Reviewed 15 June 2014

I have stayed in the beginning of June, 2014, for total of 4 nights (first 2 nights in female only 5-bed & the last 2 in mixed 5-bed). It is impeccably clean, modern, comfortable, with all amenities perfectly available: You can store your food in shared kitchen, personal items in roll-up storage under bed, and suitcase/baggage in luggage area before check in & after check out. Their bed was as comfortable as some 5-star hotels I have stayed in. The female only room had its own kitchen & bathroom, while mixed shared both with other adjacent rooms. I appreciate the fact it's located slightly outside the center and in apartment building where I felt more like locals with own key to enter the building, and the distance was never issue for me since everything was within walking distance (I never got a chance to use public transportation since Prague was so walk-able!) It also seems attracting a sort of travelers who are very considerate to others particularly at night, as well as in common areas. If you are looking for a quiet, more matured & updated version of commonly perceived "hostel," then don't look any further! You will love it :)

Room Tip: Both female only & mixed 5 bed rooms (all single beds) are excellent!

We loved this hotel the first time we visited Prague 3 years ago -sadly disappointed on our 2nd visit...

The first 2 nights we stayed in the Miss Sophie's 1 bedroom apartment across the road - on entry to the building it looks dirty the floors and elevator could do with a clean.

Apartment was spacious, lacking character and noisy with Main Street so close. No ventilation for the bathroom.

The next 2 nights we stayed in the double room hotel our room was poky again no ventilation in bathroom just an automatic light & fan - some air freshener would be nice and the street is very noisy.

Breakfast was nice - hot chocolate beautiful we were sad to hear Edgar (chef) had left. Staff friendly although it was always busy - spent a lot of time waiting at reception during our stay.

The hotel is a fair walk to many main attractions in future I will be staying in Praha 1 area as it's so close to everything and would recommend around the old town/ new town area for anyone wanting to walk out of there hotel into fabulous restaurant's and the vibrant ambiance of Prague.

It's an AMAZING CITY!!!

Think Miss Sophie's is best for back packers.

Perfect stay here. We stayed in the five bed dorm (stayed one night with my brother, sister, partner and my sisters partner) private shower room and had access to a kitchen area. Staff very polite and friendly. Would definitely recommend staying here. Only down side is that it was about a ten minute walk from the main touristy bits. But for the price you pay it really didn't matter!!

We really enjoyed our stay at Miss Sophie's. We rented an apartment and it was beautifully designed, spacious, clean and fully equipped. The breakfast was simple but delicious and the staff were very helpful and friendly. While it is not located in the historical center, it is close to tram & train stations which make it easily accessible. We will definitely go back to Miss Sophie's the next time we are in Prague.

Room Tip: If you are a group of 4, choose the apartment. It's worth your money!

Miss Sophie's has a wonderful clean modern aesthetic to it. While getting there from the train station was a bit convoluted, if you follow the directions on the website, you'll find it easily enough. There are some decent restaurants nearby it & the metro is a quick 5-10 min walk (we walk slowly). It's also a 5-10 min walk to the river, and from there you can get to most attractions within a 30 min walk.

The wi-fi was decent and the bed was comfortable enough. The only two things that bothered me both have to do with the bathroom design. First was the automatic lights. I get that it's a way to save energy, but it freaks me out when I'm in the shower or doing whatever in the bathroom and the lights go out, plunging the entire bathroom in complete darkness. So, to prevent that, I would flail a towel in the direction of where I think the sensors were, every 5 min or so...which made me feel a bit ridiculous. Then the opposite would happen in which the bathroom light would flick on when I'd walk by the bathroom door without entering, but only sometimes. It became kind of a game to predict when the lights would turn on or off. Also, I was so irritated by the design of the bathroom door handle. It looked super-cool and fit with the aesthetic, but I always had such a problem with closing the door. Ok, it's such a small problem, but I'm a bit on the OCD-side, and it just bothered me so much (but my husband was super-fine with it...to each their own).

Other than that, every member of the staff we spoke with was friendly and so helpful. Our first day, we had the best conversation with the guy manning the reception. He showed us all the best places to eat and see, gave us some advice on what Czech cuisine we should try, and answered all our questions with a great smile on his face. Every time we'd leave the hotel or return, we'd be greeted with a friendly hello. Plus, I loved that we could buy transportation tickets directly from reception (which is awesome if you don't have spare change....since those machines don't take bills).

A note on the Bohemian Walking Tour that leaves directly from the hostel: the guide was wonderful and we learned a lot about the city. However, the tour doesn't really start immediately. You'll walk about 20 min (quickly!) with the guide to meet up with the main tour group. It's a good extra look at the city, but I was starting to tire already before the tour even started. Also, make sure to be at the reception area before the meeting time. The first time we tried to go on the tour, we arrived a couple minutes late, and they were already gone.

All in all, a pleasant stay at a good price. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Our private room was on the second floor which is nice and quiet, plus they have an elevator (yay!)

Easy enough to find from the train station, about 15 minute walk. Arrived from an overnight train at around 8am (obviously too early to check in), but the reception staff still sorted everything and let us use the luggage storage until the afternoon when all we needed to do was pick up the keys.

Went off into the city centre (15-20 minute walk away), returning around 4pm to get settled in. It was at this point we were told we would be in the building across the street (which always sets alarm bells ringing) in a private room, rather than the dorm we had booked. There was no extra charge for this but it was probably more down to a booking mess-up than their generosity.

The room itself was really nice, but it felt a lot less secure than the main building, probably as there was no reception or members of staff at the entrance.

The beds were really comfy and the pillows were huge! All made for a very good night's sleep.

However, we had to pay to borrow a towel, and didn't even get to use it. Unfortunately when we were there, there was a plumbing problem. The shower went cold and wouldn't warm up for hours, and an unpleasant smell seemed to be creeping up into the bathroom from the drains below. The next day, a note was left on the shower saying that the heating was broken, so the shower was out of order, and we could use one on another floor. The room stayed rather cold for the rest of the night though, so we went to bed with quite a few layers on.

Undoubtedly the best thing the hostel has to offer is the breakfast. Not included, and not exactly cheap (about £5 in English equivalent) but you could definitely get your money's worth. Ready on your plate is a croissant with jam, and then it's All You Can Eat from cereals, breads, fruits, yogurts etc and a choice from several hot options (omelette, pancakes, French toast, bacon, etc) cooked in front of you.

Perfect hostel for those wanting a quiet stay as it didn't seem to get very social (common room was empty on both nights we were there), but for someone looking for a livelier, more social environment, there are probably other hostels in Prague for you.
