Very good location, near metro and old town square, staff were very nice, Grace at reception was lovely and helpful. Would be good as a party hostel but we weren't going out and had no issues with it. Very clean and nice rooms. Only negative thing I could saw was that one night it was hot so we opened the... More

I went on a 10 day trip through Eastern Europe with 14 friends and stayed three nights in the Old Prague Hostel. I enjoyed the stay, although there are some remarks. I think the showers were the biggest issue. Concerning the ones for the males, one of them couldn't be used because the hose was broken. When you turned on... More

If you are, like many others, a party tourist in prague this is probably perfect for you. The hostel is central, walking distance from bar/club area and you will find other people at the hostel to party with. I was more interested in the city itself, so the partying wasnt for me, but the location was still very convenient. it... More

Big, clean, good location. Large communal area and kitchen and very good wifi. Free sandwiches and breakfast and the staff were kind and helpful. Hairdryers are available which is useful. I would stay here again.

We arrived in Prague by train and used our trusty iPhone satnav to direct our short walk through town to find where we should be. Firstly, there are a lot of stairs at this hostel, however, there is a working lift if you're not feeling energetic! Checking in was simple and reception staff were very friendly. We were only staying... More

Group of 4 English 18-year-olds. Stayed here in Prague for 2 nights whilst interrailing and had an awesome time. Stayed in a room of 12 - some people from Dublin, some from Scotland, two girls from California. All were very friendly and gave us some good recommendations of what to do whilst in Prague. Only real criticism were the showers... More

We were not orginally booked at this hostel. Ours had overbooked and sent us here which was fine. Everything was similar. You get free breakfast (tea, coffee, cereal) and a sandwich which we took out with us for a free lunch. The wifi is spotty but if you find the right spots it works well. The room was REALLY hot...

We had a bad experience here- found bed bugs when we got to our room and the handling of this situation by the staff just got progressively worse. First, their solution "change the sheets"--what?! No, that won't work! Second, the front desk guy said he'd help find us somewhere else w an open room/ beds and he didn't even pretend... More

We had the absolute best time in Prague. We stayed in an eight bed mixed dorm and everyone was lovely, and it was very secure and homely. It was fairly well clean; sometimes the bathrooms got a bit manky, but it really didn't phase us. One of the best things about this place was the location, we didn't need public... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
