Hostelworld says:

Hostel ELF is on the edge of central Prague, an estimated 20-minute walk to Old Town Square. Our guests have said this 'spacious and clean' hostel has Wi-Fi in the rooms and a 'fantastic kitchen, as well as a highly-praised seasonal BBQ three times a week. One Hostelworld user said they most appreciated the 'cool outside terrace for drinking, where people congregate-[a] good spot to meet people if you're a solo traveller'.

You may travel alone but you never have to be alone! If you’re in Prague, then Hostel ELF is the only place to stay.

With more than 13 years of backpackers’ experience, we offer you cheap accommodation, personal service and a lot of activities organized by the hostel staff.

We’re also a gallery full of unique underground art from young Czech artists. Our spacious rooms are originally decorated.

We have a free all-you-can-eat buffet-style breakfast.

At the heart of our hostel is our cosy common room where travellers from all over the world interact and socialize. Our fridge is always full of cheap Czech beer for only €0.70. You can relax outside on the garden terrace with BBQ area.

This is much more than a place to sleep in Prague – and Prague is more than just a stopover. Hostel ELF rocks. With our fun and funky atmosphere, come and find out why people don't want to leave...

Please note that we do not permit guests age 40 and over to stay in our dorm rooms. Thanks for understanding.

    We've run this hostel for 12 years so I think we're still one of the 'real' backpackers' hostels, not just a hotel-style place made to look like a hostel. Eighty percent of the beds in our hostel are in dorms. Our hostel is also a small gallery, full of unique underground art by young Czech artists. Each spacious room has original decor. Along with our free breakfast, in the summer we offer free BBQs three times a week; in the winter we do free dinners and pasta night. We also sell cheap beer (70 cents for 0.5L) and we offer free tea and coffee all day long. It's ideal for real backpackers travelling around the world.
    I recommend that people visit the Palac Akropolis. It's known as a centre of cultural events in the area.

    Elf hostel is an incredibly unique hostel. I loved my stay here. The staff was incredibly helpful and it's easy to meet new people. It's a small hike from the city center, but still good location. They have a new kitchen area and computers available for use! I'd recommend this hostel.

    I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It had a really good atmosphere and I found it great for meeting other travellers. Staff were incredible. One member of staff in particular (I forgot her name) helped me when I woke up late with only 20mins to catch my train, she called me a taxi at 4am and since I was short on some cash, to save me going to ATM she covered me out of her own money so that I wouldn't miss my train. -- Long walk to main attractions but easy to reach from main coach station.
