    Everything in this hostel was great, but what I loved the most was the staff. They were always there for me when I needed to ask questions. I arrived late the first night and it was easy to find and they opened the door quickly. They were always checking that the kitchen and bathroom were clean. The room was big and overall, the hostel was comfortable. Also, it was right in the city centre. I recommend this hostel to everyone and would definitely choose it again. Thank you for the kindness!

    I was very happy with my time in Sofia and Hostel Ivory Tower. The staff were very approachable and gave excellent travel advice and information. Facilitated my arrival on a late flight into Sofia and were very welcoming and helpful even at nearly 2am. Incredibly central location, near a nice Serbian restaurant, which I frequented two days in a row and can highly recommend. Also, it's quite close to the government buildings and one could even hear the protest chants in the distance.

    The location is pretty good, close to the main attractions and Serdika metro station. Staff is super friendly. The beds are comfortable and the air con in the room was working well to keep us warm! Cleanness of bathrooms needs a bit of work but overall average. I would go again if in Sofia.

    This is a great place for short term stay, because from my observation there are a lot of individuals living in a hostel therefore there is no real ‘travel’ atmosphere. The host is lovely, he cares about your stay and gives many good tips. The room was okay, but there was no place to store bags as well as the doors stay open for the whole night which doesn’t feel particularly safe. Moreover the beds were broken. Nevertheless, the location and value for money pays off uncomfortable sleep.

    The staff was so helpful and caring! When we had questions they were happy to help. The dorm beds were pretty good. Lockers would be nice. Toilets and showers were okay, but could use some maintenance and some extra cleaning. They were working on that though. No breakfast, but plenty of food in the neighbourhood. One thing to note: the average guest was about 50 years old and male. I don't know why, maybe coincidence. But if you're a young woman you might want to book a female dorm. :)

    Bed was very uncomfortable . I left after one night. I wanted to talk to the staff about it but they were no where to be found. I look for someone in the morning and in the late afternoon when I decided to leave. I left the key in the front desk and left.
