of a hostel.
We wrote up a full article to let you know what you’ve to consider.
3. Wait – There’s a Stage Too? Uniqueness
So you know how we were saying that this isn’t your average hostel? Well, how many hostels can you think of that come with their very own stage?
The experienced team are all about letting their guests enjoy the hostel 100%, and to help that happen they make a big effort to put on all sorts of unique events (some which take advantage of their awesome stage).
Their approach is proof that there’s no need for compromise between a design hostel and having fun.
The stage area can hold up to 250 people, so naturally, the space is used for big parties and cool concerts.
There’s live entertainment every night until 2 a.m. in La Loca MUSIC BAR & LOUNGE.
Ask the staff what’s on!
That’s not to say it’s all party all the time here though. There are plenty of spots to relax and enjoy the hostel.
Did we mention its gorgeous view to Prague’s castle?
Some of the private rooms and the apartments have this stunning view.
There are over 60 people working at Mosaic House from 14 different countries, who range in age from 18 to 60+.
While the staff who work at Mosaic House might be totally different from each other, they’re united in two common goals:
They love Prague and they’re enthusiastic about helping you love it, too!
While you’re staying here, do ask the staff for their own tips about what to do in the city. They’ve got some excellent secret hints to help you enjoy the city.
They may also invite you along to one of their many social events.
The staff love to go out together, including karaoke sessions, quiz nights, and retro video disco parties!
They will also be sure to help you with anything you need during your stay, including finding a cool route to go running, figuring out how to get to a pharmacy, or discovering the best local eats.
