Very accommodating , down to earth staff and awesome atmosphere. All your options in Prague sorted and you can't go wrong here. As everyone else has said : Brent will look after you with personalized meals ; and all the staff are so willing to help in any way. No B.S just great times and good atmosphere.

I have stayed in many hostels. As for the people who work there, grand! Brent was so accommodating, funny and...

This hostel had guitars and a piano which is essential for me! But the real benefit of staying here is the staff. Brent will always go out of his way to show any of the guests a great time. Thanks for showing me my favourite bar! Mariana gave us salsa lessons which was really fun. Kaja was very helpful and...

Hostel downtown completely changed my view on hostel holidays! Amazing warm and friendly atmosphere and extremely clean. The staff though were by far the icing on the cake. I'd like to mention Brent, Bernice,Aisling and michiel who really made our stay memorable. Between the events, food and just general friendliness they sealed the deal! Will definitely return in the future.

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.
