I chose to go to this hostel due to its high rating on website and it did not disappoint. Here, you have the best of everything, with accomodating and friendly staff, great location and very good price. It also has one of the softest beds I've ever experienced at a hostel!
++ The guesthouse Hello Sofia is located close o the city centre. You can reach everything by walking 5-10 minutes. Inside the guesthouse it´s very clean, comfortable and all facilities seem to be new and modern. -- When we arrived in Sofia they pretended nothing to know about our reservation, although we got confirmation letter. We didn´t got the room from the reservation and had to pay a higher price than it was written in the E-Mail! All in all the stuff worked NONPROFESSIONAL.
Very close to the center of the city, and not too far from the metro line. The staff were very friendly. The room was very spacious but didn't have much furniture in it. Our room faced the street essentially at ground level, though, so we could see and hear a lot of what was happening outside (which wasn't too noisy, thankfully).
The room I stayed in was newly remodeled. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was kind and gave advice and directions. It is also close to the metro and easy to reach the train or bus station. This is not a hostel and does not have the social atmosphere of a hostel. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable place to stay in Sofia, this is a good one.
Myself and my partner enjoyed our brief stay. The 'hostel' is much more typical f a british b&b (without breakfast) than a dorm style hostel. Well suited to us 40 somethings, spotless and full of character The host was friendly, helpful and welcoming, accommodating every request.
Lovely place, very close to the center and anything you might need. Staff were very nice and helpful.
