I have never stayed in a better hostel. I have stayed there twice and it's amazing. The front desk staff are really nice and helpful. I left my shoes there and they found them and got them back to me! They always want to help and have amazing activities always set up! Mirek is a hilarious tour guide and a wicked person to host events with. There is spectacular living room area and washing machine and kitchen! Their luggage room was full and they opened a new room for us to leave our stuff in! People drink there and the location for the hostel is right by the city centre. I cannot say enough good things!

The walking tour with Gil Conti is a must do. A really friendly guy with great knowledge of Prague. Well worth the couple of hours walking through the streets to see things from a local's perspective. He is open to requests about any sites you may want to see but also knows many cool places most tourists would be oblivious too. Na zdraví Gil!!!

I've stayed there On April, 2013. I liked it compared to other hostels, I paid 700 CZK per day, It's not the cheapest hostel, but breakfast was included. The location is great, next to the river, like 10 minutos from Charles Bridge, and 10 minutes walking to Stare Mesto. There was big lockers what is REALLY IMPORTANT in every hostel.

Room Tip: The rooms are mixed, so, try to pick-up the room that the window is not in front to the street and w...

This hostel was perfect for our group of 6 students on holiday from Copenhagen.
Rooms were cheap, bathrooms immaculate and the staff were extremely helpful.
The highlight of my trip was definitely the free walking tour. Our tour guide Gil was really down to earth and took us around Prague on a 3 hour casual stroll. We even learnt a few life lessons on the way!
All in all, I would definitely recommend a stay at Hostel Downtown. It's affordable and within walking distance to all the main attractions and clubs.

This is more than an hostel, it's a cheap hotel with all the comforts, a great view (from 6th floor) and nice rooms...it also organizes a lot of activities (I recommend the visit to the observatory with Mirak, he's lovely and the tour is nice and uncommon)...just bring your own towels cause they are not provided!
