Property Description

Join us in the unique experience that we create, now for 15 years, combining art and travel under one roof!
If you love to meet up with locals and friends in our garden, if you like listening to concerts or readings, or come to see exhibitions in our coffee gallery, or if you simply want to be part of the Art-Hostel, one of the emblematic venues of Sofia sub-culture for the last 15 years, we invite you to share this experience with us! We are the first and oldest hostel which was opened in Bulgaria.

What The Guardian says for us: 'Explore and enjoy a Parisian mentality and a Russian thirst for liquor in the centre of Sofia'.

Accommodation:
We're offering spacious four-bed dorms with bunk beds, as well as private double, single, triple, quadruple rooms. All rooms have, original artist's decorations, with shared, or private bathrooms and toilets as well as common, fully-equipped kitchen, garden and bar-gallery. Bathrooms are with 24/7 hot showers and and separated from toilets.
Each bed comes with free linen and towel. All rooms are non-smoking. Breakfast is included in all prices.
Enjoy a quiet location, right in the pulsing heart of the city!

This summer we are opening our brand new, more luxurious location- a fully renovated house from 1930s. very close to the Art-Hostel. Expect your chance to be upgraded to a private room, normally with private bath at Garivbaldi Guest House!

Free stuff and more:
We offer tons of free stuff! Free breakfast, welcome drink, free unlimited, high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi, free city maps, free city tours, free tourist info about Sofia and other places in Bulgaria and free luggage storage! There's no curfew or lockout so you can come and go as you please, plus laundry services and early check-in (when possible) and late check-out times (ask the receptionist about it).

Location:
We're really centrally located in an old, historical three-floor building, only a stone's throw from major tourist and cultural points of interest in Sofia. We're also close to bars, clubs, restaurants, food shops and supermarkets. Also we have excellent public transport connections to all parts of the city.
Everything you need is right here and your great stay in Sofia can start.

Our garden and bar:
During the day spend some time in our beautiful, green garden, drinking first morning tea or coffee or relax after long 'touristic' day and make some new friends.
When night comes we usually spend all our money in our basement-type bar, meeting and mingling with protagonists of the vibrant Sofia underground art scene, playing a game of table football and enjoying great live performances almost every night. And you're welcome to join us!

    Fabulous

    Arts Hostel needs to be seen to be believed; it's not everyone's cup of tea but by and large the place is good value for money, even if at times the service is a bit hit and miss. The venue and many places in Sophia, sport graffiti on their walls - nothing obscene but wall painting anyway; if you object to a giant tree painted on your bedroom wall and ceiling, it's not for you. I found the place interesting and different, if somewhat bizarre in its furnishings and decoration. But it is clean.

    Our stay was OK, it just seemed that some members of the staff were too tired to get their work done and let us wait several times. More also the breakfast was supposed to start at 8:30 am and even still at 9:30 am no one really seemed to take care of it. Although they have a lovely garden, I would not come back cause of the missing service.
