Activities, Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Personal social experience
The only people that go to the 5 story club in Prague are foreigners, so don't go there. Don't eat by Prasky Hrad if you want to have money when you leave. It's very expensive. Go to JJ's pub!! owned by an amazing guy who is from Ireland, but its a local Czech spot.
Type of housing: It was a dorm, but it was about 15 min from school
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
It would probably be cleaner.

The people that worked there were rude and they barely spoke English. They only changed my sheets once in 5 weeks...and it was 100 degrees EVERY DAY so my sheets were disgusting. There was no Air conditioning and leaving the windows open at night meant the ceiling was coated in bugs. It was livable, but if you have the choice and the money I would recommend not staying at komenskeho kolej.
They are in English, but taught my native Czech professors so there english is rough and it can become a bit boring. The Art and Architecture class was unbearable. The czech language class was alright and my teacher could communicate well.

We rarely saw other international students. I got to speak Czech quite a bit, although in class they taught us grammer, which is pretty useless in 5 weeks. I would have liked to learn more phrases and useful things to say.
