We had a great time at this hostel, friendly staff, big dorm rooms and a great communal area at reception. They sell cheap alcohol until midnight and are in a really central location. We had a bit of trouble finding the hostel as it was at night and the walking directions from the train station are a bit confusing but... More

You simply could not find a better hostel than Hostel Elf. Fact. We went here for New Year 2013/14. The hostel was absolutely packed and there wasn't a single free bed but everything was so organised and slick that this wasn't a problem. Entry to the rooms is by key card, for which you can leave a €5 refundable deposit.... More

We went to prague in november 2013 with a group of seven people. We got our own room, which was quite convenient. About the hostel: they run a good effort towards service. Doing free food and drinks on tuesday and thursday-eves, lots of maps and flyers for things to do, etc. They have some computers, excellent bathrooms (but pls, change... More

I really like this place. I was here over a year ago for a few days while hostel-hopping and it's one of my favorite (and #1 most memorable) places to stay in Prague. It's relatively inexpensive and in a great location (Zizkov - outside of center and loads of cool "local type" places around.) Staff is great, it has a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights only but it was really cool! The people are very friendly, the hostel itself is in a very central location, a 5 min walk to the main square. I would definitely recommend this place.

I will always have good memories of the Elf hostel as I met my girlfriend there. She was sleeping in the bunk above me, and well... you get the picture. Putting that aside, the hostel is nice, basic and accommodating - with friendly service and a great atmosphere. We shall be going back!

The hostel is located around 20 minutes walk from the city centre, although there is a bus stop from near the hostel. There are free computers to use and plenty of bathrooms. The wifi didn't always work in our room but that wasn't too big a problem. Our dorm room was large and spacious, and there were lockers too for... More
