I stayed in downtown hostel for 2 nights during my stay in Prague. I had a great time there - very nice staff, many opportunities and very interesting people around. Especially the tour with Gil Conti was great. We walked with him for about 2 hours to more or less touristic places and got to know a lot about Prague... More

We had an amazing time here! This place is in an absolutely perfect location and the rooms are really spacious. We had out own ensuite and the kitchen was very well equipped- perfect for our stay! The wifi sometimes didn't work, but it wasn't much of a problem for us! We would thoroughly recommend this place!!

Had a great stay at the Hostel Downtown. The facilities were clean and the staff was very helpful. Gil, the walking tour guide, did a good job of introducing us to the city and giving recommendations for food and drink. The beds were not very comfortable, but for the price it was acceptable. Also, the location is very convenient. This... More

I went to Prague expecting very little.I ended up falling in love with it. I arrived at the hostel too early before my room was ready so I decided to go on the walking tour with Mirek And Sanka. What a good idea. Mirek gave a wonderful history lesson. He wasn't just giving off dates and places, he truelytruly wanted... More

The staff was really helpful with everything and made you feel special. They also arranged all kind of fun stuffs: tours, language lessons, cooking sessions etc. They helped us when we wanted some advise to things to do, places to eat and tours to take. They even helped us with booking a tour to Kutná Horá. Loved the place!

Loved it! Had a GIANT private room with its own bathroom. Upon arriving late in the day, hot tired, confused, we were ushered into a giant meal (Czech cooking demonstration!) with a big group of travelers. After a splendid meal, the group moved to a jazz club, a short walk from the hostel. The staff are enthusiastic and treated us... More
