Great hostel close to everything. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They will make you a coffee anytime. Grab a pastry from the supermarket and a coffee from the hostel and you have breakfast. Hostel is older style but very central.

There were four of us traveling through Prague for 5 nights and we stayed here each night and didn't regret it. The only complaint was that it was mid June and incredibly hot (90F daily and didn't cool much at night) and unfortunately this place didn't have air conditioning or fans so we were sweating buckets and didn't sleep well/much (who does in Prague anyways though right?)
Otherwise the staff were incredibly approachable, friendly and beyond helpful. The reception also served as a tourist information for the general public so they had information on absolutely everything to do while staying in Prague. We hadn't planned any activities or done research prior to arriving, so it was extremely convenient having the staff help us plan our stay. They offer amazing discounts on tours (and some tours even they offer to paying guests for free).
They also offer unlimited bottled water and are happy to making amazing coffees for guests free of charge.
The rooms are comfortable and the floor we were staying on had a communal kitchen which was comfortable and had everything you might need and was clean.
The location was great! There was a grocery store just across the street and restaurants just steps from the front door.
Overall, this is the place I would recommend to friends visiting.

Room Tip: We picked a 4 bed dorm on the first guest floor and it was adequately sized. There was no fan/air-co...

Got one night on the Charles Bridge Economic Hostel.
The location is perfect. Very nice place. Very nice staff. The girl on the reception was so nice and sweet!!
They got a lot of free tours to offer (and free water bottles!! important thing when youre traveling and walking for long time)

Sometimes i tought that it is a little noize, but who cares? Its Praha! Beer and Fun time!!

Very good experience and VERY GOOD price! =)

I've been travelling for 2 months all around Europe and this was by far the best place I stayed. Staff are incredibly friendly and will make sure you have a great time! So much information but definitely all worth taking in. Best facilities.Free tea, coffee and water whenever you want it. Everything is such a close walk and it's such a nice city to walk around. Couldn't ask for anything more. Didn't want to leave and already planning my next trip back (like I promised :P)

I've been traveling Europe for the past two weeks and this blows every hostel I've stayed at OUT OF THE WATER! The staff is incredibly nice and I honestly don't have one bad thing to say about it. The girls room is so cute and clean and they also give guests a guide book, locks for your locker (of course to borrow) and unlimited coffee and bottled water. It's a bit of a walk to old town square but I think it's worth it to have an excellent experience.

非常非常推薦這間青年旅館!
櫃檯的服務人員非常親切,而且非常樂於解答你所有的旅遊問題。
除了能夠得到許多旅遊資訊,這裡的設備也很齊全。
有廚房,冰箱,洗衣機,wifi(有時候不是很穩,不過在一樓使用的話會好一些。)
地點位置好(就在查理大橋旁),價格實惠,服務品質好,
個人非常喜歡這間旅館!
The staff were very kind, and they gave us lots of information.
Besides, it was a fully-equipped hostel. Including kitchen, refrigerator, washing machine and wifi( the internet connection was abit unsteady in room, but there was no problem on the ground floor.)
Convenient position, nice and helpful staff, and great deals for Prague!
Would stay here again!

The hostel is such a great option. Located in the absolutely right place, walking distance from all the major attractions. The staff are so friendly they make you feel at home. The owner of the hostel even dropped me off at the salon in his own car when I was running late for the appointment! I initially planned to stay only for 3 days but cancelled my trip to Vienna and stayed longer in Prague because of the atmosphere there. They have free laundry, coffee and mineral water. The place is absolutely clean and maintained fantastically. For the price, you could live there forever!!! I absolutely love this place and the staff and recommend it everyone.
