“Good Place to Stay in Plovdiv”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Nice clean hostel. The staff are awesome. Angel, one of the staff members, cooked us some really tasty lentil soup and he is very helpful.

The location is excellent - very close to the town centre and old town.

The hostel itself is very cosy and it was really nice to have some downtime there. My only complaint would be that the shower in the downstairs bathroom is pretty much useless. The shower head doesn't mount on the wall, so you need to hold on to it, and the shower is surrounded by a flimsy curtain, so the bathroom floor gets flooded.

Room Tip: The private room was spacious.

The hostel is good, staff very friendly and helpful.

The rooms are clean, we were in shared bathroom accommodation, the rooms were good, bathroom is also clean but could be better, specially the shower curtains.

Don't miss the dinner, it is awesome and is home cooked!! :).

I was only here for one night, and it wasn't very busy. Comfy beds, clean facilities, rooms seemed very spacious for the amount of beds. Night reception can be spotty (wasn't there when I first arrived). Friendly staff, they took the guests out for a beer to a "hidden" bar off the main square. Good Wifi connection. Only 3 bathroom/showers so I can see how these can get busy. About a 20 min walk from the bus/train station, 10 minute walk to the Old Town. Overall a fine hostel, no complaints.

I stayed initially two nights, after visiting Hostel Mostel in Sofia. This hostel is different to the one in Sofia: smaller, less busy, relaxed like the city itself. It is a good place to relax between two big, busy cities like Sofia and Istanbul are.

I've been there with 12 friends and we had one very big room accommodating all of us. We had a lot of fun and all the beds were comfortable! The lady managing it, was very friendly but little angry at us cause we didn't understand her at one point…

The price is cheap and includes a beer and dinner… basic dinner but good enough for a traveler on a budget!!

They have one computer with free internet accessible 24/7!

The staff are excellent. The dorms are clean and bright. The beds are comfortable. The location is good - around half way between the railway and bus stations and the old town in a quiet street. It's excellent value for money with a light dinner, a beer and breakfast included in the price.
Now for the "buts". On the main floor there are ~14 dorm beds (some are singles that look as though they could have top bunks added to them to bring the total number of beds to ~20) but there is only one toilet and two showers. There is only one computer. The garden, which could be nice, is overgrown and full of garden rubbish. The seating in the common room is a tired old blue leather sofa and chairs matched with a smoked glass coffee table - not great for eating breakfast off.
It felt like it could be so much better with a bit of investment.
