This hostel is an amazing place to stay in Prague! The bus stop is just in front of the hostel, the tram stop is about 4 min walk - but you can walk all the way to the centre as well. The hostel provides free WiFi & even free breakfast. But the best thing about it is for sure the... More

Hi, me and my girlfriend stayed there for three nights in the double room at the beginning of March 2015. Both the hostel and the rooms were really cosy and clean, We loved the paintings and all the decorations, there was some kind of special atmosphere as in the real hostel for backpackers should be. There is free wifi, free... More

Great place, great location (though tricky to find, I persisted and landed on treasure) so do not miss this experience! If I had more time in my travel schedule I would have stayed longer !!! Thanks and see you soon Elf Hostel !

The area is really bad, anywhere you want to go you have to walk under a viaduct. It's kind of pickpocket central. This neighbourhood used to be really cool, but now it's very decadent. You could stay in more happening areas, like vinograd, paying less, or in more central areas again paying less. The hostel itself is very empty. Found... More

This hostel wasn't good to stay with. It's not walking distance from the city centre (there's a viaduct in the middle of the way), so you have to spend with a bus, and it was quite dirty. The receptionists were rude. But the worst thing happened at check out. They were offering discounts to people willing to give good reviews... More

Terrible location, had to walk a million stairs and take a tram to go anywhere. Could have stayed in a better place for the same money. Dorms were very dusty, they were not cleaned during the whole time I was there. Too empty to be a party hostel, too noisy to be a place to relax. But the worst is... More

I was staying in hostel elf in the beginning of the month and I had a terrible time there. To start, is not as close as the city centre as it seems. You can't walk to old town square because of the viaducts in the way, so you have to get public transportation to get there. It adds to the... More

Well, where do I start? I first arrived in Prague with some friends hoping to have a great time. As for te city it was everything we expected and more. As for the hostel, god, we were very disapointed. At our very arrival a friend had an alergic crisis due the dirtyness of the room. We promptly asked at the... More

Well, just to make it clear...you were a part of project called AIESES , which is a worldwide project, that our hostel supports as we found many friends between them! Aiesec pays us 4.5 EUR per night, which in winter barely covers city tax, fees, electricity, water etc. but I fully understand that this is not your problem and you... More

We got to Hostel Elf and our room was very dirty. My friend was having an allergic reaction because of the amount of dust. We found a Pepsi can under the bed still half full, socks that didn't belong to anyone (the guys have been here for almost three weeks), a huge amount of rests of food. The room just... More

I visited this hostel January 2015 for 3 nights with my 4 best friends (girls all in our late 20s) we had a great time. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Great value for money at 12.50 euro a night for a 6 bed dorm. Very clean. Free tea and coffee all day. Cheap alcohol on the premises. Breakfast not... More
