The Best Hostels in Prague

Prague is one of the most magical cities in Europe with its glorious architecture dating back 800 years. I  have created is a list of the best hostels in Prague and some of them offer very good value starting from only €7 per night for a bed in a dorm room.

Prague is also renowned for it's buzzing nightlife, Beer Gardens, huge parks and of course its cheap and excellent beer. It has one of the best (and cheapest) metropolitan transport networks in Europe.

As Prague is one of the most popular backpacking destinations in Europe, there is a huge selection of hostels. So choosing a hostel that meets all your needs can be difficult. Obviously, hostels in the centre are going to be more expensive so my advice is to consider a hostel in a local district (such as Vinohrady, Zizkov or Holesovice) but with easy access to the centre via public transport.
