Very friendly, very clean, affordable hostel in a great location, right in the city centre so it was easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Free walking tours are arranged which are an absolute must for sightseeing. All the staff were so welcoming and helpful, and free activities are arranged in the common room area like a cooking lesson.... More

I had a great time with this hostel and its amazing staff!! I was able to take the walking tour with Gil (which is a must if you stay at this hostel). I was able to get a good look at the town with his tour and really soak up the culture. The hostel has many amenities and is clean... More

Simply one of the best Hostels I have ever been in! Friendly staff, great activities and a nice common room. The gost tour with our brilliant guide Mirek, which ended in a real czech pub with many locals was awsome! All in all it was a super stay and a great experience!

All six of my mates and I were blown away by this place. We came in with high expectations (because of the high standards of hostels we've already been to), but the hospitality, free activities and quality of the rooms were unbelievable. Especially considering how affordable it is. We were greeted by Adam at the front desk and this dude... More

Hands down Hostel Downtown is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The whole place is clean, feels safe and is well run. But it is the staff and the free activities which make it stand out. Don't miss the free walking tour with Gil. So much fun with an absolute gem of a man who makes it... More

Not far from the railways or the history. A perfect location that was relatively easy to find. From moment one the staff was friendly and more then accommodating. The rooms are large and some have the shower right inside of the room which was very clutch. My roommates were friendly and most were there with similar intents as I in... More

Hostel Downtown was by far the stand out hostel on our entire trip. Right from the booking through to departure everyone was exceedingly helpful and friendly. Marek's walking tour was comprehensive but also very personalized- allowing us to climb the towers for amazing views, listen to the musicians on the bridge and giving us the locals' insight into Prague. Marek... More

During my stay in the hostel I had a great time, especially on wednesday - it is the time for activity: summer cinema with Pavlina (she is very friendly and charming person). The place (don´t remember how it is called) had atmosphere and energy, we got snack and... More

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
