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'.

Property Description

OVERVIEW
Nearly for twenty years, Hostel ELF is a perfect base for young travelers seeking for fun, adventures, nightlife, art and history in hundred-spired Prague. You will enjoy vibrant atmosphere in a unique hostel setting full of Instagram-worthy graffiti and modern artworks. Wide choice of regular events and parties will help you to socialize with other like-minded backpackers in our comfy lounge or at blooming patio partially shaded by trees. Make there a barbecue, eat your meal, enjoy your cup of morning coffee or famous Czech beer from our bar and start exploring.

LOCATION
The hostel is located 20min walk from the Prague Old Town in Žižkov, a district full of bars, pubs, cafes, galleries and restaurants serving traditional goulash or pork knuckle. It is said that Žižkov has the highest density of bars than any other city district in Europe so it makes sense to head there if you are looking for a night out. The Palác Akropolis is recognized as a center of cultural events in the area and the Storm club is considered to be one of the best in Prague. If you are into history and modern architecture visit nearby National monument Vítkov and Žižkov TV tower, from where you can admire breathtaking views over the whole city.

SERVICES and EVENTS
Connect to free Wi-Fi to stay in touch with others and to plan your day. Join a Free walking tour, Pub crawl or ask our staff at the reception open
from 8.00- 22.00 to help you finding the best things to do. Tight budget? Enjoy free coffee or tea available 24/7 or prove your cooking skills in fully equipped kitchen.

ROOMS and DORMS
Are you coming alone, in couple or with a bunch of friends? We have options for all - rooms with private or shared bathroom or spacious dormitories each decorated with original artworks. For your safety all the rooms are accessible with a key card and on dormitories you can store your luggage in personal lockers.

    We had an amazing time at ELF. Great location, clean rooms, and easy check in/out. It’s very easy to meet new people and all the staff are wonderful. Rosie, Mikey, Louis and Eric helped create a fun and welcoming atmosphere at the hostel and gave great recommendations on places to go in the city. Also shout out to Rosie’s artwork which makes the decor in the hostel especially unique and lovely. Would definitely choose this hostel again!

    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed at! Great activities, friendly people, safe, and clean. The location is great - I loved the neighborhood and it’s right in front of a bus stop and a 7 min walk to a tram stop. The outdoor patio and garden is lovely. Special shout out to the volunteers who make the experience really fun.

    The hostel was clean, the staff seemed helpful, the courtyard was really nice, and the kitchen was functional. My visit was at the same time as a large youth school group so I didn't have an easy time meeting people or using the common spaces. Constructive feedback for the hostel is to fix the fridge since it didnt close properly. Overall I had a nice time and would stay here again.

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
