Charles Bridge Economic Hostel
Ranked #6 of 687 Specialty Lodging in Prague
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 30, 2012

We were very impressed by the hostel. The location was phenomenal, right beside the Charles Bridge (if you didn't get that from the name), and it also served as a tourist office which provided some excellent deals and service. The rooms were cozy, almost like bedrooms, and the bathrooms very clean. There were social areas, TV's and computers on every floor, while retaining a quaint feel.

I'll keep this brief because I'm only going to end up repeating what others have said. Stayed in a deluxe 4 person room (worth noting that 4 person room = 2 double beds). Location really is in a premium location. Value is superb in comparison to what we paid elsewhere. Service was superb - one particular person (one of the owners) really was a wonderful host and took great pride in his hostel. Room was great (apartment) and clean. Nice patio area serving the apartment on the top floor. Courtyard on ground floor by reception great and provided free wifi (most of the hostel has accessible free wifi but for some reason mine wouldnt connect when I was in the room - in the courtyard and patio area it was fine) as well as superb coffees - the type you'd happily pay for, straight from a nespresso machine. VERY highly recommend, understanably very well rated. Only a matter of time until this place raises its prices (and why shouldnt they) and gets booked up well in advance. See my tips below..

Room Tip: Two tips - 1) MAKE SURE you take advantage of the 50% off Segway offer via the hotel. Absolute must...

We were traveling in a large group so we rented both the apartment style accommodations and loved them!! One had beam ceilings and a small kitchen. The staff was above and beyond friendly. Be aware there are only stairs so be prepared to hike them. Free internet, very clean, nice views, comfortable, the best location possible, and great price. Con's: None, other than book early they fill up fast. Advice: Eat breakfast next door with the coupon the hostel offers. It's buffet and probably the best breakfast we had in Europe!

Room Tip: Choose the apartment on the top floor!

I stayed for two nights. The staff are very friendly and go out of your way to help you. Free linen, free water bottles, luggage space is free , they have locks and UK to eu adaptors, free coffee and loads of discount vouchers (for segway tours and ghost tours) and 24 hour access. I made some lovely friends staying at the hostel. Location is ideal - very central and metro is 5 mins away. Max 40 mins from the airport.
The best thing is that the rooms are large and there are no bunk beds - just a flat spread which in my opinion is better than bunk beds.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here! The information alone that you can gather at the front desk (we asked A LOT of questions) is worth the price, and you get a great place to stay on top of that. Free water, Nespresso, and Internet usage were a nice surprise as well. The rooms were clean, bathroom large, and beds comfortable. Only recommendation: If you are traveling with someone and would like your beds next to each other, make sure to ask. All staff has been extremely helpful, I can't emphasize enough how great this hostel has been! Would definitely stay here again.

Overall great value! The staff are super helpful and friendly, rooms and bathrooms very clean, walking distance to all the big sites. We did have a little difficulty finding it the first time because the sign is relatively small. Free wifi, coffee and water are another great bonus. I would absolutely stay here again in a heart beat.

The little things make all the difference and that's why this hostel is great. Over the past month I have stayed in 10+ hostels and the fact the hostel gives you bottled water, washing machine, towels, coffee and tea and in a great location. I would say this hostel is for 18-35 year olds. Loved it.
