I think this is one of the most terrible hostels I have ever been to. The staff was very unfriendly and some of them even racist. It seemed that the room was not cleaned, the smell of beer was permanently there, what made it hard to sleep. There were burning spots in the sheets and even blood, very disgusting!

The location is perfect, very close to the city centre and the cool places. However, unless you: - Are a fan of anarchical and communist ideas of everyone sharing everything with one other order or ideas of property; - You like the idea of squatting in what could be a cheese factory (the blue cheese is already greatly present on...

Although first appearances were quite good (location, impression, styling) the rest failed to meet up to any standard or expectation. There were not enough bedsheets, causing some of us to sleep without covers. The owner turned out to...

With a large study group of 34 people, we arrived at the Nightingale Hostel with high expectations, due to the reviews here on TripAdvisor. I'd say that the only positive thing of this hostel is its location, which is close to the Sofia city center. Despite its good location, our group was shocked by the dirtiness of the hostel, with...

The hostel is in a great location, in the city centre and a short walk to everywhere, but it's in definite need of refurbishment. It can accomodate very large groups which is a good thing, although, they only had 10 towels between 46 of us so we had to go out and buy our own. The showers were always boiling...
