Nice hostel situated in the red district (not the best and nicest place during the night). The room was big, like a little apartment. Very helpful staff that could answer our questions. Not a party hostel, but a nice and quite place to rest, near Wenceslav square. Not the best hostel I've been to, but worth a try!

I was there 2 times. It's quite tidy. I like it's in the center of the city and everything is close to it. The best place was in the attic- beautiful view but many many stairs to subdue;) i recommend.

The location is great,in the center,and you don't need transportation if you are going sight seeing. The kitchen even has an iron,and everything else tou need... More

We stayed here for five nights. First we had only booked three nights, but we added two nights after the first night, and we didn't even have to change room. We had the 4 person private ensuite, which had a shared room with beds upon entrance, a kitchen with microwave, fridge, a table and an extra bed, and a bathroom.... More

This hostel was alright. I thought it was a pretty good price for the location, just a few blocks off of Wenceslas Square. We stayed on the top floor, it was a long hike up and at night many of the stairway lights were burnt out. The room itself was okay, the "double bed" was just two twin sized beds... More

We booked and paid for a private room for two nights, and was "upgraded" to our own apartment-type accommodation about 5 minutes walking from the main hostel. I appreciated the upgrade, yes, but the apartment was old and very dingy, with very uncomfortable beds. It was very dark, with no WiFi or internet access. The kitchen area was filthy with... More

Yes, we were in the red light district with two cabarets and one club savna, there are black people on the corners, we were in the room for 13 people, but....it's fine. It's save (you must lock), clean, water is always warm, you can cook, very spacious and near are the markets that are very cheap. The only disadvantage is... More

We booked and paid for a private ensuite room and were given a room that was not ensuite. We had to cross a common kitchen area to use the private toilet and shower. it was Easter weekend and everywhere was booked solid and we had no option but to accept the situation. I would not recommend this hostel. The location... More

There are several things that Hostel Atlas does not tell you on its website. Firstly, it is located in what is effectively Prague's red-light district. It shares a block with no fewer than five strip-clubs, and it is par for the course for drug dealers and prostitutes to advertise their wares to various passerby. Moreover, Wenceslas Square is by no... More

The Hostel Atlas was a great place for the 4 of us college sophomores. We were right down the street from the National Museum and the huge bustling square on which it is located. Since we are young we walked everywhere and found our hostel to be in a very advantageous location. We were able to walk back after long... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
