By far the worst place I have been in. The rooms are the size of a double closet. Windows don't close good so if you are there in September you freeze. Bath and shower on top of each other. To save time you can take a shower at the same time you are using the toilet. Beds super narrow and... More

The hostel is not far away from the city centre, just 10 minutes walking. The staff is helpfull and friendly, speaking a good English. Our room was very small and uncleaned (we had to dispose of trash by ourselves because nobody did it in 4 days!). During the night we didn't sleep cause we heard every voice and rumor from... More

The staff were incredibly helpful throughout our stay, knowing bus and train times and prices off by heart it seemed,... More

We recently stayed here with our two children. The place was very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. It was very central and a great location but also very quiet as it is set back from the street. I would recommend it if you just want somewhere to sleep without having to pay the large prices for a... More

The Sofia Guesthouse has a very good location, the staff are very friendly and helpful and it is cleaner than your average hostel. The “all-you-can-eat” breakfast is indeed continental. One piece of advice. Beware, particularly if you take a private room, that there is no privacy at the Sofia Guesthouse. Walls are paper thin, so you’ll hear everything ( I... More

We stayed at the Sofia Guesthouse apartment which was pleasant enough. The only problem was that according to their website the apartment was part of the Sofia Guesthouse (which is fairly central) but was in fact about a ten -fifteen minute walk away going out of town. The breakfast was good but we had to walk to the main guesthouse... More
