Upon returning to the crib (I couldn't stay away) the hostel was equally as inviting and comfortable as ever and kept me here for a week (I only had 4 nights booked). The staff are fantastic and the location is very close to the Old Town and main shopping area while maintaining a healthy feeling of being in a classic Bulgarian neighborhood. Highly recommend staying here if you are not sure.
I stayed in the crib overnight while passing through Plovdiv but fell in love so much that I returned again a few days later. Extremely hospitable and comfortable with staff to match - highly recommended.
Very bad experience. Stayed for 3 days and none of the existing 3 (working 2) toilets was cleaned even once during our stay. Confusion regarding my booking.

This hostel has a nice vibe, it's very clean and nicely decorated. It is in a perfect location just next to the old town! They also serve good breakfast. Nothing to complain, would go there again for sure!
Good location, close to the city centre and old town. I walked to the hostel from bus station. Staff is very friendly, try to make us the traditional breakfast eg. pancake, toast etc everyday morning. A good way to have and try local meal. good job Nicky! Will return to stay if coming back to Plovdiv.
Really enjoyed this hostel. Nice chilled atmosphere, great location near the pedestrian street, short walk to old town. Beds are comfortable, dorms spacious. Quiet location. Breakfast is great, we got all you could eat French toast and Nutella. Great kitchen. Bit noisy at night as all the rooms are off the communal area but it wasn't too bad. Only 1 shower, but there's not too many guests so it's okay.
The non-smiling staff served a breakfast of just pancakes and black Nescafe. When I asked for some milk in my coffee I was told to go to the shop to buy my own.
Had an awesome time at the crib the staff are extremely helpful and do a great job of keeping the place clean!
The rooms were comfortable and had great locker space. The bathrooms were average. Location was great - 5 minute walk to the centre. My only problem with this place was that the staff were not very helpful and always seemed to a bit 'out of it' ...
We had such a Nice stay at the Cribs! The location is absolutly perfect to visit the city and the people working There are very friendly, helpfull and so Nice! Beside that the rooms are modern and clean. Go There !!
Loved this hostel! Located right near town perfect for sightseeing. Hostel own Jovitca is great if you want any information on the town, Bulgaria or the Balkans in general. Would highly recommend!
The hostel was really really great, the staff incredibly welcoming and helpful and the atmosphere with other travellers just perfect. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, the beds also. Security is perfect as there's a very big locker for each person next to the beds. Breakfast is amazing :) We had a perfect stay, I recommend!
Nice beds, good showers (although not enough of them). The guy that was working there looked as if he was trying to have a layback atmosphere, however I've stayed at nearly 100 hostels now and in my opinion he was more lazy than anything.
This hostel has an excellent atmosphere and a very helpful staff that will recommend you the best spots in Plovdiv. Not far from the Old Town (5 minutes walking), the location is perfect. The one thing that I didn't really like though is the layout of the rooms. The dorms are right next to the common area and the staff won't tell people to be quiet even late at night. If you are looking for a place to party, the Crib is fantastic. If you need to have a good night of sleep, not so much.
We really liked our stay in The Crib. The staff was very friendly. We actually arrived one day later than planned, because our train was delayed, so we could not make it to Plovdiv in time. But when we called they were very nice and we did not have to pay for the night we weren't there. Besides, the location was perfect. The street is quiet, but very close to the city center. We would recommend this hostel to anyone who visits Plovdiv :)
Great balconies, clever use of space, air con in every room & free breakfast every morning!
Reallly enjoyed my time at this hostel. Rooms were nice, staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was great and location was fantastic.
Yotsko (the owner) was very friendly and helpful! We did arrive later than expected (in the middle of the night), but he didn't make any problem of it and even called us during our journey to check if we were alright. The beds in the hostel are very comfy, decent lockers and aircon in room. Common area is great, well equipped kitchen, nice and big terrace. Very cool atmosphere & vibes! The staff is great to hang out with, Yotsko even took us to a very cool open air party/rave close to Plovdiv.
