Was meant to be there for 3 nights but hostel was having issues with HostelWorld so only ended up staying 1 night. Was a little annoyed at this. Location isn't super great. But could be worse. Staff seemed relatively helpful and very keen to sit and drink with everyone
This was a lovely hostel with friendly helpful staff and owner. They really look after guests, with advice, food and even washed and dried my shoes when I got lost in the forest (great for trekking) during a thunderstorm! They also have a hostel in Varna (Flag hostel) and one in Plovdiv (Hikers) I ended up staying in all three and received the great service in each. It's also a great spot to see the light show for free and staff can advise on trips to the UFO - well worth a visit too!
The two highlights at Hikers hostel are the amazing view of the castle (the hostel is on a hill above the city) and the manager - Alex. He is extremely helpful, friendly and relaxed. He makes delicious breakfast pastries and always makes sure the guests are happy. The location is a bit inconvenient if you have to lug a heavy bag (taxis don't go all the way up) but the view is well worth it. The hostel also has plenty of places to chill out and a very relaxed vibe.
Excellent place to stay. The staff is very helpful.
clean hostel and staff friendly will use again
