Mostly younger budget-oriented travelers stay here such as backpackers, students, young professionals, long term travelers, female travelers, and younger couples. They do have some private rooms, so occasionally more mature budget travelers stay here as well.
Learn the tram routes, as the walk from the hostel is long but the tram can get you into the city center in a hurry.

Larger groups can book larger dorm rooms, too.
The bathrooms at this hostel are very modern and kept very clean. The facilities are all fairly new. They have plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Hair dryers are available at the front desk.

This large hostel has plenty of common space. First is the previously mentioned bar with plenty of standing and seating areas. The restaurant also has a large and spacious seating area. In either of these two spots during the day, guests can hang out, chat, or get on their laptops to catch up on the internet.
A large lounge area is also found at this hostel and has plenty of space, TVs, a pool table, foosball table, and games. This is a great spot to relax.
Yes, this hostel has a pool! It's rare to find a pool at a hostel anywhere in central Europe, but the PLUS Prague has one. The indoor heated pool is a good size for a group of guests to have fun and relax during their stay. Also located in the building are two saunas and an exercise room.
The outdoor areas of the PLUS Prague hostel are quite nice during the summer months. With some outdoor seating you can have a beer or enjoy a meal as you chat with friends. Or, enjoy a game of volleyball on their sand court.
The surrounding neighborhood of Holesovice is more quiet than the old town of Prague, but it still has some nice features. Plenty of bars, restaurants, and shops can be found here, although it is much more focused on the locals than on tourists. The river and several parks are also close by.
The tram is just a block from the hostel, and it can take you into old town in about 10 minutes. Also nearby is a metro station that can take you into the old town or out into other neighborhoods fairly quickly.
With plenty of activities, the Plus Prague hostel will make sure that you enjoy meeting the other guests just as much as experiencing Prague. With various tours, pub crawls, and on site activities such as happy hours and art exhibits, you'll have plenty to do.

Also, you can find free Wi-Fi, key-card access, bike rental, plenty of laundry machines, luggage storage, TVs, and tour booking. One thing they are lacking is a self-catering kitchen, though.
The staff is professional and works hard to keep the hostel clean and well organized.
Other than the location not being in the city center, the most common complaint here is that the hostel charges a small fee to use the gym.
