We stayed 3 nights. It is a gorgeous hostel. It looks more of a luxurious hotel to us. Lot of old people staying there. Not much of a vibe. We were there late september. The beds were confortable but no bunk beds in the dorms... Look like an orphenage to me. Staff is amazing. Very helpful. Very nice. Good breakfast...

Really, you should visit Plovdiv, just to stay in this house. Hostel Old Plovdiv will be the main attraction you are visiting . Such hospitality and sophisticated details in service are rarely see. Furthermore the price is more than good. Btw, you will fall in love with their cats.

The staff are very nice and helpful, and...
