There used to be a time when the word “hostel” left images of backpackers wandering down dark, gloomy hallways and sleeping in squeaky beds from the 1920s. Those days, my friends, are long gone. The quality of hostels around Europe has dramatically increased as many top accommodations across the map have set the bar very high. Two of these amazing hostels lay in the heart of Eastern Europe’s fairytale city of rich history, amusing architecture, and unique nightlife: Prague.
First, the Mosaic House ( http://www.mosaichouse.com/ ) has recently been named the best of 670 hotels in Prague by the Prague Post newspaper. Located in the city center near the National Theater and just a short walk from Prague’s famous Charles Bridge, Mosaic House is close to all the historical hot-spots, including the Prague Castle and the Old Town Square. The hostel also boasts a Belushi’s Restaurant, one of the town’s more popular hang out spots for good food, refreshing Czech beer & cocktails, international sports and live music.
Not only is Mosaic House friendly to the wallet, it’s also friendly to the environment. Mosaic features some of the most sophisticated green technology in the hospitality industry, being the first hotel in the Czech Republic to use 100% renewable-source electricity, 100% biogas, and a water recycling unit with heat recuperation technology.
A few minutes down the road, you’ll find another top-rated hostel in Prague, the Czech Inn ( http://www.czech-inn.com/ ) with it’s state of the art facilities, ultra-modern design, and relaxed atmosphere. The Czech Inn has bigger, comfier beds, helpful staff and a constant calendar of international event nights, inviting guests from all over the world to gather in the hostel’s posh bar and lounge area to share their stories of travel. Free wifi, internet terminals, massive rain-head showers, and an all-you-can-eat breakfast with eggs, meats, fruits, veggies, breads, cheeses, cereals, and freshly squeezed juices are just a few of the added highlights of the Inn.
The Mosaic House and the Czech Inn, both rich in style and excellence, set the standard for top-quality accommodations in the travel industry. For this reason, Bus2alps is proud to call them our business partners. Every time we guide our guests to a weekend getaway, we make sure to take them to the best of the best, and that is why we’ll continue to have everyone rest their heads in these two great hostels of Prague.
