Hostel Focus: Czech Inn, Prague

Located in the trendy Vinohrady neighbourhood of Prague, the Czech Inn is in the perfect spot to discover the real Prague – close enough to the centre to be near the big attractions but just far enough away to have its own identity.  In fact, you may say that Vinohrady has it all, from beautiful parks, tree lined streets and Art Deco buildings to craft beer bars, speciality coffee spots and some of the best restaurants in the city.

Is it a bit hipster-ish? Yes, it’s true, there is definite hispter vibe here but it’s also a dynamic and buzzing district with plenty to see and do, including the Riegrovy sady park with its massive beer garden (it has capacity for 1,400 people) and Jiřího z Poděbrad square with its famous Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord and unmissable farmers markets  There are even vineyards!

So that’s the neighbourhood covered – what about the hostel itself?  We got the lowdown on the Czech Inn from Ondrej Janku, Sales & Marketing Manager.
