Such a great stay! The guys that work there were super kind and incredibly helpful, I really enjoyed my stay. The room had A/C, the showers were warm and the beds were comfy. Its a great location, right in the middle if everything. Cheap food is close, Vitosha street (walking street) with all the shops is right around the corner.... More

We were a group of 8 and had a great experience at Hostel Lavele. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was extremely comfortable, and the included breakfast was delicious. Our room was a relief at the end of each day. If I come back through Sofia I will be staying here again!

Our room was very clean, but the upstairs shower was broken as was the light. I wanted to alert the manager about the light, but alas, after meeting him the first night we never saw him again and he was not around at opening/closing or any other hours, it seemed. We ended up paying the cleaner for our stay, who... More

This place is awesome! I was in a room of 8 with the people I was traveling with so we had the room to ourselves. Comfortable and clean beds, aircon, breakfast provided, friendly staff. I think we heard that there is only one room with aircon, so check with reception when it comes time for you to book your room.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this hostel is where they serve breakfast which is also included in your price. "The Gallery" is an underground stone-face romantically lit large room, with adjacent corridor that leads to more underground rooms and open spaces.. Just stunning.. I was surprised to learn the building was only built in 1915 ( not that that... More

We stayed in Lavele this month and had a great experience. The Twin room was excellent and spacious and the manager, Mario was one of the loveliest and most helpful people, he really looked out for anything we might need, be it an umbrella, directions maps. The location is very central (and right near Seridka Metro making it easy to... More

Hostel is very good located, close to the city center and metro. Nice and helpful staff. Our room was clean and cozy. Breakfast was ok. Unfortunately, there was only one bathroom on each floor. The bathroom on our floor was always wet.

This hostel is in the center of Sofia, you can reach metro station Serdika in 2 minutes. They have a little art gallery inside the hostel you should take a look :) BUT sheets are not that clean I recommend you to bring yours. The breakfast is poor and the kitchen ladies don't know English :( If you have a... More
