I've read several similar posts , so please forgive me if it seems like I'm repeating the same question. I'll be travelling alone to Prague for eight days at the end of March. For convenience, I'd like to stay in Old Town. I've never stayed at a Hostel, but the idea of meeting lot's of new people to hang out with and share travel information with is very appealing as is saving money over a hotel room. Sharing a bathroom doesn't seem like that big of a deal. I see many Hostels offer single rooms, so I guess if I'm willing to pay more I'll be able to have some of privacy. But I am concerned about noise. I enjoy a bit of the night life as much as anyone, but when I'm ready to sleep I need some piece and quiet. I'm also a bit concerned about sanitation, security and having my posessions stolen. I guess you could say I'm looking for the social opportunities of a hostel with the privacy, security and relative peace and quiet of a hotel room. Do you have any suggestions?
