The Hostel Elf is a nice backpacker hostel with a great location, close from Prague's city center. The terrace, bar, BBQ and green area nearby makes of this hostel a chilled place with a lively atmosphere.

From getting of my Flix bus from Hamburg and realizing that the hostel was only a 10min walk away, to the great service I got upon arrival, happy hours and free BBq's, I can't rate Hostel Elf high enough. 100% comming back next time in Prague

We spent a night here and booked an entire 4 bed dorm. Perfect for our family. The hostel was clean and organised. Very helpful on reception and check in was fast and efficient. Close enough to walk into the city centre and the Charles Bridge. Good continental breakfast with cold meats etc. 24 hour Tea and Coffee was very welcome.
