Overall good hostel but the common showers need regular cleaning, during my stay (2 nights), they have not been cleaned once (toilets have been cleaned but not the showers).

one of the nicest hostels i've stayed in! incredible nice staff (we accidentily booked for a different day, still got a room, yet actually more expensive, for the cheaper prize), huge common room, fast wifi. rooms are not the nicest, yet okay to sleep in. showers and toilets nice and clean! definitely worth a stay!

Great hostel, really good position in the city, they have breakfast and dinner very good, the atmosphere is great, all the people staying together in the really nice common room and the guys working there are so friendly and nice with everyone. They organise pub crawl around the city for free and in the common room you can watch tv, play pool or just relax! I really recommend to go to this hostel if you want a great experience in Sofia!

it's a very good hostel, the only minus is perhaps they have gotten too big (the problems of success) and hence lost some of their communal vibe, since the common room is always jam packed with so many people. but that's hard to blame them for... other than that, it had everything you would expect from a great hostel

Found this to be better than most hostels I have stayed with and really enjoyed the staff. Todd, Stan, and Braun Amir sorry if I miss spelled)were awesome and great to seek info from and even accommodating enough to let me leave an extra bag I had at the hostel for 2 and a half weeks locked up. I stayed in a single bedroom dorm for 2 nights and then 6 bed dorm for 3 nights. The breakfast and dinner were including and actually worth going to unlike any other hostel I have stayed at. worth booking

This is a pretty cool hostel. They have free breakfast and dinner. The breakfast is the most extensive breakfast - they have eggs, waffles, fruits and everything else. The dinner is also free, comes with a beer and they make three different plates so you have three choices. Staff here were pretty nice. We had a room in a different building that was really big and nice. I would stay here again.

The hostel was overbooked so we were checked into an apartment across the street. The rooms were clean and it had its own common area and kitchen, which was nice. The downside was that the atmosphere was lacking a little bit and you needed cross the street for breakfast or if you needed anything, not that big of a deal but slightly inconvenient.

All the staff were friendly and the free trips they offered such as hiking to the waterfall was outstanding and the price included breakfast and a decent evening meal.

Great common area where breakfast and dinner are eaten. Good location, close to everything but really quiet at night. There was no air con so it was a little hot at night. Sometimes I had to wait a while for a shower. Great day trips organised by the hostel.

Rooms on the first floor are very noisy as they all face outside to where people often hang out late and noise curfews aren't really enforced - not so good if you want some sleep. Also some odd people working there. That said, it's a good social hostel which isn't too far from the centre and is good value for money.

Helpful staff with good hints for Sofia. No support in further bookings in other hostels in Bulgaria. (only through email)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Art Hostel. Phillipe and his family were very welcoming and friendly and we were always provided with a healthy breakfast and variety of choices. As transport here can be a little unreliable Phillipe helped us to sort out our connecting buses and was always willing to go out of his way to ensure we were happy. The hostel has a really relaxed vibe compared to some of the others and has the coolest stairs. The hostel is located close to town and beaches.

Absolutely brilliant. Breakfast and dinner included; both tasty and fresh- the dinner was even vegetarian friendly. A bit of a trek from the train station, but not to bad, and close to the centre. We were allowed to store our luggage during the day, and also have dinner at the hostel again (for 4 lev) before our night train. Fantastic experience.
