“Excellent stay in Prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Hostel Downtown was a very good choice to stay when I was in Prague. The location is the best; it's near all the main attractions. I was in a female room for 5 women and the room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Staff was kind and helpful. Free activities with Kristian were amazing! Great time to meet other guests and make friends.

I had a great stay at Downtown, one of the best things from my stay was the nice and friendly atmosphere, in addition, the people who work there are always happy and ready to help you. I will never forget the great evenings with the other guests and Kristian, having fun, playing board games and cooking!

The place was in good condition, clean environment and they kept everything nice and tidy. I didn't find it dirty in any respect, I was very satisfied on that point!

My purpose for the trip was the nightlife, and I got to see a lot of it, and with the excellent position of the Hostel, you don't even have to spend money on a taxi when returning home.

The Hostel is really good. For a hostel it was pretty clean an comfortable. We had a room with two beds. For two persons we had a lot of space. The Hostel is super close to the most city attractions - just five minutes to the Wenzelsplatz (Václavské náměstí)!
There are also some nice restaurants and bars for the night!

The staff is super friendly and next to the hostel is a little supermarket. Everything is perfect for a weekend trip to the beautiful Prague!

I have been to some other Hostels in Europe, but this one is by far the best I have stayed at! Upon arrival the staff was very helpful and welcoming. They gave me great information about the city and places to visit. This hostel hosted many great events like free walking tours and a dinner night where we made Garlic soup... thanks Kristian for the recipe! Kristian was great at getting everyone together and introducing us. I got to meet people from all over the world. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Didn't try the breakfast, but other people staying in my room said it was worth the 3.50 euros. The common room is very comfortable and nice place to sit and talk with new people. The have free WiFi throughout the hostel which was nice. Others I've stayed at only offer it in common areas. There are also complementary computers for your use if you didn't bring you own. Overall a very pleasant stay!

I stayed here in a room of 8 bunks with 7 of my friends and we had a blast. The hostel is really nice and the staff are super friendly. The location is perfect and the rooms are spacious. There is a convinience store downstairs which was great.

There is a great little Vietnamese place 100 metres down the road, behind KFC which was great for a cheap, hot meal.

My only issue, is that the bathrooms were sometimes not very clean.. they could be cleaned more often.

I would highly recommened this hostel. First because it is located in the centre of Prague, 1 minute from the main square , with lots of restaurants, bars, shops, buses, trams, etc. Then because it is really excellent value for your money,very clean rooms,kitchen,the staff is friendly and helpful, and would put themselves out to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.Specialy kristian) There is a great atmosphere, and it’s a great place to meet other travellers from around the world to exchange tips. You can use the wifi for free, and they also have a computer for residents to use. So if you are a friendly type of person who likes socialising and meeting new nice people, Downtown is the best place for you. I know that I would definitely stay there again when I go back to Prague.

Great hostel: supercozy common area with everything you need and really good music!
The breakfast was nice, the room was so clean and looked brand new and the staff (especially the boy) was so welcoming and friendly.
The free walking tour was excellent, totally recommend this!
Thanks a lot for such a perfect stay, we'll definately come back to this beautiful city and hostel!!!

Room Tip: the double rooms are excellent!
