This hotel is located in the ancient section of Plovdiv - perfect for exploring this area. The breakfast is rather limited and served in a dark area on the first floor. We were in a small room and after we noticed plumbing problems they moved us to a larger and very beautiful room on the top floor at no extra... More

Location is great (and easy to find), however... Our biggest problem was that the staff convinced us we can park outside the hostel but then the local police gave us a ticket, as it was absolutely forbidden to park in the Old Town. We got no excuse from the staff, no compensation, even no sympathy... The dormitory was crowded and... More

We only stayed here for one night on a tour of Bulgaria, but found it a lovely city, very pretty on the old hills and the guesthouse is in amongst the old town, but within easy walking distance of the central square surrounded by restaurants and cafes. The room was a typical hostel room but clean and with very effective... More

Dormitory tiny , no room to move with 10 beds and only 1 combined shower & toilet which was not cleaned whilst I was there (2 nights). Breakfast served between 8am to 10am allowing 9 mins in the (unclean) bathroom per person in order for all to attend breakfast. There was a charge to use the 'spare communal toilet 'downstairs...

My husband and I stayed at Plovdiv Guest House last night, and while it was adequate, it seemed nothing special. We had a friend who speaks Bulgarian call in our reservation ahead of time as indicated in the materials we found (no website or web reservations?) but when we arrived around 6pm they did not have us in the system....

The rooms in the guesthouse were ok, but we found the service unfriendly. The girl at the front desk seemed bored and unwilling to help whenever we asked her anything. Even though the building looks amazing on the outside, the inside lacks character, even though it's very clean. The wireless doesn't work in the rooms, so if you want to... More

Stayed here after a diastrous night in another hostel - and is far better! We paid in advance so got a discount and were able to wash and dry our clothes - although it does take a bit longer than we were told. The dorm rooms are the best - so spacious and the beds really comfortable. There is an... More

It is also in a great location in the old historic part of Plovdiv and with in walking distance to everything we wanted to see. I will likely be going back next year and will... More
