What Do I Need To Know When Taking A Taxi In Prague?


When taking a cab in Prague, we strongly recommend phoning a reputable taxi company. If possible, avoid hailing a cab on the street. Before the journey, request a printed receipt and make sure the driver sets the meter to zero. And, of course, it’s always a good idea to carry small bills and be discrete with your belongings.
* Fare from the airport to Czech Inn is around 600-700 CZK (Or, see the Transport Service we recommend for 550 CZK.)
* Fare from main train station to Czech Inn is around 300 – 400 CZK. (Or, check out our Transport Service for 250 CZK.)
* In general, the starting rate should be 30-40 CZK, and then 28 CZK per kilometer.
* Avoid taxis that quote you higher prices than the rates stated above or that do not use a meter.

Please ask to find out if there is any availability in one of these dorms. Bathrooms, however, are either male or female. There are also several small shower and toilet rooms on the floor that are individually private.

Czech Inn does not have any age limits on the guests who can stay with us. However, in our shared dormitory rooms we can only accept guests aged between 18-39 years old. If you do not meet this criteria you are most welcome to stay in one of our great private rooms or apartments.


If We Are Travelling As A Small Group, Can We Stay Together In The Same Room?


If you wish to stay together with friends, then it is best to book a private room. If that is not possible then the next best option is to book together under one reservation. Lastly, if you booked separately but would like to stay together then email us and we will do our best to put you together, although we can not make any guarantees.

There is a non-refundable processing fee of 300 CZK and we require full non-refundable prepayment of your reservation. These payments are non-refundable in all circumstances. Please also note that we can only send these letters as a .pdf attachment via email.


Can I Make A Reservation If I Do Not Have A Credit Card?


Yes, only during the non peak season. If you do not have a credit card or cannot use one to secure your reservation, we also accept advance payment in the form of bank transfers. Or, you may make a non-confirmed reservation in which you must call or email to confirm two days before your arrival. In this case, you must also arrive by 3pm or call again to reconfirm. This option is only available in certain situations, so email us and we’ll see what we can work out for you, info@czech-inn.com

Some Final But Important Points To Remember!


Czech Inn is a hotel/hostel for travellers, not for workers. For this reason we have a 7 night maximum stay in any 3 month period in our shared dormitory rooms.
All bookings must be paid for on arrival or at the time of extension.
We do not allow check out and check in of rooms on the same day, unless there is no other option available. i.e. no bed/room hopping!
We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave if we feel they are disturbing the general operation of the hostel, other guests or our staff.
