Overview of the Best Hostels in Prague
Here’s an overview of the awesome Prague hostels mentioned in this article. Scroll down if you want a full description (and more images) of each recommended hostel in Prague.
General Info on Prague Hostels
- Check out time – Check out time for most hostels in Prague is 11 am, but at some hostels, the check out time is 10 am. Some hostels offer a late check but for an extra fee. You will have to consult with them on this while you are there though. Please note that nearly every hostel in Prague offers Free Luggage storage before or after you check-in or out. But it's also worth double checking on it if you require this service.
- Free breakfast – Only some hostels in Prague include breakfast in the price. If it is included in the price this saves you on the cost of breakfast.
- Free WiFi – We all need WiFi while we travel. Every hostel will have WiFi but some won't have it in the rooms, they just have it in common areas. My advice is to read some reviews on the speed of the Wifi. There's nothing worse than a slow connection.
- Kitchen – If the hostel you are staying at has a fully equipped kitchen, you can save money by cooking your own meals. Some hostels in Prague have no kitchens, others have partially equipped kitchens and some hostels have large fully equipped kitchens with a dining area.
- Age Restrictions – With most hostels in Prague, you have to be between 18 and 39 years old, but with some youth hostel, you have to be under 35 to stay in a dorm. If you want to stay in a private room in a hostel, there are normally no age restrictions.
- Costs - Prague Hostels have some of the cheapest prices for a major city in Western/Central Europe. In bed in a dorm room starts at only €5 per night (normally in large dorm rooms), but expect to pay between €10 to €16 per night in a medium-sized dorm room (6 to 10 beds). Cheaper hostels generally have poor reviews, but some highly rated hostels are also cheap. As with all other major cities in Europe prices at the weekend or at holiday periods tend to be 20% to 40% higher. Check HostelWorld to get exact prices for your dates.
