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....

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!

I just recently returned from my second stay at Hostel Elf. I am glad to say it was as enjoyable as the first. The beds are comfortable, it is very easy to meet people, and the staff are friendly. What more do you want in a hostel? Great wholesome atmosphere.

Loved the ambience and the staff! Pretty clean and near to the central railway station. The guy at the reception was very friendly and helpful. If you are traveling in a group of 8-10 people this a pretty cheap one.
