I have stayed here 3 times and it is good value for money and in a good location. The room is comfortable and has a balcony. The staff are friendly and speak different languages. The young woman speaks English and two gentlemen speak Russian and Spanish.
The guest house is in a good location, just off a very trendy street which has a lot of great eateries. But it stops about there. The rooms were very dated and uncomfortable. Luckily we only stayed one night and left early in the morning, not the kind fo place you would like to spend lots of time hanging around. Make sure to call and ask to check if parking is available as well. The gate wasn't working when we arrived and the road works on the street made parking impossible.
[ENG] I've visited Sofia for the first time and "Be my guest" turned out to be my choice for the stay. We got a bedroom for two (two twin size beds next to to one another and a private bathroom with a showe) for 25 euros (booked two days prior to the trip) and I was very pleased. It is not perfect but for travelling on budget it actually is. Also, the location is great. It is less than 10 minutes from the Nevsky church, and most of the main attractions are within walking distance (Vitoska street, National palace of culture, main plaza, stadiums, Borisova gradina, Serdica remains under the ground, Sveta Nedelya church etc). I went to Sofia by car and they had a private parking space waiting for me. Both senior and the younger gentleman were polite. [SRB] Имајући у виду да је у питању хостел и да је намењен путницима који новац троше на важније ствари него што је то смештај, овај хостел заслује петицу. Два дана пред долазак сам букирао собу за двоје са приватним туш купатилом за 25 евра за дан. Уз то сам имао и место да паркирам кола пошто сам из Београда ишао у сопственом аранжману, да бих обишао још и Поганово, Стару планину и нека друга места. Локација је одлична. До Цркве Александра Невског треба 10 минута, а близу су и Витошка улица, Национална палата културе, остаци Сердике, главни трг, Борисова градина, стадиони, Орлов мост, Црква Свете недеље (у којој су мошти краља Милутина), ма све. Старији господин разбира српски малко, енглески исто тако, али је готован, док Дзидзо зна инглиш доста боље. Све у свему, петица.…
The best thing for us was that this hostel is not trying to be something it isnt. Its located on perfect location next to all the important sights and shishaman st. The crew is friendly and helpful. We loved the old house with wooden floor. We dont like new plastic places so it was perfect for us. Although old, we had hot water all the time.
The hostel is in a small house and the owners live there. You can't get rid of the feeling that you're staying at their place. It lacks some equipment and a common area, the kitchen is small and I felt like I was intruding into their living room. In short, it doesn't have a hostel atmosphere if that is what you're looking for. But everything i clean, the beds comfortable and the place quiet. Also, it's situated a at the very centre of the city, a short walk away from most touristic spots. Just for that I'd stay there again, and it's quite cheap!
