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.

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!

The shower space is tight next to the toilet but once you get over that, it's a good hostel in a good location to the square.

Yo ho hostel always makes you feel welcome! I planned to stay one night and was there 2 weeks! One of the only places i've been where the staff treat you as a friend rather than a customer. Plan on hearing tons of good music and seeing happy smiling faces everyday.

Great hostel! :) They offer free pickup service from bus/train station (they came within 2 minutes when we phoned them), perfect location (directly in the centre and a 10-minute walk to the beach), nice and helpful staff, breakfast included (which is good, they even have chocolate cream :) ), and they even provide towels for free, we didn't even have to ask for them :) nice atmosphere and decoration, you feel like on a ship ;) there's also cool art on the walls + a cosy common room :)

Great staff and common area. The showers are in bad condition. Combined shower and toilet close to each other makes it no good. Small rooms. Quit good location 10/15 minutes away from the beach.

Great spot for Varna. I am traveling to relax and this hostel was great for it. No crazy partying or loud scenes. You hear some seagulls but that is because it is near the beach. Recommended!

Couldn't get in to the hostel when I arrived early so it's not a 24 reception. Showers and toilets very small. Everything else was really good

Hi Will, thank you for your review ! Yo-Ho-Hostel has a 24 hours reception since 8 years ! Front door is always locked for our security. New guests have to ring the door bell to enter inside. There is a phone number written on front door to connect with reception. Best regards and safety trip , Yo-Ho-Hostel

The guy from the staff that received us was very polite and gave us a nice idea of what to do in Varna. The bedroom was OK, it just got a little cold and had no duvets. Toilets had showers oddly placed and could use better cleaning. Atmosphere of the hostel was very nice, since it had a lounge for people to talk. It also is very well positioned within the city.

The staff are friendly and helpful. It's about a 15 min walk to the beach. The free breakfast is great and the kitchen has every spice imaginable and all amenities.
