I have stayed in my share of hostels around the world, whether in shared or private rooms; though a "senior", I have no problem with their mostly young clientele and have found them often just as good as, or better than, budget hotels.
But Miss Sophie's is something else! When I entered my private single room, I was amazed at the - no other word for it - elegance of the decor and fittings. This was a hostel room? The bed was wide and comfortable, the bathroom was spanking clean and gleaming. Downstairs there is free internet and subway tickets are available at the front desk. It is a short walk to a subway station just two stops from the Old Town and there are cozy bars nearby. I loved coming back to the room after a long day touring.
Two minor drawbacks: Unlike most hostels, it does not offer breakfast so that you have to provide for yourself, but there are food shops in the area they can point you to. And the warmth of responses from the front desk staff can vary depending on who happens to be on duty. (Not that it is ever unfriendly, but it can be just short of curt at times.) But no question that this is where I would book again if I come back to Prague.
