Didn’t you plonkers know you’d be away for the World Cup? ‘Doh!’ I hear you say. But don’t panic. Check-in to one of these hostels and you won’t miss a thing. Some have super huge TVs, others are setting up screens in the garden. Either way, you can sing, laugh, cheer and cry at one of these…
You can catch all the World Cup matches at Belushi’s bar beneath St Christopher’s Inn. They have plasma TV’s and decent bar food to snack on too.
Generator Hostel has big screens for the World Cup in either the G-Lounge Cafe or Generator bar. They also have £1 off selected drinks until 9pm.
The infamous Bulldog hostel is located in the Red Light district and will be showing all the games on 2 big plasma screens. They’ve done a bit of decorating recently to the jazz the place up a bit in time for the big event. Happy hour is between 8pm-9pm.
Pfefferbett Hostel has a list of World Cup themed events and it’s definitely the place to be to watch the football in Berlin. All games will be screened both outdoors on the terrace and indoors in the lounge. The bar serves the plonk and the BBQ delivers meaty treats.

Czech Inn is your chic and stylish boutique hostel and one of the hippest places to stay in Prague. They’ve got their finger on the pulse with the World Cup too. They will be showing all games on 2 LCD TVs and on 1 large projection screen in the trendy bar area. For those of you staying at their sister hostel Mosaic House, they have 3 projection screens – one of them is the largest in Prague – and also 6 smaller LCD TVs in Belushi’s bar and restaurant.
HI New York has a theatre with a super big screen where guests can watch all World Cup games. Obviously there will be a party atmosphere for the US team but the hostel will also be supporting England, France, Korea, Australia and New Zealand. HI New York is also offering guests a discount at a bar down the road.
