This hostel was in our top 3 while backpacking, the rooms were large, the staff was friendly and super helpful and there was not a shortage of beer! We especially enjoyed the amount of showers/washrooms. Never had to wait once. Would stay here again for sure if back in Prague.

I highly recommend staying at hostel elf! It has wonderful accommodations, has very friendly staff, and is only about 20 minute walk from old town. Every thing is clean and well maintained. I just stayed here for 5 days and had an amazing time. I will definitely be returning.

The hostel is good, the staff is nice, the breakfast very complete! It has a garden and big common areas and the rooms quite big! It is 15 minutes walking from the train station and Prague Old City, and well connected by tram.
