Quick Introduction to Hostels in Prague
First things first, there is many many hostels in Prague. And we are sure, you are by now overwhelmed by the choices you could make.
This is at least how we felt. Therefore, we created this guide to walk you through the process. Let us check how much hostels in Prague are and what types you can expect.
Average price for a bed: Beds in a dorm can be as cheap as 6€ up to 20€ per night. A private room starts from 40€ up to 120€ per night.
This is a rough average to give you an idea. Prices always depend on season and holidays. Always check exact rates on Hostelworld.com or Booking.com.
Types of Hostels: You find a huge variety from crappy, cheap places to luxury hostels and everything in-between. Make sure you know what type of hostel you want. The most common are:
super budget hostels – with bad amenities and a cheap price tag
fun backpacker hostels – with average quality but for sure a fun time
quality hostels – a bit more pricey but great facilities, great to meet and usually a better location.
Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Transport in Prague: Prague is very well connected by public transport. If you stay close to a night tram route, you’ll have public transport options 24 hours a day. The old town and new town are really walk-able too.
The Old town in Prague: the Old town is the geographical centre of the city and most popular place to stay in Prague. It contains a lot of pedestrianized areas. The astronomical is there. The Charles bridge connects the Old town with the Castle. If you stay in the Prague Old Town, you should never be more than a 10 minute walk from anywhere else in the Old Town.

Things NOT to do in Prague: Yes, the city is packed with tourists. And there is a few things you can easily skip and scams you should avoid.
Most of the rooms here are shared, including a female-only dorm. There’s also the option of a double-bed private.
Guess what? Your bed will be ready-made on your arrival! That’s just the best thing in cases of arriving late and not wanting to disturb fellow travellers. After all, we do not like to make our own bed at 2am in the morning…
Just so you know: there is no curfew or weird rules here – it’s all about having fun.
The Rave Cave is an on-site bar offering up good beats and cheap drinks. Continue the party at a local club, lead by the staff.
Need a break from the city life? Chillax on a balcony, patio and in the beautiful garden.
Grab yourself a complimentary coffee and good book from the TV lounge and you’re all set.
And how about a free, home-cooked dinner?!
You heard that right: available every night. Daily day and night activities are also free. Amazing.
The Zizkov area, where Hostel One is located, is for the young and adventurous. It boasts the most bars, restaurants and cafes per square metre in the entire country!
The Old Town is a mere 15-minute walk. Trams are easily accessible, too. If I were you, I would totally walk at the very least one time. Prague is very walk-able and so pretty. It is part of your experience.

What about the Best Hostels in Prague for Solo Travellers?
Going solo doesn’t have to mean travelling alone. After all, we all love to travel on our own. It gives us the confidence we need in life. Right?
Hostels are the best type of accommodation for solo-adventurers.
If you enjoy a smaller, more intimate hostel, the go with Sir Toby’s.
Not your travel style? Here is a few more options for hostels in Prague for solo-travellers:
A very popular choice for female solo-travellers is the Sophie’s Hostel. It comes with a free buffet breakfast that actually deserves its name.
I am really not a big fan of free breakfast as it is usually oversold. But in case of Sophie’s, the breakfast is actually delicious and worth it!
The hostel has several female-only dorms. Some of them are equipped with bunk beds, others have single beds. The dorm rooms are spacious, clean and bright, so that is a big plus. A con however is the lack of the popular privacy curtains. If they would add them, this would be an outstanding place; the last touch!
Also it’s worth it to mention their several happy hours in the evening, their tours and other events like free pancakes and beer tasting.
Oh..I see we got you at BEER TASTING! Cannot judge, did the same thing!
