Really enjoyed staying at Hostel Elf. There was a friendly feel to the place, which was enhanced by the shaded beer garden outside, where there were lots of benches and people always seemed to gather. Met some really nice people here and used the hostel as a base to explore/party etc. A little bit difficult for a drunken mess of... More

The staff was very helpful at Hostel Elf and I did like the location, even if it is pretty far from the city center (just hop on the 207 bus for like 4 stops, or walk for 20 minutes). There are some good pubs and restaurants nearby and a direct path to the train station. I really liked the rooms,... More

Sociable, friendly hostel with a good location. We made some amazing friends in Elf who we travelled with further. You get a continental breakfast which was basic but nice and the free BBQ was lots of fun. Rooms were nice, we were in an 8 bed. Clean bedding, a locker each and very very very very cheap drinks! Not many... More

I liked this hostel. We stayed for two nights with friends. The city is really nice and this hostel is not so wide from the city center. The atmosphere of hostel is pretty cool, but the breakfast was not so good, just any toast bread with cheese and some salami and cucumber.

Stayed there for 2 nights. Great location especially for people who travel by bus. Very close to the bus station. Nice stuff, free breakfast and wifi reached the rooms. Tidy rooms.. 15-20 min to walk to old center. I liked to be there. Just the main door to the room worked bad and I always had to ask stuff to... More

Really great hostel in Prague. Only takes about 20 minutes to walk into the old town. Facilities are first class - comfortable beds, free breakfast every day, there was a free BBQ on Saturday and wifi throughout the hostel. The staff were really friendly too. The outside decking are is a great place to chill and have a few drinks.... More

Staff were so nice and the atmosphere was perfect! Met loads of people and the free bbq was a nice perk as was the outside decking area where we spent most of our time. Only a short walk from the station (Prague hnl). Would definitely stay here again! Xx

Great place to meet other people. Cheap beer, free bbqs, and free breakfast. Great hostel for on a budget, rooms very clean aswell as bathrooms. Rooms can get quite hot, especially on the bottom bunk. And be ready for a 20 minute walk into the old town. But apart from that a very social friendly hostel!

Really liked this hostel, we stayed for four nights and had our own private dorm, despite this most of the other guests stayed in shared dorms, which looked just as good too. It was extremely clean, they have free breakfast, a really nice outdoor seating area with a youthful vibe and super cheap beer! The staff were really friendly and... More
