Insider Tip

Because this hostel is in the New Town area, you'll need to use local transportation to get into the old town.

Advantage Hostel

The Advantage Hostel is located in new town, which is to the south of the old town. It's also quite close to the Vinohrady neighborhood. Both new town and old town have plenty of shops, restaurants, and bars that are close to the hostel. The hostel has dorms and a variety of rooms, plus free breakfast and some nice relaxing common spaces. They also offer a number of fun activities such as walking tours, pub crawls, and other social events.

Dorms here are well-lit, spacious, and comfortable. All are from 4 to 8 beds in size, and an all-female dorm is available. Linens and lockers are included in the price of the room, too. They use the shared hallway bathrooms.
Private Rooms
Private rooms here come in a variety of sizes from 1 person rooms all the way up to larger dorm rooms for small groups. Most of the private rooms have ensuite bathrooms which are modern and comfortable. Towels are included, as are linens and housekeeping.
The bathrooms at the Advantage Hostel are modern, clean, and renovated. With plenty of space and plenty of hot water, everyone will be comfortable here.
