    I’ve been there 3 nights and really enjoyed the style of the hostel, the location is very good- close to everything , fresh fruits, berries and vegetables just cross the street. The owners were very friendly, helped me with good recommendations, helped me with the laundry. Shared areas are cozy, you can meet more travelers there. Would definitely visit again 👍🏾

    This is a really great hostel, in a good location in Varna. It has a great feel for a hostel in a beach town, and I definitely recommend anyone to stay here if you come to Varna!

    Good theme hostel 'Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum', the staff was super helpful and the place is close to all Varna attractions. The mattresses are horrible, felt like I was sleeping on a park bench. I think I hit a bad crowd because the atmosphere was a little low but nothing to do with the hostel. Biggest con for me was the mattresses, I wouldn't stay here again unless they replace them.

    We really enjoyed our stay, the hostel is in a great location close to everything. The decor inside is really cool and colourful. The staff were really nice and he told us about things going on, his daughter is adorable and so is his dog! There wasn't much atmosphere but this was probably mainly due to covid so can't really complain other than that was a great stay would recommend :)

    Great hostel to meet people and central to all the sights in Varna city. The room I stayed was small and the shared bathrooms could probably do with an update. Otherwise the staff are friendly and helpful with local information.

    The building is really very very old, no signs of a recent renovation, it needs an urgent refurbishment. We had an old, non functioning sink in our private bedroom which was bizzarre. The owners live there and you kind of feel that you are imposing on their free time when they invite their friends in the backyard. The lady at the reception was not friendly but the her husband was really very nice. Their kid was lovely. The location is good, very central. We met a few lovely people there
