“Great place, perfect location, top!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We have been there already two times and it was always a perfect time in canapé connection. Very central location and silent place as well, art designed rooms, breakfast/dinner in the garden, last but not least very helpful and cool staff. They have provided us a map, good recommendations and also being quite polite with us and our children. We met there some nice people and had a lot of fun together!

Be back again!

Wow, what a hostel! This place has character as soon as you walk into it!

The staff are friendly and helpful. Beds are comfy, and bathrooms clean. Breakfast is homemade and traditional Bulgarian and differs everyday.

Location could not be better. Walking distance to everything!

Wifi works. Bathrooms cleaned daily. Everyone is happy!

I hope to be back here very soon!

This hostel is perfectly situated right off the main walking street in the heart of Sofia. The room I stayed in was the 4-bed dorm. It was very clean and comfortable, the ability to close the curtains around the bed and have some privacy was wonderful. I even had pancakes made for me in the morning as well as freshly brewed coffee, I couldn't believe my luck. The staff were all very friendly and kind and helped me out deciding what to do in the evening. There are many trips available at additional prices but I sadly didn't have time to take them up. I felt safe walking back to the hostel by myself which I was worried might be an issue late at night but it was fine. The bathroom as people have said is not super private but if the curtain is closed to the bathroom....you don't walk in. I wasn't worried about this because everyone is in the same position. I didn't and still don't have a single bone to pick with this place. FANTASTCI VALUE FOR MONEY.

Room Tip: The 4 bed dorms are near to the entrance but I never heard anyone clanging around late at night. The...

Tye Canape connection gets a lot of good reviews on Hostelworld and Tripadvisor. i have to admit the rooms were very comfortable (oh yeah, 2 meters almost fits in!) and the staff did a lot to help us! Thumbs up big time! The amosphere in general was good and the coffee in the morning was very welcome and creates a homely atmosphere. Some places just give yiu that welcome, homely feeling... If I have to name some downsides: the showers are a little difficult. Not very private indeed. But you will survive. And the private rooms downstairs are located near the kitchen, which is sometimes very noicy and the doors don't really blok the noise. So earplugs might be necessary. However, don't let you hold that back, it is a lovely place to stay!

Had a blast of a time in Canape Connection, both at the start as at the end of a two weeks trip through Southwest Bulgaria. Splendid location, comfortable rooms and beds, clean bathrooms and toilets, all served by a really helpful and friendly staff. And your right Ivo, the latest album of Alice in Chains is a cracker... ;-)

Backpackers tend to stay in lots of nondescript places which all blur into one but Canapé is one we aren't likely to forget. The decor is awesome (we stayed in the private downstairs twin room with paint splashed concrete walls) and the staff are really helpful and friendly. One TINY nag is the bathroom isn't very private, but that wouldn't stop me from staying here again

Very nic eplace in the city downtown. The big dorm is quite charming, cause it's an attic made of wood. The staff is very gently and attentive, helpful and really nice. The hostel is peaceful and with a small graden outside. And the breakfast are really good!
