We had a reservation for 3 nights and we had a free pick up as arranged. Even though our reservation was for a double private we were given a 3 dorm. We didn't know that we had to pay in BGN, but of course we were given time to exchange. We totally recommend it, if you just need a place to sleep in the city center. Good value for money.


this is my 2nd stay at this hostel. it's run by mark, a great guy. he's helpful and has everything in the hostel organised. if you want to start up a new hostel, go and stay in this hostel first. you will learn the best way to do things. the showers and toilets are spotless here. electric heaters on full blast keep the rooms lovely and warm. the hostel has bars, clubs and shops all around it. i rate this hostel 100% thanks mark for a great stay - you are the man !


Don't stay here. The staff was so rude and puts up passive aggressive handwritten signs in ever corner of the hostel. Our stay was bad enough without being treated horribly by the man at reception. The bedding is scratchy


Excellent one-week stay. The hostel is clean, secure, perfectly located in the very center of the city, and with a friendly staff. Cheap for what it offers.


There's no kitchen, even though its listed on the facilities list. Also no computer. However, the private room was very cheap, so it's good value for money. There's only 1 employee, who works there 24/7; he's very friendly and helpful.
