Me and a friend were back packing around Europe and were staying in Prague for 2 nights! We booked the Emma hostel on hostelworld and it was very cheap. It is quite a long way from the train station so be aware if your carrying a large bag! It's in a superb location for the sights tho! 2 mins for the river, 5 mins from town and 10 mins to the Old Town. When we arrived the guy behind reception didn't have much English. He told us we were staying next door to the hostel at which point me and my friend gave each other a confused look!!
He led us to some large wooden doors outside, gave us our keys and let us find out our room! When we opened the door we were greeted with a building site! The building was under renovation. We were on the second floor and discovered there was no lighting in the stairways! Was very interesting in the dark!
When we arrived at our 'room' it was a converted apartment. There was a small kitchen , living area and communal bathroom and showers. We were in a very tiny room! There was a single bed, double bed and a makeshift wardrobe. The furniture was very basic but the bed was comfy! No curtains though which was random! When we arrived we saw no other people, but later on a group arrived and partied all the way through the night so didn't get much sleep!
This is a place where you have to be very open minded. It didn't matter to me and my friend that it very basic....we just wanted a place to sleep and grab a hot shower, in which we succeeded in both! This is not the place for you if you don't do basic, don't like noise and limit yourself to certain accommodation!!!
Me and my friend just giggled through it all and I'll probably never experience a place like it ever again in my life!!!
