Emily Blakeley

07 September 2009 Emily would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel was really well located, the staff spoke good English and were happy to organise a taxi for us (although it didn't have a meter - a trip to the airport should cost about 10lev from here, fyi).We were also given a free drink voucher for their sister hostel up the road.A convenient little place for a stay of 1 or 2 nights; it is a bit annoying that the 'ensuite' isn't in the room, as the staff use it too!

Disliked: Emily left no negative feedback.

14 August 2009

Liked: This place could be great, if not for the old lady owner sleeping on the couch!Every time you come into the living room she's there, smoking endless cigarettes and watching TV. It really ruins the vibe of what could be a great and friendly place.If the old lady (who's nice enough) would go somewhere else at night it would be much better.

Mirjam Allik

03 August 2009 Mirjam would recommend this property

Liked: The private room we were at was very nice and clean. The area was nice also - in the center but not noisy.The free internet was not so good - it was in a dorm room and very slow. A small annoyance was that there were no trash bins in the room and they did not like it very much when we left our stuff there the last day to pick them up later. They did not have much space do hold bags.

Liked: Amazing location, close to everything and easy to find if youre out late at night and have no idea where you are! Showers were nice and warm, breakfast was good, staff were friendly. What more can I say? There were hardly any other guests, so I didnt really meet anyone there, but as a hostel it was great.

21 November 2007 James would recommend this property

Liked: I had a private apartment, so we were actually totally independent. Its right in the centre half a minute away from Vitosha Blvrd. Apartments are nice, with heating facilities, kitchen living room and good value for money.

Disliked: James left no negative feedback.
