  • I did not feel safe here. Upon arrival, numerous people were warning me with tales of people being robbed. Still, I gave it a go. As a solo traveler, there wasn't much activity for solo people and the mixed dorms were filled with men only (scary when you're the only woman but hey, you can't predict these things). I don't like that you have to pay for everything as well, including coffee. I switched hostels as soon. Overall: okay.

  • Pro Staff is very nice! Right by shopping area and the Charles Bridge and the Prague Castle among other POIs. Easy to access from main train station Rooms are a bit sparse but clean and well lit Facilities work well and are clean, too. The combination kitchen and living space seems very conducive to socializing if that's something you like. Con Can be a bit noisy Windows don't have screens so in the summer, bugs can be a problem.

  • Hostel Downtown had a good mix of atmosphere between fun upbeat socializing at night and a calmer/quieter mood during the day. Very easy to both meet people and get a night's sleep or a good nap. The staff runs fun activities pretty much everyday that are a great way to meet people and see the city.

  • Great hostel which made my holiday in Prague a fantastic one. Friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast good value. Room very comfortable. Great location - walking distance to all the tourist spots, good transport on the doorstep (tram), subway a quick walk away. Would recommend booking in to see shows at the Opera House and Theatre, which are close by. The staff also organised a couple of taxi rides, which saved me getting ripped off by the drivers. Would stay here again.

  • Well equipped kitchen, nice atmosphere). Each day some interesting events are being organized. Definitely, your staying in this hostel won't be boring, if you don't divide yourself off the people. But it still be a problem: in April it's not really warm, but general heating system is off, so in the room it's quite cool - general problem in the hostel. It should be better to provide additional heater in these cases.
