Dakura Hostel: Vintage Accommodation in Prague
Last Updated on May 26, 2018 by Anita Hendrieka
Dakura hostel in Prague is one of the most unique accommodation options I have stayed in. Located near the castle, Dakura hostel is one of the best in the city for many reasons. I had the pleasure of staying at Dakura for a few nights to check it out. I was pleasantly surprised, from the antique aspect to the friendly staff, I had a very pleasant stay. Here’s a little bit more about this gem of a hostel in the bustling and thriving city of Prague.
The hostel is set in a building that was used as a former municipal bath that was built in 1922. The hostel is in two sections because of this but joined in the middle because of the two sections (men and women). This gives the hostel a unique history unlike any other hostel in the city. There are 60 private rooms as well as a dorm which is all set on 5 floors. My room was spacious and had all the facilities you would need: bed, desk, shower and the toilet facilities were just down the hall. Throughout the building, there are unique vintage interiors scattered giving it that vintage feel. From furniture to posters, if you love vintage you will love Dakura!
The facilities in the hostel included multiple kitchens, bathrooms and hangout sections. The overall feel of Dakura is a homely feel. They also offer a free walking tour which is a great introduction to Prague. There is also a café onsite so if you need your morning coffee fix they have you sorted! Everything at the hostel was clean and tidy.
Dakura is only a quick walk away from the castle and some marvellous views of the city. You can also quickly catch public transport into the Old Town and the other side of Prague. I walked into the Old Town and it was a lovely walk. It took about 40 minutes or so. I really liked this area because it felt a bit more authentically Prague and less touristy than the Old Town. There are great restaurants and bars nearby too.
If you’re coming to Prague this year I highly recommend coming to this hostel! It’s in a fantastic location, the staff are super friendly and it’s a unique accommodation option in the city.
This stay was sponsored by Dakura but as always, all opinions are my own. I would like to thank Dakura for having me!
