“The staff were very helpful !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2011

Although my room was in the 20 dorm attic, it wasn't too bad. They had a massive group in, and it was the only place they could fit me! The staff were excellent. The walking tour was definitely worth it. Very fascinating. (Make sure you tip, they deserve it). Free dinners were a great touch, even if they are pretty simple. Good Internet.

The staff was exceptional! We had issues with our luggage and they made several calls on our behalf, even calling to the places where we stayed after we left. We can't say enough about "Stan the Man" and all the staff that worked during our stay. Great value, especially considering that two meals and beer are included.

Room Tip: rooms next to street, those that are away from the main building, are noisy

After few weeks of traveling, it was great to find this place. The staff gave us a full brief of what to do a where to go, with free map, show where to get free tour and more. Great value for money, and they even let us pay for three beds, instead of four. Good lounge/common area to chill out, perfect for when you want a slow start to your day. Good breakfast, compared to many you get. All in all good time, the place to stay in Sofia.

This place was amazing! We walked in at 5 am and they greeted us warmly with a comprehensive home made city guide allowing us to see everything! This place fosters a super social, cafe atmosphere as well. Staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. The house offers free spagetti and beer as well! Simply the best hostel I've ever been to.

Great hostel in the heart of Sofia! Brilliant staff! These guys and gals are so friendly and helpful, they should give seminars to hostel staffs around the globe! It's not just that they went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that I get my anti-rabies injection without a glitch. They are always there for the guests, making sure that the enjoy their stay in Sofia to the fullest. It doesn't get much better than this! =) Cool hostel with lots of personality. Highly recommended!
