no doubt this subject will have come up many times in this forum but any help or advice anyone can offer will be gratefully received.
Me and four friends are travelling to Prague to see in the New Year at the end of December. Can anyone give me any help or info on good hostels or cheap hotels, i have been on a few websites and know a few of the names of the hostels but if anyone has stayed at a really good hostel then all replies will be well recieved.
Also, for those that have been to Prague or live there, what are the main things that we should be looking to see and do? Like most people I expect, we like to see the sites through the day then eat, drink and party at night.
Thanks very much in advance for any replies,
hey man, you should def check out the clown and bard hostel. its a very buzzy hostel, near enough the train/bus station( well theres a uphill trek from the train station), bout 10 mins walk. its bout £6 a night in the big dorm, its got a bar, pints are bout 60p and all the absint you can manage. centre of town is only 2/3 metro stops away.
round the corner theres a pretty famous club called the "accropolis", it goes all night then opens for breakfast in the morn.
all the major sightseeing places are pretty obvious once you get there, the castle, charles bridge etc
theres the travellers hostel too, and i think its just as cheap if theres a group to rent an aptartment though i dont know where you'ld start looking.
Sir Toby's and Miss Sophies are good as well, there are more details of phone numbers etc on www.backpackingeurope.com and other hostels too.
But don't just do Prague, get out to the Poets Corner in Oluomac or something like that, and of course Cesky Kromlov, hey Czech countryside is definately worth the effort.
Would def agree about seeing cesky krumlov if u get the chance. Gotta bit the quaintest place i have ever seen.
Dont go to the apple hostel - is a nightmare to find and quite a way from the centre of town - though close to the main train station. The hsotel dejvika is nice, though slightly further out and possible more expensive as they have private rooms with ensuite.
There is loads to see in Prague - make sure u have plenty of film in ur camera!
