I used the Hostel International website to book Hostel Downtown in Prague, without doing any further research, thinking that this place would be competitively priced. However, when I got to Prague, I realized that this city is generally more reasonable, compared to other European cities. We stayed in a double room en-suite, and paid quite a bit for each bed per night. When we walked around, we realized that at that price, we could have gotten a pretty nice HOTEL in and around the vicinity. In fact some of the places we saw were a few $s cheaper.
The location of this hostel is amazing, very close to all forms of public transportation. The hostel is clean and decently maintained. The staff seemed knowledgeable about the local areas. If you are single, and travelling alone I would suggest considering this place. However, if you are a couple, and looking for an en suite room, just get a hotel as this place is a complete ripoff. Moreover, they wouldn't even accept our Hostel International cards.
