The dorm is a nice big room under the roof. Really nice place to meet great people. Everyone working there is happy to do so. Plus a nice garden and good location ... I can only recommend it to everyone

Sofia Canape Connection is a real backpacker’s hostel. It has a lovely outdoor patio where you can sit, relax and meet other travelers. There is also room to sit in the basement area downstairs (which has a computer for guests to use). The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They can set you up with city tours, out of town...

I had a great time at Canape Connection. The staff was wonderful. Nice and accommodating. The room was nice and spacious and the beds were comfy. And the people I met were wonderful. This hostel appears to attract only the best in terms of company. The location was great, right off of Vitosha Boulevard in the center of the city.... More

Very friendly staff. Eventhough I was told by the staff that breakfast would be limited since it wasn't high season, there was still enough to choose from. Located about 5 minutes from the main boulevard. There is no big lounch, but the yard, kitchen and even the reception office are good places to hang out.

This hostel is well worth it's money. Beds are wide and comfy, breakfast is good and location is close to the main sights and bars. Staff is super friendly and helpful. They are happy to inquire about tours for you and check what time trains go. The entire hostel is very nicely decorated so you feel right at home. Would... More

Arriving in a large city to be turned away from first choice for accommodation is not pleasant at any time, let alone, late at night. In Sofia the Canape Connection Hostel was close by and our group of four were made very welcome and given bunks in the shared dorm. This was the beginning of a great experience provided by... More

Stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. Dorm room is in the loft and has 7-8 beds. What I really like about this dorm is that there are no bulk beds (I don't hate bulk beds but surery a normal bed is better, isn't it?). Beds are just matress with a base but they are confortable enough. Breakfast is really... More

I slept both in a 4-bed dorm and the 8-bed dorm. Usually I like my privacy, but I preffered to stay in the 8-bed dorm because the room is such a cozy and peaceful place. The hostel is small and therefore it didn't feel like I was staying in a hostel, rather in a family house. The entire house is... More

Great Room - nice, big and spacious (mixed dorm). The "bar" closes at about 10pm but the hostel is very very close to the main city centre high street. Very friendly staff who make you feel welcome from the start. Great showers and clean bathrooms. No complaints what so Ever. I had a great stay. It's really easy to get... More

Ok, it's a little bit far by foot from stations but it is in the heart of the city. I was very well welcomed by night shift couple. And immediately discover Stolichno beer what they offer and what I recommend while you are in Bulgaria. Any way, in the big house very well secured with lots of space and lots... More
