Great place to stay in the downtown. Great welcoming introduction to the town, a nice free breakfast that runs to a good time in the morning. The place to stay in Varna.

The guy who runs the hostel is friendly and helpful. The lady, not much, and she's always in a bad mood. I got what I paid for, I didn't have further expectations.

Everything was perfect except for the bathroom. The toilet and the showers are together in the same room. So when you go to the toilet it's usually all wet.. And a few of them had a little smell. But except for that, everything was awesome from the location, the facilities and the very helpfull staff!

Had a great time during my stay at Yo-Ho-Hostel! Easy to find and very well located in Varna, just 10-15 minutes away from the beach and bars area. All the staff were very friendly and helpful!! The hostel has a good vibe and a cool decoration.. very pleasant to stay there meeting people, drinking, etc. With the exception of the bathrooms, the facilities are very nice! Guys, you have a great hostel, just spend a little bit of money to improve the quality of the bathrooms and you will be the top!

Great hostel with fantastic atmosphere created not only by cheery staff but also by other guests that come from all around the world and are indeed a super interesting individuals - sometimes even music groups. The location is just in the heart of Varna's old town which is close to the most worth seeing places, restaurants, and the seaside itself. The hostel isn't by definition a 5-star hotel but in here you may chillout with a cold Zagorka in the backyard's pirate-styled garden. Yo Ho Ho!

Adequte place for a stop over in Varna, close to the bus drop off easy to get to the bus station. Not pristine but okay.

Little hard to find from the train station, but once you've got it it's easy. It's a great location & the staff are great and engaging! Breakfast was such a great bonus being a budget backpacker, and the beach is a 10 minute walk. Great. Showers are tiny and not the greatest, but what can you do! Would recommend to other travelers.

Thank you, Apollonia ! We are situated on the Central square in Varna, just behind Tourist Information center. In Varna is it very hard to find any signs with a street names - it is better to ask young people where Yo-Ho-Hostel is situated - everybody know us ;)

Yo Ho Hostel is a very special place in Varna, Top draw if you are the social- and adventure minded type. It's central, good value, plus, tasty teas. Most of the staff are really kind and helpful! Stefan is an enthusiastic Sea of Bulgarian knowledge, and will make sure you get all the information you need to have an exciting experience. Good daytrips too. A must for musicians! With a guitar and ukulele in the common area, and info on all Varna concerts. You might end up staying a bit longer.

It was a nice enough place with hip staff. The only problem was the shower/toilet situation. It was rather strange and felt a bit unhygienic, as the showers were actually in the toilets.

Hi Aydin, Thank you for your review ! The biggest problem in our toilets are bad educated guests, who left mess behind themselves . It is very easy to use the mop and to let our combo WC/ baths in the condition how you find it ! That's why we put sighs everywhere - " Please, use the mop, for next guests comfort " ! We wish you save and nice trip - you are welcome back ;)

Value for money was incredible at Yo Ho's, the rooms are very affordable and the facilities and staff are great. Free breakfast was excellent, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could need, and the hostel is only a 5 minute walk from the centre of town! Highly recommended!

It's in a good location, pretty close to the main pedestrian street. They also offer great deals for things to do in/around Varna .The breakfast was a pretty good selection too.
