Rooms can get a bit hot in summer - no air conditioning which is a let... More

Perfect location and friendly and helpful staff. We loved dinner with Brent, the castle tour with Mirek and his girlfriend and their dogs and the beer tour with Michiel. Everyone was welcoming and excited to share their knowledge of Prague. Would love to visit again! Can't recommend highly enough.

Hostel Downtown is really a traveler's hostel where the people from the hostel put a lot of effort in making you meet new people. On the day we arrived there, Brent cooked amazing gnocchi and we ate with 30 people and ended up in some nice bars in Prague. As the location is in the city center and really close... More

Stayed here in a five bedroom, room was clean more attention could be given to the shower and the windows. Staff couldn't have been nicer, reception was so helpful with regards places to go and things to do and very attentive. Very very reasonable prices, would defiantly recommend for interrail groups.

I read all the positive reviews and so my expectation were set high, and I'm happy to say they were met. What makes this hostel wonderful is the alchemy of a great location, well maintained building and incredible staff who work hard to create a welcoming environment. Waking up for breakfast with Violeta making pancakes and greeting people was the... More

Staff were all very friendly and helpful, and free morning and evening walking tours were a great experience, to meet other travelers and learn more about the city. I especially recommend the city tours with Mirek, who is a very friendly and entertaining guide and seems to know everything about the city, and obtained many discounts at various attractions for...

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.
