We only stayed at The Hikers Hostel one night but we loved it and would highly recommend it. We had a double bed in the big dorm which was comfy and had some privacy as there were curtains around the bed - also the views from the dorm are amazing! Really nice common area with self catering facilities, excellent location... More

The first hostel I ever stayed in, and it didn't disappoint. We walked in with no reservation but Paulina said no problem, get yourself a coffee and a shower, we'll have a bed for you in an hour or so. I could have kissed her after a 27 hour journey to get there. Very relaxed atmosphere, friendly and involving. Loved... More

The place has a nice common area. However it is badly run, on check in I had to wait about 40 min until they worked out what beds are free. I also booked to go on a day trip but never went because one of the drivers was drinking until 6am in the outdoor terrace at the hostel and was... More

Had an incredible time in this place! The hostel is located in the middle of the old town close to all the Ottoman style houses and museums. The fortress is a 5 minute walk from the hostel. I stayed in the main dorm on the ground floor. It was big but never felt overcrowded. Bathrooms are very spacious and very,... More

I stayed in the 4 bed dorm in the attic which was pretty spacious and comfortable. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the location was great and the regular barbecues are great for relaxing and socialising. Really homely place. Would definitely go back.

Very friendly people and home atmosphere. I had a nice stay there despite the small room with 12 beds. They are spontaneously organising barbeques and trips, but unfortunately I couldn't catch any of them. I would visit this place again but make a reservation first, especially in the summer and if you're not alone.

Dorms are a bit cramped (triple-decker) and there are no lockers, but helpful staff are happy to store your stuff and the place is clean and well-run. Good common room, great yard with cosy picnic table; staff will look up information if they don't have it. A young but friendly crowd. Great location, right in the gorgeous old town, a... More

The hostel is located in the center of the old town of Plovdiv, which is an excellent location. The staff was very friendly and helped us to find some places to go out (although she had to admit that most of the partying occurs in the coastal cities during summer). There is room to chill in the garden as well... More
