We stayed one night last week in Hiker's Hostel and it was very nice, especially the hosts, which invited us in the evening for a drink, recommended us different places and things to do and were very nice in general. The dorm was a typical dorm and all the beds were separated with curtains, what gave each of us some... More

The staff is so nice and welcoming that you will feel at home from the moment you arrive. Situated in one of the narrow streets in the old town, the location is perfect to explore the city. Walking distance to bus/railway station. Nice garden with hammock, shadowy trees and an outdoor lounge. There is even an outdoor kitchen — at... More

We stayed in Hikers hostel for one night on Lonely Planet's recommendation. The location and the room was nice and the staff very helpful and friendly. The bed on the other hand was really bad and noisy. I couldn't find a good position for the whole night on the uncomfortable bed and every little movement I made caused so much... More

Stefan, your host, makes this a great place. He knows everything to be done in Plovdiv and is very helpful and friendly. I was lucky and stayed at the adjunct property a few streets away from the main hostel which was clean and safe in all ways.

After Lonely Planet's good review we stayed here for one night and then moved as quickly as possible. We stayed in the dorm in the main location, which is very small and has awfull beds. The hostel's only toilet was located in the shower, dirty, and the door could not be locked, yet it was inconviently located next to the... More

Hiker's has an ok location up in the historic old part of town, but a close-enough walk to the main drag where you'll find everything you need. It's a small place with an intimate atmosphere, and thought the Bulgarian staff were exceedingly helpful and friendly. There's also a free basic breakfast, free wi-fi, cheap laundry that you do your yourself... More

I stayed at this hostel for a few nights. What really made the hostel special for me was the warm welcome of the staff. I arrived very early in the morning after a long and tiring night bus trip from Istanbul. The staff were lovely offering me coffee, free breakfast and making me feel right at home right away. The...

The hostel has an absolutely top location - directly in the old town of Plovdiv. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the overall ambiance is great. However the shower/toilet area could have been somewhat cleaner and mainly bigger. The rooms (we slept in an 8-bed dorm) are comfortable and clean.

The location is perfect. It is a short walk to both old and new towns. The staff were very nice and helpful. There is a nice relaxed atmosphere in the main building/garden. We were placed in a separate building to the main hostel. There was only one working 'shoilet' for the building (apparently there was another but it was broken).... More

Great hostel in the heart of the old town in Plovdiv. Staff is nice and helpful. You can pitch a tent in the yard. I planned to stay 2 nights but ended staying 1 week. They organise nice barbeques outdoors and cheap day trips. Just ask at the receprion.
