“Raccomended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Located in a quiet street just 3 minutes away from Serdica metro station. It doesn't look great from outside but it's clean and comfortable inside. Room and bathroom were big. The only thing we didn't like was the temperature in the bathroom, it was freezing because of a hole in the window fixed with a piece of plastic.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This review was based on what I expect from a small value oriented guest house. The room was clean, properly priced, is in a safe and convenient location. The host was friendly and helpful. The bed was good if you like a pretty hard bed, the internet was good, the room had a good TV and there were several Channels in English. The bathroom was a small conbination shower toilet room, it was adequate and clean. The outside of the building is old and the owner says it is a historical property so that it can't be updated. Take note, that the cancellation leadtime is longer than normal, about a month. There was no chair in the room, which is common, but a simple chair would make the room more comfortable. Now for the bottom line, would stay there again, yes, would I recommend it to a friend, yes

As our first visit of Sofia we really liked this hostel a lot.ıt was very clean and well furnished with a big screen plazma tv in which was surprised us.The ambiance of the house was as warm as our own house.Also the location was so central only 5 minutes or so to the center.The staff lady was so nice.kind and helpful.

Once inside, the hostel is lovely. Not an easy place to find as the council restricts advertising on the outside of old buildings.The front door is just off the street in an alleyway and with a bit of common sense and deduction we found it quickly enough. Very clean and well furnished, the staff are friendly and the manager is extremely helpful and speaks very good English. We stayed a couple of days when we first arrived and were able to use the main kitchen sitting room area to make a conference call for work over Skype with no problems at all. After a weeks travelling it was easy to book our last night in Sofia here again. The hostel is central, providing easy access to the city centre and all its attractions. I would not hesitate to stay here again next time I come to Sofia.

I stayed here last weekend with my family and we rented 2 rooms in this small but really lovely guesthouse (the triple and the deluxe double) which has recently opened (6 months) in Sofia. From the outside the building looks a bit old (built in 1914) and decayed but when you enter the floor where the guesthouse is located it seems like a totally different building although it surely has the historical charm. Rooms are very clean, nicely decorated and spacious with high ceilings, wooden floors and clean bathrooms. The owner is really friendly and helpful in providing you with tips in terms of sightseeing, dining and clubbing. The guesthouse has a very good location and all the sights are in walking distance. Around the corner is a really nice car-free street with an artsy-kind of market from where you'll reach the mosque and the main street of Sofia. Parking is possible in front of the guesthouse (free of charge on weekends).
