friendly and helpfull


No overhead light in our room. Bathrooms were good. Extra wide beds were great. Evo was extremely helpful and very nice.


We felt really comfortable here! After a long overnight journey, the comfy, spacious beds were perfect. Miro helped us with everything and gave great tips, such as the free walking tour. The included breakfast was also really good and a great bonus. Overall, would definitely recommend it and come back!


No door, no locker, no talking outside even during the day, very poor breakfast, only very few possibilities to sit outside, poor beds


Great hostel with spacious dorm beds. The staff was friendly and helpful and they once even invited me to join and have pizza with them. The location is amazing - walking distance to the tourist attractions and nightlife of Sofia, but at the same time is in a quieter area to have that peaceful night's sleep. The only minor gripe is the lack of a nice indoor common area to meet other travellers, but the staff more than makes up for it. I had a great 4 nights in Sofia and would definitely return!


Milo was great! Breakfast was great! Very clean.


This is one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. So calm and relaxed with a lovely friendly vibe. Very centrally located - literally right in the city centre on a nice leafy side street. The breakfast changes daily as it's made by whoever is on working. It Would have been nice to have the standard cereal / toast available also but the breakfasts were filling. If you want a calm place to sleep with friendly people and comfy beds then stay here.


Directions unclear. When you exit metro, walk on the pedestrianised promenade. Got in late and Zlati (sp?) was very welcoming as was the daytime manager. The homemade breakfast was a nice touch. Bathrooms were kept clean and although only 2 toilets and showers, never had to wait. Our main issues were: - noise late at night. - bunk beds (4 bed dorm) were creaky and felt unsafe - staff seemed overworked. -no real common room except the garden.

Thank you for the feedback. We take it as recommendations and already fixed the creaky beds :)


We booked the top floor (a room of 8) and it was perfect for us! The room offers something a bit different to the usual room of bunks. Good character and loads of space!


Fantastic place, good food, nice dudes. Cheers Miro and staff for everything.

The hostel is not really big, which I liked. There is a small common room downstairs. Some beds are big, but the mattresses are normal-sized. Make sure you ask, when breakfast should be ready. I highly recommend the free city walk and the food tasting tour!


Very nice place, very cozy and clean. The staff was very kind, also the security in the hostel was very good. It not expensive and we enjoyed the time spend there.
