We visited Arpacay this month on our interrail trip around Europe. The hostel is situated fairly close to tram and train links which is handy, however you don't really need them because it's close to all the sights such as Prague castle and Charles bridge. The wifi was alright (if it connected). The bedrooms were really nice and clean, however... More

This hostel was clean and the room was really nicely decorated with comfortable beds and didn't have the same old bunk bed hostel look about it. It's in a really good location - bit of a walk up the hill and about a 20 minute walk into the old town across Charles Bridge, but right next to the Castle. Loads... More

If you are looking for a clean, modern, fashionable hostel with a reasonably good location (about 15-20 minute walk to old town) this is a highly recommended hostel. It is very good value at approx £11 per night, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Yet, the hostel lacked atmosphere and conversation amongst guests- creating an awkward atmosphere.

The location is amazing. My bed in the fem dorm was very comfortable and the room was very quiet. The sared bathrooms and showers are clean and enough for all the rooms. The hostel offers a buffet style breakfast for 3 euro that was good enough. People at the front desk helped us with transportation and locations quiestions. I would... More

This was an amazing place to stay. We stayed in a 12 bedroom and loved it. It was super spacious and spread out so you didn't feel like you were crammed in with 11 other people. It was extremely clean in our room and the bathrooms. The breakfast in the morning was about 75 kroner and was yummy. The location... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in May and we were happy with the place. It's a 5 min walk to Prague Castle, 10 min walk to Charles Bridge and 20 min walk to Old Town Square. It's at the top of a big hill but the view from our room was worth it. The breakfast is... More

Staying at Arcapay was like a holiday from holiday. The hostel is extremely clean, with good wifi, very comfortable beds and a delicious, all you can eat, buffet breakfast for EUR 3. The location is ideal - just around the corner from the castle and a ten minute walk from the bridge and the main square. Along with the power... More

The best hostel I've stayed in so far. Very clean and great location. Easy walk up to the castle and into the old town, with lots of restaurants easily accessible. The cheap and delicious breakfast was a massive bonus.Would definitely come back here and would recommend it to anyone.

Locations is excellent. Their website has details for public transport to and from the airport which was easy and efficient costing only a couple of pounds. Taxis are more expensive but still fairly cheap, about £10-15 total. The hostel is really close to the castle and cathedral and about 5 minutes from Charles Bridge, 10 minutes to Old Town Square....

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.
