“Great Hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

I was unfortunately sick during my stay in Sofia and the guys at Canapé were really helpful! The hostel looks beautiful (though i haven't seen the new one, but I bet it's great). It's really clean and the staff are very friendly.

The two weeks which me and 5 of my other crew from Britian spent at Canape Connection was ''THE'' best of all time. The hostel in itself is self catered to suit all your needs with specialist hostel staff, you are bound to feel more comfortable and relaxed during your stay. You are closer at hand to outdoor dining resturants, shopping malls, entertainment, tourist destinations - you name it. So I'd rank Canape Connection to be the best hostel (compard to all other rivals) you'd find in terms of it's price and personal satisfaction. Take my word for it and you will know the difference yourself. All the best folks and please don't forget the ''breakfast delicacies'' catered at Canape Connection - they are simply delicious!!!! :)

An excellent all-round experience staying at this hostel; conveniently located, helpful & friendly staff, clean & comfortable rooms and excellent breakfasts! Warmly recommended if you want your stay to be relaxing, sociable and interesting. Great atmosphere - London hostels could learn a lot!

I've been in a lot of hostels in Europe and I can say Canapè is one of the best place to stay travelling.
It's clean, confortable, with a particolar atmosphere: wall stickers, hot colours, bunk beds or confortable beds on the floor, two showers and two bathrooms, a nice courtyard where is great have breakfast (they are really good to prepare it) or stay speaking with the people. Everything is relaxed and friendly.
The guys are really friendly and do 24/24 h service, always ready to give you advices and answer your questions.
It could look like an advertising but it's my real opinion.
I've been in Sofia two times with them and always was like be at home.

I am originally from Bulgaria but spent 10 years in the U.S. /studying and working/. I am now back in Bulgaria and travel to Sofia regularly to catch up with friends and to go to an occasional concert. I always stay at Canape because of its unique vibe and friendly atmosphere. The founders are two great girls who always go the extra mile to make the guests feel comfortable and welcome. For example, they sometimes organize dinners with home-cooked food, bake the best cookies ever, put together movie nights as well as organize performances by local artists at the hostel /dancers, singers, actors, etc./. There's great energy at all times!!!
There are tons of foreigners from around the world so you can always hook up with others to explore the city. Lot's of distractions in Sofia - great clubs, bars, live music, art scene, etc.
The hostel also puts together guided tours to the main sights the city has to offer.
The rooms are very clean, you can always ask for stuff if you forgot it /in my case a towel; every single time.../. They even offer a light breakfast which is awesome...
The hostel very centrally located and you can easily walk anywhere. No doubt, CANAPE is the best hostel in Sofia!!!
