    Staff was amazing! They held our luggage including putting our expensive camera equipment separately to insure it’s safety. The room was clean with curtains on the the bunks and plugs with every bed. Our en-suite only had a shower which was great but clogged a little. The room didn’t have great a/c but they left a window open and the fan did wonders for the top bunks. Even with the window open you couldn’t hear what was going on below. The atmosphere in the common room was great at night. The only issue was

    Very cool hostel in Sofia. It has a high capacity for guests and a great common area so this is definately the place for meeting other travellers. 18 bed mixed dorm was absolutely fine. Staff were always polite and helpful. Would recommend!

    Basic hostel, no breakfast but a decent kitchen. Definitely dated and probably could do with an update/refresh, but good value none the less. Bunks are great, each includes a light, plug, small safe box and a curtain.

    Very Good

    The hostel was clean and in a great location, and the settings were quite nice. Even though it was so central it was very quiet. The common areas were very very quiet though with most people on their phones and not interacting, even groups of friends sitting in silence with people working on their laptops. Luckily I had some really fun people in my room and we went out to bars and did stuff together.

    Pros: location was perfect, nice roommates Cons: this place was SO dirty and smelly; the rooms, the bathrooms even the staff somehow. I can say with confidence I would not stay here again.

    location is ok but I am happy I stayed only for a transition night. I really like hostels but I am used to certain standards of cleaningness and common sense stuff like the room is noisy (from the street ) and it gets really hot and sweaty although it was september and already less hot. So you have to choose between opening the window to breath or having less noise from the street. For more than one night i dont recommend as you cant really sleep properly. kitchen is not well maintained.
