We were 6 guys staying in a 5 person room. Very comfortable beds, neatly made when we arrived, towels and bed linen included. Private and spacious bedroom facing the street but there was no noise at all even at night though a very packed street was right outside. High ceiling. Extraordinarily high quality for hostel private rooms. Everything spick and... More

It would be normal to be noisy if the room is besides the touristy street, but the noise from reception was unbearable. There was even a note to observe silence between 10pm to 4am but the receptionist didn't do something. The internet was almost non-existent inside the room, we had to be in the reception area. They also told us... More

The hostel has the best location, the room was big enough and very clean only problem was internet!! It didn't work in the room so, book one near reception this is where you can get connection. Oh and because it is very central it gets a bit noisy if you are a person who can not sleep in the noise... More

Honestly for the price it could've been a lot better! Receptionists were okay upon arrival, weren't particularly helpful or friendly! But perhaps aren't being paid enough for the long hours they are doing! (12 hour shifts from what I could gather!) Hostel wasn't that tidy or clean. At one point during our stay they'd overbooked so there was a mattress... More

I booked this hostel because of its excellent location and practical price considering it is so near Charles bridge and the Old Town. The linen provided were clean. For breakfast, you can pay for it in addition to the rent. It's an excellent place. It will be even perfect if the staff be be more friendly next time. ;)

Unclean and disappointing hostel. Ended up leaving at half 8 in the evening to find a new place for the night. There was chewing gum stuck to the beds and writing covering the bunk beds. Overall we were left extremely disappointed in this hostel and looked for our money back in order to pay for a new hostel.

For the very low price we paid I had very low expectations, however the hostel was better than I expected. The hostel is in an incredible location, just a few minutes from Charles Bridge and Old Town Square (astronomical clock). Both of which I recommend. However it did get loud at night. The lady who checked us in was very... More

I booked my room via Agoda (and paid for it in advance) When I came in, I was told at the reception that the room hasn't been paid for. I was a bit surprised but after a few minutes I decided to just pay for it again (I was tired then and I thought that maybe I haven't actually paid... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

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.
