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.

I stayed at Hostel Downtown for four days. The location was within walking distance from the old town square and castle. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The lounge and common area was spacious. In the evenings there are walking tours with Gil. He was very knowledgeable about Prague and was outgoing. I had a great time on the... More

Actually haven't been to the hostel itself but I did the walking tour with them and it was pretty cool! Gil (our guide) was very entertaining and funny, explained a lot about the city and the historical attractions! I definitely recommend! Lovely city too!

Hostel facilities are average. No ventilation in the dorm I was in. Toilets are a bit run down. Breakfast was good for the price. Can get a bit noisy at night. Definitely do the free Tour with Gil. Funny and entertaining guide!

This hostel has a great location just a short walk from the nightlife, the tourist attractions and the shops. It is immaculately clean with exceptionally friendly staff. Our room was big with an ensuite shower. By far enough facilities for people which meant never having to queue for a shower. They are really great advising you on what to do... More

Had a great time at this hostel, friendly staff, no short-comings in regards of what one expects from a hostel. The hostel has many nice activities, and together with the reception area, it's a good opportunity to meet other travellers and locals. Mirek's ghost (it was about old legends in prague) tour was very interesting and competent, and it ended... More

This hostel is very accommodating and clean! The wifi is excellent in my experience. Every evening they have a very cheap activity to do with the guests. The first night we cooked an authentic Czech meal with one of the tour guides. It was very good and there was plenty to eat! Who doesn't love a delicious and free meal!... More
