Great hostel with amazing staff. Welcome signs are a great personal touch! The staff have good suggestions on what to do and where to eat/drink. The wifi is good. Lovely outside area to relax and have the good breakfast provided. Right in the old town and close to the main centre. Really enjoyed my stay. P.S Petia is great!!!!

Arguably the best hostel I have ever stayed in... and I have stayed in a lot of hostels. This place alone is already worth a trip to Plovdiv.

I unfortunately didn't get to stay at the Hostel due to some travel issues that came up after I had already booked, however Hristo was more than accommodating. Can't put into words how strongly I will recommend this place for others. Will definitely endeavour to return.

This was probably one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the whole hostel has great atmosphere and lots of character. Plovdiv is a a fantastic place to visit and if you come stay here.

Great location. Great facilities. Great staff. Great manager. Hirsto (the manager) helped a lot in what I asked. The bathroom+shower are flawless, just like in the pictures :) Nice and simple breakfast, at a great dining place. In short: GREAT!

An outstandingly good hostel. The internet was indeed very fast - consistently 18Mbps. Staff were extremely helpful and beds were very comfortable. Lighting could've been a bit better in the downstairs dorm room, but not a huge issue. Breakfast was good, although I felt sorry for the girls working there as I found out they stayed up all night to prepare breakfast from 4-5am. I certainly wouldn't have had an issue with serving the food for myself!

I had a fantastic stay here at Hostel Old Plovdiv. The staff were lovely, the hostel clean and welcoming and it's situated right in the old town near the top of this beautiful lookout. My only issue was that there were no lockers but that's a pretty minor thing and otherwise I really, really recommend this place.

I booked my stay at old Plovdiv 2/3 hours before check in and I arrived to a poster with my name welcoming me. It was truly welcoming, homy feeling and everyone was very friendly especially Hristo and his team. I actually decided to extend one more day and this was entertained and made possible. My stay was quite a personalized experienced; everyone called me and others by name, Hristo makes sure he spends some time with all guests and he also remembered what the rest of my trip was

When I arrived a welcome sign in my own language and my name was displayed along with other guests all scattered around the reception area which was very welcoming as it was anyway. I thought this was a lovely touch and I haven't seen this at any other guesthouse. The staff were really friendly, helpful and the general atmosphere was wonderful. I don't normally write a review for guesthouses but I really feel the need to do so because of the terrific experience I had for my short stay here!

Only managed to stay in this beautiful hostel for 1 night, but had a really nice time. The location is perfect, right in the middle of the old town, and the building is stunning, with a lovely terrace at the back. Hristo was incredible and gave excellent advice, not just about Plovdiv but also about the next stop on our trip, and there was even a welcome sign up for us when we arrived! Quiet in the evening, too. Thanks, Hristo!

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Thank-you so much to Hristo and the staff for being so wonderful and friendly. We loved Plovdiv, and the hostel was a great highlight of our trip. The building is beautiful and historically interesting. I decided to visit Plovdiv after seeing this hostel on hostelworld, and it was possibly the best decision of my trip. I hope to visit again!
