    Location is key but staff commitment for an enjoyable stay is paramount. Michiel made sure all guests were having a holiday they wound not forget. He goes out of his way taking guests on activities much more than expected. Quality and excellence are his natural characteristics while providing exceptional customer service. Owners should feel blessed having him and the entire staff run Hostel Downtown. Thanks and congratulations, everyone! Had a holiday that I would not forget for a very long time.

    Nice hostel, great location

    Nice hostel with choice of rooms. I can't use an upper bunk, but they have rooms with just single beds in them which was really nice. Beds all had nightstands and reading lamps. Ensuite bathroom and lockers. They had a big kitchen and common area, but there was a charge for breakfast. Great location.

    This hostel was absolutely amazing. Starting with the staff; they have amazing events every night! From pub crawls to beer pong, all at a very reasonable price. Their breakfast option was great in the morning. This was my first stay at a hostel and it was an amazing experience. Friendships created that will last a lifetime. My only complaint was having to share a blow dryer-there should at least be one available in the private rooms.

    We were in Prague for 2 nights and this was a perfect spot for us. The staff was friendly and helpful. The space was exactly what we expected. The breakfast was great and they have a change machine making it easy to change currencies with no added fee. It is also right next to a meteor stop and an ATM. We would stay again.

    Great All-around Hostel in Prague 1

    Great location in Prague 1, short walking distance to great restaurants, bars, and Old Town Square. Free walking tours put on by the staff. The Light Tour was great to get to know Prague 1 at night and meet fellow travelers.
