Liked: Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, and excellent location.

Disliked: It was slightly hard to find the hostel, as it is tucked away off the main street. Also, I noticed that its sign does not say "Green Hostel", but another name - which was understandably confusing.

Liked: Friendly staff, and the perfect city-centre location - this was a great place to stay during my visit to Sofia. The hostel is small, cosy and comfortable, with fast internet and free coffee - pretty much everything I could ask for, and well worth the price.

Disliked: No complaints at all.

21 October 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel itself is called Levitt Hostel, so I'm not sure why it's advertised as Green Hostel...this can be a little bit confusing. Aside from that, It was a great location on Vitosha Road - the main pedestrian road which is lined with shops, cafes, and restaurants. Also easy access to the metro. The hostel was very bright and clean. lots of natural light coming in from the windows, and really helpful staff.

Disliked: There are only 2 bathrooms so the wait can be a bit long, especially in the mornings. Also, it would be nice if check-out was at 12 noon instead of 10 am.

10 August 2012

Liked: The reception was very friendly. The intenet.

Disliked: 1- The hostle i stayed was called "levitta hostel" not green hostel - first miss leading info on the website, which confused me a lot and take me a while to work out where I am. 2- Miss-leading address - if you look at the address & the location on the google map, you'll see that poor backpackers, actually have to go to another location different to what is appearing on the website. I talked to few other guys and they have tasted the bitter taste of walking to a different hostel, based on the google map, while the actual hostel is blocks away. 3- The hostel was really dirty with no trash bins. Rubbish on the balcony, rubbish behind washing machine, a very dirty toilet. There was a dirty,black, wet pair of socks in the shower for all duration of my stay .... 4- My bedsheet had something on it, it wasnt just stain. I dont want to think what it could be 5- The photo on the website, the nice fireplace & homestyle hostel is not a photo of that place. I dont know why it is there. Is your policy allow that? 6- The youth hostel issue - I booked a female only room. when I got there the young lady asked me is it alright if you stay in a room of 4, 2 males & 2 females? I agreed as I didnt want to be difficult. At evening, I found an rather middle aged man next to my bed. I felt kinda insecure and asked the young lady to change my room, that she was kind enough and she did.
