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.
Amazing hostel. Beautiful house, staff were great, breakfast was great, rooms were cool and clean. Just perfect. Arrived late around 3am and we're still greeted warmly at reception. Highly recommend.
Unique location close to view of the city, sunset and Roman theatre.
This was the BEST hostel I've stayed at in my entire life. :) it had personality, but was cheap and the service was fantastic. Clean and a good breakfast included. I hope I will be able to come back to Plovdiv, just to stay at this hostel again.

This was an amazing place. The staff was amazing and extremely friendly. The only dislike I had during my stay was the age gap in guest that stayed. They were either younger or older and the older crowd complained on us at 10pm while having a few beers in the garden. I will be coming back to Plovdiv and staying at Old Plovdiv
Very good place to stay. Not sure about other hostels but this one is a must to stay :) Helpful staff. Clean and tidy rooms and shared facilities. Breakfast is good, and most important for me - coffee from fresh grained beans. Tip: when you are on you way for awhile let the hostel wash your clothes. Soft, perfect folded and smells awesome when they return it the next day :)
Very nice staff and wonderful facility! Nice lounge area and even an outdoor patio. Breakfast was fantastic! The staff went above and beyond in helping me while staying at the hostel. Great location in old town. Easy taxi ride from major transport hubs. Would stay at again.
Very very good hotel, very comfortable, amazing and very thoughtful staff. I had my birthday on our first night and they had a surprise hen we came back! It was an amazing stay! I strongly recommend it.
Good hostel, great staff, lot of fun
Great staff - I was welcomed with my name on a personalize sign and home made lemonade. My room had real beds not dorm beds. The only hostel I stayed at with a Roman wall in the dinning room. Good location in the old town and the outside area at the back is nice.
Awesome location. Safe area after dark. Huge lockers, awesome breakfast, great decor. The downside was that there weren't enough bathrooms, especially for busy mornings. I rated this hostel low on security because, when I asked for the bus sechedule, they kindly promted it for me. When I looked at the paper later, I saw that on the back of the paper was a printout of someone else's personal info. Recycling is good, but be safe with personal info! Hopefully this was a one-time mistake.
Staying at Hostel Plovdiv was really great. The staff were friendly, the breakfast was good, and the back garden was lovely. The beds in the room were comfortable and the showers were hot. The location was also perfect, not far from the pedestrian street and Kapana (the Trap).
Very nice staff, amazing old building with a very nice and secluded backyard space to rest, close to the center. Only thing you have to keep in mind - because it is an old house floorboards and doors are quite creaky - you might wake up quite early with other guests getting ready for the day and hustling and bustling about. Still, would stay there again. It's just sooo nice.
One of the nicest hostels I have stayed in during five months of travel. The staff is great. The hostel is charming. The location in the Old City is great.
I loved my time here and would definitely recommend the hostel to anyone. The staff is fantastic, and it didn't even feel like a hostel. For those of you who hate top bunks, this hostel is definitely for you! I stayed in a 'real' (not bunk) bed for the first time in weeks and it was fabulous.
Absolutely amazing hostel! Probably the best I've ever been to. Beautiful building with a great atmosphere, all dark wood and big elegant rooms. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, giving advise and going out of their way to help. The dorms have grey beds and lockers. They don't have a kitchen you can use, but they give you free breakfast/tea/coffee. They welcome you with a sign and when I got there it was really early so they let me sleep on the couch and shower before checking in.
The staff were very helpful and asked me if I wanted a vegetarian breakfast which was nice. There is a pleasant terrace to socialise with other travellers if you want to and ,when you first arrive, the staff display "welcome" signs in the language of the person arriving which is a lovely touch. The rooms have nice beds and are tastefully decorated with many period items. All in all, a great experience but you might want to bring some earplugs as some travellers enjoy socialising into the night.
Awesome stay - the owner and his Team are incredibly Kind and hospitable. There remained no more desires openly:)
Staff very helpful and the hostel is clean and had a great atmosphere. great location in the old town
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.
