      This was the best hostel I've ever stayed in!
      The breakfast - worth paying the money - so much, gourmet and delicious!
      The rooms - fresh, clean, light, quiet, fairly spacious. The bathroom was very lush with full shower head and hair dryer.
      The staff - very friendly and helpful.
      Location - quite central. About a 30 minute walk to the centre of the old town.

      Miss Sophie's was a very clean and spacious hostel, with each room being a small part of an apartment. No bunk beds and a maximum of 5 people to a room. Very clean hostel, very friendly and helpful staff members.
      Miss Sophie's offers a full buffet breakfast at a cost if you wish. The location is very easy to make your way in and out of town and also in a good location for public transort. However, I felt it would be better if it were a little closer walking distance to town. The only thing I could fault.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Miss Sophie's Prague

      Freundliches Personal, ruhig und entspannend

      from

      Während des bitterkalten Januars haben wir ein paar schöne Nächte im Miss Sophie verbracht.

      Das Personal war sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Die Herberge war unglaublich warm, was bei den Außentemperaturen von -5C sehr wichtig war. Die Herberge hat minimalistischen Stil mit einfachen Zementwänden und Möbelar, aber es hat ihren eigenen Karakter. Der Keller/die Küche ist klein aber bequem und das gesamte Gebäude ist sehr ruhig, also sehr gut für mich, aber nicht für Junggesellenabschiedsparties! Es liegt sehr günstig, wenn einem etwas Laufen nichts ausmacht. Die Metro ist sehr nah und der Wenzelplatz ist nur etwa 10 Gehminuten entfernt. Warum verreisen, wenn man nicht etwas herumläuft und erkundent?!

      Miss Sophie´s hat alles, was man wirklich für einen gelungenen Aufenthalt in Prag benötigt.

      Value for money, nice and clean

      from

      Me and my boyfriend spent our 4-day Easter break at this lovely hostel. We didn't stay in the newly renovated apartment on our first night due to some over-booking issue, however, the overall quality was still good. We then got transferred to Sophie's main apartment room for the rest of our staying. The decoration is really modern and nice and the apartment is clean and spacious. There's kettle and coffee maker in the kitchen and tea bag and coffee are also available. The staff was very friendly and they all spoke good English. There's also internet available which is free for guests to use at the reception launge.

      The metro station is just a 5-minute walk distance and there are two Delis on the way to the metro which provide tasty and cheap simple breakfast! The neighborhood is also quite nice and there's PWC's big open-space fancy building near by. The major tourist attraction spots are about 2 to 5 stops the most; since Prague is quite small in a way, we basically walked around the town the whole trip.

      In short, this is my first time to leave reviews and the reason I decide to post this review is because I do think it's a nice place to stay in Prague. I highly recommend this place and am willing to stay if in the future I will be going to Prague again.

      Friendly staff, quiet and relaxing

      from

      We spent a lovely couple of nights in Miss Sophie's in freezing cold January. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hostel was incredibly warm which was essential considering it never got above -5C outside.

      The hostel is of a minimalist style with basic concrete walls and simple furnishing, but it somehow retains character. The basement/kitchen is small but comfortable and the whole place is relatively quiet so great for me but no good for a stag/hen party!

      It has a good location if you're not fussy about a bit of a walk. The metro is very close and Wenceslas Square is about a ten minute walk. Why go somewhere if you're not going to walk about and see some of it?!

      Miss Sophie's has all you could really need for a whistlestop visit to Prague.

      We'd go back in a heartbeat!

      from

      We were meeting family in Prague for a couple of days, and wanted someplace clean, safe, reasonably priced. We were most pleased. Accomodations seem newly updated, beds comfortable, baths new and clean. There is a kitchenette in the basement, a security camera monitors your entry (attendant beeps you in). There is Internet access in the lobby-two workstations. It is close to IP Pavlova subway station and a reasonable hike to Wenceslaus square. There is no TV, and the rooms seem a little bare. We didn't mind. We are not kids; I just turned 60.

      The best part about Miss Sophie's might be the staff. They speak English and are most friendly and helpful. Vlady is a superstar. The price was about $75 a night for a double. They don't take credit cards, but will take payment in Koruna or Euros.

      Convenient and Comfortable

      from

      Five of us early 20-somethings just spent 2 nights in Miss Sophie's (we booked a 5 person room at about $18 USD a night each) and loved the hostel. The staff is friendly and incredibly helpful, the room was clean, the bathrooms were fantastic (but yes, make sure you bring soap and don't forget a towel), and the common room in the basement was a cozy place to sit when we were waiting for our taxi to show up and take us to the airport.

      Upon arrival, we were given great maps (even a local commented that they were great maps) and told that for breakfast we should hop across the street to "Banditos." Definitely do that. The staff at the restaurant was helpful and even suggested a few local pubs to go to (we suggest finding "Usudu"...it looks a little strange walking in, but find the stairs, go down and enjoy the atmosphere).

      Not only was the staff great, but the location of Miss Sophie's is perfect. It's a little bit of a walk to get to Old Town (about 15-20 minutes), but it's really an easy walk and we really enjoyed exploring the city. If walking isn't your thing, there's a tram stop only a few blocks away and the hostel staff is happy to point you in the right direction.

      The free internet in the lobby was great, too. And don't forget to read the guestbook--there are all kinds of great tips in there.

      We had a great time at Miss Sophie's and I would definitely recommend it.

      Sophie's is the Best

      from

      I just returned from a 20 day trip through Europe and Sophie's was my favorite hotel/hostel. I stayed at primarily hostels and it far exceeded all others in terms of service, quality, cleanliness, value, etc. It's a beautiful, beautiful hotel (hostel) with free internet, lovely rooms and a great staff. I wrote home telling others it was the "Westin hotels" of hostels. The only negative feedback I heard was from very young travellers was that they were looking for a party place...and it is not that.

      Lovely city with rich history

      from

      We were asked to travel to Prague for a business meeting and combined the trip with our honeymoon. As newlyweds, we needed to keep our own expenses on a budget. So we had an opportunity to contrast travel accommodations between the Intercontinental Praha (a solid 4 star hotel) and Miss Sophies Hotel (a yet unrated combination hostel, hotel and pension). You can check out the Intercontinental Praha reviews in TA and get a good idea of that facility. It's a world beyond Miss Sophies [--]. However, Sophies, located in New Town at Melounova 3, is within walking distance of anything in Old or New Town. The little hotel offers small, immaculately clean, private rooms with bath, or other typical hostel arrangements, at a very attractive price. (Private rooms w/ bath at 1400 KCZ - about $56 USD.) Plan on packing your own soap and shampoo. There is no air conditioning, but for cool nights - efficient steam heat. The windows actually open for fresh air and down comforters are provided. The furnishings are minimalist, but all custom built with contemporary styling that contrasts nicely with the polished oak floors. The staff is multilingual, very friendly and helpful. There is not a restuarant in the hotel, but Banditos next door fills the gap nicely, offering value-priced breakfast, lunch and dinner with a tasty Mexican flair. Value price means you could be paying less than $5 USD without drinks (full bar is available). Czech beer on happy hour is about $0.50 USD and leagues beyond anything brewed in the United States. Other wonderful neighborhood restaurants include U Dlabace (104 typical Czech items on menu), Pivorsky Dum (Brewery House) - a brew pub with wonderful Czech and hunt-style dishes, and The Butterfly - contemporary Czech food and California-style pizza in a casual environment with sidewalk seating available.

      We highly recommend taking a few days to walk around and absorb the city. Then, you may want to hire a private guide to accompany you and introduce you to the history and architecture of one of the most intriguing cities in central Europe, a former capital of the Holy Roman Empire, and the site of many European power struggles. Prague is recovering nicely from more than 40 years of Soviet control, and previous 6 years of Nazi occupation. It is a city that is rebuilding its identity by reaching back into more than 1000 years of cultural history that the locals are proud and eager to share.

      A few travel notes, beware of tourist pitfalls in some Old Town area reastaurants - English menus with inflated prices, extra charges for seemingly complimentary items such as butter, ketchup and sauces - even spoonfuls of nuts that may be served tapa-style as you are seated. Carry small change for public toilets (the attendants become surely if unpaid), and bring small packs of facial tissue to substitute for toilet paper - I call Czech-produced TP "Blot Don't Rub" brand. Baby Wipes are helpful when soap is not available.

      We spent 9 wonderful days in the city and would love to return. There is much yet to be seen and learned.

      Great budget hotel

      from

      We had the handicap room off of the lobby, which had a fantastic shower. The beds were a little hard, but acceptable. Our room had a place to lay 2 suitcases and a little couch, with two big windows. Great, free,fast internet access. It is about a 10 min walk to Wenceslas and a 15 min walk to Old Town Square, but the tram and subway stop is right up the street and easy to use.

      A Bargain With Great Showers, But Otherwise Basic

      from

      If all you need is a clean room and shower, this is a recommended option. I booked a single room, private bath/toilet for 1200 kc a night. My room had two single beds. The pluses are the famous showers in this new hostel/hotel. The shower head must have been at least 12 inches in diameter! Decor was very post-modern, stark, so there were no cabinets or closets in the room. The other big plus for Miss Sophie's is the free Internet in the lobby. It's also very convenient to I.P. Pavlova Metro and lots of trams running on the street off the hotel. The negatives are the lack of closets, etc., mentioned above. Also, pretty inconsistent service since the staff are basically young kids without a lot of training. I stayed four days, and my linens and towels were never changed or even made up. It wasn't until my last night that I overheard one staffer tell someone checking in that linens could be changed "on request." They also initially got my rate wrong at check-in until I caught the mistake. Also, avoid rooms 1 and 2, which are on the ground floor right at the lobby, so every backpacking hosteler and his/her friend will be waking you up as they come in from bar-hopping and want to check their e-mail. So, in summary, it's a great place if all you need is a place to sleep and get cleaned up.

      Great Value....but...........

      from

      It's 2 or 3 metro stops away from the 'Main Places' such as the old square but dont let that put you off. The Hostel is very 'Boutique' style ( they refer to themselves as a Hotel - Not sure why? ) and is very trendy but lacking any atmosphere. There is a very smart looking communal seating area downstairs which should be 'happening' but again...seriously lacking any atmosphere! It was empty most of the time we were there which was great if you want some peace and read a book etc but theres no music, no vending machines, no coffee in the morning ( ahhh!!! ) ...........but free internet access!

      The rooms are clean, a bit bare but ok, the shower was superb, the bed wasn't great and the whole place stank of cigarettes despite it being a NON SMOKING hostel. This really made me mad ( sorry to the smokers but please..... ) each time we entered our room the waft of cigarette smoke from the people puffing away in their rooms came seeping through the ventilation system so it literally smelt as if someone had been smoking in our room.

      However, after all my honest opinions.............if its just somewhere to kip for the weekend thats very warm ( we had 6" of snow when we there ) and just a few minutes walk from a metro station AND walking distance from one of the hippest , coolest, laid back bars/eateries ( club downstairs at W/Ends ) called RADOST FX. You gotta go there:The food is excellent, cheap enough and its very cool.

      So....have fun!!

      Prague wasn't originally on my 'list’ of places to see in Europe, whether it was the fact I didn’t know much about the place or that I was so set on seeing the main attractions somehow it missed my radar.
