“HOSTEL OLD PLOVDIV PLOVDIV BULGARIA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

The Hostel Old Plovdiv is a wonderful place to stay. I was travelling alone so needed to feel safe and secure. The hostel has a 24 hour reception, and is staffed and managed in a friendly professional manner. The breakfast was good, with a vegetarian option, and the rooms really warm and comfortable/ I have travelled a great deal in Eastern Europe, and can honestly say this is the very best hostel I have ever had the pleasure to stay in.

This is one of the nicest guesthouses you may find in all of Eastern Europe. The staff even went out of their way to help us onto our next destination as well, with bus times, and hostel recommendations. The food is great, and the rooms are pristine. Definitely hope to come back here again.

We had a beautiful time at the Hostel Old Plovdiv. Initially we planned to spend the night but as the environment was so beautiful we stayed longer. The owner and the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are of a unique beauty, good breakfast, marvellous garden... It's just the perfect place to stay in Plovdiv.

The hostel old Plovdiv was a last minute decision between me and my travelling friend Kim. We both turned up and found the hostel fully exceeded our expectations. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. The room (We got upgraded from a dorm to a twin room) was great and full of character. Lastly the breakfast was very nice as well. A great selection with nice coffee also! Fully deserving 5 starts. I would certainly come back again next time I am in Plovdiv.

The hostelkeepers are life-affirming people make your journey start with a good beginning and you can feel the painstaking behaviour in every moment of time you spent there. Friendly welcoming messages, the bunch of lavender waiting on your bed, a clean and well-restorated room and beatiful breakfast-time in the garden are only a small part of the things that make here special...And to note ; the house is a good sample of Bulgarian Revival houses that you breathe history in every corner and you can even see Roman city walls in the winter breakfast room. I visited here several times with friends and family and recommend here as a good boutique hostel with good quality and a place that reflect the respect to history. And the best; really good and welcoming people always ready to help you and make your time better !!!

We felt that we travelled back in time , into the History of Plovdiv.The Guest house is amazing and I recommend it 100%.
You must keep in mind that this is a Hostel and not a 5 star Hotel.
You will meet the owner who is a great guy and the girls who are working there are more than helpfull and friendly.
It is located in the area with all the impotrant thinks to see and you shouldn't miss a close walk to the top of the hill just 400m away.
We will be back soon.

Liked everything there! Friendliness of the staff was especially outstanding! Never experienced such warm welcome as in Old Plovdiv =◕‿‿◕= I will stay again for sure, but next time try to avoid spend weekends there (cause of popularity of the place.
