Had a great time at Elf. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff, especially Alena, were very friendly and helpful.

First of all, it's a bit of a trek outside the city center, so having little spontaneous walks when you want to don't amount to seeing much exciting. However, the staff are super friendly, play good music and treat the guests like friends, so when traveling solo, it makes it easy to feel like you're in the little crew, making meeting people very easy. Showers were exceptionally good. Get some sort of bus or tram app for Prague and you'll be fine

Absolutely love this hostel, exactly what travelling should be like. Stayed here two years ago and again this winter, not as busy in the winter but still amazing. Close to the train station loads of facilities and awesome staff, I'll be back..

I was at the Elf hostel for a couple of days, I could not have been more happier! The staff are amazing and very helpful. The location is fantastic its just a 5 min bus ride form the center or a 15 min walk, the common room is separated from the dorms so as well as being a bit of a party hostel the rooms are very quiet and clean, the free breakfast is exactly what I expected simple but filling and a good start to the day plus free coffee. I will definitely be recommending the elf!!!!!

Decent place, a fair walk from the old town centre but definitely manageable.

Nice place. Location is not perfect for the middle of the city things, if you stay in winter its a bit rough to walk for too long in the cold (but you can buy a metro ticket for fairly cheap). Free breakfast is decent (ham, cheese, bread, cereals etc). Friendly staff.

Hello Elona, sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us..You stayed in 12-bed dormitory and yes, it is possible that sometimes there is not such a nice smell if there is accommodated 12 people in one room. Especially in winter when it is difficult to open the window and get some fresh air..Anyway, the price of 14 EUR with breakfast incl. doesnt seem to high for us for the 28th and the 29th of December. Hope next time you find better place..

AMAZING hostel. I could not recommend it more. It's very close to both Venic station and the main train station, and near to plenty of nightlife and cool activities. But what really makes this hostel is the atmosphere. I've never been to a hostel where everyone was so warm and welcoming. Overall, a wonderful stay in Prague. Thank you Hostel Elf!!

Probably the best hostel I've stayed in. Has a real traveler feel to it, unlike so many new hostels popping up that seem more like cold hotels. Lockers are big, beds are comfy and bathrooms are always clean. Breakfast is your standard buffet of cheese, bread and meat which is always lovely. Definitely would book on my next trip to Prague and can't wait to come back!
