A nice restored 19-century house. There is no lack of bathrooms, there are two computers which actually work. Appreciate the coffee machine! I imagine the garden will be nice in the summer.

I stayed for only one night (I wish it could have been longer - next time!), but the hostel is wonderful. Great rooms, comfy beds, nice lounge area, clean and decent showers. But what really takes this hostel to the next level is the friendliness and enthusiasm of the owner Hristo and his staff. Hristo cheerfully arranged airport transfer for us, then car hire when we changed our plans. We were even greeted with our own personalised welcome sign on arrival! :) Recommended! Thank you again!

"Old Plovdiv Hostel" is a well preserved house from the 19th century. All the rooms are different along with the wide common area and the garden. The garden is especially nice because there are old trees and antique tap fountain. While chilling out in the garden you can sometimes hear the melodic guitars of the street musicians. I can imagine what would be in the summer or spring.The owners and the staff are lovely people. The breakfast is solid and very diverse and they even ask for preference.

This hostel is beautiful. It has an elegant look but a casual atmosphere. The staff are friendly and very helpful. They arranged airport transport and tours for me. It is clean and comfortable and they provide a good hearty breakfast. I do wish you could make your own food selection because there were some items that I didn't eat and I felt so wasteful. The only other thing is there are no lockers in the dorms. All in all this is one of the best hostels. I will absolutely stay here again.

Had a great time at the Old Plovsiv. there is no better place to stay! Really nice beds (no bunks), Uber friendly owner (seems to know everyone in town), great location, beautiful building and decent breakfast. The only fault is that the stairs are a little creeky but it really just adds to the authenticity.

Our stay at the Hostel was great. Hristo is a very welcoming host and takes time out of his day to chat to people and make everyone feel welcome. The facilities are great and the building itself is really nice. All in all much more than you would expect from a standard hostel.

More of a mix between hotel and hostel than your typical hostel, it was great, a really special building, excellent staff, very friendly and helpful. Nice, simple breakfast, good coffee machine! A little bit of walk to places to eat, located right in the old town. The one and only downside to this place is that it is noisy because it is an old building, so if you're a light sleeper this may be a problem.
