After staying at Hostel Downtown for the second time in two years, i’m seriously considering making it an annual thing. The location is great and the rooms are very nice - they are clean and colourful and on our last stay we also had a spectacular view over the city and castle! But it’s not the rooms that make the...

Had the best time. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Ashlee is my homegirl and makes some killer breakfast. Definitely recommend the group night activities. Beer pong and bar crawl with brent and gil was a blast and we met alot of cool people.

The hostel was amazing as were the staff! They were very helpful and enthusiastic. The activities they put on each night were great such as wine tasting and tour guide walks through the city. The breakfast provided each morning was amazing cooked by Violeta! And Brent was excellent with his insight into the city of Prague. Would definitely recommend this... More

I can't say enough about my stay at Hostel Downtown. I've been to several hostels and never had so much fun. One part was the amazing staff; I loved Brent, Bernice, Michiel, and the lovely receptionists (I hate I forget their names!). Never met Mirek but I heard negative things about his tours, so probably best to try with somebody... More

Great Hostel right in the heart of Prague. Great staff, friendly and clean. They offer activities for guests if you want to meet fellow travellers, like wine tastings, city tours and beer pong. Definitely would not consider any other place to stay when visiting Prague.

Hostel Downtown is probably one of the best hostels in Europe. From day one everyone has been great and especially Marek and Brent. Rooms are great, nice locations and friendly staff. They serve free dinner on Sundays that Brent cooks, as well I had a wine tasting night which was super fun. I have only been at the hostel three... More

I throughly enjoyed my stay here. The room was clean and as it was an all girls dorm on the top floor I was lucky to also have an amazing view of the castle from my window. There was a great social buzz about the hostel with the hostel organising activities such as a pub crawl and wine tasting which... 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.
