Thanks to the owner and Simo (the administrator), who did his best to host me and to feel like I'm at home! You get nice view, tasty breakfast and calm atmosphere. What else.. hmm, ah, yes! Guys, it would be nice to replace the tap on the sink in the bathroom ;)

The hostel is nice and lovely made, but when we visited, everything was quite dirty everywhere. There is a great view to the fortres during the light show and it offers free breakfast and WiFi. Take the bus from the trainstation to the citycenter.

A little far out of the center but VT is small. A little disappointed with this one. It was recommended to me by their affiliate in Plovdiv so I gave it a shot. The beds are comfy and the room is good enough but the atmosphere is not that great - the staff, the only person working there was rather...

This hostel is for those who adore magnificent view and don't mind to climb up the hill a little. It has 2 bathrooms, kitchen and amazing terrace with a view on mountains. The owners are very nice, serve a good breakfast and make everything to make you feel like at home. I recommend it!

The hostel is great, located near to the hiking trail and many great bars and restaurants. The staff are extremely welcoming and very nice to talk to. We had gotten a bottle of home made rakija when we arrived. Sophie was great and cooked us a fantastic breakfast (Banica and ayran). Would recommend staying here.

I LOVED the hostel! From the second I entered, the whole place made me feel so comfortable as if I was home. There's a large lovely yard where you can enjoy your cup of coffee, having a terrific view over the hills! Mila is an amazing host who is easy to talk to and gives a very positive vibe. Wonderful...

I was planning on going to Hostel Mostel for their tour of the UFO building, but they were being really annoying and unhelpful about scheduling. After a MONTH of giving me the runaround, and with my departure date from Bulgaria pending, I finaly desperately called this hostel on a lead from a blog, and got the fabulous Mila on the...

This hostel wasn't as brightly painted as others might be, but it felt very relaxed and friendly. It was easy to spend too much time there with the friendly staff over a cup of coffee in the sunshine. I also felt like I was somehow part of a long line of historic hikers in staying here, that someday I will...

“We stayed in a 4-bed room and the 10-bed room, both of which were great. I'd still go with the 10-bed just because it is a little bit cheaper.”
