Top 10 Best Hostels in Prague


I have often suggested to people visiting Prague to consider staying in a hostel. However the reply I often receive is that they aren’t the “Hosteling Type”, insinuating that to stay in a hostel you have to fit a specific criteria that most people would narrow down to “twenty something budget travellers that are loud, horny or smelly”.

Well guess what? There has been a massive change in the hostel scene over the past couple of years, with more and more boutique and luxury hostels opening up worldwide to cater to a wider travelling audience. No longer are hostels just small, stuffy dorm rooms with a single shared bathroom. Instead you’ll find more and more hostels offering private rooms with en suite bathrooms, stylish designs and luxurious facilities.

With such a vast number of hostels in Prague, it can be tricky to pick out the cream of the crop! So I have handpicked the top 10 best rated hostels in Prague based on personal experience and close recommendations, that are still budget friendly, but offer more then just a bed for the night.
