Fantastic crue! :) Very helpful and understanding. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable! :)


Lovely Hostel, great garden, nice staff AND guests.


Nice hostel, good location, garden is a fantastic place to unwind with a beer and bar downstairs gives the place a bit of an upbeat vibe in the evenings. No lockers in rooms and persistent issues with the wifi while i was there, (although a couple of PCs in the lobby were usually free).

An amazing hostel, probably top three in the ones I've stayed in. The 'oldness' is definitely part of its charm, in creating a welcoming atmosphere for any travelers willing to meet new people and hear new stories. The facilities can seem a lil old (granted, cause of the setup of the building) but other than that a worthy place to stay for great memories.


Hostel is OK, stayed just one night, beds arent that great but the garden and the bar in the basement are awesome!


It's an interesting place since the bar is also a local hang out - I had fun meeting Bulgarians. Great place to stay if you are backpacking - especially alone.


We were 4 friends staying here for 3 nights, the art hostel staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming, the garden is beautiful and has the best atmosphere, the bar is also wonderful and the art decor is brilliant. The place has a lot of character and there are lovely people to be met. Pub crawls come through the hostel garden/bar often so there is chance to meet even more people who aren't staying in the hostel. We had a great time here and met some great people!! Definitely recommend.

Their private rooms are beautiful and immaculate. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I found some bugs on my pillows in the dorm rooms, told staff and they took care of the situation right away. Really good people and stay all around, very central location. Definitely want to stay in their private rooms again, they were perfect!


Great Place, loved it.
