A personalized sign welcomed me and the decor is top notch. I love this hostel. Nice breakfast, cool travelers and staff in a wonderful city. I didn't get a locker but there were more probably.

Our stay at the Old Plovdiv Hostel was excellent. The rooms and building are beautiful and the location is ideal for getting around and seeing the sights of this lovely city. The staff were incredible, helping us organise transport and recommending places to go. They really went out of their way to help us. This was easily one of the best hostels I've stayed at.

A great place with awesome staff. The most charming hostel I've stayed in. Really has the old feeling that you know the building has. Everything was awesome about it! I did my laundry and my clothes have never smelled so clean!

I have spent 7 years travelling since retiring and stayed in at least 50 hostels. Hostel Plovdiv is the nicest small town hostel that I have stayed in so far. The facilities in the historic building are immaculate and the staff are helpful and friendly. The free breakfast is very good and there is a lovely garden to relax I as well as a comfortable common room.

Location is great however, taxis do not like to come to the old town so it was an absolute mission to carry our suitcases up the steps, then the rocky path and hill. Too hard with suitcases. The hostel itself is amazing, lovely outdoor area to sit around, rooms clean, bathroom fine. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Old Plovdiv Hostel. Everyone was really friendly, and we had no problems getting information about the city. The rooms and bathrooms were all spacious and clean, and the free breakfast had something for everyone.

Excellent hostel - my dorm had real beds (not bunks) and a fresh towel, rooms are spacious and breakfast and wifi are both excellent. Definitely one of the better hostels I've stayed at around the world! There are a couple of cats wandering around, but they're well behaved.

Gorgeous hostel, right in the centre of the old town. Definitely one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at, in terms of hostel layout, building, cleanliness and value for money. Room was very nice, with massive lockers. Had a nice garden in the back, which was nice in the sunshine. Would definitely recommend/go back again if I'm ever in the area!

This is a hotel/ hostel housed in traditional house on Old Town. Informative staff at reception. i had a spacious, comfortable room decorated in traditional style. No kitchen , just a microwave and free hot drinks. Good breakfast in the morning. Toilet sink I saw was too small for washing( other than hands) and larger shower/ washing area in basement could have done with some heat, but no other problems.Characterful common room. Heating in my room was available.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with our future guests, Peter ! We have 4 bathrooms for 9 rooms, so the sinks in 3 of them are as big as a basin :) We also provide wash basins to our guests. Our kitchen has everything a traveller needs, but you did not asked where it is :) Best regards Hristo-the owner:)

Everything here was really great. The staff was super helpful and kind. The owner of the hostel came down to greet us at breakfast to see if he could offer his opinions or help. Really cool experience. Best hostel I've been at.

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.
