14 Best Hostels in Prague

This is a guide to the Best Hostels in Prague and some of them offer very good value starting from only €8 per night for a bed in a dorm room.

Prague is one of the most magical cities in Europe with its glorious architecture dating back 800 years. It is also renowned for its buzzing nightlife, Beer Gardens, huge parks and of course its excellent beer. It has one of the best metropolitan transport networks in Europe which you can avail of to whiz you around the city anytime day or night.

General Info on Prague Hostels

Here are some things that you might want to consider before booking a hostel in Prague.

  1. Price - Prague has some of the cheapest hostel prices for a major city in Western/Central Europe. A bed in a dorm room starts at only €6 per night (normally in large dorm rooms), but expect to pay between €12 to €18 per night to stay in a medium-sized dorm room (6 to 8 beds) at a top-rated hostel.
  2. Location - Prague is a large city but the public transport system of buses, trams and the metro is one of the best in Europe. That said, it's best to stay in a central location close to the top sights and nightlife. Stare Mesto (Old Town) and Nova Mesto (New Town) are the most central locations. But you should also consider staying in a more local district such as Vinohrady, Zizkov or my personal favourite Holesovice.
  3. Amenities/Services - Every hostel offers free Wi-Fi and some hostels include breakfast in the price, but if you want more specific services be sure to do your research to find the hostel that best meets your needs.
  4. Staff - Most hostels in Prague have excellent staff. They are normally very friendly and will give you some great tips on restaurants, bars and clubs etc. But my advice is to read reviews to make sure the hostel you choose has friendly and helpful staff because rude or unhelpful staff could ruin your hostel experience.
