Coworking spaces in Prague have rapidly evolved from shared offices with empty desks, an internet connection, and a corner coffee machine. A lot of energy and capital has been employed to develop co-working spaces that represent the future of working — some even include amenities like sleeping boxes, VR rooms, gyms, and an on-staff “happiness manager.”

In Prague in 2019 alone, several notable new co-working spaces opened. Among them, Spaces, spread over 3,500,000 square meters and a roof with castle views, WeWork, and Hubhub. In 2020, ImpactHub, Prague’s largest co-working network celebrated 10 years.

With Prague gaining traction as a major co-working capital, how to choose the best one for you?

Choosing the best co-working space in Prague

Choosing a co-working space is a matter of finding the best fit, says Robert Vlach founder of the freelance community Navolnenoze.cz and author of The Freelance Way. “For an expat or an independent professional, the choice of a coworking space would likely be focused on location and people,” he says.

For those located outside of Prague, Vlach also mentions the opening of Telegraph Hub in Olomouc as a major contribution to the Czech coworking scene, while Retreat.cz launched this year — a rural a coworking haven for a socially distant era.

Vlach suggests shopping around before you choose a shared office space: “I would advise anyone to visit two or three places before committing yourself to becoming a member,” he says. “Use a free-day pass wherever available to taste the community vibe — how friendly coworkers are, if it’s not too busy or dull for you, etc.”

Some of Vlach’s personal recommendations include Impact Hub K10, Sněmovní 7, Opero and Paper Hub in Paralelni Polis, though the city has many to choose from.

How much do they cost?

How much you’ll pay for a co-working space depends on a lot of factors. Number of hours per month is the most important element. The location and the type of space also figure in. A round-the-clock dedicated office in a restored historical building will cost a lot more than a flexible desk in a former warehouse.

Some places offer only month memberships, while others have options for short-term use. Flexible desks or hot desks on average are 60–200 CZK per hour or 200–400 CZK for a day pass while meeting rooms start at around 1,000 CZK an hour for something basic up to many times that for something in a more impressively decorated space.
