The Charles Bridge Hostel was the best place I stayed on my trip this summer, especially for the price. I arrived early in the morning after a night train from Krakow, but the staff opened up their doors and allowed me to store my luggage until check in. They even offered me coffee and gave me the wifi password, so... More

Clean, comfortable, roomy, lots of storage and extremely helpful staff. Wifi is reliable, beers are cheap, free water and coffee for guests, kitchen and chill out areas are well kept. The staff are more than happy to help with directions, tours, taxis, tickets etc. Only downside is showers are prone to flooding and don't work properly.

We were recommended Charles Hostel by a friend and I must admit it was the best place we could have stayed! There was 3 of us, therefore we have booked a private room (which sleeps 4), there was a kitchen and a living room next to our room which could have been used by us with no time limitation. Every...

My husband and I were on an 18 day backpacking trip through Central Europe and Prague was our first stop. We stayed at the Charles Bridge Economic Hostel, and glad we did! It's a 13th century building, so lots of old Prague charm! Follow the directions from the website very carefully so you don't miss it. In terms of location,... More

I was blown away by the location of this hostel. It's literally right next to Charles Bridge. The staff were super friendly and spoke excellent English. There were free bottled water and hot beverages such as Lavazza coffee and hot chocolate available for guests. The hostel is part of a tourist office which meant lots of freebies and discounts on...

Very friendly and helpful staff, free coffee/tea/etc., very clean, comfortable beds, very well located as it is next to Charles Bridge, I have nothing bad to say! The reception is also a "tourist info counter", we arranged many of our activities there. I recommend highly!

Me and my sister spent 3 nights in the female dorm of this hostel. It's definitely one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. It was a huge room, with a massive shower room with hair dryer and straighteners if needed (Extra mirrors are needed though if several of you need to get ready at the same time) The female... More

We stayed at Charles bridge hostel for 5 nights staying at the private room with shared bathroom. Our room was located on the 1st floor, which was good because we had heavy luggage to carry. The room was very spacious and clean. There was a basin in the room as well. There are some negatives about the hostel but nothing... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
