Intersof Hostel
Ranked #99 of 137 Speciality Lodging in Sofia
Reviewed 19 April 2009

The hostel is not very clean. The bathroom is shared and it does not have enough higienical messures. The price was not the negociated one by phone (they charge you more, even double, if they can). Double room with a little towel for both. Screams of other's privacy. Noisesy and little curtains, so lots of outside lights.
I do not like to go to very expensive places, but this place could be even dangerous. So it is worthy to pay a little more.
In a word: terrible. Do not go there!

Short comment to the rate:
1. We try to book a room twice by writing emails using Intersoft web page: http://www.sofia-hostel.net/. There was no response, no email or sms (as we asked for this) with confirmation or refusal.
2. Calling: managers of the hostels - two nice ladies did not speak English and asked to write an email (we wrote emails with no later response as I wrote above)
3. There is no parking (I saw that on same web pages with hostels information it was stated that Intersoft had a parking place, well this is not true). Parking place is outside of the hostel about 300 meters and costs 6lv till 12pm. and 7lv till 8 am. next day every next hour costs additional 2 lv.
4. There was no fridge in our double room (the same false info: I saw that on same web pages with hostels information)
5. There was only one change of towels for one person in spite of the fact it was a double room
6. Shared bathroom stank
7. Price of the double room is different from this on web page mentioned above (double room costs 20 Euro not 16 Euro)
8. You can pay only by cash. We weren’t prepared for this so we had to find a cash machine, according to the sign language of the hostess it should be near the hostel… it took us almost 30 minutes to find it as it wasn’t just by the corner but far from the hostel.
Summarizing I do not recommend this hostel to anyone. I am sure that you can find in Sofia better stay.
