To arrive from the airport, consider taking the 119 bus to the terminate station (Nádraží Veleslavín – green Metro A-line) and then take the metro in the direction to Nemocnice Motol. The Hvězda Dormitory (Zvoníčkova 5, 162 00 Praha 6) is located next to Petřiny metro station (one stop away from Nádraží Veleslavín.)

To arrive on time from the dorm to the “Profesní dům”, we recommend taking the direct metro “A” (green) line from Petřiny to Malostranská and then walk 5 minutes directly to the premises. Again, for your convenience, use this Prague’s Public transport application https://www.dpp.cz/en.
We recommend purchasing the monthly/30 days ticket for 550 CZK (26 EUR) at the airport, railway station or at the Veleslavín metro station. It is the most convenient way to access all means of transport at all times provided by the Prague transportation company.
