The 3 best hostels in Prague
Are you ready? Let’s go!
- Mosaic House – the 5 Star Hostel
- Sir Toby’s – stylish place
- Hostel One Prague – the backpackers choice
1. Mosaic House (Castle views and karaoke)
Mosaic House is a unique Eco and Design hostel in the new town of Prague. Oh no, wait.
We should it put in a different way: Mosaic House is the ONLY 5 Star Hostel in Prague!
The atmosphere is buzzing, there is a fantastic team and events are always happening here – no wonder it’s a 5 Star Hostel.
If you decide to stay here, you’ll be supporting a hostel that works on 0% emission – wow!
Sounds boring? Well okay okay…
How about Karaoke? a budget in-house restaurant? Live concerts? Parties?
I see, we got your attention.
Mosaic House is seriously the absolute best hostel in Prague for solo-travellers, couples, backpackers and groups.
Even families can go with the hotel-section of the property and sleep int the loft apartment with a castles view.
This property has a total of 55 rooms, 42 of which are shared.
A great place to mingle with other fellow travelers.
It should be obvious that every type of room is available, but just so you know you can choose between:
- Private rooms
- Small mixed dorms
- Large mixed dorms
- Female-only dorms
- even Apartments
Each private room has a unique touch of something artsy: a special painting, a quirky photograph, or a stylish wall decor. The private rooms are separated from the dorms.
The apartments on the top are high-end and fantastic rooms to stay in!
And we mean: High-end!
You enjoy a terrace with a castles view.
This is seriously the coolest hostel in Prague for a romantic yet party-ish, social getaway.
Another big plus: All the events-area is downstairs. If you prefer having a rest, just walk up to your room and you will sleep like a baby without any noise!
Mosaic understands your needs. So expect all of the usual inclusion such as:
- plug and, of course,
- free and fast WiFi.
Personal additions = extra comfort.
Everyone has access to the common kitchen and living room. Yet for those days you don’t want to cook just go to the on-site restaurant and bar: La Loca. Restaurants are generally cheap in Prague anyway, so it’s a good spot to eat-out. Especially the food in la Local is fantastic.
We had pasta here. YUMMY!
There are many social activities taking place here:
- karaoke nights,
- quiz games,
- retro video disco parties…
La Loca is an on-site restaurant come music bar come lounge. What can’t you do here? Not a lot!
- La Loca by day: eat amazing food and chat with fellow travellers
- La Loca by night: grab a beer, dance to live music and sing your heart out at karaoke
It’s safe to say that Mosaic House also acts as a great party hostel in Prague.
The motto here is
One house, 1000 memories.

Join in on family dinners and afternoon beer pong – there’s a well-stocked beer fridge in the kitchen.
Laze in the lounge with a movie to cure your headache the morning after the night before.
You’ll be slap bang in the centre of the Old Town so 24-hour pizza and kebabs are a stone’s throw away.
What about the best hostels in Prague for Solo Travellers?
Going solo doesn’t have to mean travelling alone.
As said in the beginning, the Mosaic House would be my first choice when traveling solo to Prague.
Here is a few more options for hostels in Prague for solo-travellers.
The Roadhouse Prague
To ensure you make great friends and socialise, have a look at The Roadhouse Prague – the sister hostel of The Madhouse.
This is strictly a social hostel minus the party element.
Get involved in daily activities such as dinner nights and exploring the sights.
The social spaces are designed for lazy, intimate times perfect for personal downtime and friendly interaction with both staff and backpackers alike.

Pause from the hectic rythm of travelling and relax at DREAM Hostel Prague.
This gorgeous design hostel has spaces for solo travellers to meet others and do their own thing.

There are a range of rooms including an 8-bed female dorm and private options. The dorms come with privacy curtains. Yipee!
It’s centrally located – not far from Wenceslas Square – on a street which literally translates to ‘stripped pants’. We think this suits the quirky hostel vibe perfectly.
What are the safest hostels in Prague?
Safety is, of course, paramount whilst travelling the world.
Nobody wants to lose their passport or get into any trouble.
We would never suggest a hostel to you that we do not consider safe.
Nevertheless, hostel are really as safe as you make them. As said, my best choice would be Mosaic House.
It is located in New Town, just a 7 minutes walk from Old Town. The area is super safe!
