Great place for backpackers! Good showers, relaxed and super friendly staff, breakfast buffe with cereals and toast, nice atmosphere and a great place to meet new friends. A friend on the road that gets two thumbs up from this backpacker.

I just recently returned from my second stay at Hostel Elf. I am glad to say it was as enjoyable as the first. The beds are comfortable, it is very easy to meet people, and the staff are friendly. What more do you want in a hostel? Great wholesome atmosphere.

Loved the ambience and the staff! Pretty clean and near to the central railway station. The guy at the reception was very friendly and helpful. If you are traveling in a group of 8-10 people this a pretty cheap one.

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
