Hostel Old Plovdiv, Plovdiv, Bulgaria
9.4
10th Jan 2018

Wonderful and welcoming staff, excellent location in Old Town, heritage house, good bathrooms, heat is well-maintained, good vegan/vegetarian breakfast, provides map and info on arrival, comfortable bed and fast wifi. Only thing is in the winter, kitchen (which is outside) has water turned off so would be little hard to cook and cleanup. I would stay here again when in area and Plovdiv does deserve more than a day.

7th Jan 2018

Very easy to walk to, near center, great staff, lower beds are too close to floor so difficult to sit on. Spiral staircase can be hard to take bag up and difficult if you have knee problems. Nice Stove in sitting area. Guests talking in sitting area can be heard all over late at night - either have quiet time after 11 PM or better sound insulation!

Easy 10-15 minute walk from Bus Station, this is in reality a hostel with hotel facilities that are immaculate and brand-new. Dorms have ensuite bath-toilet plus three more outside. Has elevator, provides map and all info, large dining and sitting area. Owner couple Aleksander and Maria are very welcoming and hospitable. Easy walk to lake and little longer to Samuels Fortress. Wonderful place to stay. I will certainly stay here when in area.

Staff is great, especially owner brothers Asdren and Azren. Early check-in is allowed, maps and info are provided and they will do everything in their power to help including calling cabs and checking bus schedules. Taking luggage to fourth floor without elevator is hard, to say the least! Due to New Years, things were helter-skelter and not very clean. My insulin was discarded from refrigerator without verifying what it is (!) but I could retrieve it from trash.

Hostel didn’t respond to pre-arrival email but all emails after arrival were answered and tickets printed so that might be a one-off issue. Stairs to 4th floor can be too much – help with luggage would be appreciated. Good clean place in the center of town. Nice bathrooms and beds. Owner Ahmed and Stefan very helpful. Provides map and detailed info on places to visit and see. Should change water kettle in kitchen! Take the 10 AM walking tour they recommend with Enes – you won’t regret it!

Easy to get to from Train Station and Bus Station, easy to catch local buses to go to Zapresic and Kumrovec (Marshal Tito Birthplace). Both Igor and Tony are extremely helpful, Igor remembers and provides info even late in the night making your trip a smooth one (thanks), lower beds not too comfortable, kitchen can use more space and facilities (when redesigned).

Wonderful staff and location, didn't respond to email but handled what I had requested on email. Reuben and his young staff of Christina and Feruza are excellent at handling questions and requests - enthusiastic, welcoming and courteous. Only 100 meters away is the ISKCON Govindas restaurant providing wholesome and nutritious veg meals. Walk to most everything in town. Easy to make friends due to relatively small size of hostel. I will stay here again when in area.

Wonderful new hostel, staff and location. Cavernous rooms, with 2 floors in the same room, super-spacious, well-designed, tastefully but minimally decorated. Has a restaurant (I didn't try) that appears to be popular with locals. Tram X4 from Bus station to Train Station, Bus X to Hotel Palac (last stop), then walk. Sitting spaces everywhere, heritage building, Veronica at reception helpful and courteous - I can keep describing but why not stay there and experience for yourself? I will!

Responds to emails, wonderful staff always ready to assist you (thanks Christian!), situated right at the Westbahn Train station, easy access to everywhere in Vienna and outside, access card operated doors and lockers, excellent breakfast including many items for vegetarians, spacious rooms and facilities. Here is what I didn't like: can't reserve lower beds because reservation systems not by bed but only by room. WiFi SUPER BAD - dropped all the time. Except this, they get 10.

Didn't respond to emails, need to add directions to description. Staff is helpful and location is great - walk to many vegan/vegetarian restaurants (Loving Hut, Govindas), old town square, Charles Bridge, Main Train Station and Florence Bus station, etc. Good breakfast with fruits. Facilities good but water leakage makes bathroom floors wet. Easy to interact with other travelers.

Didn't respond to emails. On arrival, Katya was very helpful and accommodated my needs and also gave detailed info on places to visit. Elevator not working. Each dorm with its own toilet/shower. Good facilities but kitchen-dining room can get very crowded when groups arrive. 20 min walk to old town, 10 min to main train station (take trolley bus OL to hostel).

Hostel right at the Brama Krakowska (Krakow Gate) - take any bus going to Brama Krakowska, get off at Brama and walk back 50 meters and hostel will be on your left. Easy walk to Lublin Castle and Bus Station. Near an excellent vegan restaurant Deliczys. Highly recommended.

Hostel on 4th floor and no elevator - issue dragging luggage up. Location may appear desolate at first glance. Anna is very helpful and knowledgeable but may need some time to warm up. Beyond these initial issues, this is an excellent place to relax and see Gdansk. Old Town 15 min walk, Trams to everywhere 100 meters away. They should add detailed directions to get to Hostel on the hostel description (Tram 8 to Stogi, get off at Music Academy). Stay here when in Gdansk - I will!

Didn't respond to email or reserve lower bunk. Staff very helpful but novice. Peaceful and quiet, great for relaxation. Don't book tours here - book tours in Old Town where you can get discounts, here you can get only full priced expensive tours. No early check-in even if beds available! Location great, very near Glonojad Vegetarian restaurant, Old Town and other attractions. You can walk to Jewish Town (30-45 min) and Schindler's Factory (45-60 min), should you desire.

Wonderful Staff, Facilities, and Location. Walk from Train Station. On arrival in early morning, I slept for a few hours and was even given a blanket by thoughtful Tanya! Less than 50m from Vegano Hooligano vegan restaurant. Zelens vegan restaurant is closeby (10-15 mins). Walk to Black Sea Port and Harbor (25 mins). Facilities are all new and beds are thoughtfully designed with light and power socket. Super helpful staff (Sonya and Nastasya). Stay here when in Odessa!

Very nice hostel with a great value for money proposition. 5-minute walking from the Goreme Otogar (Bus Station). I did Green Tour, Red Tour, Hot Balloon Ride, Transfer to Kayseri Airport, and Turkish Bath and all that came with discounts and cheap prices. One Way cafe very close to this hostel which has a page dedicated to vegetarian options but I didn't try it. Small kitchen on the terrace. Ahmet is very helpful and speaks good English - good place to stay in Goreme - highly recommended.
