A great location, minutes to the railway station, supermarket and restaurants,. Thanks to the owners for providing budget accommodation in a very expensive location. There are three rooms upstairs that share a toilet, shower and small fridge. Owners are friendly and helpful
A great location with really helpful staff. The kitchen is an added bonus. The lockable compartments in the fridge and kitchen cupboards are a great as restaurant food here is SO expensive. But there is a Lidl supermarket around the corner where food is the same price as the rest of the world, so are the drinks. Beware... a standard twin means double bunks.
The location is brilliant for the price, you walk to attractions. Staff are great & the renovated part is lovely-the kitchen is fabulous. However, we didn't like long term residents taking all the space. Atmosphere was spoiled by many treating it as a boarding house, not a hostel. We were accommodated in the section that is not yet renovated and is two houses away from the new facilities. Website says they take credit card, but they only take debit card. Cost us $20 extra to withdraw from ATM.
This place was great. The position is brilliant and it's all clean and new. The fridge and microwave in the room made it easy to make a little breakfast, etc. If you have the opportunity, ask Curoso at the desk for his advice on seeing the city and the Metro system. There are plenty of bathrooms to share. BEWARE: A "standard twin" means double bunks. We are both nearing 60, but it was worth it as a trade-off for the extras.
We stayed in a private double room with shared bathroom - it had a good TV and a bar fridge and was on the same floor as the kitchen and common room. We were very impressed with the staff, cooking facilities and consideration shown by other guests. The 733 rapid bus to downtown is only two blocks away. A very cheap way to get to the greyhound bus station ($1.50).
A lovely,small guest house with very friendly and helpful staff. Food is good, with breakfast being outstanding. Comfortable room with working air-con, fan, hot water and wifi. Position is good - inside the old fort and easy walking to most of the town including the bus and railway stations and cricket ground. But is so easy to pick up a tuk-tuk there's no need to walk anywhere.
This hostel is in a wonderful location. Across the road from the lake and very near buses, supermarket and easy walk to the river, night market. Staff are very helpful and have good english. Bed was very hard and the tiles in the shower could use a good scrub. Overall, recommended.
This is a chance to stay in a traditional courtyard building, where things are kept reasonably true to the period. Of, course the modern plumbing and heating are an advantage. Great location and reasonably priced restaurant with a good range of foods. Staff are helpful, especially Bob, the boss, who purchased rail tickets and arranged cars for us. Thanks, Bob.

The best hostel I've ever seen! Location was excellent, within the old city walls & easy walk to transport. The staff were cheerful and extremely helpful. Food and bar were wonderful - nothing was too much trouble. The double bed, private ensuite was spotlessly clean, newly renovated and excellent value for money. The tour to the Terracotta Warriors was also good value.
We recommend this hostel to all readers. The staff were brilliant and helped us more than was required ( Thanks Emily). The bed was amazingly comfortable, the double room with private ensuite was spacious and the restaurant provided a fantastic breakfast included in tne price as well as very good food at reasonable prices throughout the rest of the day. The trip they offered to the Wall was excellent.
Koala was comfortable, with good heating, hot water and wifi worked in our room. Although food was theoretically available, they offered only one dish for dinner and it didn't change. Although close to the train station, it was a little too far from town and good restaurants. Staff were helpful when asked, but not friendly on other occasions.
Great location and enormously helpful staff. Room was very clean and in a pedestrian area which made it quiet. Easy walking to most attractions. Highly recommended
Great hostel with good location close to the Bund. Staff were wery helpful and had excellent English. Hot water and room air conditioner both worked efficiently.
This is a budget alternative close to metro stop that takes you to the city. Room is clean but no air con or fan. Can be a little difficult to find, but there are shops and supermarkets close by. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Loved our stay here. Staff are great, location is good. Breakfasta and dinner included means you can "stay in" occasionallt - a nice change if you are travelling for long periods. We are a 50+ couple and were made feel as welcome as the young folk who dominate the travel scene in Bulgaria.
