    Hostel Elf is one of those dorms that gets converted into a youth hostel in the summer time. It's located on the east side of town near the train station. In fact I was referred to Elf by the tourist information agent at the train station.

    The hostel is CHEAP, so that's a great starting point. The rooms are literally dorm rooms with mostly Ikea furniture. The two selling points are the balconies and the courtyard. When I stayed there (for 8 days) I fell in with a group of French backpackers from Lyon and we spent lots of time in the courtyard listening the music, smoking Galoise and laughing it up.

    I've been there in 2008 and I must admit this is a great hostel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only one minus is that this hostel is next to the railways route and it might be a little loud for some people, for me it was same as in my apartment :) In general very good place ! highly recommended !

    Hostel Elf is located near the main bus station, just one stop away, as well as a fairly easy 15 minute walk to the center of Prague. It is a nice hostel with great beds, computers, kitchen, outdoor patio, free BBQ's, breakfast and a friendly staff! It's a very social hostel, you're sure to meet others to explore with!
