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


in Prague, Czechia by @mappleton7yr  | 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)

What features would you like to see on Nomad List?


by @levelsio6mo 5 months ago | 3 comments

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear what you'd like me to build next on Nomad List, or any other product/feature feedback ideas you have.

It's been 6+ years now but I'm in this for the long term and with the boost remote work got last year it's even more exciting to work on Nomad List than ever.

Current roadmap is here: twitter.com/levelsio/status/1363204985488572417?s=20 and pbs.twimg.com/media/EusS9PKXEAUR8xp?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

The next products/features I have planned:

- ๐Ÿ›‚ Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers

- ๐ŸŽ“Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate

- ๐Ÿ› Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers

Thanks a lot!

List of Visa/Residency Information in Table/Spreadsheet format?


by @innovatelife7mo 6 months ago | 2 comments

As part of signing up for this website I was hoping I would come across a list of Visa and/or Residency requirements by country ideally in a table format to assist with decision making. Does anybody recommend any other websites that might present the information in this format (or Google Spreadsheet)?

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo7mo 6 months ago | 1 comment

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info1327mo 6 months ago | 4 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of?


in Germany by @clara7mo 6 months ago | 0 comments

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

June 2017: Prague or Budapest?


in Prague, Czechia by @joshua4yr 4 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 @matousvins5yr 4 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 @kathrynoh6yr 6 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.
