Best way to find a basic room/flat in Prague?


in Prague, Czechia by @mappleton | 5yr  | 16 comments

Have been stalking craigslist for weeks. Quite a few properties posted. But after sending 20 inquiries have 0 replies. Beginning to wonder if itโ€™s a city that requires on-the-ground apartment hunting. Can anyone whoโ€™s been through Prague before clue me in?

Will be there from April 10th until July. Need a basic, short-term, central room rental. Nothing fancy. Will be working from a co-working space. Under 9000 CZK seems reasonable from what Iโ€™ve seen.

P.S. If anyone else is Prague-bound this summer and room hunting, leave a note! Definitely up for sharing a place with other nomads. Or just hanging out / having co-working sessions.

Hello all :slight_smile: I donโ€™t know if it will be helpful but I found an apartment on flatio.com for my living in Prague since April 17.

I hope it will be OK, do you have any references or experiences with Flatio?

Flatio seems a bit overpriced, similar to Airbnb for monthly rentals. I found way better prices looking at Real Estate Brokers websites.

Iโ€™m also looking for insights on where locals look for apartments, if thereโ€™s anyone out there with advice :slight_smile:

You can also hang out on #nomadsโ€™ #prague channel, or exchange with other nomads and locals on Facebook Groups http://on.fb.me/1D0E9eT :smile:

A vague idea for a first meetup in May is growing :smiley:

BTW, @Jakub, thanks for the links :smile:

Hi Maggie. What do you mean by this? As far as I know, you canโ€™t exchange contact info using Airbnb PMs. So what is the reason of asking hosts about discounts when you canโ€™t actually meet him/her unless youโ€™ve officially booked?

@sergeydumik - โ€œemailingโ€ was the wrong term. I meant just messaging them directly through the Airbnb platform which you can do even if you havenโ€™t booked yet.
Airbnb actually has a built-in function where hosts can offer a special price for certain guests so works pretty seamlessly within the system.

Yea airBnB is overpriced in Prague, so ~ 50% off is fair.

I never liked P-3 โ€ฆ I lived whole time in P-7 which is ideal imo. Five minutes by tram to the Old/New Town, heaps of restaurants, cafes, supermarkets. Two parks close by, cheaper rents than P1/2/5.

Also if you like night clubs - and I mean real night clubs, not the dump for tourist in P1 than most of them is in P7 as well.

Oh shoot, just missed this & found a single room rental. Would still love a coffee meet-up & chat while weโ€™re the city though! PM when youโ€™re there.
Re: other good neighbourhoods - Iโ€™ve heard Praha 3 & 7 have great local spots.

Took the suggestion @Philippe posted above of emailing AirBnb hosts directly and asking for a lower rate. Worked like a charm - found a great place in Praha 10 for 7500 CZK. Iโ€™d reccomend hunting that way. Didnโ€™t always get great responses emailing people from the czech roommate finder sites.

Also signed up to co-work out of Impact HUB (http://www.hubpraha.cz/en/) which looks like a beautiful option if anyone is looking for a workspot too.

Hi Maggie, Iโ€™m a Czech and former real estate agent from Prague.

(havenโ€™t been home for the last 5 years but I doubt something has changed :smiley: )

Forget craigslist, nobody uses it there. But definitely not a city that requires on-the-ground apartment hunting. Everyone, including their cat & dog is online :smiley:

The best bet would be here https://www.facebook.com/groups/pronajembytu/

also http://www.spolubydlici.cz/en/ or with G Translator this http://www.chcispolubydlici.cz/ & http://www.espolubydleni.cz/podnajem-spolubydlici/praha

You may be required to pay bit more as rentals are usually for 6-12 months. Own room under 9k CZK is easy, but probably not in Prague 1. Anyway the public transport in Prague is dirt cheap, reliable and fast.

We lived in Vinohrady, meters from Vinohrady Pavilon, and it was a GREAT location.

Conceerning direct messaging, you could agree on 1 night then switch to direct renting, you could get the discount trough airbnb or you could be clever and find a way to contact directly people :slight_smile: (I used to do it all the time)

How do you ensure that you have good WiFi for working whilst travelling e.g. in places like India?

We are hoping to travel later this year and we will be working remotely - how do you ensure you get good WiFi in places such as in India where the signal isn't always great? Do you have any tips on where to go/ what equipment you have to get?

Do you prefer co-living spaces or hostels or Airbnbs?

 

by @davda1546 | 13h 12 hours ago | 5 comments

We are hoping to become nomads soon and have booked an AirBnB in September in Goa for our first destination. We are considering what would be the best option for accommodation after that. We are trying to decide between co-living spaces, hostels, or Airbnbs.

What are your experiences of accommodation in terms of the following: reliable wifi, social aspect, pricing, cleanliness, cooking facilities?

Best place in South East Asia to live for 6+ months per year


in Indonesia by @miklaskroager | 3d 2 days ago | 1 comment

We're looking for a country in South East Asia that can function as our base, mainly for tax purposes. Meaning it will have to be a place where we can stay for the 183 days required without too much hassle.

We've been looking at Thailand, but have heard that it's very hard to do visa runs etc., so what other can you recommend? Indonesia looked like a good option, but the income rate is a flat 20% and very high for the region.

How to get SMS verifications for banks while traveling?

 

by @jackgopack | 6d 6 days ago | 38 comments

Any suggestions for seamlessly receiving SMS Verifications from US financial institutions and other sites while traveling internationally continuously? Wonโ€™t keep my US Verizon account due to cost and currently plan to use local sims at each destination (T-Mobile and Project Fi are NOT an option as they terminate for continuous roaming). In summation, I wonโ€™t have a US mobile account.

Unless Iโ€™m missing something, which is very possible, this appears to be the single most complex issue Iโ€™ve encountered in my preparations, and one that no one addresses. I would greatly appreciate any possible solution that works 100% of the time. Canโ€™t afford surprises in this regard. Many Thanks! Jack.

Introduce yourself โ€” who are you, where are you and what do you do?

 

by @coffeeshopceo | 7d 6 days ago | 670 comments

tl;dr: introduce yourself in this thread.

We must all get sick of the same backpacker travel questions when we meet new friends, I know I do.

You know the ones - where are you from, whereโ€™ve you been, where are you going, what do you do, how long have you been doing it - etc.

The novelty of answering these questions wears off after maybe a week, but theyโ€™re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.

So letโ€™s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?

**

  • whatโ€™s your name?
  • where are you from?
  • how long have you been away from home?
  • what do you do?
  • where are you currently?
  • where are you going?
  • what has been memorable for you so far?
  • will you go home anytime soon?
  • what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
  • [insert your own question here]

**

No need to answer them all if you donโ€™t want to :smile:
But the more you shareโ€ฆ The merrier!

June 2017: Prague or Budapest?


in Prague, Czechia by @joshua | 3yr 3 years ago | 5 comments

Hi guys!

Iโ€™m currently in Vietnam, then heading back to Portland, Oregon for a couple months.

Itโ€™s been awhile since Iโ€™ve been to Europe, and Iโ€™ve never been to Eastern Europe.

For those who have spent time in both Prague and Budapest, is there a city you prefer over the other? I realize theyโ€™re relatively close, and I can always take weekend trips to the city that I donโ€™t choose to stay in.

Thinking I will be there for at least a month. Will be working, but Iโ€™ll also take some time off. Prefer walkability. Decent internet.

Any input or opinions on this would be great! Thanks.

What do you think about Prague as a nomad spot?


in Prague, Czechia by @matousvins | 4yr 3 years ago | 4 comments

Prague ranks very high on nomadlist, but I havenโ€™t met many nomads who spent some time there. Iโ€™m working on some pieces for Czech press and Iโ€™d like to include some of your thoughts. Can you help me a bit? Why did you chose the city? Did you like living and working in Prague? Why? What do you think would help you to enjoy it more? Were there some major problems? What was your favourite spot to work from? Did you meet some other nomads?

How to find emergency decent shortish term housing in Prague?


in Prague, Czechia by @kathrynoh | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

I booked a place in Prague for a month but, 10 days in, Iโ€™ve had to get out of there. The ownerโ€™s wife abused me for the second time today so Iโ€™ve booked into a hotel.

I am a bit reluctant to use Airbnb to find another place because this one had glowing reviews! I really need something in the next day or two for 2 or 2 1/2 weeks. If anyone knows of anywhere or even has Airbnb recommendations, Iโ€™d be grateful. I would be looking at under $50 a night ideally.
