This hostel is located right off the main book trade square in central Sofia, in a great neighborhood, walking distance from the central street, and full of places to go, eat and see. The stuff is wonderful, cordial and greatly hospitable and makes your stay a pleasant and memorable experience !

First off, Sasha (cook and receptionist) really is what makes this place liveable. She is really friendly, has a lot of recommendations, and cooks a good brekky. The owner Mike is a nice fellow aswell. He sorted out our bus tickets, and taxi. The staff will do anything they can to help. The hostel itself isn't the nicest option around.... More

I stayed there for a few days in July 2013. I stayed in a 4 beds mixed dorm. The dorms are ok, the bathroom are clean and the breakfast is ok too. What really made the difference is the atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and provided me suggestions for places to see and go. Besides that, they are always... More

Good service. great location at the very heart of Sofia. Nice atmosphere. Even though its frosty outside in the winter, inside its cozy and warm. There is an option to cook, or a great chef is present (Sasha), either way she caters to your every need.

His hostel has a nice homey atmosphere. Everyone that works here is super helpful and attentive to the guests needs. Sasha, the manager, would also make home made meals that were out of this world. The rooms are roomy and clean, what more could you ask for?? Especially for the great price. Overall my stay here was beyond my expectations!

I was welcomed by a friendly and helpful staff that provided useful information and answered all my questions about the big city that I felt a little lost in. Free unlimted internet use was a plus for people like me who still don't have a computer. I had a comfy, clean bed (no loud clubs next door so a good... More

Taxi couldn't even find the place to start, owner was nice to organise and pay when I arrived. The owner is lovely and can give you good local history in the morning! However this is not really a hostel..just an apartment with some beds. Glad I got a bunk, some were in the floor. Pretty sure a homeless man was... More
