We stayed at Hostel Downtown over New Years and had the most amazing time. The staff we're phenomenal and the facilities were impeccable. Special mention to Brent; he was welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! I'd recommend everyone to stay at Downtown Hostel during your time in Prague. You won't be disappointed!

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.
