The finest benefit of this hostel is the good location and friendly staff.

  Customer Review 

The hostel is situated in the middle of the city, so wonderful location. Really low-cost and a lot of fun individuals to meet.

What a turnaround. I stayed at Elephant in 2012 and cant believe the changes. Some familiar faces behind the reception desk Now have wifi. You can sleep at night inside the 1st and 2nd floor dorms, Its silent now the night guy chases noisemakers to the basement. Everywhere you look there are improvements. From the new Wireless to the large screen TV inside the basement. Everywhere you look points are being cleaned and painted and from talking to the employees massive changes are on the way. :-) As explained on the website the rooms on the 2nd floor exactly where I was, Are cubicle style but the employees are great you drop your phone or Personal computer in reception and they charge it. If Kara or Per dont know exactly where something is they happily google and print it out for you. I just hopped off a long journey and chuckled all of the way to my room. Its not the finest location I have been But a long way from the worst. Apparently there is a new owner and you can really see that they really like the place. And are doing massive changes. 10 out of 10 for the improvements and I will definately be coming back to see the changes
