    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!

    The hostel has a great Bulgarian charm about it, Stephen is an exceptional host, the tasty cooked breakfasts set you up for a day of skiing on the slopes. I will be back for a 3rd season for sure!

    Steve, and Tim were great! Great Homemade breakfast in the morning and very close to a lot of good cheap restaurants. I enjoyed the fact we were a 10 minute walk away from the Gondola and Main Street because we could get to easily without worrying about the noise of the night life! Both Steve and Tim were very knowledgeable which was very helpful! I will definitely be back to Bansko and will be staying at this place again!

    Awsome place! Good atmosphere and location. Breakfast in the morning before heading up the slopes and great place to relax after a day of snowboarding. Tim and Stephen are great hosts and will help with everything from restaurant/nightlife recommendations to snowboarding tips.

    Absolutely brilliant experience there, the place is great, met great people. Steve the owner is a really nice guy and wants to help you out in any way he can, even went a got us some French bread from the supermarket. You will love this place, bar is open most nights and Tim who works on the bar invites you into a fb group so you can meet the rest of the hostel and meet up on the slopes if you like and shows you where some cool jumps are. Highly recommend this place. Will be going back!
