Lovely Hostel, great room size. Bathrooms were always really clean. Shop close by and a great Indian restaurant up the road. Even though it was winter the room was a lovely temperature. Although it was around a 20min walk to the town it was a scenic walk which we enjoyed.

If you're looking for somewhere where you can meet other travelers while having an authentic Prague experience then elf hostel is the place to be!! 20mins walk from the center elf is situated in a part of town where locals live their lives and tourists are rarely seen. (Aside from the elf guests). If it wasn't enough to be staying... More

It is a nice place to stay: I stay in the shared room, but the bigger one, and we had plenty of space. There is also a minimarket downstairs, not owned by the hostel, very cheap and open 24 hours. But the toilets are not enough, nor in number, nor in space. And, even though, they are clean, they don't... More

Prague is an amazing city, but I don't think I would've liked it as much if it wasn't for this hostel. I spent only 4 days there but I felt like I was at home. All the employees are incredibly friendly, and the events they host make everyone staying there feel like family. The experience I had at hostel Elf... More

I've been travelling solo for 2 months around the UK and Europe -- Hostel Elf was the BEST hostel I've come across. They had an amazing team of super friendly staff, a really cool set up, and the room was quite spacious and all very clean and organised. Free tea and coffee and even a free barbecue was available during... More

I came there after I visited the Clown and Bard hostel, and it's located in Zizkov too, not far from the previous one... I must say the staff was very kind and nice, especially Onze(hope I wrote the name right, bro), who was mostly on night shifts and always makes a great company for guests!

When I first got to the hostel I was a little put off by the location as it seemed a bit dark and dingy. It's about a 20 minute walk into the city centre, which isn't too bad considering the amount you end up walking around Prague (such a beautiful, amazing city!!) I was traveling solo and I was pleased... More
