What's not to say about this wonderful place that hasn't already been said?!! Quite simply I just feel at home here. The staff are all just so brillianbt and welcoming and it's infectious.

Wow, this place is awesome. I met some of the most interesting people I've ever met traveling, probably due to the large common area and easy access to cheap beer at the store right next door. All of the staff were super nice and helpful, from personally showing me my room to arranging a cab for me to get to...

And unbelievable great review!! Thousand times thank you for taking time to write these words. It is a great reward for all our hard-working (and sometimes "dying" from exhaustion) night receptionists and other night birds to be called simpatico in the middle of the night and being described so nicely as you did :-) Thanks, Sasha!! Regards, Sára

Great Hostel, clean, well connected, only a few minutes walking from the old town. They always organize activities for integration, so it's easy to meet people. Don't miss the Gil's puppet show! It's amazing! Brent it's the coolest guy you'll find in Prague! Take the castle tour with him, 100 per cent fun guaranteed!!

Oh dear Lea, I know what you mean - and anyone joining our Thursday evening event "Downtown has a talent" soon discovers, too - Gil really does have a talent! :-) Brent is one of the coolest and the warmest at the same time and we very much appreciate your kind words said about them and our hostel.

Located very close to city centre, downtown hostel is 20 mins walk from The railway station. Having to spend a night in a mixed genders room, I can assure you safety. Beds are comfortable and they provide a warm blanket. For a hostel, the environment is clean they provide dryer and iron for free :) They have a cute kitchen,...

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay in Hostel Downtown. It was reasonably priced, clean and well located. The staff were very friendly and the tours/activities were great. I would recommend it to anyone traveling Prague on a budget!

What do you want out of hostels? When I choose a hostel instead of a hotel, I hope for friendly vibes, fun activities, opportunities to hang out with new friends. Hostel downtown has all of that. This hostel may not be the largest or the most modern but it is fantastic for the traveler who wants to connect. The staff...

Our room was bleak and depressing (no murals like the photos on their website!), with one small window looking into an airshaft. There was no maid service. When I asked about it (on day 3 of our visit) at the front desk, I was told I had to request it. I said that would be great, as we were out...

Dear Joan, we apologize for any inconvenient. Your feedback is useful and I am happy to say that some improvements are already in progress :-) The whole sixth floor is being reconstructed room by room with new colours and wallpapers, so soon enough 607 will be a different story. However, had you come to the reception to request a different...

This has gotta be the best hostel I've stayed in ever!! Came here in a group of 6 and was surprised that the hostel had upgraded us to a 6 bed mixed dorm despite having prebooked and paid lesser for an 8 bed mixed dorm. Thus we had a room all to ourselves! Great hospitality, extremely friendly staffs, perfect location,...

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.
