There was never TP, the showers are gross. Breakfast from 8-11 but the people cook it and don't get up until 1030.. Common area had the hardest things on the floor to sit on. There was always a group of random sketchy people that I don't know if they worked there or were just friends with people who worked there. I probably wouldn't stay there again.

Shower situation is a little weird, with the showers spraying onto the bathroom floor, but other than that I couldn't have asked for anything better. Awesome staff, comfortable beds, and perfect location.

Not sure if this place even has a licence to operate cause it seems more like a grubby bachelors pad than a hostel. For example, the cramped toilet/shower room was poorly maintained and there was hair all over the floor and never any toilet paper. Furthermore, the electrical plugs in my room were not secured correctly. If you're a grubby hippy, you'll love this place. If you're not, then it's probably best if you look elsewhere.

The hostel is located in the hearthland of Pld next to the mosque and the main street. The staff is great and it has nice ambient. Plovdiv is the best place in BG.

Loved my stay at the crib! It felt like being in a share house in a really cool way and the staff were totally awesome! Super chilled out vibe and awesome breakfast cooked each morning by the staff. Would definitely stay there again!

The Crib really made me feel like home! Starting with the tidy and cosy place itself, through the lovely people staying there, the delicious breakfast, to the amazing staff that made my stay go beyond anything that I've expected. Looking forward to come back. Keep it up guys!

Location was a bit hard to find but otherwise a decent relaxed-vibe hostel. Nice clean comfortable beds but the place was a bit small as in it just didn't have many beds or rooms.

I've loved staying here.. 3 additional nights even. It's not traditional hostel, it's better and if you like, it can feel like you are "at home" not in a hostel. Staff are friendly, I've made some friends for life here. They are helpful if you need info (bus, taxi, etc). It is close to city center. Lockers, nice rooms, kitchen facilities, living room, etc... just like a home. 2 baths for 20+ during max capacity, but was never an issue more than a few minutes wait... and they are expanding.

A cosy hostel with friendly atmosphere. Very comfy beds and spacious lockers. Having towels and breakfast included are very handy. Really close to old town and all tourist attractions in Plovdiv. I enjoyed my stay here and can certainly recommend it. Alot of stairs although it didn't bother me very much. Having a supermarket on the ground floor is very convenient.

Cosy apartment style hostel located two minutes from the centre of Plovdiv. Comfortable and clean dorms. The Inventive and original breakfasts were a welcome break from the usual fare served in hostels. Dinners available sometimes on request. Reception was available most of the time but sometimes was not there. Bathroom floor was wet a lot too. Stay in the Crib for a fun and relaxing time in Plovdiv.
