Strahov - student appartments/hostels
You'd pay around $6-9 per room and night(doublebed).(Depends on whether you are a student or not).
Look, this is a cheap place. So do not expect much. A group of 12 buildings, each with 6 floors, each floor 40 doublebed rooms. No breakfast, not cosy. Bathroom and toilette shared (6 showers and 8 toilettes on each floor). It is the location that matters. On a hill, you walk 5 min and you have Prague in front of your eyes. Prague Castle 15 min walking (slow) away. Shopping center 20 mins walking, 15 mins when you combine walking and tram. In the Strahov area, there are couple of pubs where you can eat and pretty much each building has a club, student bar or disco, food shop in the same area, swimming pool and sport area near by and observatory in the gardens. You can get there by bus (no.176 from Charles square, 217 from Dejvicka metro station) or by railway (from Ujezd - near Malostranske square). From the railway you have a wonderful view on the Prague Castle.
If you can afford it and want to stay in nicer and cosier place, then ResindenceTrinidad can be the right place for you.
$130 per night per room
Being a bath-freak I chose a room with large bathroom and it was GREAT. Huge, rounded bath-tub, the whole place in Ancient-Egypt style... lovely. Great place to spend a romantic/relaxing weekend.
Actually I was on a train with some friends and a lady that worked on the train told us she had a friend that could meet us at the train station and offer us a place to stay. We were a little skeptical at first, but we ended up getting a couple of nice apartments and we paid less than $15 per night per person. It worked out great since we hadn't planned ahead for accomodations.
Book your accommodation early. We didn't book anything and arrived around lunch time.
We figured since it was late September we wouldn't need to book...WRONG! Apparently a demonstration in Prague wasn't helping with our accommodation hunt either... We almost decided to leave when we finally found a place to stay...I wouldn't recommend walking around with your backpack trying to find a place! It is not the best thing we did on our trip! ;)
I stayed at a youth hostel that was a train ride away. Pretty convenient though.
There is a woman who cooks dinner but you must order in advance. She gets really mad if you want to be added at the 'last second'.
There are several hostles on the hill near the stadium. 2 to a room and very cheap (about $8 US when I was there in 98). Public bathroom and shower. Some have bars and a decent nightlife. Open all night.
$8 us i think.

Have you ever wanted to stay in a prison? Well, now you can. The Pension Unitas was formerly the Secret Police prison; in fact, Vaclav Havel once spent a little time here (non-voluntarily). The surly staff (probably former guards) will grunt at you and give you a questionable breakfast, but there's something pretty bloody cool about staying in a cell. Plus, the location is tremendous, and the costs are right reasonable.
I don't know why they painted the bars pink. I have no idea whatsoever. I can only assume that they weren't pink back in the prison days...
We staid at a private appartment. There lots of this kinda accommodation in Prague. Very cheap and
very compfortable to stay. Also, one of the ways to get to know local people. The best advises on what
to see, where to go, etc.. come from them, naturally.
This used to be a Czech secret police jail. Some years ago, Vaclav Havel, president of the Czech Republic, was held here for a day in room number P6.
Quite expensive but perfectly situated on Wenceslas Ave.
Just a walk from all points of interest.
