Nice place to stay,near beach and restaurants,helpful and nice staff.


I choose this hostel after the information that another - Del Mar under the reconstructions, so you have to take off information about this hostel from your web-site and do not take unrefundable money... Yo-Ho was very good hostel...


I loved Yo-Ho-Hostel and the people who run it. Stefan is very kind and makes a lot of effort to ensure guests have an experience that is above and beyond just having a place to stay. The rooms have lockers for your bags, and even though the building itself is a little small (this is common across Bulgaria from what I've seen), the hostel is really clean and well-kept. I have sinus, and it's a testament to how clean they are when I have no issues with the sheets etc. Very cosy and decent hostel.


All good. Location, security with big lockers in the room. Plenty of showers. Good atmosphere and the staff had lots of advice and information.


Loads of fun, great music and party's in court yard but don't disturb if you want sleep. Local tours fun staff over the top. Storing bike there while going to big city to take care of business. Great town not as tourest as sofia. Great local eats near by at great prices and breakfast at hostel..! Booked one stayed 2 going back for few more..!


Stopped in on our way to Romania, the vibe was good, lots of characters at the hostel when we were there which was just after the touristy season had ended. Close to the beach and centre. Varna is beautiful.


Very friendly and helpful staff! Went to varna at the end of season so the hostel was quite and the town wasn't busy. The hostel is good value but rooms are very small, I reckon it would be better during summer! Good location


Really good hostel!!!


Quite good hostel, but some things spoil the impression: rather dark rooms (without sconces which would be very useful in case one have the lower place on a bunk bed), extremely inconvenient showers (combined with toilets), lockers in toilets need to be fixed...


The backpacker's atmosphere was quite nice and the hostel is near to the beach, a few bars and restaurants, the main shopping street and a supermarket. It wasn't that clean though and a little noisy if your room was close to the common room.


A very nice hostel in a great location. Staff were very nice and helpful and this hostel is a great base from which to visit a fantastic city. Definitely recommended.


In the centre of Varna, 10mins to train station on foot and 15 to the beach - if that really! Had a great stay.


A great hostel! Staff was very kind and helpful and the hostel was clean and nice. Wi-Fi worked well and the location was perfect. There was also a terrace, bar and table football downstairs, which was nice. Showers were a bit uncomfortable because there was only a little toilet with shower and we couldn't take our stuff inside if we didn't want it to get totally wet. Anyway, we would recommend!


This hostel is centrally located and easily reached by air, bus or train. The beach is about a ten minute walk away from the hostel.


Showers were an absolute disaster. I'm normally not bothered by dirty showers but these ones were exceptionally bad and cramped. Staff were patronising and rude upon checking out and talked to me as if I was a child which was really annoying.

Hi Matthew, Is it very easy to write about cleanless, but is it very difficult to clean after yourself ! Beckpeckers reality ! All the best !


This hostel was ok. The staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms didn't have AC and also we didn't have a fan for the first couple of nights so it got quite hot. Breakfast was good. It's a short walk to the main street and 10 minutes to the beach. Good stay.


really good hostel. Staff is very nice and helpful and can also organize day-trips. There is a very good communal area to socialize with fellow travellers. Plus a garden, even though it seems nobody is going there. At least not when I was there. Overall, I would certainly recommend this hostel.


Unique hostel - it's the place to stay when in this part of the world! Staff is amazing and there's good vibe about everything there. The dog is very cool - hi Ziggy! Hope to come back one day. All the best!
