Located in a beautiful old building over in the southeastern side of the city, the Czech Inn is one of the best-rated hostels in Prague and is also one of the most affordable. You can stay really cheaply at this Prague hostel, so if you're looking to stretch your budget to the maximum and save your money for trips around the city, this is a good option to choose, but it is a little distance from some of the many landmarks.
