We stayed for one night in that hostel, because we were about to travel to Greece the next morning and we chose to sleep there because it was close to the center and to the location where we cougth our bus to Greece. We were tired but I surely couldn't sleep because all night I got this feeling of something... More

I can only confirm what a previous reviewer of this place wrote about the danger of bed bugs. I stayed for one night in the place and it was a terrible experience. Already upon arriving with my partner, I had the sense that something was not right about the bed. But I was tired and decided to just not look... More

I decided to stay in Hostel Gulliver my first night in Sofia- about a week ago. When I got in, I did a cursory check of the bed- I got bedbugs a few years ago in India and now check obsessively whenever I go to a new place... but I only looked over the foot of the bed since it... More

The hostel is in the city centre...the perfect location so that one can visit the main attractions of the city...only 5 min walk from every attraction. The outside of the building was pretty scary but once you get inside you will see a cute little hostel which is very modern and clean. The staff is freindly although we had to... More

I agree with most of the other reviewers. After seeing the outside of the building we were a little worried, but the hostel itself is clean, safe and great value for money. We had a private double room with en-suite. We had towels and soap provided. We were given a couple of packaged croissants and some fresh ground coffee for... More

Great location, clean secure hostel. Service depends upon who is on duty. Breakfast is poor and if the coffee runs out don't expect it to be refilled until the staff requires a cup!

The hostel is a little scary as you approach it, being based in a rather run down 'apartment' block. However, once in the hostel itself (its one of the apartments) it is newly renovated, very clean, modern and well situated. It's only a small place with a couple of rooms - we had the private one which was en-suite and... More
