Best hostel I've ever been! Regular beds instead of bunks, a huge bathroom, excellent breakfast and a very friendly and helpful staff.
This is probably the coolest hostel I've ever stayed in. Cool house and nice bedrooms and the staff is really friendly. Hristo, the owner, emailed me with detailed instructions on how to get to the hostel. They are really nice and you feel as if you were in a BandB instead of a hostel.
This is by far my favorite hostel in the world. It is the prettiest, most well decorate and well-maintained. The showers are huge, spotless, and with plenty of hot water. The internet was fast, the drinks were cheap, and they sit you down with a free drink while you fill out your paperwork in their beautiful garden. I booked an 8-bed dorm and ended up in a very lovely pink 3-bed dorm. Stay here if you're looking for a social atmosphere where you can also enjoy solitude and peace.
One of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in: antique furniture and fantastic beds (no bunks!) A mix of ages and traveller types at the hostel with a lovely, friendly vibe.
Super welcoming staff, charming building, fittings and location. Great breakfast, fairly good WiFi, and nice outside area.
Brilliant location, excellent hostel, staff were very knowledgeable and informative. Very highly recommended.
We had a great visit at Hostel Old Plovdiv. The space itself is great and the staff is super friendly, helpful and fun to go out with after work. We had a great time in Plovdiv!
Rooms next to the garden can be a bit noisy at night
The hostel location is really good. It is not far away fromthe city centre neither from the ancient theater. It is not located in a busy or loud neighbourhood. It has a wonderful, old-fashioned furniture and it takes you back to the nineteenth century atmosphere. The whole atmosphere with the staff and the chef himself is really friendly and kind. The breakfast is wonderfully delicious and fresh coffee is always available within the beautiful garden behind the hostel. The price is really good.

Great People working at the hostel, Everyone was fantastic. Location and building are great. A bit of a problem in the darkness of the room, as the curtains don't work as blackouts (at least in my room) and there's quite a bit of light inside. there's only one bathroom in the top floor where most of the rooms are, but there are two more downstairs. Although it made necessary to change floors, they were never full.
Amazing hostel and the staff were incredibly helpful.
Nice quiet hostel in the Old Town. They have a good breakfast and a lovely outdoor area but there wasn't much atmosphere when I was there. Sleeping in beds instead of bunks was a nice change.
maybe one of the best hostels I ever been. But for sure the worst staff I ever knew, and because of that and because I think we are talking about and hostel than can and must persuit the excellence I must be tough with my evaluation. They have this laydy red hair and glasses (sorry but its the only way to identifie her), that has a terrible sense of responsability and service. You ask anything and she in a correct manner make you fell stupid. A lot of bad experienses with Her but no space h
Really great hostel with perfect location next to the fortress! Very welcoming staff with open atmosphere for socialising! Highly recommended! Especially for lone travellers
it is a really nice place. more of a hotel than a youth hostel. the location is nice and the beds are very comfortable and overall it is very clean
Not laundry service is the only thing that i would mentioned. Nowadays is the best hostel i ever visited. Fantastic.
Nice place but extremely noisy with the road atenant to the dormitory and the old wood floor... moreover, they put the lights on at any time during the night in the dormitories, without any consideration for the people who sleep there, and wake up everybody in the very middle of the night with no excuses. Quite rude... Almost no sleep during my stay.
Great stay at this hostel. Very welcoming and good atmosphere. Would stay again.
We had a great time at the Old Plovdiv. The welcome is extremely warm and the house is an amazing old house, renovated with great care. The little backyard is perfect for the good breakfast in the morning and beers at night. Very quiet and peaceful. If you meet the owner, he will readily tell you everything you want to know, be it about the house or travelling to Turkey. The prices are really good value. I would absolutely stay there again.
Everyone is so attentive and nice, even before arrival. The property is beautiful and the location ideal. Would definitely recommend it.
