Matthew Elder

18 May 2009 Matthew would recommend this property

Liked: The couple running the place were very friendly and went out of their way to help us and make us feel at home. Breakfast was good, as well as the company. I would recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Sofia, and would definately stay here again. Just a quick tip, make sure you buy a ticket for your backpack when catching a tram because they class it as a person, and you will be fined.

Customer review

09 May 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Awesome! Hostel facilities nothing special...kitchen OK, 3 computers more than enough for the number of guests, breakfast on par with Bulgarian standard. Location is nice & central, and about a 20 minute walk from the train & bus stations. They include laundry service for free which is a great bonus. But the best things were the outrageous managers Mihail and Silvy...we've been traveling for 5 months and have never come across any hostel staff as helpful, genuine, funny and hospitable as them. No joke, it's like having a family in Sofia! Be prepared to learn lots about Bulgarian history, politics, and geography, whether you want to or not...if you have a sense of humor and adventure you will love it here, though if you just want someplace to hunker down without talking to anyone it may be a little much.
