Liked: Ideal for students, perfect location in the center, welcoming and helpful staff.

Disliked: I would suggest better keys and locking of rooms. The combination of toilet and shower in the same room is not good, should be separated.

Liked: The location, neighbourhood and the personal space in the dormitory.

Disliked: First of all, the description how to get to the hostel was inaccurate since it did not say in which direction to take the tram, so I ended up in the other side of town. Also, I booked a 4-bed dorm and was placed in a 6-bed dorm, which was fine on the one hand because there were not more than 4 people sleeping there, but still, I paid more than the others in that room because I booked the 4-bed dorm. Further, the showers and toilets are not very clean and are worn out. The shower on the 1st floor is literally in the same space as where the toilet is, so everything gets really wet and it's a bit nasty. The staircase has no light, so when coming back in the night, it is best to have your phone ready as a torch! The staff was not very helpful; for example, I had to find myself a towel because there was no staff when I wanted to take a shower (Generally, there was no staff member at the reception desk). There also seemed to be some friction between the staff members. One big disadvantage is that the whole places lacks atmosphere: the common room is very dark and empty, with uncomfortable and worn out couches. Also, keep in mind that people of all ages are sleeping in the dorm, including very senior people. To me this was no problem, but others might not like it as much. All in one, the price is low and that makes up for a lot of the disadvantages, but you might want to spend 1 or 2 euros more for a more cosy and comfortable accommodation.

Liked: Clean hostel, centrally located

Disliked: They have only one kitchen and one balcony for smoking at 1st floor, none at 2nd floor. And we had problems connecting to the Internet which they could not solve. We had to move to another hostel because of that.

01 September 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel occupies the two floors of a building; on each floor there is an apartment with the rooms. There is also a kitchen that you can use to make your own breakfast. The young lady from the staff was absolutely lovely, nice and collaborative, giving us useful information.

Disliked: Maybe cleaniness is not their strongest point. The building needs to be renovated, it is falling apart in the rooms, especially in the bathroom, and it is not nice to see this. The rooms are not insulated so, although we were in a private room, we were waken up in the middle of the night by other guests that maybe had just arrived from the disco and kept talking loud, careless that other people were sleeping (revenge was served the next morning when we had to get ready to visit the city though!).

Liked: The staff were friendly and they tried to make my stay as comfortable as possible. Beds were comfortable and the hostel was very clean.

Disliked: Even though I respect the fact that the staff were trying to be as helpful as possible, they didn't seem to be very knowledgeable regarding places to go or public transport options. For example, when I asked a staff member how to get to the Main Bus Central Station, he said that there was only one tram (12), however the staff earlier that day advised that there were at least two trams (12 & 18).

Liked: The location of the hostel is just perfect. You can walk around, see everything important and be always rather close to the hostel. Besides going to or coming from the railway station you don't need to use public transportation. Everything is close. The stuff is very friendly and the guy from the nightshift seems to know everything, which is really awesome if you want to learn something about Bulgaria or Sofia. Really great. There is not a lot I can complain about. We got what we've expected, in a positively kind of way.

Disliked: The discription how to come to the hostel could be a little bit better and there is no elevator or something similar, so if you have a lot of luggage be beware that you have to carry them upstairs til the second or third floor!
