“Very basic hostel”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This hostel was in a great location and was fine for the price but given we booked a double private room we had anticipated getting a double bed not a bunk, the bathroom is one big wet room which means everything in there gets wet (including the 1/3 of a roll of toilet paper ). The owners were lovely and very helpful but the manager speaks no english at all. It's fine for one night but not for much more. While the hostel maybe new it is poorly finished with draws that don't work, paint splattered up the walls and poor quality bathroom finishes.

Room Tip: The Main Street is only two blocks away

Reviewed September 9, 2011

Sofia Peace Hostel opened very shortly before I arrived so everything is new. I found the staff to be exceptionally happy and helpful.

It's right in the centre of the city and due to a special price they have on a hostel booking website it's by far the cheapest hostel in Sofia. But despite being in the heart of the city it's tucked way in a kind of hidden courtyard which keeps it amazingly quiet and peaceful.

The kitchen is quite small if there are lots of guests. If you stay in the cheap dorm it is up a few flights of stairs and the shower wasn't working very well but they were trying to fix it.

I felt so comfortable there I stayed four days instead of just one.
