It's very clean. We,5 people, stayed in a big room for 1 night and there's a still space for 2 more people. Nadia and her friend, who are responsible for the house, are so kind and helpful for places to see around. Nadia also gave some advices for things to do in Sofia. Thanks for everything.

Ah, the rooms, the beds, the personal creative atmosphere... It was exactly what I needed. It’s a next level accommodation. It’s a home-hand-made luxury home. Everything fresh and new made by the owners. I had the rest and at the same time I had the work done and I got inspired for my future projects. There were other artists staying... More

The dorm is a nice big room under the roof. Really nice place to meet great people. Everyone working there is happy to do so. Plus a nice garden and good location ... I can only recommend it to everyone

Sofia Canape Connection is a real backpacker’s hostel. It has a lovely outdoor patio where you can sit, relax and meet other travelers. There is also room to sit in the basement area downstairs (which has a computer for guests to use). The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They can set you up with city tours, out of town...

I had a great time at Canape Connection. The staff was wonderful. Nice and accommodating. The room was nice and spacious and the beds were comfy. And the people I met were wonderful. This hostel appears to attract only the best in terms of company. The location was great, right off of Vitosha Boulevard in the center of the city.... More

Very friendly staff. Eventhough I was told by the staff that breakfast would be limited since it wasn't high season, there was still enough to choose from. Located about 5 minutes from the main boulevard. There is no big lounch, but the yard, kitchen and even the reception office are good places to hang out.

This hostel is well worth it's money. Beds are wide and comfy, breakfast is good and location is close to the main sights and bars. Staff is super friendly and helpful.

Arriving in a large city to be turned away from first choice for accommodation is not pleasant at any time, let alone, late at night. In Sofia the Canape Connection Hostel was close by and our group of four were made very welcome and given bunks in the shared dorm. This was the beginning of a great experience provided by... More

Stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. Dorm room is in the loft and has 7-8 beds. What I really like about this dorm is that there are no bulk beds (I don't hate bulk beds but surery a normal bed is better, isn't it?). Beds are just matress with a base but they are confortable enough. Breakfast is really... More

I slept both in a 4-bed dorm and the 8-bed dorm. Usually I like my privacy, but I preffered to stay in the 8-bed dorm because the room is such a cozy and peaceful place. The hostel is small and therefore it didn't feel like I was staying in a hostel, rather in a family house. The entire house is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Early 2016 Canape Connection transformed from a hostel into a guest house - the best alternative for the travelers who travel а lot but hide from the craziness of the youth hostels and prefer to share the moments with the beloved one/s. Retrospectively, the three of us - Nadia, Nadia and Ivo - sharing the same passion for traveling, photography and design, started a hostel in 2009. Back then we created the hostel we always wished to stay at when traveling. Over the years we gathered life and professional experience and felt the natural urge for a change. The hostel has always been a reflection of ourselves and now, as we evolved, the new concept of our place matches our new path. Welcome to our freshly renovated house with self designed hand-made beds. We now offer private rooms suitable for solo travelers or couples, families and friends. We believe that you, as our guest, will experience and enjoy: - Uniqueness and personal touch in the room design. - Solid wide wooden beds with queen- or king-size mattresses. - Quite backyard for recreation or socializing. - Central location in a vivid neighborhood, well connected to public transport, close to landmarks and artistic spots. - Quality and healthy cuisine in the nearby traditional, bio-organic, vegetarian or ayurvedic restaurants or tea houses. - Fast and reliable WiFi connection. - Tips, suggestions and assistance with everything you need during your stay. You arrive as a guest but you definitely leave as a friend! Welcome to Canape Connection Guest House! Yours, Nadia, Ivo & Nadia ... more   less
