This hostel is by far the best hostel!!! Everything exceeds excellence. First of all,I arrived at 145 in the morning and wow to my surprised I have my flag hanging at the balcony with a welcome note saying "welcome Jesse"- the warmest welcome Indeed and completely unexpected wow., The rooms are grand and very spacious. I love the bed, it's pure white linen no stains, soft, comfortable and aromatic smells..friendly staff everything is excellent.strongly recommend and will definitely to come back
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!
Very friendly staff, warm welcoming. Beautiful, clean and renovated hostel in a historic house, very well located

"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.
The most beautiful hostel located in the old town of Plovdiv. The staff could not be more friendly or helpful. One of the best breakfasts too!
Amazing hostel. They had a personalise welcome sign, it was amazing :). Located in the middle of old town it is an amazing hostel to just look at. Will definitely return. The breakfast is adorable
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.
It was a really nice hotel. If you want to visit Plovdiv be sure this hostel is one of the best!

Fantastic place to stay. Could not recommend it more highly. The staff are incredibly nice and helpful. Great, great location.
Great place, great staff!
This hostel is incredibly good. It is your chance to stay in an old historical building, perfectly clean and restored but still keeping its antique grandeur. Hrsto and his team are exceedingly welcoming and the comforts they provide you with would make you stay indoors whatever the weather´s like.
Very beautiful house. Staff was nice. A bit noisy in room 6 when people are drinking in the garden until 3 AM.
Greeted with a welcome message, a handshake from the owner, and practical information provided over a home-made iced tea, this beautifully restored guesthouse is one of the best "hostels" I have stayed in. Cannot fault any aspect of the stay: friendly and helpful staff, lovely surrounds, smooth wi-fi, great breakfast and excellent location made for a perfect stay. Thank you to all the staff!
Excellent hostel! Right in the heart of the old town, very easily reached with public transport. The hostility is on high level and the stuff is very helpful and kind. The bathrooms are clean, the rooms smell nice and clean, free and fast wi-fi and great breakfast. The garden is probably the best place! Thanks to Hristo and his stuff for a warm welcome, recommendations and all the info they gave us. I sure hope we'll met again! Sending love for the cat and her little kittens in the garden! ;)
Really great place in a great location. It's pretty high end for a hostel, with a nice courtyard and very clean facilities. I had the pleasure of having lunch with the owner of the hostel, he gave me great insight on Plovdiv and Bulgaria in general. Highly recommended.
