Amazingly beautiful house! Big, spacious rooms with super comfy antique beds and a comfortable common area that felt like a swanky living room. Great location, about five minutes from the pedestrian center. Lovely courtyard with an outdoor kitchen, and free breakfast with meats and cheeses and vegetables along with the usual bread and cereal. Staff are pleasant and helpful, and...

At 37, I've stopped sleeping in youth hostels for a while. My friend and I were in a room with 3 other strangers (room 7). I would probably have loved it if I were younger and still ok with sleeping in hostels. In the end we spent as little time as possible there, because it was unpleasant to share this...

Well, when you book a Bed in a 5 Bed mixed Dorm Room you have to expect, that you will share the room with 3 more "strangers". You have the option to book a Private Twin Room, but you decided to go for a Dorm. As you said - it is your first experience to sleep in a Dorm and...

This hostel is run by friendly, helpful staff and its beauty is that it is an old-style house situated in the Old Town around the corner from Nebet Tepe and Hisar Kapia - that is why we chose it. However, our experience of it was marred a little by two things and I appreciate I can only give a recount...

It's a very specific place. A very old house adapted to be a hostel. Inside, everything ancient, with squeaky stairs and doors all around. If you are into old architecture you will definitely like this place...

This place is incredible. The hostel itself is incredibly beautiful; full of character and rustic charm. All areas of the hostel were spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was substantial. The location could not have been better; right in the middle of the picturesque Old Town. I thought the stay was incredible value for money...

The place is really good. What I liked most were the bathrooms. They are really spacious, so are the rooms. And about them, the furniture's style brings you back centuries back, so amazing. The food is alright if you are not picky eater. Ten points to the staff for letting Veneta ( the cat ) to keep us company in...

They need to raise the prices. This 10 buck hostel is making my 30 buck hotel look like a dump-hole. The staff were very honest, flexible, kind. The hostel is beautiful. They beds are comfortable. The breakfast delicious. Therenis a reason this place as high ratings. Also, this hostel is right where you want to be.
