Ranking the best houses in Hogwarts

If you are a Harry Potter fan then you must know all about the Hogwarts school of magic, the magical place where people lean spells, potions, and all sorts of other magic. As you know, Hogwarts has four houses and they all have their good and bad sides. Which one is the best? We are going to rank them starting with the worst.

4. Ravenclaw

This is the house of the intellectuals who are witty but they are also quite competitive. The latter trait leads them to stab each other in the back from time to time, which is not a characteristic that the ideal Hogwart house should have.

In the Harry Potter books, the Ravenclaw mascot is the eagle but in the movies it is a raven. Even the robes change from blue and bronze in the books to blue and silver in the movies Why is it so confusing?

3. Slytherin

This is the home of the cunning students who are also mischievous. If anything goes wrong in the school, these are the people who are most likely to be responsible. Slytherins are go-getters and will do whatever it takes to get what they want. They are thick-skinned and do not mind taking the blame. Plus, Merlin was a member of this house.

Even with all these good traits, there is a reason why the Slytherin ranks third, not first – it has a bad history. Most of the dark wizards and witches came from this house.

2. Gryffindor

Gryffindors are some of the best people, and are known for their courage and for being daring. They also exhibit chivalry and follow their hearts. Gryffindors are not scared of anything and will do what they think is right without a second thought.

On the downside, Gryffindor houses people who are outright foolish. They usually get themselves into trouble and find it hard to get themselves out of the sticky situations they get themselves into. These silly mistakes cost them the first position on this list.

Ranking the best houses in Hogwarts


This is the best house in Hogwarts. It is known for being home to hardworking, dedicated, and loyal people. They are welcoming and patient people who love everyone. There are people of varying traits in this house, which gives it a good balance.

Hufflepuffs have been leading in the Hogwarts house ranks for a long time. In both the books and the movies, this is the house that has maintained positive traits all throughout. Since Hogwarts was founded, this house has been the very best, without any bad history. However, Hufflepuff has its fair share of haters, perhaps since Hufflepuffs are not known to be as cunning as the other houses.

There you have it. In this particular ranking of the Hogwarts houses, Hufflepuff takes the day. Of course, Hogwarts is an imaginary school and everyone has a different opinion on the matter, so there is no true answer as to which Hogwarts house is the best. In fact, everyone thinks that their own house is the greatest of them all.
