Could do much much better. Nice staff but NOT really a HOSTEL. Its more like a guesthouse with cheap superbasic rooms. Dont expect too much although not as bad as other dodgy places in the same area...

Friendly and welcoming staff. The room was spacious and clean. While it's hard to complain after paying so little, I did find the bed too narrow and the room too cold for my liking.

Do not doubt! This is your place! No worries!!! Just in Sofia's downtown near to everything. People are very kind and made my stay very pleasant! The rooms are clean and cosy! I certainly will stay again in this hotel!
