Solid Hostel. Good rooms, very nice garden. Helpful staff. It could have been when we went, but there wasn't a huge amount of meeting other travellers, 15 minute walk to the square, so not terribly positioned.

I am a female travelling alone and I had a wonderful time here. Very cozy and sociable atmosphere. The staff is super helpful and awesome. Amazing free all-you-can eat breakfasts, and free dinner bbqs three nights a week. Should note that it is a 20 minute walk from central city square. But it is in a very cool neighbourhood with...

if your travelling then this is the place to go. Good clean rooms, good location and a really great way to meet people. Shared bathrooms but never had to wait and were clean. They put on a free BBQ and had half price beer deals! A nice roof terrace which is a great place to sit and meet other travellers.... More

This hostel had a really relaxed vibe and was great to stay in. The rooms were clean and spacious and beds were comfortable. Showers and bathrooms were accessible and clean. The kitchen facilities were great and the free breakfast (traditional European breakfast of bread with meat/cheese/spreads) was good. The great thing about the hostel was the communal area; the outdoor... More

Loved this place, everyone was super friendly so it was easy to make friends. Good location with cheap taxis in prague that the receptionists have numbers for. Rooms seemed pretty clean and the beds were as comfy as can be. Showers were decent and were cleaned regularly. Definitely consider visiting Cross Club and the five story club when in prague.

I definitely recommend this hostel, the staff are really helpful and available at all times, the rooms and bathrooms are clean and the atmosphere is great. It is a very social hostel, they have free bbq once a week, and happy hour and a bi terrace outdoors where it is very easy to meet other travellers. Great experience, highly recommended~

We stayed two nights at the Hostel Elf near the bus and train station in Prague. Our problem, however, was that we arrived by car. It is nearly impossible to find parking in Prague, as most of the zones are 'blue zones', meaning that they're not available for tourists. The staff was friendly and helpful - 24 hours a day....

Would definetly recommend this hostel, staff were helpful and happy the place is cleaned regularly and has all the facilities. Great place to meet pekoe and there is a decent breakfast each morning. The only slight downside is the location, which is a 20min walk from the city center and there is not a lot of shops in close proximity... More

Perfect place to stay for backpackers! You get a simple free breakfast with lots of coffee or tea, free barbecue 3 nights a week, nice staff, good atmosphere, wifi, shower, what more could you need! 20-30 min walk to old town but that's not bad at all! Close to many grocery stores! Would stay again!
