About Arpacay Backpackers Hostel

One of Prague's best restaurants,Valoria, is located in the same building as our hostel. You can enjoy some great food in their cellar restaurant, or on their fantastic rooftop garden with a panoramic view over the whole of Prague.

At the hostel you can find also a large LCD TV with international channels and a DVD player with a wide range of DVDs. You will be able to make your next travel plans thanks to our Wi-Fi and 3 computers with free internet. Our reception desk is open 24 hours a day and we store your luggage any time you need.

Accommodation Information

The hostel offers a variety of rooms from a deluxe private twin/triple room to large dormitories. All dorms are equipped with personal lockers and wooden beds with comfy mattresses, big fluffy pillows and reading lamps.

2 small 4bed attic dorms offer the best view towards the Old Town and Prague Castle but be ready to climb 4 flights of stairs!

2 female only dorms with wooden ceilings are specially designed for women-travellers. The dorms share 2 toilets and 2 showers equipped with a hair dryer.

The bright and spacious 12bed dorm has a stunning view, an originally painted wooden ceiling, and is probably our nicest room in general.

The large 16bed dorm with private bathroom is a great deal for travellers on a budget. At 42-56 square meters, it is large enough to be comfortable and the beds are situated in 2-3 distinct rooms that offer sufficient levels of privacy.

Location Information

Arpacay Backpackers Hostel is situated in one of the most picturesque streets of the city that leads up to Prague Castle (120 m), and is part of the so-called Royal Road. It is within walking distance of all the major attractions, such as the Old Town Square and the well-known Charles bridge (just a 8 minutes walk).

In the Lesser Town you can also find the Kafka Museum, the John Lennon Wall, the baroque St. Nicolas Church and Church of Our Lady Victorious. You are just few steps from Petrin Hill, a wonderfully peaceful park with a 60 metres high Observation Tower offering a magnificent panorama of Prague.

You will be surrounded by plenty of czech pubs, jazz clubs and and a charming restaurant Valoria is right underneath our hostel. The hostel is only a 15 minutes walk from the famous music club Karlovy Lazne. Mini-market is conveniently situated right across the street and is open daily 6 a.m – 23 p.m.
