Insider Tip

Sometimes they offer breakfast, and sometimes they don't, so enquire upon arrival.

Cosmopole Hostel

This large hostel has some great views over the city from its top floor terrace, kitchen, and common area. The dorms are good and generally comfortable, and the location is pretty good as it's close to old town. With only dorms, younger budget travelers will have a good time here exploring the city and meeting other guests.

The Facilities

Dorm Bed $14.85
Dorms come in a variety of sizes from 4 beds up to 12 beds, and a female-only dorm option is available, too. All bathrooms are on the hallway. Dorms have lockers that are large enough for all of your stuff in a backpack, but might be too skinny for a larger suitcase.
The bathrooms here at the Cosmopole Hostel are nice, modern, and kept clean. They are large and spacious, and can usually accommodate all of the guests. Towels and hair dryers can be obtained from the front desk for a small fee if you didn't bring your own.
Common Areas
The top floor of the hostel has been turned into the common area. Here you'll find several areas. First is a nice outdoor patio terrace area with tables and great views. During warmer months, this is a nice spot to enjoy a drink or chat with other guests. Next is the communal kitchen where you can cook your own meals or have breakfast. Finally, the seating area has large tables for guests to hang out along with a pool table.
Outdoor Space
The rooftop terrace is a great place to hang out and enjoy the views over Prague in warmer months.

The Location

New Town
What's Nearby?
Located on the edge of old town and new town, this hostel is not far from everything that the historic city center of Prague has to offer.

Also, the great neighborhood of new town is nearby with plenty of shopping and restaurants.
Nearby Transportation
A tram line runs right near the hostel, allowing you to get around central Prague easily if you don't want to walk. The metro station is also just a few blocks away (line B).
