This award winning amazing hostel is a converted 150 year old traditional house, located in the 'old city'. It provides a great breakfast (with coffee machine) - coffee & tea available all day; large showers with fittings that actually work!!! Great & comfortable beds, dorms are not over crowded. Super helpful & friendly staff. Great garden with covered outdoor kitchen....

This hostel is simply wonderful. Situated in the Old Town in a historic building. The room was warm, stylish and comfortable. There was a welcome board when we arrived that was such a nice touch. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We will be back!!!!!

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 hostel is fantastic, especially for the price.
