The location of the hostel is perfect. It's in 10 mins walking from the Florence bus station and about 20 mins from the city center/ old town - you dont need to use the public transport at all. The neighbourhood Żiżkov is also a nice place, worth have a walk around it. The stuff is very friendly, helpful and flexible, available 24/7, the hostel and mostly bathrooms are very clean. Breakfast is rather basic.

Hostel Elf was very close to the bus station, so good for me! The staff was very helpful, the gave me good informations. Great place to meet new people too, they have a great common place so it's easy just to sit down and talk to the other travelers!

No decent sized lockers for a travellers bag The directions to get there were not great; house and confusing as staff were awesome though really helpful and polite Brekky pretty good for a freebie showers were the worst like they were clean but the hot water was too unreliable. But all in all the homie feeling makes up for it :) Beautiful place!

Good location but a very quiet hostel for Prague, with a small common area and a lack of activities that also make it very hard to mingle with other guests, they also don't do their own pub crawls, only promote a city one that is quiet expensive at around 20euro. If you're looking to only come here to chill and see the sights during the day then this is ideal but most backpackers I bet come to Prague for its infamous nighlife and if you are one of these go to Madhouse Party Hostel or HostelOne

Finding the hostel would be tricky. But for a weekend a comfortable place to stay.

A great hostel near Florenc bus station if you are arriving via bus. It's a really sweet little hole in the wall sorta place with an awesome vibe and an even better breakfast.

We felt pretty meh about this hostel. It has so much potential - maybe it's better in the summer. The staff were pretty disinterested, and it was hard to meet people. For some reason, the common areas didn't seem to lend themselves to people really jelling. The tram is a couple of blocks away, and it's only avery clean, about a 10 min walk from the train station. Great Indian restaurant next door. The hostel itself was super clean and quite comfortable, so no complaints there.

Very helpful staff. Currency exchange service for euros was much needed. Some facilities (e.g. desktop computers, shower lights) did not work at times though.

This hostel has a really homely feel. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. The numerous toilets and bathrooms are clean and done to a high standard for a hostel. The breakfast each morning is good, and you can help yourself to hot drinks at any time of the day. It's a short bus ride into the centre of Prague so a good location. Overall we loved this place!

The definition of a good hostel right here. Stayed there for Christmas and boy did i meet people. Staff was super friendly and everything went great. Big but not so much, ideal hostel size for meeting people. :) thanks for everything and best wishes Hostel Elf.

The hostel has a kitchen with all the equipment which is an advantage. The breakfest was really good. But the breakfest room is too small, sometimes we didn't have places to sit. Problems with the showers((( The water temperature changes by itself and the range of changing is from realy cold to very hot.

Friendly and helpful staff. But the hostel needs to improve on their wifi.
