Well, it is a very good location. It can hardly be better. The stuff is ok, helpful. Usually I'm not asking too much from a hostel: one important thing is cleanliness... it was bellow average.

The owner really makes this hostel what it is. Typical Bulgarian hospitality, Always happy to give advice, cook you breakfast or point you towards a great local restaurant. Very central and close to pretty much everything. Very sociable little place. I'd go back in a second when I'm back in Sofia.

I spent there a few nights. It was hard to find, but it's location it's great. There is an open market with books and stuff in front of it, a nice restaurant to eat something cheap right below it, and a great take away food in the square. It's also close to many bars and so.
The hostel is fine, clean, comfy beds, lockers, free internet... but the best part is the staff. They were really friendly and welcoming.
When we went there it was July, and it was totally empty, and the atmosphere was kinda strange, but still it felt safe and quiet. Not a place to meet people tho.

I was with the flu when i arrived and the first few days i spent in bed. there was always a warm cup of tea and plenty of extra blankets for me when i wanted. very kind people and a great family vibe. i was very happy i stayed here! they made such good food i couldn't resist even though i asked for somewhere else to eat as soon as i smelt what they had cooked i decided to have a night in.
