Arriving in an unknown city at nightfall can be daunting for anybody. Mojo Inn was located in the backstreets of the New Town and a mere 10-15 minute walk from the main train station. Thankfully, the hostel is clearly prominent with the large signage and large glass windows illuminating the Mojo Cafe. In comparison with the rest of Reznicka street, inside the hostel was a breath of fresh air. The decor was unique, concrete walls purposefully left unpainted, plastered with vinyl sleeves and spotlights tactfully arranged. We were pleasantly greeted upon arrival by the hostel manager who provided us with our room keys and a walking map of the city. The staff were laid back about the payment per night of our rooms, allowing us to pay in our own time in addition to being flexible if needing to extend our stay. Furthermore, we were given a complimentary drink upon arrival which was warmly welcomed after our 12 hour ordeal of travels.
Our room was minimalistic and rather spacious consisting of a large double bed, coat hooks, shelving, cupboards, a mirror and two reading lamps. Our bedroom window looked out onto other surrounding apartments and the double gazing kept the cool air out. The bed itself was extremely comfortable providing us with four nights of wonderful sleep! The bathrooms were adequate yet the shower was perfect: very powerful, hot and clean which is what is needed when hit hard with a hangover. The walls are extremely thin however we were lucky enough to not be disturbed by any other guests nor, to our knowledge, had disturbed any others.
Mojo Inn offered complimentary breakfast each morning from 9am til 12pm. Breakfast consisted of a choice of three cereals (cornflakes, chocolate granola and plain granola), sliced rye bread with a selection of butters and jams as well as tea, coffee and fruit juice. Being the picky veggie vegans we are, we bought our own soya milk which we kept on our windowsill and brought down to breakfast each morning along with green tea and peanut butter! The hostel staff were more than happy to fill up mugs of hot water to make tea and also to brew our couscous for packed lunches on our sightseeing trips.
Once we ventured out into the city of a daytime, we soon realised how ideal our location was. Positioned not far from the Dancing House and the main Wenceslas Square, we were far enough out of the city to enjoy the peace and quiet yet close enough to walk home of a late evening or pop back in the day time. Furthermore, the hostel desk was manned 24/7 meaning accessing our rooms at any time of day was possible in addition to feeling safe. Both my travel buddy and I would highly recommend staying at the Mojo Inn and wouldn’t hesitate on returning!
