Found this place on TripAdvisor (thanks again for this app) during a long drive home from 1500km. Just wanted to get some sleep and a shower. The landlady made a good bargain, offering me a single person room in the basement. Nothing more was necessary. Half the full price for few hours of sleep, plus a free coffee. €8, that's... More

The hospitality of the owner Veselka was excellent. The hostel is excellent starting with the awesome location in the city (only few minutes of walk to the centre and to the docks of the Danube). It is situated in a quiet alleyway only 50m of the main boulevard in Ruse and provides excellent nights sleep. We didn't want breakfast in... More

Very nice place to stay in Ruse. The lady hosted us in the middle of the night as we had no train to Bucarest and not only we discovered a lovely city by accident but also a cosy place to have a rest. we enjoyed the kindness of the owner and the peacefull atmosphere.

We enjoyed our stay. Attractions are walking distance. Owner is very accomodating and friendly. The only negative is that you have to prepare your own breakfast especially when you are in a rush to see the attractions. Also had difficult time finding the place as the area is only one way.

I was at EGH for 2 months. Staff is super, facility is immaculate, room is comfortable. I could work (computer) in the lounge or my room. Breakfast is all a person needs. Location is absolutely the best: Danube is 200 meters away, city center is also 200m meters away. Feels like home as best it can. You can cook in... More

This guest house is exactly what is says on the tin. Do not expect a 3 star hotel or anything of that nature. It is a bed, somewhere to get ready and go out. Vesa, the manager, was a lovely lady and spoke great English. I was given room 3 on the ground floor which has its own bathroom instead... More

I was deeply impressed with the owner who opened the door to me at 4am on a Saturday morning, without a word of complaint. I had a very relaxing weekend in this most beautiful town and enjoyed the delicious breakfast provided by the guest house, much more variety and imagination than one would normally find. The room was great and... More

I stayed at the English Guest House for the first time in August 2010, halfway through an epic trip in an ancient Land Cruiser from Burgas in Bulgaria to Cluj-Napoca in Transilvania. Having the occasion to pass through Ruse again (this time in the reverse direction), this was my first choice for accommodation. I booked at a few hours' notice,... More
