The hostel was excellent and the guy on reception was great - knowledgeable, helpful, and a great sense of humour. I would definitely stay there again as the place is very convenient for may places in Sofia.


The Hostel is very nice, clean and the staff is just excellent! Sasha is The Best!!!

the people are very nice there. i like it! :)


Good place and really kind staff, friendly and funny! reccomended! The location is good!


Excellent location. It is at the heart of the city almost every touristic places are within walking distance, although i had some trouble finding the place at first. Good wifi. The staffs were nice. But I have to say, the building itself and the facilities seemed old. It was really cold during night. Ita really dark as well. In overall for the cheap price it was worth it :)

My stay at Nightingale was really great! The position is perfect for anything I wanted to do and see. Rght outside the hostel is a good book market, selling all types of classics (even in English) Sasha the hostel worker was very friendly and accommodating and a pleasure to meet! She helped me with anything I needed. No complaints at all, just a very friendly and comfortable place to stay. Definitely reccomend if you want an enjoyable stay in Sofia!


The staff are very nice. The hostel itself needs some money spent on it. Bathrooms are put together with hope and dreams, but water is hot, so that's good. Beds are clean. Generally the whole ace needs scrubbing thoroughly from one end to another. The hostel and rooms are nice and warm


Sitting in the centre of Sofia but in a quite hidden place in an alley, just need to look around to find it. There were only 1 another guest staying when i was there but it was fine for me so i could sleep well. Staff is a lovely fun lady with difficulties in walking but she tries her best so it should be appreciated and regarded always. Recommened!


Very friendly staff. Close to everything in the city. I'd definitely stay again!!
