“Excelent service and perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I would totally recommend this hostal. The location is perfect, 20 steps away (literally) from Charles Bridge, many nice places to eat around and the best part is that the hostel is also a tourist information center, so you have discounts in almost every activity if you book it there, and they offer free tours trough the city that are really good.
The staff is the nicest i have ever known, they really want you to feel comfortable and they offered coffee, tea, bottled water every time they see you.

I went with other 2 persons, and every tour we took from the hostal was really personal and fun, specially the seway tour, which was incredibly fun and the tour guide (i think his name was Mark) took us in a route that stopped twice for drinks, it was really really fun, i would totally recommend it.

The rooms are very comfortable, the bathrooms very clean, and you even have a common room that you share with other room where you can see movies, read, etc.

5/5, excellent hostal, best i've ever been.

Friendliest staff in the world, clean rooms with tons of amenities, great showers, free waterbottles/hot chocolate/coffee/tea anytime, and we were driven to the train station for free by the owner's friend because he couldn't find a large enough cab. I can't stop raving about this place - by far the best hostel in Prague and probably in the world.

This hosterl has the perfect location right next to the Charles bridge smack bang in the centre. On arrival the staff were really friendly and we had free coffee and snuggles with the cat WiFi. Our room was clean and nicely decorated and warm.the only negative for me as a light sleeper was the noise from the door as people came in but otherwise the hostel is brilliant.

The owners of this hostel are absolutely fantastic. They were incredibly helpful, had a free map and even lent us a guidebook for free. It's hard to explain how accommodating this hostel was. They included for free: towels, unlimited coffee and tea (The espressos were absolutely delicious), maps, luggage storage, safe storage behind the desk (if asked nicely), free wifi, a free desktop to use in the common room, and an adorable cat named Wifi that lives in the lobby! The bedrooms were the most spacious I have ever seen. Only one bunk bed in a 6 person room! The hostel is the PERFECT location, literally at the end of the Charles bridge which is the center of the entire city. It was a maximum 20 minutes walk to anywhere in the city! I would definitely go back!

Room Tip: (only relevant to females) The female rooms are better than mixed rooms with cleanliness

I have been to several hostels but the Charles Bridge Hostel has been by far the best hostel I have been to. We are a group of 30 year olds that like to travel in a group (5 people). We booked the attic room and it was just marvelous; a private apartment full with kitchen necessities. Nice individual beds. The best part was the service. The Charles Hostel knows what customer service is. They always welcome you with a friendly smile, offer a cup of coffee and do everything to make your experience in Prague the best experience ever. It is rare to come upon people who truly love their job.

Room Tip: We took the Attic Room. It is really cosy. This is a great hostel for groups put not an individual p...

I picked this hostel due to the great reviews and they weren't wrong. Lovely lovely lovely staff! So friendly, great English, free tea, coffee and WIFI. Rooms were big enough and HUGE bed. Was in room 24 and it had a kitchenette and a cool light fixture n the roof. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that the bathroom (which was great size and shower size) had this odd smell which stank up the place. It was there when we got there. We got used to it after a while, but it was the only fault.

Fantastic location, only about 200 crown from train station by taxi and then 15 minute walk to anythings else.

Thanks for a great visit guys!

Thank you so much for your very nice review. We are so sorry for your stinky inconvenience. Our building was built in the 14th century and some times history reveals itself in smelly ways. We have found the cause and I can assure you that we are in the process of fixing this problem. We would like you to enjoy one night free in room 24 during your next stay in Prague, so you can see for yourself what the room should smell like. We sincerely apologize for your less than amazing experience, and we really appreciate you for bringing this issue to our attention. Safe travels, cheers, and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
