Everything was excellent. My friend and I arrived late because we were clubbing in Sofia. The host expected us and all the documents were ready to sign. The hostel is very colourfully decorated and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The only unpleasant thing for me was a particular smell of something that I did not like.


It was a great hostel within walking distance from the main shopping center and the NDK metro station. The staff was great. They had a good time with us, and they really made the experience fun.


We had a great time staying at the Art Hostel. We have booked another stay in January, we liked it so much. This time we won't have as much problem with jet lag, so we can hang out in the bar more!


Very recommended, very welcoming place, 24hour reception and great value for money.

Right in the middle of downtown Sofia, tons of restaurants and bars around. The downstairs bar as well as the garden is pretty sweet and convenient. Staff is very friendly and helpful, especially Filip!


Great place. Near city center, greta stuff and great atmosphere. Totally recommend the bar and the garden. Totally recommended.


Very happy with this hostel. Good vibe in the garden and the whole place. Bar downstairs is cool and good breakfast. Lax and friendly staff. Everything worked well.


This is definitely a party hostel. The building is very old but fascilities are good. Security is a bit too tight. You have to buzz someone to get in every time, and then use your keys. Breakfast was great. Not a bad place to stay.


It is not about the location, staff or cleanliness. It is about awesomeness. Not sure what works but it does. The garden sure helps. The bar is a great great place. Had a jazz concert one night, the rest of the time, they were playing chilled electro, hip hop and the like (ie: not really stiff that will keep you from sleeping). The crowd is sort of hippie free spirited. Great people, awesome vibe.


Location is awesome The atmosphere is a bit of a mixed bag. The bar is cool with some awesome art, and the live music shows on Friday and Saturday are great, but most of the people you'll see around are either locals coming to hang out or long-term stays, so it feels a bit cliquey, but people are friendly. WiFi was good. Noise level wasn't as bad as some reviewers say - the bar closes at 1am and with earplugs the noise was barely audible from the room. Could use another toilet and shower though


You could invest more in the shower
