The Best Hostels in Prague

Prague is one of the most magical cities in Europe with it's 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 center 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 center via public transport.

All of the properties on this list are actual hostels that offer some form of dormitory accommodation. There are no hotels, guesthouses, or other types of accommodation on our list below of the best hostels in Prague, Czech Republic. Hostels have evolved greatly over the last 20 years and many are luxury hostels or to use the term "flashpacker" hostels. These usually have a very high standard of customer service and have a more contemporary design. The other main type of hostel on this list is the community lead or traditional hostel. These are usually very social and will normally have a bar or a communal area or both.
