Good location just not very clean


The cheapest hostel I've stayed at while in Europe. It wasn't the best place I've stayed at, I've paid double for worse places. Value for money! I stayed in a private room the first few nights which is in a separate building up stairs and you have three doors to unlock - great security. Very quiet in the building, no one around. Facilities are good and staff are friendly and helpful. I then stayed in a dorm and the beds where great. Not a party hostel though and not much atmosphere.


I stayed here with three friends for two nights in the 4 person private. The apartment itself was quite nice, it was clean and had what was needed. The hostel is close enough to the min town you can walk but it is about a 15 min walk to get to the main parts of the city, but that was not a problem for us so it was fine. However the staff was not very helpful. They did not seem educated on the city and we had some that were actually quite rude. Overall a decent hostel though.


We spent three nights in Emma Hostel with my boyfriend. Our private double bed room was in a separate building from the reception-building. We shared a big bathroom and a well equipped kitchen with 4 other rooms, it was very comfortable. The room was clean and nice. The location is perfect, but only residents are allowed to park on the street, so you have to pay for a garage. The hostel organizes it for you.


it is just good because it's cheap. staff was so cold. there was no friendly atmosphere. no social places and small rooms. location was good. you can walk trough the river or you can take the tram near the dancing building.


The location is the best thing of that hostel, also the price, of course. You pay nearly nothing, so that's what you get for it. The hostel is not the best, but it has everything you need to stay there few days and sleep. They offer you hairdryers (good for girls), and the sheets don't seem to be very clean, the toilets could be better but it's okay. It's as warm as needed, even the hot water in the showers it's not working sometimes.. Don't forget to bring flip-flops! ;)


I really enjoyed my days there! The price is okay, and the facilities and everything it's so good! The free breakfast is a very good point, the room was very clean, and even it was of 18 people it was so good. The beds have lights, plugs, and courtains. The kitchen is quite small, but it has everything (sofas, tv..) The location is also good, you have the metro station (black line) and bus in front of the hostel, and there are lots of connections of night buses to get there afterparty!


We supposed to stay for 2 nights. Unclean bed sheets and pillows. The air flow was really bad. There was strange smell in the hostel. The cleanliness is really unacceptable so we decided to canceled for the second day. Then the staff show us another room which was better. It was ridiculous that we got a unclean room at first. Yet, we cannot receive any return for the cancellation. Don't save a small amount of money. There are many other good hostels around.


This hostel is very very economical. But the facilities are pathetic. The toilets do not have proper latches and the shower area does not have a door. The ground floor rooms are pretty unsafe since the passers by can easily break open the window and steal your things. Overall, it was not that great an experience.


Nice place, very comfortable. Everything is good.


Very clean hostel, owner speaks good English. Very easy metro ride away from the main train station, the airport, and the Castle district hill. It was also right next to the Church of Sts. Cyril and Methodius, where Jozef Gabcik and Jan Kubis, the assassins of Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi "Butcher of Prague" staged their last stand. There is a memorial to them in the church, so anyone remotely interested in WWII should check it out.


Great location & staff were helpful. Cheap hostel, but you don't get much for your money. Beds aren't great, only 3 toilets & 2 showers for men, & none of the locks work properly on any of the toilets. Also there is a lack of sockets in the rooms.


Great position, easy to get to from the airport and great for visit the city by foot. The hostel is in a historic building, adapted to create more rooms. Rooms basic but complete. The only flaw is the cleaning of the common areas, probably caused by the carelessness of the other guests.

Poor WIFI connections. Noisy beds. Nobody hangs out in the common area. Nevertheless, this hotel is very convenient since it is close to other attractions.
