Breakfast was great, and the girl who owns the hostel is awesome. Everything is brand new and works well, including the showers. The bin in the toilets could be changed more frequently. I would stay here again!
The Crib feels more like a home than a hostel. I guess that's why my original 2 nights extended to 2 weeks. Staff is great and location is good. Highly recommended!
A wonderful hostel with great hospitality! The most comfy hostel bed I have slept in and so nice to wake up to a cooked breakfast :) WIsh I could have stayed longer.
Laura and the other staff make the hostel the warm home away from home that it is.
Cooked breakfast, the best i have in my 3-month travel in balgans. Staff Laura is great, always chasing perfect service for guests.
PAULA (the manager) loves her work, she does it with devotion. She's care about their guests from first time they enter the hostel until the moment they leave it. She speaks several languages, it is a pleasure to talk with her. The Crib is the best hostel I have stayed ever. Designed to put you at ease and make you feel at home. The common area is very relaxing and enjoyable and allows you to easily communicate with other travelers. The kitchen is very functional and practical for cooking.
Great hostel and was impressed by the knowledge of the staff. They helped me sort out the rest of my trip and pointed me to some places I didn't know even existed. Nothing negative to say about the hostel - beds, showers, etc. were all top notch. I will be coming back to spend more time in Plovdiv as it seems pretty interesting.
Very nice hostel, the staff is amazingly nice ! They'll go with to some karaoké clubs or go to a beer. Very relaxed mood inside the hostel, with a fully equiped kitchen and clean bathrooms (don't forget to take some flip flops, though).
I like this hostel for its atmosphere. You feel really comfortable being there. The staff is doing their best for you to enjoy every minute of your stay, giving a lot of useful information about Plovdiv and other places in Bulgaria. I doubt you can find a better place. Highly recommended.
My second time in Plovdiv, and this time it was even better. The new location is perfect; less than five minutes to the main pedestrian street. It's super social, with a lot of travelers deciding to spend several days in the city. Laura goes out of her way to make everyone feel at home, there's always people around who are up for going out or relaxing, and the rooftop/balcony are great too. A great place in a great city.
This brand new hostel is runned by the same people like "The Penthouse Crib" (which is a 15min walk away). They are really interessted in that their guests are having a great time (by organizing day trips, taking you to the bars) and you'll definitely meet nice people. Especially the living room is perfect for getting together and the seats so comfortable =) The roof top is just awesome, the location couldn't be any better and every thing is new and totally clean. And there even is a small gym!
I had such a great time there! Especially the atmosphere was fantastic. When I came back from my day trips it really felt like coming home. The main reason for it: the staff! These people help u out with everything. Additionally the facilities are quite good, its clean and the roof terrace is a big plus. Excellent! 100%. One of the best places I have stayed in eastern Europe.

At the beginning I found the Price just fair, because of the treatment and the cleanliness of the place, but after Chatting with Laura (the manager), you realize you are getting more than the money could pay. They are very responsible and warm, always giving you tips and you can notice it is a passion for the management to make you feel “at home”. It is well placed and they also take you to the bars nearby in order you to have a great time. I highly recommend this hostel if you visit Plovdiv.
