14 Best Hostels in Prague

This is a guide to the best hostels in Prague and some of them offer very good value starting at just €8 per night for a bed in a dorm room.

Prague is one of Europe's most beautiful capitals, boasting spectacular architecture that dates back 800 years. Additionally, it is well known for its thriving nightlife, Beer Gardens, huge parks, and, of course, its excellent beer. It has one of the best urban transit systems in all of Europe, which you may utilize at any time of day or night to go around the city.

Quick Overview of the best hostels in Prague

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. The city tax was recently increased to €2 per night but on most occasions, this will be included in the price.
  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 - The majority of hostels in Prague have great staff. They are usually very friendly and will give you great recommendations for restaurants, bars, and clubs, among other things. However, my recommendation is to study reviews to ensure that the hostel you select has friendly and helpful employees, as rude or unhelpful staff might ruin your hostel experience.
