    Really nice hostel to stay at, great location--easily walkable from the main square and the bus station, near supermarkets. Has a kitchen and communal space, really spacious. Beds are very simple. I did think it was a few Euros more per night than it should have been but all accommodation seems to be pricey in Sofia. Had it been a bit cheaper I would have stayed longer but it is a nice place.

    Nice hostel with great people, staff is really friendly and the place is really clean. The only thing I didn’t like is that the rooms aren’t locked with a key(card) or anything. So I could just walk in every room.

    Great staff and people which suited me perfectly. It is not the cleanest or safest place in the world to be honest. But it does the job for a few days! Strange that you have a washing machine but no dying/dryer....
