This hostel was great and I would definitely stay here again. I felt safe in the hostel and there are lockers in every room. The beds were really comfortable and the noise levels were low so it was easy to get a good nights sleep. There were lots of toilets and showers so no ques in the morning. We went... More

A very friendly environment. No problems with the wifi and they serve breakfast. They provide sheets upon arrival and showers/bathrooms are relatively clean in average hostel standards; they do get cleaned every day. 20 minute walk from Old Town, and very close to the Florence metro station. Certainly do recommend it. Only thing to look out for is their overpriced... More

I stayed here for a few days this spring primarily because of it's location (it was just around the corner from my sister's apartment). For most travelers I imagine this would be a little bit out of the way (also it's not in a super touristy area) ,however Prague has a fantastic public transportation system and there is a bus...

I was a teacher with a group of students at the age of around 18 years. We were all satisfied. Friendly staff, great location, perfect services and very good breakfast, coffee and tea all day. Good party late into the night and very sympathetic interviews with young friends from all over the world, but this life is especially suitable for... More

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. We were a group of 26 celebrating the end of exams and this was the perfect place to base ourselves for partying and discovering Prague. The hostel was very accommodating to our large group but it's a very sociable place and I'm sure I would have made friends here if... More

I stayed here for a little less than a week last fall. While the hostel was convenient to the bus (the reason for so many of its guests, I am sure), it was a bit far from the center of the city (Old Town). The rooms were large, but the dining/sitting area was small. The complimentary breakfast is white bread... More

We went here with a large group of students. Communication went smoothly and they helped us a lot with all our questions. The ambiance was very nice (with many colours) and the rooms were large and clean. There were enough showers and the breakfast was ok (bread, cheese, ham, cucumber, jam, chocolate spread). It took about 20 mins to walk... More

My best friend and I stayed in Prague for 3 nights, all of them at Hostel Elf. We met amazing people, the staff was super helpful and friendly, their continental breakfast was good, the rooms and decorations were super unique and colorful. I don't have a single complaint after staying at this hostel! There is a kitchen area for all... More
