    This hostel is CLEAN, which is a feat considering its great location close to the beach. The staff works hard to keep everything spotless. Yes, the showers are small, but I still had no trouble washing my long hair. There is a washing machine! The mattresses are comfortable and the pods have outlets and lights inside. The lockers are large enough for luggage. The air conditioning works well. With everything to do in Varna, it’s a blessing to have a hostel with privacy and a restful atmosphere.

    Excellent location. The new receptionist is super sweet and works really hard. Beds are very comfortable and private, pod-style with curtains. Not much atmosphere - very small common room and rarely anybody there, and people mostly keep to themselves. Not enough showers/toilets but you can make it work, just be prepared to wait a little.

    I enjoyed my stay in Gagarin House! Other hostel guests were a great company and the location is really really good. The "capsule" beds offered privacy and that was very nice. But the best thing was absolutely the staff! They are reliable, friendly and very flexible and I appreciate that a lot! Thank you for being so understanding and helping me.

    Great location for the beach however no atmosphere at the hostel. If you’re on the top bunk you have to climb up realllly high. There are only two toilets which act as a showers so it can be a really long wait.

    Be aware that if you book the 8 bed dorm it’s actually a 16 bed dorm. Two rooms are joined without a door in between. Staff were helpful and did not stop cleaning. A vacuum in the actual capsule would be great, as it was quite sandy all around the mattress, however everything else was very clean. Perfect location near beach, bars and cafes. A nice little court yard out the back. Basic breakfast.

    Gargarin house is in a great location. However I don't think lived up to the good reviews. I slept in the 5 bed dorm, next to a window with a small bamboo blind so the light from the street light shone on my all night. I saw a staff member once when I checked in and not again. After settling in I went to ask for some recommendations but the staff member was gone. The 2 toilet/shower bathrooms are very small and found the communal areas quite dirty. Okay for a nights stay.

    Hostel with basically no atmosphere. The location is good, but that's almost all positive I can say about it. There are 2 small toilets for the whole hostel that are already small for a toilet but work as a shower at the same time. The kitchen has basically nothing and only one hotplate for cooking. The people who are working in the hostel are quite unfriendly and give the impression you annoy them. So if you just need a place to sleep its okay, but nothing more.
