“fantastic ever”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

This is a very perfect hostel I have ever stayed just close to the Charles Bridge. The staff is very helpful and professional, giving you all useful information about Prague. I feel like I am home there. I will definitely visit Hostel Bridge again. Worth every penny.

Room Tip: You should choose the room at the top of the hostel because it has a good view.

This place was excellent. The location is literally at the entrance to the Charles Bridge so its aptly named. The staff are fantastic! Michael deserves a special shout out since he went out of his way to assure our comfort and privacy.
While the check-in desk area isn't particularly clean, the rooms, common area, bathroom and kitchen are pristine. Security is quite good since you need a card to swipe yourself into the hostel complex, the apartment area you're staying in and one more swipe for your room (same card) so it's simple, safe and efficient. It's a pretty big building with a few floors and sections (apartments) so you have everything you need.
Our room was large, clean and I had the best nights sleep I've had in nearly 6 months in their comfortable beds! The private sink in the triple private bed room was a nice touch. We also got big comfortable towels and the showers were large and comfortable to use. The only thing I wished for in that room was a mirror and maybe a small hook for a hand towel but really, it wasn't such a bother since there's a mirror in the hall and the bathroom.
Their check in desk is also a travel desk so you can get maps and information about other tours and things like that.
All the staff members were very helpful in ever way.
There's a grocery store across the street, too. There's nothing more we could have asked for from this place. I would come here if I came back to Prague.

We had a great time at the hostel! The location is amazing, just at the end of the Charles bridge. The staff was welcoming and helpful with loads of information and great tips. There are free internet stations, water and coffee for the hostel guests, and also a free ghosts-tour! The hostel provide you also many discounts for the city's attractions. The room was a deluxe 4-bed-room, it was clean and Spacious, with a TV Satellite, fool kitchen equipment, a bath with hot water and Comfortable bed. The hostel is super safe, with electronic locks. I will be coming back for sure!

Prague is beautiful and this hostel is just steps from the infamous Charles Bridge. The hostel staff was the best we met throughout Europe. They were super- friendly, helpful and eager to please! The nice thing about this hostel was they also serve as a tourist info spot offering discounts on all sorts of tours if you book with them. We traveled as a group of 4 friends and had the attic apt. which was perfect. We ate out and did not cook but there was a small kitchen. Price was good, too!

Good location that is close to the charles bridge, and easy to access from the public transporatation. We stayed in a en-suite for 4 ppl, with private kitchen and bathroom that are spacious, neat and clean. Very good value to stay here!! The staff are helpful and nice , and the little black cat WIFI as well :) However the breakfast place (Bohemia Bagel) suggested by the hostel, is not that good as we thought and over-priced.

We stayed here for four nights.We booked the Deluxe, ensuite 3 bed attic apartment. It is a lovely place to stay, as it is freshly decorated, and with a window over the street almost onto Charles Bridge. The murmur of voices from the street was pleasant. The ensuite and kitchen were well laid out, roomy and clean.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and served up free teas and coffees whenever asked to do so, as well as information about the city.
We would definitely recommend this hostel, (which was also very reasonably priced).

Room Tip: The attic private room is lovely. Our friend was in a 6 bed dorm, and was happy with his accomodatio...

The hostel staff couldn't be more helpful! They were all lovely and couldn't do enough to help. They also offered a range of benefits for people staying with them from free coffee to tours.

The hostel is in the perfect location to get to all of the major sites in Prague 1; not only this but the hostel was extremely well decorated, with beautiful ceilings and open plan bedrooms.

My only bad thing to say is that the walls aren't very sound proof and therefore the rooms can be very noisy if you're sharing an apartment, or if your room faces the main road, this can affect sleeping conditions for those who are light sleepers.
