From Prague by Bus
The best and easiest way to get to Krumlov from Prague is by bus. Though public bus services are good, we highly recommend the bright yellow Student Agency bus that departs several times a day from the “na Knížecí” station in Prague(located above Andel Metro station). Seats do sell out fast however, so try to book ahead. For schedules, visit: www.idos.cz.
Whichever bus you take, make sure you tell the driver you want to get off at the ŠPIČÁK bus stop (pronounced schpee-chak). Once you get out at Špičák, walk up the footpath toward the small bridge that goes over the same road that the bus just drove on (aprox. 20 meters). From there, continue to walk on the bridge in the direction of the medieval tower gate. You will see our 99 signs from the bridge. Immediately after you pass through the gate turn left onto the small pedestrian-only street that is Věžní. The Hostel will be straight in front of you.
From Prague by Train
Take the train from Prague’s main train station to České Budějovice. For schedules, visit: www.idos.cz.
Once in České Budějovice you can:
A) change trains and continue to Český Krumlov (aprox. 1 hour). From the Krumlov train station, walk downhill on the street Vyšenská/tr. Míru to the bottom. Walk over the small bridge in the direction of the medieval gate and tower. Immediately after you pass through the gate, turn left onto the small pedestrian-only street that is Věžní. Hostel 99 will be straight in front of you.
B) cross the street to the bus station and take a bus to Český Krumlov (aprox. 35-40 minutes). Make sure you get off at the ŠPIČÁK bus stop. Once you get out at Špičák, follow directions posted under the section From Prague by Bus.
From Linz, Austria
Hostel 99 can recommend shuttle service to and from Linz, Austria, the main transit hub in the region. The Shuttle is by far the best way to get from Linz to Krumlov. If you would like shuttle information, just email us at
at least 24 hours prior to your arrival in Linz.
