Reviewed 25 July 2012

Pros: clean, friendly staff - (willing to help with directions, apologetic for mistake on website about AC), no problems accessing bathroom, decent location

Cons: 1) NOISY, NOISY, NOISY - my room overlooked a very busy street with trams coming through every 2-3 minutes - they sometimes vibrate the building, however relatively quite from midnight - 7am, but don't try to sleep after 7am or get a room away from the road. 2) Very HOT - so you have to either keep the window open (remember the noise factor) or pay 3 euros for 24 hours of A/C. 3) not the cheapest place in town - I chose to stay here because I wanted my own room with AC (which was listed on the website), but surprise, surprise when I arrived the AC was extra. 4) don't be fooled by breakfast included - coffee and a packaged crossiant

Reviewed 7 August 2010

I booked this hostel recently for a short one-night trip to Sofia. When we finally arrived at the hostel, and it is incredibly difficult to find it, the door was locked and the place seemed empty. After many attempts, we finally managed to call the owner and we were told we are LATE, and since we were the only guests they assumed we are not going to show up. We were not told this place has no 24/7 reception, and the manager refused to come and let us in. Very bad experience, considering we had to go around and look for another place to stay, at it was midnight already. I would not recommend this place to anyone, it is unreliable.
