This is a really nice hostel with nice staff, clean rooms and great beds that all have a locker you can store your things in. Located on a really popular, pretty street - the walks to the main attractions are really, really pleasant. If you plan to cook, you'll have to buy your groceries closer into town. The corner stores... More

It was the first time I've traveled to Prague and I decided to stay there because of its fares and location. For my surprise, the hostel was super clean, the staff was gentle, the location is great. I'd come back there and definitely recommend it.

We stayed for 2 nights in a 6-bed-female-dorm (shared bathroom). The staff was friendly and fluent in English. The room was clean and tidy. The issue would be the bathroom, at night the sinks were kinda messy and wet. Maybe the hostel management want to work on that. :) They serve a decent breakfast if you would pay 1-2 Euros... More

Arpacay became the place of residence for a pre-xmas city break due mainly the fact it was cheap. Do not however be fooled by the price, the hostel itself is situated in the old town and is a stones throw away from the castle and a short distance from Charles Bridge. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and... More

This place is what is called good value for money, it is very cheap for groups taking its positioning into account, close to everything important in Prague even by feet. Clean place with nice receptionist. Not tried their breakfast though. Friendly environment around with many restaurants.

Stayed in this hostel for 8 nights with my spouse. Its cheap and its very worth it. The staffs; receptionist, breakfast lady and cleaner are very dedicated. The location is very ideal as it is within walking distance to Prague castle as well as other interesting destination.

I went inter-railing through Europe over summer staying in 8 hostels or so, and Arpacay was like a breath of fresh air. It's in the perfect location, right next to the castle and really close walking distance to everywhere else. I stayed in a 6 dorm room with another next door, each bed had a task light and the bathroom... More

Location: Fair, 300 meter climb up a cobblestone hill. Friendly staff. WiFi: Poor, erratic connection or none from the dorm room; just okay from the lounge. Bizarre Arpacay Hostel rule that the kitchen is ‘off-bounds’ between 06:00 -12:00 Noon; those off-limit hours should be reduced or changed. No task lights in 4-bed mixed dorm; just a bright overhead light. Room... More

The hostel is - in my opinion - in the best place possible: right under Prague Castle, takes 2 minutes to get up there (1 if you hurry). It's clean and it's quiet. I found the girls at the reception always helpful, even if they weren't smiling all the time (one should not expect that, it's not in the Czech... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
