Either the deluxe double room is underpriced or the standard double room is badly overpriced. If you have the option take the deluxe room!


If you want to enjoy the sleep don't book this hostel. We had 4bed bedroom (2bunk beds), beds are somehow hand-made which you can see on quality and every time somebody moves in bed you can hear loud creak. Everything is also very small and you can't sit inside the kitchen or common area, just garden. It is in the center so forget about parking a car during work days. Staff was so so, one girl quiet unpleasant, guy after her was cool.


While the beds were wide and not bunk beds, they were on the floor in a large, noisy loft. The loft amplified every sound, making it difficult to sleep, and since the beds were on the floor, you could feel every step. There was also no storage and no door to the dorm.


really nice staff. they go out of their way to help you. the location is bang in the center. the beds were very comfortable. would certainly recommend it


- staff excellent - Really clean room, really appreciate - A bit noisy, with the floor


The staff is really nice and the hostel is located in a relatively quiet place, yet really close to the center (less than 5 minutes walking). It has a great outside area, but rather limited common area and kitchen. Also the locker is never locked so leaving valuable there while you're away on an excursion (like I did) is at your own risks. Apart from that, the rooms are very cozy and the beds are really large for a hostel. Great hostel!


Excellent hostel just off the main street. Staff were excellent and couldn't be more helpful. The communal garden is a great place to have a chill night or day. Breakfast was great as was the homemade strawberry and elderflower juice. Would definately return.


Perfect hostel with very friendly hosts. I arrived at 1am during the night because my bus was delayed and I forgot the 1 hour difference between Macedonia and Bulgaria, but they were very friendly. I slept on their attic, which had simple but satisfying mattresses on wooden pallets. This really gave a cozy, friendly hostel feeling.


Amazing hostel, lovely people, yummy home made drinks! Thank you xxx


Nice place with some kind of character. Very nice dormitory upstairs like at home. The only thing is that it is under the roof so extremely hot in the late afternoon and at night after the sun cooked it literally. Would be absolutely perfect with air conditioned.
