I went to Warsaw last month to attend the UN Climate Change Conference and happened to have stayed at Emma Hostel, and I can say without any second thought that I am more than just pleased. The hostel is a traveller's paradise, especially if you are an activist or a backpacker wandering around the world. To start with, it is... More

I am vegan and I was very excited about this place. We stayed there at the beggining of August.in MARII NIKIFOROWNA room. Top Floor and no wifi.

To start from the good things- stuff is friendly, location is good. If you are a person who spends 30minutes taking shower - well, if you like cold water, you can still do it at Emma. The temperature of the water changes by itself. So once you have hot water and 20sec later it's freezing cold. The temperature is not... More

I'd say it's just an average warsaw hostel - It's ok to stay for a few days, but it's nothing special. Location - fine. Walking distance from the train station, located close to Marszalkowska, one of the main streets of Warsaw. Staff was fine - kind and helpful. It's owned by vegetarians which means no meat inside policy - it... More

We stayed at Emma for three nights and enjoyed our stay. A comfortable walk from the central station and old town. a small grocery, pubs, and various restaurants are all close by. The rooms and bath are very clean and Eco-friendly. Would recommend and stay here again.
