    Highly recommend! Stephen was a super host and provided a delicious breakfast each morning. Also he was able to advise on local activities. The hostel is a short walk to the main street. It's located in a quiet area and has a great view of the mountains. Hostel offers great Laudry service and transfer/lifts, for a good fee. I highly recommend staying here, with lovely hosts, who aways provided a warm welcome and made my stay memorable. Dogs were also an absolute pleasure, very people friendly.

    This place is great. Very homely, I felt really welcome immediately. Rooms are cosy but clean. Breakfast was a nice touch! Left some stuff here while i spent a few days up the mountains and was very grateful to come back to a comfy bed and a relaxing atmosphere

    I had a lovely stay at Le Retro. The hostel is in a beautiful, quiet location that is a short walk to the town center, grocery stores, and bus/train station. Comfortable beds and nice outdoor and indoor areas to hangout. The owner is friendly and helpful, and he makes delicious breakfast!

    Just an absolutely amazing hostel, one of the best I’ve stayed in anywhere in Europe!!! The host is really friendly and accommodating, it has a great social vibe, and you’re in an incredible location to see the Bulgarian mountains without spending too much money; IMO a must-visit for anyone in Bulgaria

    We really loved staying at the Le Retro Hostel! We booked the private room with the double bed and never slept better! The owner Stephen was making us an English breakfast every morning: including coffee, some fresh fruits, cereals and toast with baked beans. The staff was always helpful with planing our day, giving recommendations and free maps.

    So very helpful and knowledgeable! I had a bit of a squeeze because I wanted to hike Vihren before boarding an early afternoon bus. There wasn't enough time to go back for bags, so the gentleman running the hostel met me at the bus station with my bags for a small fee. Thanks to him, I successfully summited and made my bus! The little dog is a sweetheart and likes to be held like a baby.
