We’re one of the few hostels located right in historical centre of Prague!

We’re in Old Town next to Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock. Why spend money for public transport or taxi?! You can go from a club/bar directly to your bed - no taxi needed!

Hostelworld.com customers have made us a top-rated hostel in 2008 and 2009. We’ve also been recommended by Le Guide Michelin - Green Guides, Rick Steve's Guide, Let’s Go and USA Today Travel and we received the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2010.

We have rooms with two-to-eight beds as well as a suite for up to five guests with a private bath. Rooms include free bed linen, towels and soap as well as free lockers in each dormitory. Our showers are hot 24hrs a day.

Our hostel offers free internet, free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, free luggage storage and safety deposit boxes, free use of our iron and hair dryer, plus more. We’ve also got free maps of Prague and free tours!

Our facilities include a fully equipped kitchen with dining hall and a lounge with satellite TV, music, DVD player and in-house DVD rental.

The pub crawl picks up at our hostel every night. We’ve negotiated discounts to some of the must-see places in Prague like the Museum of Communism, Bohemian Bagel, Sandeman’s Prague Tours and more...so just save your money with us!

We’re just one minutes’ walk from Kotva department store, two minutes from Old Town Square and five minutes from the Jewish Quarter and Wenceslaus Square. It’s only a minutes’ walk from here to Namesti Republiky, where you can find the tram connection, metro line B, the airport shuttle and Palladium shopping mall. Ten minutes from here is the main railway station (Hlavni nadrazi), Masaryk Station (Masarykovo nadrazi) and bus station Florenc.

The entire hostel is equipped with a modern fire alarm system with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers on every floor as well as a video monitoring system in the entrance area and each floor’s common areas.

This is a non-smoking hostel.

Are we fully booked or you can’t find the right room type in this hostel? Then try our sister hostel, Prague Square Hostel, another top-located hostel here on Hostelworld. It’s just 200 steps from Old Town Square.
Prices are per person per night.
