This is our second visit to this hostel and it really is the best hostel we have ever stayed in. 1. Location: the location is perfect and couldn't be better. It's situated right next to the Charles bridge - not even a 5 second walk. There are plenty of shops and a square just up the road where there are...

Situated in the prime location in Prague, this place is a must stay for travellers. In an older styled building, the place is clean, the staff are very helpful and friendly. The only downsides to this place is that it doubles as a tourist information center and segway tour meeting point making it difficult during the day to access the...

I hadn't stayed in a hostel before but I had been to them before and they're not really the most comfortable of places all-in-all, at least not compared to b&b's or hotels. But this place is unique. The service from the staff is fantastic. The dorms are well laid-out. AND IT'S RIGHT FRIGGIN SMACK-BANG AT THE VERY EDGE OF THE...

Went to Prague for 3 days and had a splendid time there. Upon arriving, we were asked if we wanted water or coffee and they would make it for us. At check in, we were informed that there would be a free city tour arranged by the hostel so we left our bags in the room and went for the...

The Charles Bridge Hostel was the best place I stayed on my trip this summer, especially for the price. I arrived early in the morning after a night train from Krakow, but the staff opened up their doors and allowed me to store my luggage until check in. They even offered me coffee and gave me the wifi password, so...

Clean, comfortable, roomy, lots of storage and extremely helpful staff. Wifi is reliable, beers are cheap, free water and coffee for guests, kitchen and chill out areas are well kept. The staff are more than happy to help with directions, tours, taxis, tickets etc. Only downside is showers are prone to flooding and don't work properly.

We were recommended Charles Hostel by a friend and I must admit it was the best place we could have stayed! There was 3 of us, therefore we have booked a private room (which sleeps 4), there was a kitchen and a living room next to our room which could have been used by us with no time limitation. Every...

My husband and I were on an 18 day backpacking trip through Central Europe and Prague was our first stop. We stayed at the Charles Bridge Economic Hostel, and glad we did! It's a 13th century building, so lots of old Prague charm! Follow the directions from the website very carefully so you don't miss it. In terms of location,...

I was blown away by the location of this hostel. It's literally right next to Charles Bridge. The staff were super friendly and spoke excellent English. There were free bottled water and hot beverages such as Lavazza coffee and hot chocolate available for guests. The hostel is part of a tourist office which meant lots of freebies and discounts on...

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
