Top 10 Best Rated Hostels in Prague

Top 10 Best Rated 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”. Many think that to stay in a hostel you have to fit specific criteria. Most people would narrow that down to “twenty-something budget travelers 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 traveling 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 than just a bed for the night.

    I’m 50 and definitely the hostel type, even though I’m not young and smelly. 🙂

      Thats great Vince! It’s great to hear that people are breaking the stereotype of “hostellers”! Especially when there are so many amazing hostels out there these days! Why spend heaps on a hotel when a hostel can be just as god hey?

    We have a loft which we’re renovating in Wroclaw, Poland, and I’ve shared this post with my Dad who is spearheading the works, there are some pretty neat solutions in some of these photos.

    We recently stayed at Sophie’s Hostel and thought that the apartments were perfect for families too.

    Great article! It was a few years ago now that we visited Prague, but this would make me definitely consider a hostel next time!

      We are not typically hostel goers ourselves but having visited most of these I’d seriously consider it!
