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

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
