Liked: A very home-feeling hostel, you will feel like a guest who live in a Bulgarian home (and actually this is the owner's home), with gentle indian music playing in the common room. Best ever breakfast with homemade bread and honey, very good valued place to stay in Veliko Tarnovo.

Liked: absolutely amazing location on the oldest street, with a balcony overlooking the river and monument and houses on the cliff side.. just like a postcard of VT. staff were very friendly, I was invited to join them and their friends many tines just relaxing and chatting (and eating) on the balcony. the hostel has a great atmosphere with Bulgarian music always playing, it feels like a home opposed to a hostel. and freshly home made bread for breakfast! would definitely recommend, one of my favourite hostels that I have stayed in

Disliked: there are no lockers or room locks, but the hostel is only small and felt very safe to me anyway.

Liked: A great place to relax in Veliko Turnovo. The community of individuals that run this hostel are welcoming and down to earth. The hostel itself is homely and authentic. No bells and whistles, just a good place to unwind from travels and recharge your soul. The hostel also has a great view overlooking the river and the cliff side houses of V.Turnovo. Breakfast was simple yet delicious. We were served wholesome healthy food, all homemade by our hosts. If you are looking for a quiet and thoughtful place to stay in V. Turnovo, Nomads is a great option.

Liked: The other guests

Disliked: Didn t live up to their write up. It said in the, booking confirmation, Free pickup,(no mention there of price minimum) so having a sore back, asked if they could pick me up. they said yes, then no at the last minute when I confirmed it was bus not train station, giving really vague directions and telling me to walk. I felt let down, but all I got was arguements about how easy it was to get there.Only if you know the way!Patronising emails don t help the customer. Unfriendly welcome, cold dorm, uncomfortable bed. Luckily the other guests were nice.Had a miserable stay, unprofessional, misleasing write up, would not recommend.

Liked: Breakfast as very nice. Homely atmosphere. Everything was very sharing, home-made cookies on offer as well as home-made wine one night! Free spring water on offer all the time. Free internet and computer use.

Disliked: Hot water in the 4 bed dorm wasn't quite enough for all of us to shower in the morning. A little cool in the room and no remote for heat pump although we didn't ask. A few funny black worms made their way into our room but they were easily disposed of.

Liked: Loved loved loved Nomads in Veliko Tarnovo! The staff made us feel completely at home, and we wound up staying a few extra nights. We met some great folks at the hostel. The staff is excited and knowledgeable about the area — helping us plan hikes and outings nearby, as well as letting us in on the right places to eat. We couldn't ask for more! The hostel seems very active in the community, which we don't often find and it made a great impression on us.

Liked: The guys were good hosts and very helpful. We got 4 people together to share a tour with transport to Plovdiv and it was brilliant to visit places we could not have seen on a bus. Go inside the Russian monument if you take the tour! Location is fantastic you can sit on the balcony and look out on the oldest street in Velikon Tornovo, and an easy walk to town restaurants. Breakfast was also very good home grown and home made.
