“Awesome location”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The hostel is genuinely right next to the Charles Bridge - a better and more beautiful location is impossible without paying many hundreds of euros a night. The hostel was clean, had all the facilities you need - including pc and big TV, kitchen, sofas etc. The staff were friendly and let us keep our bags there even after we checked out, giving us free coffee when we came to pick them up. Really great place, can't recommend it enough.

My wife and I recently stayed here in a private shared room and it was very clean and bed comfy. The staff were amazing and super friendly and helpful with everything we needed. They kept offering us free coffee and it was quite good. They also gave us free water bottles and when we checked out they allowed us to use the upstairs common room for free until our bus came at 11pm

Wifi was free and good strong service and the location was the best spot right in front of Charles bridge. I thought the location was the best compared to other hotels and hostels. Totally recommend this to other travelers.

I have stayed in a few interesting hostels in my time but this was miles above the rest. The staff were really friendly and welcoming, providing water and coffee and all times of the day and always happy to help, even carried our bags up to the bedroom and let us print out our flight details! The rooms were gorgeous and clean with lovely fellow travellers. The living space included a huge comfy sofa and a computer with free internet. The location was fantastic right by Charles bridge but the pubs outside shut between 11-12 so you can get to sleep easily if you fancy an early night and you are only a 5 minute walk away from clubs if you fancy a late one. Really good value for money... Just a brilliant stay! I cannot recommend this hostel enough!

CHARLES BRIDGE ECONOMIC HOSTEL is very friendly hostel strategicly situated on a "doorstep" of the Charles Bridge, which makes you absorb the atmosphere of this charming city straight after getting up of your bed and opening the window.
The number of beds in rooms is not too high. That makes the rooms cosy and tempting to communicate with roommates. That gives you an opportunity to hear interesting stories, exchange the travel experience with new friends and strengthen international relations ;-).
The bathroom is spacious and clean. There´s also the kitchen, a lounge with sofas and PC´s with internet connection. There is Wi Fi in whole building as well.
The young staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful. It disposes of quantity of information and leaflets about events and cultural happenings in Prague. You can choose from many options what to do or where to go without wasting yout time by long advance planning.
Nearby there are many shops and restaurants of different price categories, so you can get what you need almost 24/7.
I´ve spent whole weekend in The Charles Bridge Economic Hostel and I enjoyed it a lot. I´ll definitely select this place when visiting Prague next time again!!! ;-)
You guys just carry on in what you´re doing.
Kind Regards,
Kitty ;-)

I stayed three nights in another hostel in Prague before deciding I wanted to extend my stay and they didn't have any room, so I moved to this hostel for one night. How I wish I stayed here for the entire trip!! The staff are really friendly (and there's a tiny kitten) and the hostel feels really safe considering downstairs is a travel agents. There is a swipe card door to get into the hostel itself and onto each floor, and although there was a bit of a booking mix up I still got a bed in a dorm. The dorms are all really spacious and clean and have single beds instead of bunks - heaven! Clean and tidy everywhere with communal areas and kitchens on each floor. Fantastic location too - definitely recommended.

At first sight, this place doesn't look that great, but the rooms are really comfortable (with no bunk beds) and the staff were very welcoming. Also, it really is right on Charles Bridge - the location could not be better. My only complaint would be that the bathroom setup in the girls dorm was such that if someone was in the shower, noone could use the main toilet - this really wasn't a big problem, but does take a tiny bit of getting used to. Not really somewhere to meet other travellers, but a very comfortable place to stay.
