The location of the hostel is great, it's located right in Sofia's heart - Vitoshka, there were lots of restaurants, clubs and everything you'd need. The room I stayed in was very cozy, and this is the first hostel with comfortable and clean beds I've visited in my life. The staff was very helpful, the room was beautiful and as...

Very complicated automatic check in system with door codes, but with staff sitting in the kitchen who come out after 5 mins to give you your room key...just doesn't make sense. No hot water in the mornings, have to wait to shower until the afternoon. We visited in October, good heating in the rooms. As there is no air conditioning...

A nice clean, relatively small, hostel located in a very central location on the pedestrianised section of ul Vitosha, Hostel staff are friendly and helpful. Easy access to cafe's, bars, shops and restaurants and close to the main tourist attractions.

This hostel is right in the heart of the pedestrian street in Sofia! The worker was really helpful, and the rooms were very clean. The beds also had a curtain which was great for privacy. There wasn't a common room for people to hang out, but that was fine. Definitely recommend this hostel.

Very clean. Keypad locks so no keys required. There was a friendly human receptionist when I arrived in the afternoon. Good wifi. Downsides: Lockers were tiny (maybe 30x30x60cm). Both bathrooms were wetrooms, meaning the toilet seats and floors were always wet from the shower.

Excellent hostel, clean,comfortable and it is located in the center of Sofia! I will be back, it was a great place to visit. I love that it is in the center of Sofia and all the bars, magazines and disco places were one step from the hostel and the most cool thing is that you don't hear any noises.

A group of nine of us stayed in the Levitt Hostel, and we had an excellent experience. The rooms are spacious and clean. The managers are very helpful, but their English is basic. However, we found that to be true everywhere in Sofia, Bulgaria. Some of the beds have very large springs that bulge all over one's body. Most of...

Undeniable fact is that the location of Levitt Hostel is accessible from anywhere of your location in Sofia, but the atmosphere inside is superior to the entire city, expect mountain views.
