Location Information

Hostel Downtown is located in the historical centre of Prague at about 5 a minutes walk to the Wenceslas Square, 10 minutes walk to the Old Town Square and/or Charles’ Bridge and 4 minutes to the underground station Mustek, line B. You can easily walk to most historical monuments in Prague centre.

There are lots of services near the hostel such as Tesco supermarket, many small shops as well as many restaurants, bars and cafés. The National Theatre is just 100 metres from the hostel as well as the Vltava river.

It is very difficult to find a parking space in the centre of Prague which is why we offer the following two options for our guests. As hostel Downtown doesn’t have its own car park you can park in the National Theatre garages (quite expensive; EUR 2 per hour) or Park & Ride car park in Prague 7 – Holešovice (EUR 5 per day) from where you can easily get to the Prague centre by underground C line.
