Opero is the all-encompassing coworking space in Prague and a top choice on our list!

Source: OPERO

Opero is a true upscale space that is a rarity among coworking spaces. It is furnished to perfection, so if your surroundings influence your work motivation, this the place for you to be! It has to offer anything and everything you could possibly need in a coworking space, including but not limited to:

  • Excellent connectivity
  • Printing and copying services
  • Administration services
  • Private offices
  • Office registration package
  • Hot and dedicated desks
  • Meeting room
  • On-site cafe
  • Apple TV
  • Outdoor terrace
  • Skype room

Opero is a creativity-inspiring space designed to accommodate seasoned professionals. It has recently started to attract the attention of digital nomads and freelancers as well. You will be able to cowork with and learn from experts in various fields in this place. 

It is in the vicinity of Old Town Square, so it is easily found by foreigners and locals alike. It is wheelchair accessible and welcoming to pets. The only stumbling block is that it may be slightly too pricey for the average coworker, especially because it only offers monthly and yearly membership packages.

Locus Workspace is the ultimate English-speaking coworking space in Prague!

Source: Locus Workspace

Locus Workspace is situated at the heart of Prague, which is a crossroads for many international travelers, so Locus is the place where they meet!

The language that is spoken inside this coworking space itself and in which all of the events are held is English, so this spot is where most digital nomads meet when they come to Prague. If you are interested in expanding your network to an international audience and finding like-minded foreign professionals to connect with, Locus Workspace is the right choice for you!

Join Locus’ Slack members’ channel and attend regular events, such as Hump Day Fridays or Writers’ Critique Nights, to become a part of this international community. In case you are considering moving to Prague, you will also have a chance to meet many expats here who can help ease your transition into your new environment.

The downside is that the place is a rather compact one, and the meeting room can get a bit snug. There are also no private offices at the moment.

Coffice Prague is the ideal coworking space for Latin culture aficionados!

Source: Coffice Prague

Coffice Prague is another coworking hub in the very center of the city. As opposed to the previous spot on our list, Coffice is a huge space. On its 240 square meters, it has:

    1. The Main Room with hot desk seats, the cafe, the podium, and the chilling area
    2. The Shared Office with dedicated desks
    3. The Conference Room that can host up to ten people
  • An outdoor garden

This space was founded by Argentinian entrepreneurs, so they keep quite a lively Latino atmosphere here. It is the perfect spot to hone your Spanish or Portuguese language skills. The membership will also grant you access to their offices in Brazil and Argentina. Travel goals, anyone?

Part coworking space and part a cafe, Coffice lets you work until about 6 pm, and then — the fun begins! Life is too short to be wasted away grinding, so leave it up to Coffice to keep you entertained as well! Whether it is exhibitions, yoga classes, or live music evenings, they will keep you coming back for more events.

The trouble with this coworking spot is that it is slightly hard to find the first time you come around. They are in the process of getting permits to install street signs and pointers. Until then, give them a call or message them on WhatsApp if you need help finding the address.

SVĚT-HUB is the hippest coworking spot on our list!

Source: SVĚT-HUB

SVĚT-HUB has offices just minutes away from Náměstí Míru, making it available to anyone who steps foot in downtown Prague. 

What makes this place stand out from the crowd is the type of clientele that it attracts. It is a meeting place for youngsters who are immersed in the world of blogging, IT, developing, programming, and similar professions. It inspires a casual, informal atmosphere that is ideal for exchanging ideas. 

The place hosts numerous events, such as exhibitions, book nights, brand evenings, and gastronomic events.

Paper Hub is the most tech-forward coworking space in Prague!

Source: Paper Hub

Paper Hub is the only coworking space in the world that charges its fees only in cryptocurrencies. You will be required to pay in either bitcoin or litecoin, so if you are distrustful towards such an approach, you may want to skip this place.

If you do decide to venture this unconventional payment method, the staff will guide you through it if you are a complete novice. You will need to download a special wallet app on your smartphone, which you will use to pay your fee. There is an on-site bitcoin ATM, which will convert your CZK cash to bitcoin.

Another thing that singles this coworking spot from a sea of others is its prototype studio — Maker’s Lab. If you are interested in 3D printing, this is the place where you can master it.

There is a famous Bitcoin Cafe on-site, where you can get a complimentary tea, coffee, or energy drink, and lots more that you can pay for — you guessed it — only in crypto money!

Node5 is an excellent choice for small teams and startups!

Source: Node5

Node5 was established in an abandoned factory in 2012 and has been growing ever since. It is currently one of the largest coworking spaces in Prague. Node5 caters to independent professionals, digital nomads, freelancers, small companies, and startups. It focuses on tech startups, in particular. Those companies have Accelerator programs available for them due to the partnership Node5 has with StartUp Yard. 

But don’t think this coworking space will only attract a hacker crowd, as you can choose a package that most suits your business needs. You can hop in daily when the need arises, host a workshop, or hold a meeting every once in a while. Alternatively, you can purchase full membership on a monthly basis and also enjoy the space round the clock whenever it suits you.

Among its many amenities, you will have access to a well-equipped kitchen, on-site showers, a chill-out lounge area, and catering services. This spot is also cat- and dog-friendly, so you can bring your pet to work with you! It is also a great conversation starter to get you chatting up with other members.

The only thing to complain about is that the offices of Node5 are somewhat away from the city center. Potential members may be discouraged by that fact, but if you are in need of strong support for growing your business, you may want to overlook that detail. Node5 is the place to be for those just starting out in Prague.

DESK ROOM is the coworking center we liked the least in Prague!

Source: DESK ROOM

DESK ROOM is located in two locations in the Czech Republic — Prague and Pardubice. Its Prague offices are set up on the Mala Strana, the historical center, that is quite a distance from the business-oriented downtown.

This coworking space has private offices and meeting rooms. It also offers postal services and video conferencing to its members. Apart from that, there is a lounge area for break-time and a kitchen that provides free coffee.

Although there are no particularly negative online reviews about this coworking center, we were quite underwhelmed by it. It leaves much to be desired in terms of the amenities it offers to its members. There is no conference room or Skype or phone sound-proof booth. It seems like the place is not tech-forward at all as it doesn’t offer any gadgets on-site. 

The furniture is also rather old-fashioned and uncomfortable for a prolonged stay. Most of the desks are organized in the form of cubicles, which is not a creativity-inducing setting in our book.

  • Per hour: CZK 50
