Really well located hostel, with friendly staff and awesome atmosphere! truly worth your money!


Party in the basement bar (which is really nice!) all weekend long. Nearly no possibility to sleep. Everything looks nice, a lot of painting but that doesn't help you getting enough sleep for discovering the city. Nice and helpfull staff though.


Awesome hostel in the heart of Sofia. The art and atmosphere of the hostel was truly one of kind unique. It reminded me a lot of the ruin bars in Budapest. The bar downstairs was a great place as well, similar decor and a true locals bar, great for meeting local Sofia-ites. If you want a unique hostel experience, then the Art Hostel is your place!


There should be a 'atmosphere level: have no words'. It's a home abroad, music, friendship, art... a place where you feel confortable and easy going, a point where rest your mind and let your soul wander. Amazing.


Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great live music the night we stayed also!


Looked like a nice place. No complaints.


... just very relaxed and friendly atmosphere ... we will com back!

Great place, close to bars and restaurants!


Art Hostel is definitely a party hostel and a place to meet travelers. It is close to city sights but using public transport is best to use if one doesn't like to walk too far.


Rooms was stinking like damp. Location is excellent.


The place is absolutely great & the staff is amazingly friendly & helpful. One thing, however: the showers upstairs are beginning to get a bit moldy - you might want to do something about this (before it becomes really bad). Thank you for a great time!


Art Hostel had a very good vibe. The staff was very relaxed and friendly and answered any of the questions I had. They have a really cool basement bar with a ton a interesting graffiti in it and a cool garden outside to relax. It was pretty easy to meet people and a good location to the main city. The only thing I would say I didnt like was that there was a young school there at the same time of a bunch of 17 year olds so would of been better with more travelers my age. Good Hostel though.


Hostel was really great, with great staff.


Friendly staff, clean place. No lockers/storage for things in the dorm rooms.
