Hostel is really far away from the centre, tried to walk but gave up after 30 min and got food. I guess you really need the bus if staying here. No air con. The also charge you to become members of Hosteling International which is something they don't advertise too well. Our 4 bed dorm was in an outhouse with a few other dorms. 1 plug in the room between 4 people. 1 toilet and shower for males in the entire outhouse which isn't enough really. Wouldn't recommend.
Pros: Location is unbeatable, really helpful staff, nice looking rooms, laundry service Cons: Cold showers, beds that keep breaking, small lockers, air conditioning that doesn't work, unisex bathrooms
Located about a 20 minute walk from the town centre, very close to the base of Cross Mountain however. Ideal spot if you have a car with you as there is plenty of parking. We stayed in a triple room with an en suite. Everything was spotlessly clean on arrival. The owners had very little English but we managed just about communicate. There was no power in the house the first night we stayed due to an electrical fault although I guess that's no one's fault. A good spot if you don't mind walking.
Stayed in a triple room for one night. Nice clean place. Pretty close to the old town, about a 25 min walk from the bus station. Friendly elderly female owner although she did not deduct the booking fee we paid to hostel world from the price of the accommodation so watch out for this. Arrived back around 3/4am and we were locked out, another guest had to come down to let us in despite us ringing the bell for nearly 15 minutes.
Brand new hostel that's just opened in the summer of 2014. I'm not a moaner, but it strikes me as the sort of place where the owner wanted to make it a 5 star hostel, but ran out of money finishing it off. Although we didn't use it, the kitchen looks fantastic. Beds are comfortable and plenty of plugs. Computer for everyone's use. The lovely girl at reception, Irma, booked our tour of the tunnels for us.The other staff were also very friendly.
Make sure you stay here if you're in Belgrade By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in, ticks all of the boxes. Perfect location, staff, beds, towels and facilities. We met with the owner Phil, an Aussie who travelled all over the world backpacking. He explained he has designed it around the small thinks that backpackers want, and that's what you get.
Had a reservation at the hostel but was overbooked when we arrived. The then sent us to what appears to be an overflow hostel. We checked this other place out before agreeing and it seemed ok. We were a little annoyed but the new hostel was actually right in the centre of Sofia. The owner is a nice guy who owns both, but he a little more business acumen would help to avoid things like this happening. The new hostel, although closer, was a little shady. After coming back from the pub crawl there
Great place to stay for some partying. Bar, ping pong, darts, and jenga made for drinking games in the common room. Staff turn on very effective air conditioning at night on request, just make sure it's not turned down too low (16 degrees was freezing!). Be sure to try out the escape rooms which are on the premises, costs less than €10 per person and well worth it. Staff are friendly and helpful, would go back if in Bucharest again
Great hostel, great kitchen, really easy to meet people.
Fantastic place to stay, once you find it. There are no signs outside the place marking it as a hostel so they place just looks like a regular apartment. Personal note left on the front door welcoming me and to say beds were ready as the receptionist was out. Great kitchen and friendly staff.
Staff were so friendly I thought they might be drunk when we first arrived (a Saturday night so maybe!) Really good atmosphere in the place, rooms are a bit small but would definitely recommend.
Bit away from the city centre, not the easiest place to strike up a conversation. Great pool tables none the less
