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'.

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!

    We got in earlier than check-in and took a nap on the couch and then locked our luggage in the luggage room so we could explore the city. We came back to the hostel, checked-in and had a very comfortable stay in the private triple room. The hostel was affordable with many social opportunities if wanted, but it never got too loud and didn't impact our sleep (we slept very soundly). The atmosphere was cool and funky! Highly recommend! Also very close to both train stations!

    A little far away from the touristy places but really close to the bus/train station and everything is pretty much in walking distance. The staff are super friendly, the rooms are nice, and the free breakfast is a big plus.

    Great hostel, met with a smile and friendly, helpful advice for my stay in Prague, comfy beds with curtains for privacy, great location to the city and other sights nearby, free breakfast was simply bit tasty and satisfying. Used the baggage locker for day storage which was a huge help on the day checked out. Great place, very much enjoyed my stay.

    Really enjoyed our stay, the staff were cool and very helpful. Also the other guests that we might while there were also very cool so the hostel must attract good people all round. Would definitely stay there again if I find myself back in Prague.

    Very friendly and helpful staff at this hostel! Nice atmosphere and vibe. Unfortunately, I was staying at a time when a lot of large groups were checking in, so I found it more difficult to seek out other solo travelers. Good location - just a short walk to the city center. Awesome park with great views located right behind the hostel. I would definitely stay here again!

    I had a great stay at this hostel. I felt very welcome. The free bbq dinners were a fun way to meet other people and the staff were helpful. Halfway through the stay there was a big school group that arrived, which was fine, but it cut down on the number of young adults to hang out with. The free breakfast was limited but very appreciated. I did some cooking in the kitchen which had everything I needed. It was about a 20-30 min walk to the old town square, so a pretty convenient location.

    Common area is fantastic! Breakfast was wonderful! Kitchen was pretty dirty! Rooms were spacious and nice! Day time staff were great! Guys who worked at night were awkward and just trying to flirt with the young hostel goers.

    Very Good

    the hostel is quite good, a bit off the city centre but still in a reasonable walking distance, breakfast was ok, kitchen seemed large and well equipped but i didn't actually use it. the hostel doesn't allow alcohol from outside but they sell some good beers in an okay price. atmosphere was good but one problem is that the hostel allowed huge groups of students in so not many travellers we're around (i kinda get it, low season and all that...)

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
