    I am an older solo female traveler who has stayed at this hostel for a total of 3 weeks (off and on). This has been my very best experience in the 4 months I have been traveling. The staff are outstanding. The free activities - especially the cooking classes and tours are so fun! There are so many opportunities to meet other travelers and the activities at this hostel encourage getting to know each other. Prague is an amazing city and this hostel is the perfect location.

    This was a great hostel. Great atmosphere and very social. Lots of different free activities included with your stay. We did the hidden walking tour with Katie and it was great. Katie was a great host and even met with us next day to give us tips for our next city. Would highly recommend here.

    I only stayed for one night in this Hostel, but certainly wish I could have stayed for more! Luckily for me, I happened to stay on THE BEST night, because Aneta was hosting the Planet Prague Tour. This tour was absolutely the highlight of my stay at Hostel DownTown. Aneta took us to some incredible spots ranging from local dive bars, to drinking hot wine outside, and my personal favorite which included an incredible movie premier and dancing all night. Thanks Aneta! For sure will come back!

    Very secure, you need your key card for most doors, even hallways, and the lockers are huge. I love that there are no bunk beds here! Breakfast had a lot of food, even pancakes, fried eggs, and sausages! The kitchen was bigger than what I've seen at most hostels in Europe, and it was close to lots of restaurants (sot down and take away). You can easily walk to most tourist places. Reception was friendly and helpful, and they have a post box where you can drop off postcards. Reliable wifi

    Really liked this hostel. Big kitchen allowing multiple people to cook. Clean facilities. My room didn’t have bunks which was amazing and the room was decorated with stars that flew with the LED lights which was a nice change from basic hostels. I went during off season so it was a little more quiet but there were still activities on, free dinner was very appreciated! Walkable distance to everything, would recommend.

    Our stay was nice! The staff was friendly and gave us suggestions on where to go. They recommended the pub crawl which was really a huge highlight of our trip. Definitely do it if you can. Everything was pretty clean and we got to check in early which was great.

    Super close to the center which is a plus. Clean rooms but for some reason the bed was not comfy. The bathrooms are good as well but each 6 persons share one which is not so efficient.

    Easy access location. Really horrible customer service, worse experience ever in the hostel so far. I think will be a great improvement if they replace the ones at the front desk. Zero customer care attention no matter which one it was at the front they have an attitude. Maybe the recruiter team needs to take more effort. Good breakfast. Awesome walking your activities Suzie was the person who went the extra mile on those walking tours.Thank you Suzie .
