    I had a comfortable and cozy stay in this hostel. Definitely will go back there. We took a tour to the Jewish town with Suzie which was great. We also too the tour to hidden Prague with Katie to discover hidden gems in the city. They were both great tour guides.

    Not having a shower, only a bath tub with a shower attachment was a bummer but I loved staying here. Even with the panic in the world Hostel Downtown was a place for rest and fun.

    Not big on partying, but there were things like beer crawls available. The location was extremely nice; only a 10min walk time the Old Town Square and Charles Bridge, and it’s down the street from Region Bridge which offers a great view. Checking in and out was fast and easy, and the room was clean when I arrived (although my pillow case had a hole in the center form an unknown cut that frayed but there was a second pillow case underneath so it didn’t matter much).

    Booked a 1 day stay spontaneously during my stay at Germany and decided to come visit Prague! The hostel made it easy to come unplanned and find things to do and my flat mates turned out great to hang around with and made some great memories. Suzie, was tour guide for morning and afternoon castle tour and knew exactly how to get us around the perfect spots of the castle and gave us a awesome history of each area we came across.

    This is an excellent hostel. The best I have ever stayed in! The tours are excellent, Suzie is a great tour guide. There is an amazing atmosphere in the hostel very easy to meet people, especially on the tours. If you want to party there are some events like ping-pong beer and a pub crawl hosted by Katie. I had a wonderful experience and I will definitely recommend to my friends.

    This is a very clean hostel. I like that it’s close to a lot of things. It was cold when I went to Prague but the room was very warm & comforting. The bed was comfy. Initially I would have loved to stay again. But the people in the room beside me were drunk & LOUD all night.They don’ have reception 24 hr. I did not see anybody there at 12 am. But when I emailed they replied hours later that they probably went to the toilet. When I turned my key in at 4 am. There was a worker asleep on the floor.
