At about £30 a night each we got a double room at Big Apple. We used their shuttle service to collect us from the airport (he was waiting for us at the airport) and the friendly reception staff have been helpful for booking excursions.
The roof terrace is great for the breakfast in the mornings although the breakfast spread is ok but fairly unremarkable. Boiled eggs were the highlight.
The best thing about Big Apple is the location. It's a 5 min walk from The Blue Mosque and Sofia and maybe 15mins from The Bazar. It's not as lively as other hostels in the area but you can always drink in the others then retire back here. Thoroughly recommended.
