Stayed here during my stay in Sept 2014. So far the best hostel in Sofia I have stayed. Lots of. Crazy fun people from all over the world. I recommend this place to stay. Good staff and a good breakfast and dinner.

Fantastic service, great facilities and the room/bed was to a good standard. When my party walked in and got relatively settled we were given a full guide to the hostel as well as Sofia - the woman explained all the best places to drink, eat and go so that we would have the best stay possible. The common room area,... More

I stayed with my girlfriend and another couple for three nights. Overall we had a decent time, happy with some things, less happy about a few others. The good: - Location, we were in their apartments a few minutes south of the main building. They're in a nice neighborhood, close to a lot of restaurants, shopping, the main walking boulevard...

Helpful staff, tasty food and fun vibe. Only downside my bed was uncomfortable and some sections of the hostel are several streets away from the reception. They also provide desktop computers and dinner. Side note for those traveling to Sofia and getting the airport bus, you have to buy a ticket before getting on board from some mythical kiosk that...

We were a group of 2 couples in our early 30s. We stayed at HM because of rave reviews and friends that recommended it. I wouldn't recommend it for couples, or even seasoned travelers. The check in/out process was smooth. The employees were SUPER nice. Breakfest was ok (waffles, eggs, fruits, yogurt) and we did not eat dinner there. We... More

We chose the cheapest room which was described as a 16 bed dorm, on arrival we were shown into a loft room with 2 lines of foam mattresses on the floor. Lighting was extremely poor and it was very hot in the roof. Lockers were provided. The 2 showers and 3 toilets did not only seem to be shared by... More

Following the hostel directions it is easy enough to find this place, however it looks a little dingy with a sign on a dodgy doorway. Nonetheless, once you open the door you enter a courtyard opening up onto a building full of character. This has to be the best 'value for money' place I stayed in during my 6 weeks... More

The hostel is located a bit behind the main street through a locked door. It’s a bit hard to find if you’re trying to get there without help, but the hostel offers cheap pick-ups (highly recommended). Because the hostel is located behind the main street, it’s quiet and chill. The dorm rooms and bathrooms are clean, though the floors are... More
