Very homely hostel. Comfortable beds in spacious rooms, and a great breakfast. Only a short walk from the centre of the city.
I think we may have been the only ones here when we stayed and it was really quiet. The private room was good, breakfast was ok (eggs on toast). Close to the old town. Friendly staff.
Very new hostel in walking distance to train station and old town. Rooms were excellent and the bed comfy. I wish I had been able to stay longer!
100% across the board. Friendly and helpful staff plus an ideal location and nice new facilities make this place great.
The owner is great and very helpful. The location is good. The only thing when we were there the sauna was not working and the jacuzzi did not seem appealing. But overall really great deal!
Very close to the old town and hustle and bustle of the pedestrianized area of the city. Pleasant place for relaxing, sightseeing, and a breathtaking view of the city and the Rhodope mountain range. During the season, probably it's more vibrant. Nice staff. A kind gesture to provide a lift to the airport. Overall great value for money.
this is a friendly hostel set up in a flat. Lara,The young lady running is an absolute gem. If she could bottle her laughter, she would make a fortune, as she produces a lot! However, I have to say, that if you have back problems, you might want to test the mattress first.. They are new, but I found them lacking in support.
The hostel is clean and charming and it is easy to find it from the main station. They provide us with a lot of tourist information very useful. Thank you very much.

I've traveled to many hostels on my trip in the Balkan region. This was my favorite. The vibe in this hostel was the best i've encountered. Staff (Laura) is the best! I realy felt at home here. Thnx!
Great film nights, good protien breakfast, coffee & good black tea 'on tap.
I stayed at the new crib - but will be writing on this one, cos I booked though the penthouse. I love love loved, this hostel my best hostel experience ever (seriously!) Laura is extremely kind, the breakfast is amazing, the layout of the hostel is perfect for meeting people and Plovdiv is a really cool city. Thank you so much! xxx
I loved it! the staff is really friendly and helpful. I stayed in the 8 bed dorm which was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Upstairs there is a bathroom with jacuzzi and sauna, fantastic for some girly pampering. And breakfast was so tasteful, that just made my day.
The balcony and the roof terrace had amazing views over plovdiv. The host was really friendly and helpful and made us really enjoy our stay. A wonderful place to stay!
The hostel is very centrally located, just in walking distance to all the sights. The staff is very nice and welcoming and will even put up an entertaining program for you if necesary :-) The hostel is quite small. I did not have the chance of taking breakfast but it sounded great.
I stayed at the new hostel called The Crib. It is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The owner is amazing and so helpful. She made a fantastic breakfast every morning. The hostel is clean and comfortable. I felt like I was staying in someones home. I would highly recommend this place to everyone! It is located really close to the old town... maybe a 2 minute walk.
I felt like at home. The manager (Laura) was very nice and also very interesting to talk to. The atmosphere was great, you can definitely relax there but also you can meet new people and enjoy a nice talk. Just what I love about hostels.Oh! And the breakfast was great too! Everything was very clean, it is close the old town and the shopping street. They also organize days trips to other places and they can take you out at night. I would definitely repeat there!
Awesome staff, very good location, great atmosphere. I really enjoyed my stay there!
BEST HOSTEL !!! Staff is very freindly. Furnishings is new and very nice. Close to the center. Social :) IT FEELS LIKE HOMECOMING ;)
Pick the 8 bed dorm! Good location right next to old town, good wifi, good kitchen to use, was given cooked breakfast every morning, staff take the guests out at night to experience Plovdiv's nightlife!
I stayed at the new 8 person dorm in the old town, originally booking two nights but staying for six. The place is very relaxed, yet sociable –– it was easy to make new friends by wandering into the common room at any given time. The owners are incredibly nice and very generous with their time, giving advice on everything from Balkan travel to thrift shops in Plovdiv. I've never felt as welcome at a hostel as I did here, and it seemed like none of the guests wanted to leave. Great, great place.
