The historic hostel in the city center
The Mitte Hostel (meaning „middle“ in German) is located in a historical house built in the centre of Brno at 11 Panská Street in one of very few buildings that were not affected by the wide urban renewal at the end of 19th century in which the centre was rebuilt and most of the houses were demolished.
