    This was my third time staying in Bansko, and at Le Retro hostel as well. There are lots of improvements (especially with regard to heating and insulation), but the best thing is that host attitude towards guests did not change. It is still the best amenity of this accommodation. Bravo and go ahead Stephen! P.S.: Thanks for the takeaway sandwich.

    Steve was an amazing host. I couldn't thank him enough for putting up with me for 12 days. The hostel creates great atmosphere for everyone. Very chilled out and a great place to make amazing memories. A great restaurant and definitely has one of my favourite veggie dishes stir-fry tofu with veg and noodles mmmmmmm! I will be back for some more. Thank you.

    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.
