The MadHouse Prague Prague Hostel Review and Information

I walked into the Madhouse and immediately felt at home. I was welcomed by Billy, an absolute legend. I made so many friends from the first night and that is all owed to the atmosphere of the place. I had so much fun that I was actually sad to leave. I hope to return one day. Thanks to the entire Madhouse Team. You're all beautiful souls. - South African Guy
