Emily Blakeley

07 September 2009 Emily would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were really friendly and helpful.Location could have been a bit better - it was close to the bus station but a bit of a walk to the big hits. Also, the reception isn't 24-hours - the staff live there but there isn't someone about until 8am. You can let yourself in to the reception area, though (good or bad thing, depending on how militant about security you are!)

Heather Yalin

06 September 2009 Heather would recommend this property

Liked: We received a super nice welcome. They play good music during the day at a decent volume. Upon arrival, the outside and location of the hostel are a bit off-putting. Once you get past that, though, it's a good, quiet place to stay. Bathroom is typically Bulgarian and pretty crappy, but each room has it's own crappy bathroom. Beds are antique, so not too comfortable. Breakfast is decent with good coffee. Overall hostel is a good deal, there's WiFi, and the staff are SO helpful and friendly.

Liked: Nice hostel.. the staff was helpful and gave us a warm welcome even if we arrived at 7.30 in the morning. The breakfast (coffee and local pancakes) was nice, but unfortunately there was no kitchen.. anyway food prices in sofiya are affortable. The hostel had also a pc with internet available for free.

Liked: very cozy and centric. we had some problems with booking (it is better to call them as you make your reservation), but they were solved quickly by the staff. no doubts we would repeat the stay in The Rooms, a pity the city itself is not as charming as to stay for long.

Customer review

11 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: i had mixed feelings about this hostel, though i would stay there again. the atmosphere was cool and the staff is friendly. i stayed in a mixed 2 people room and i liked it a lot. that being said, the bathroom has the bulgarian standard of the shower being UNseparated from the toilet and sink, which is extremely uncomfortable. but a LOT of hostels have the same issues, as do private houses. also, we were told breakfast was at 9, but even at 9:45 no one of the staff was even awake yet. actually, when we arrived around 8 am the previous day, no one was awake either to let us in.BUT it's cheap! and clean! so tonight, i am staying there again as we head out of bulgaria.
