“I could stay there for weeks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

I went to Charles Bridge Hostel after a business trip and I was travelling alone for the first time. The staff was super friendly and inviting, they spoiled me to the max! The room I stayed was clean and cozy even though there was a huge number of beds. The restroom was really clean too. The location was superb! Two steps froom Charles' Bridge! Spetacular!
I really wish every hostel was like this one. :)

This is how hostel should look like. Everything was very clean and the staff were very very friendly. Rooms are spacious but cozy. Free towels. Well organized tours. Good to socialize and easy to meet up people. I wish i could stay longer but i booked somewhere which also turned out to be a good spot on Prague's map

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!
