Very centrally located in Prague with great access to tram lines. Very friendly and helpful staff. Value for money breakfast and a common area always live with some activity or another! And with the central location, there are so many options for food / site seeing around!

The hostel itself is based in an old building - looks to be soviet era. The vibe is great and the location to the town center is amazing - about 10-15 mins walk but it's in a good area. There is a great jazz cafe around and a small convenience store right downstairs, so you can pick up snacks/drinks etc....

The location is great as it was easy to get to from the train station and one could easily walk to anywhere in the heart of the city. The employees...

Startiing from the position, i think that's one of the best solution in prague. Staff is very nice and everything is close to you. Spending only 4 euro you can have a good breakfast with eggs, wusterl, yougurt, milk, tea, coffee, more and more. It is also a good solution because they organize lots of event and city tour for...

Advantages: Good Location. 5 minutes walk from the tube and very close to the city centre. Disadvantages: WiFi didn'twork properly in the rooms. Noisy. At night you could hear absolutely everything from another room (when they were having a shower, getting in to their rooms, slamming doors, running, etc.etc.) The receptionist wasn´t very kind of changing my room when it...

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
