    Full points! A lovely hostel housed in a traditional home built in 1830. Steve makes an amazing veggie omelet (or whatever you want) for breakfast included in the price, and served as early as 7.30 a.m. Rooms are comfy if small (bathroom really tiny) and the general decor is 'boutique'. And it's in the heart of the historical old town.. Lovely stay!

    It’s difficult to fault what Le Retro offers. Perfect location (would be great for summer and winter seasons). The communal areas are so nicely done, you can eat your (free & amazing) breakfast either on the deck or on the balcony overlooking the mountains. Stephen and the team are great hosts and I hope to find time to visit again for the winter season!!

    If you like hostels with character then you should stay here. It looks and feels just like the houses and buildings in Old Town Bansko, with a few nice modern touches, and a great courtyard design. The location in the middle of the old town is perfect, and the breakfast was the best I’ve had in any hostel.

    I highly recommend this hostel. I stayed in one of the private rooms with two beds. Perfectly located, close to restraints, shops and the bus station. The main lodge is beautifully decorated. The breakfast was delicious!! The owner was incredibly kind, knowledgeable and helpful. The place is located close to transport in the mountains. I hope to return!

    I loved Stephen’s hostel in Bansko! I came here on a whim, but I’m totally glad that I did because the hostel was lovely, the drinks at the hostel bar were cheap, and the area was beautiful. Definitely worth it to stay at Le Retro since it’s a bit away from the noise of the ski village, but still in easy walking distance to the mountain. Can’t wait to come back in summer when the restaurant is finished!

    Great hostel! Stayed during the summer and was a great time! The man who worked there drove us wherever we wanted to go for a great price and gave us all the information we wanted. Did the laundry for us and served us in the lovely pub room that the hostel has. Great hostel would definitely recommend!

    Great jumping off point if you want to do some hiking. Steven is a fantastic host and will have the answers to any of your questions. Excellent breakfasts. Good WiFi. Clean. 3 awesome dogs. It’s small, so you’ll meet everyone staying there at one time or another.
