New Town town-hall, venue of the Summer School

We know that shakuhachi players have varied social background and accommodation needs. That is why we have chosen to make a selection of available types of accommodation in the vicinity of the festival's venue, the New Town town hall. The list of hotels and hostels includes contacts, references and distance from the venue. Note that this is a mere selection not the entire list of suitable places to stay.


Hostel Le Papillon

Jungmannova 5
Praha 1

Located about 100 meters from the location, this hostel offers three different types of accommodation. Highlight of their offer is possibility to rent a room with two beds for a very low price (1200 CZK per night) compared to regular hotels - good for those who are on a low budget and demand privacy. You should not expect any extra comfort and design. Breakfast are not included, but can be ordered. Internet is provided through a computer in the lobby computer.

Hostel Kaktus

Karlovo náměstí 16
Praha 1

Located in a building just across the main street from the venue. Inspite of its inviting name, this hostel offers mainly family-style lodgings for 1-5 people, equipped with kitchenettes, toilets and showers or baths (790-990 CZK per night). The price includes free internet and breakfast. Suites for 2, 3, 4, 5 and six people are also available (1090-1290 CZK per night). Seems like a more comfortable hostel for slightly higher prices, however, with not much design.


Golden Sickle

Vodičkova 10
Praha 1

"Just across the street" from the town-hall, this hostel offers very cheap dorm style accommodation. However, there are no completely vacant rooms in the term of the Prague Shakuhachi Summer School 09 at the moment; they can accommodate you just in large dorm rooms with somebody else. They can still offer one 3 bed suite for 1600 CZK per night. The price includes free internet in the lobby, but does not include breakfast. Suites for 3, 4 and seven people are also available. It still looks like a nice place to stay for the price. - I am not sure how often this page gets updated, best is to inquire and reserve via email

About 350 meters from the Summer School's location this hotel offers nice 1-4 bed rooms for a fair price (1440 - 2880 CZK per night), breakfast included. But do not expect much of a design. Wi-Fi internet connection in all of the hotel interior. Those who were accommodated here last year were happy about the experience.
