    Amazing owners, friendly and very social place. Close to the beach. They make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive and go the extra mile to help you with your stay. Family dinners or drinking games or outings every night. Don’t stay anywhere else!

    As someone who’s had plenty of Party Hostel experience, Hair of the Dog really delivers, besides the amazing dinners they cook each night, they guys really kill it making a fun atmosphere of the place as well as sending you out to some chaotic parties. Also do the 2.5 challenge. I dare ya ;)

    Clean, comfortable rooms, good kitchen facilities, and quiet areas if you need alone time. It's about a 15 minute walk to the beach, and you can catch a bus close by to Varna (about 20 minutes away) to explore. Beer and snacks are priced very reasonably. They have cookouts several times a week and there are activities EVERY day (pub crawl, beach party, etc.) that you can sign up for. Staff are FANTASTIC. Very fun, social environment that is welcoming to all. I had a BLAST and highly recommend.

    Good place to meet other people. Not in Varna, Golden Sands or near a beach but people stick together and cab it. Owners make this place, they were not certain they're be back next year so watch out in case it changed owner!

    We arrived late to the Hostel and were greeted with a lovely dinner that was fairly priced. There was a consistent good atmosphere (due to the friendly staff) around the outside bar and it was easy to get into town. However, the rooms had no locks, there were no lockers and the WiFi was quite poor. The bathroom was dirty and there was no shower curtain but overall it’s worth the price because it is very cheap and it’s close to the beach.

    The place could definitely use some cleaning and improvements in the facilities. If all you are looking for is partying and do not care much about visiting the beaches and getting to know the place itself, then maybe this is the hostel for you. The owners are good people and the garden outside is very nice.
