Little Quarter Hostel
This quiet hostel with nice amenities sits in a fantastic location in the "Little Quarter" (castle) side of the old town near the Charles Bridge. This historic neighborhood is close to the castle, but you can also easily walk across the bridge into old town in just a few minutes. It has some very nicely appointed dorm rooms and a few basic private rooms at a great price. They also have a comfortable common area and a fantastic breakfast for a small fee.
The dorms at the Little Quarter Hostel are comfortable, clean, and have some very nice features. The bunks have curtains as well as lockers under the beds that are locked with the key-card system of the doors. Each bunk also has a light and a plug. The rooms range in size from 4 beds up to 10 beds, and some of them have ensuite bathrooms while others use the hallway bathrooms. The rooms are large, and well-lit.
Private rooms here feel like basic budget-style hotel rooms that are great for a couple or a small group that wants their own room. With an ensuite bathroom, this is a nicely priced room in a great location with good amenities.
The bathrooms at this hostel are spacious and have plenty of hot water. They are not ultra modern, but not very old either. While this is an older, historical building, some guests say that there are not as many bathrooms as are needed. But the bathrooms are still nice.
The common area at this hostel is a nice place to relax and meet up with other guests. A small bar serves drinks while the tables make a good spot for meals (a great breakfast), a drink, or chilling on the internet for awhile. Also, the communal kitchen is a great place to cook your own meals.
They also have a nice rooftop terrace where you can relax, enjoy the views, have a meal or a drink, and chat with your friends.
Mala Strana (Castle)
Located along the road that heads up the hill from the Charles Bridge towards the Prague castle, this hostel is in a great neighborhood that is close to all of the historic sites. You can find great views here, plus a number of restaurants, bars, museums, shops, and more. A large public park area is just to the south, too.
The tram line runs just a few blocks away, and can take you around the city and into the old town if you're not up for the walk. It's a fast and easy way to get around.
A good list of amenities can be found at the Little Quarter hostel, including a laundry service (not machines), a great breakfast, communal kitchen, a small bar, TVs, bike rental, Wi-Fi, and free currency exchange.
The staff is friendly and professional, and keeps the hostel running smoothly. Overall, it's run somewhat like a hotel, which adds to the quiet nature of the hostel.
This hostel is said to be fairly quiet, so if you're looking for a party, head elsewhere. Guests here like the relaxed nature of the place, and are here to see Prague instead of party with other guests.
Otherwise, the main complaint is that they don't have enough bathrooms for everyone during the peak morning times, as this is a historic building.
