Beware of the notorious Prague taxi-drivers
These drivers are one thing that brings real disgrace to Prague and causes problems every season, although they are easy to avoid.  First thing to do is to avoid taking taxi right on the street. There are many miscellaneous cabs going up and down the streets all around, and only a few of them belong to respectable companies as Halo-Taxi, Profi-Taxi or AAA. So it could simply happen that you will bump into a bad guy. And i guarantee you really will! To evade all these troubles phone straight to the central office of one of the companies quoted above and ask them for a cab. This service is without any extra charge - you will pay just for the call (common local call).

The Prague telephone numbers are :

AAA Taxi 233113311
Halo Taxi 244114411
Profi Taxi 261314151

 



If you need to take a taxi on the street for any reason, just deal with taxi-driver following these instructions:

1. The price per kilometre has to be written on the front doors of a cab
2. Tell the driver exactly where you want to go
3. Ask him for a price before you get on.
4. If the price seems to be higher than you expected demand a receipt. Every car must have a printer and driver
    must give you a signed receipt, otherwise YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY ANYTHING - that is the law. Check if the
    the price on the receipt is the same as the one demanded by a taxi-driver. Having this you can always prove what
    happened
5. The golden rule is - if the driver behaves somehow strange just tell him NO and take another cab

Parking in Prague

Prague is divided into 10 districts, where (following transport rules) you can park on streets with no charge, except for Prague 1. The district of Prague 1 encloses the very centre of Prague and you mast pay a parking fee to park there.
So you can choose:


1. TO PARK ON THE STREETS - you can easily park anywhere the transport rules allow it but in case of Prague 1 you have to pay the parking charge.
Warning: considering plenty of cars are stolen or robbed every year, please do not underestimate this hazard and never leave any valuables or expensive looking items in your car - the risk of robbery will then be considerably lower! The hostel is located very near the border enclosing Prague 1, so you can easily avoid paying any parking fee.

2. TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF GUARDED PARKING PLACES - this is definitely the best selection if the main viewpoint is security of your vehicle. The two parking places of this sort are quite near either end of Charles Bridge (it also means near the hostel), so you shouldn't have a problem finding them. The first one is just on Malostrenske namesti (square) and the second one - the underground one - has its entrance between the river Vltava and the building of the Rudolfinum (the concert hall and the gallery - near the metro-station Staromestska).
