    Had the best time at Le Retro (stayed for 5 nights) Definitely one of the best small hostels I've stayed in, and the only one in bankso. Very chilled and relaxed. Hot showers and warm rooms. Very clean and comfortable beds with lovely views of the mountain/old town from the balcony. Can't go wrong!!!. Also, Great way to meet other skiiers, snow boarders. The owner makes an amazing breakfast and has a small bar, which is a great meeting point before hitting the town. Definitely return!!

    This was by far one of the best hostels my friends and i have stayed at. Stephen has created an extremely welcoming and friendly atmosphere. He cooks a delicious breakfast and is very helpful with answering any questions. The hostel is also a short pleasant walk to the ski lift/gondola and most ski equipment rental stores as well as the bus station.

    Stephen was fantastic host. The hostel has a very homely feel to it and as it is small you really get to know the guest staying there. I had a fantastic stay at Le Retro and would definately return in the future.

    Both the hostel itself and the host were fantastic. The hospitality of the host is an overall 11/10. You can most definitely expect me to be back at the Le Retro Hostel in the future.

    I'm a solo traveller who came to Bansko to Snowboard. I made a great group of friends to ski with whilst at the Hostel, a nice mix of boarders and skiers. My stay at Le Retro Hostel was so comfortable, the place was cosy and clean, full of friendly faces and 3 gorgeous dogs. Steve was very welcoming and full of info, he really did make us all feel right at home and he made a lovely breakfast. I highly recommend this hostel and I will definitely stay again if I head back to the Bansko mountain.

    Really enjoyed my stay here! Stephen is an excellent host that gave the best advice for the town and discount on ski rental. Breakfast was excellent and starts at 7.30 to give you plenty of time to catch an early gondola. There's a 15/20 minute uphill walk into town but it's a good way to warm up your legs and still in a nice part of town. Was fairly quiet when there but still able to meet others and would highly recommend.
