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.

    I had a great experience staying at hostel ELF. There were some unforeseen circumstances that lead to some changes in my trip and the staff at hostel ELF were quick to accommodate. They were also very attentive, friendly, and provided a COVID-friendly space.

    Unfortunately I was the victim of a significant theft; just over €4000 was stolen from me by somebody who came into the room in the early hours of the morning. I am only grateful that it was only money that I lost and that there was no violence. Otherwise this is an amazing hostel with one of the most sincere and honest atmospheres that I have encountered anywhere in Europe.

    Overall my stay here was really nice! I met some great people that made it worthwhile. Overall the hostel is clean and with friendly staff however it is not very central. It is a 20-25 minute walk to the “big square” and old city. It was also definitely pretty quiet when I stayed here but maybe that just depends on the days. So if you are looking for a hostel to really socialise and party this is not the one. More chill vibes here :)

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
