Good service, nice kitchen, good location. Specious room, warm, nice shower. The worst mattress I've ever experienced, stains on bed sheet and on the wall. Some maintenance would make the stay excellent!

My sister and I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights in October and had the absolute best time! The atmosphere is perfect for solo travelers wanting to meet other people and the activities that the hostel arranges are super fun! The wine tasting with Bernice, Brent's Italian dinner, and Gil's walking tour and puppet show were a total blast!...

As much as I enjoyed my stay in Copenhagen, I found some of the the staff at downtown to be a bit brash when asking for help and not always particularly helpful (although this was not the case for all of them). Also, there was a drainy smell that got progressively worse over our stay, only noticeable in the bathrooms...

This hostel is in a nice location, near Mušek station and the historical centre of town, but far enough that the streets aren't constantly packed with other travellers. There are organised activities each night and many great people to meet from across the planet. Rooms do the job nicely and were clean on arrival. Staff are friendly and speak a...

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
