Hostelworld says

Hostel ELF is located 5 minutes walk from the central bus station Florenc and 10 walk from the Main Train station. 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'.

Established in 2000 as one of Prague’s first hostels, Hostel Elf maintains its eventful vibe and keeps floating on the waves of a real backpackers mood. Our biggest pride belongs to our terrace patio and common room where you can chill out with other travelers. To enhance one’s communication abilities, we sell Czech beer at the 24/7 reception.
We are a totally independent hostel, all of the staff are employed full time, they have a great knowledge of the local area with good recommendations of local bars, parks and landmarks.

The interior is decorated with modern art paintings and the outside terrace has mural graffiti artworks. If you are artistically gifted, or just an art enthusiast, you can beautify part of our fence with your national symbols or the flag of your country. We have over eighty of them hanged here with the best ones being Canada and South Africa so far.
The music played is mostly reggae, punk rock, drum and bass and old-school hip hop depending on the shift and weather.
Looking forward having you!

Hostel Elf is a charming hostel in the district of Zizkov, It has an alternative vibe with a friendly atmosphere, full of like minded travelers. Included in your stay is free buffet breakfast, unlimited coffee + tea and a free BBQ.

Please note that we do not permit guests age 40 and over to stay in our dorm rooms but you are more than welcome to stay in private rooms. Thanks for understanding.

    Great location andatmosphere as the hostel is much smaller due to it not being a chain means everyone is happy to talk and had a lovely seated area outside. Cheap beer and free teas and coffee all day. Breakfast is included although very basic. Room was spacious with great lockers for bags, really comfortable beds with privacy curtain and plugs at bedside. Bathrooms are separate but kept really clean. The look of the hostel is very unique and don't be put off by the hill you have to climb!

    Fun hostel with ridiculously cheap beer at happy hour. Friendly staff help you find everything you're looking for. Social, party atmosphere, especially on the front terrace. Free breakfast and barbecue 3 times a week. 10-15 minute walk from old town, but very close to the bus station.

    Very Good

    Elf Hostel is great. The bathrooms are outside of the rooms so people won’t be waking you up as much since they will not be making noises in the room. The outdoor area is fun and if you sit out there you’re sure to meet plenty of fun people. Beds are slightly uncomfortable as they are just futons on planks. Free towels are nice as well. Breakfast is small but does the job.

Hostel ELF says

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. Hana, Manager
