“Cozy and hospitable place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

I liked this hostel firstly because of the price. I am a student and the first thing I'm looking for is the way to save some money. Therefore I made up my mind on this cheap and quite attractive place.
And to tell the truth, it proved to be a bargain! The hostel is situated close to Karlovo namesti subway station, so it is very close to the center. Couple of minutes walking will bring the traveler to the Vltava embankment. You can walk from there either to Karluv most or to Vaclavske namesti with museum.
The hostel itself is quite clean and pleasant. It has several rooms for men and women separately and couple of mixed rooms, showers and a kitchen in the basement (which I didn't like very much, not that clean and accurate). There are lockers and toilette tables. I lacked some kind of wardrobe and night tables as well. Among the drawbacks I would mention the additional charge for towels. But still reasonable price and advantageous location make this hostel a place to stay for youngsters.

Really good hostel for reasonable price. The rooms are only suitable for sleep (so spend all of your time in the city). At weekend the commom places are full with guest. Kitchen and bathroom are under average, but it depends on your needs. The hostel near to the dancing house and 5-10 minutes walk from city center. The big shoops are so close also. The WIFI is quite good. The service is so kind, and helpfull.

Room Tip: cheaper room is not so equipped... Book in advance and check the photoes.

I was at this hostel with two other friends, we all loved it! The price is great and the hotel is well located, 15 minute walk from old town, so you can pretty much walk from the hotel to all the interesting places in Prague, the guys from the front desk were really helpfull for everything, We had to check out a 10:30am but our flight was at 21:30 so we had almost all day to make some othe tour in the city, that was not a problem at all, they have a room for luggage and you can leave it there without any charge, so that really worked for us! I would defenitely go back! Thanks guys!

Location is great. 5 minutes to Charles bridge with plenty of restaurants and bars (and internet cafes) nearby. Internet wifi connection is free and fast. Computers are available 24/7. If you travel by car, parking sucks. There's a garage but it costs about 22 euros for a day (24 hours, if you pay with crowns it is cheaper). Rooms are kind of small and a little dark with not many outlets, beds are squeaky. If you get a room in the basement next to the loungs, you will not sleep bc people are loud downstairs. For the cost, it's okay. You get what you pay for.

It is good for budget travellers who want cheap lodging..The location is well connected by tram and underground..The only issue for me is the room is very small and dark..There is also lounge for everyone to hang out

If you are looking for a cheap, clean and well located place to stay in Prague then you will not be disappointed with Hostel Emma. I stayed here on a stag do and found the 24 hour reception useful, liked the free internet and our dorm room was clean. If you are going on a couples retreat or after a hotel with any kind of facilities this is not for you however if you are going with the intention of staying somewhere inexpensive and in a good location then this place is for you.
