I was extremely impressed with Hostel Downtown. Right from the start, their directions for taking public transit from the airport were concise and correct, getting me there in no time at all. When I showed up to check in, I was handed a glass of water even before I was given the forms to fill out. They were accommodating for... More

Nice, clean hostel with a very convenient location. Very friendly staff, especially according to Czech standards. Also, they organize a lot of free activities and some paid activities which are really good :) If I would ever visit Prague again, I would definately go here again :)

I hadn't planned to stay in a hostel but the hotels that were available were a long way out of the centre. Recently stayed here after looking for a hostel in Prague. One very helpful tour guide led me to this hostel when I was lost. Thank you. I ended up staying six nights. I went on two tours with... More

Definitely a large part of the reason my trip to Prague was so enjoyable! Gil Conti's tour really showed parts of Prague I would never have discovered otherwise! Best tour guide ever! I hope I'll be able to go back soon!

The perfect spot where to stay when in Prague. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Located just a few blocks away from the major sites. The hostel organizes activities for free or just a few korunas. I personally went on a (free) walking tour with Gil on the first night I got there, which was pretty fun. A great way... More

Stay Here. Prague is awesome but you wouldn't enjoy it to the fullest degree without the ridiculously awesome staff at Hostel Downtown. Barbara was so informative, patient and helpful - not only to me and my fiancé but the rest of the guests as well. Really though the highlight of the stay was the various free tours offered by Gil...

Hostel downtown is in the ideal place of the city not too far from everything but not too close either making it a friendly and affordable place to stay. Their daily activities make sure that you always have something to do whether you have a long or a short stay. If you don't know much about the city you can... More

What an awesome place to stay in Prague. It is right in the middle of everything. Met a bunch of cool people and they ALWAYS have free activities going on daily. Even if that activity isnt your thing, the staff is so friendly, they will probably just ask you what you want to do and make a trip out of... More

Great location, communal areas and staff. Got a random upgrade so can't say what the dorms are like but 3bed room was good. Lots of free or cheap activities arranged by staff, like jazz club night - Mirek and Marketa were especially great. Walking distance of everything in Prague.
