Despite not booking in advance we were given a very friendly welcome from the owner. The hostel featured a common area, kitchenette, bathrooms, terrace and computers with internet access which was handy.

This hostel is one of the best value we have run into in Europe. The facilities are more than adequate and the proprietor (Mihal) is amazingly helpful and accommodating. There are two computers with unlimited free internet. The breakfast buffet, although not included, features a home cooked center piece that has been amazing and well worth the price. Enjoy!

When I arrived very late the owner of the hostel received me very friendly, offering me his help and even let me use his mobile phone to to make a phone call and giving me directions on the map.

I really enjoyed this place. We got there early in the morning after the long train journey from Budapest and arrived, exhausted, way before the earliest given check-in time. However, we were made to feel right at home and were given our beds as soon as they were cleaned along with a free beer and great information on Sofia's sights....

This is a great hostel for a number of reasons, but the most important are the staff - who are sweet, friendly and welcoming. The location could not be better - most of the great sights are a couple of minutes away and there are great nightclubs just around the corner. I slept like a baby. Thank you for being...

Well, it is a very good location. It can hardly be better. The stuff is ok, helpful. Usually I'm not asking too much from a hostel: one important thing is cleanliness... it was bellow average.

The owner really makes this hostel what it is. Typical Bulgarian hospitality, Always happy to give advice, cook you breakfast or point you towards a great local restaurant. Very central and close to pretty much everything. Very sociable little place. I'd go back in a second when I'm back in Sofia.
