I personally ...

Description - Hostel

“…POSSIBLY THE COOLEST HOSTEL IN EUROPE”, according to the British “THE GUARDIAN”, are not just words, but rather the sensation to feel at home, when actually you are not.
Art-Hostel, a well known and recognized around Europe and beyond cultural hub, celebrates its 10th ANNIVERSARY as one of the first hostels in Bulgaria.
If you wish to join a decade of communication, meeting locals and integration of cultures, you would be more than welcome to join the club!
Besides this, we offer you everything you might expect a hostel to offer + private accommodation for those who need it.
Join us in to the next decade of stimulating international relationships, culture and last but not least, Art in all its shapes and forms!!!

We do spend quite some time in our garden !!!

The Guardian:
The Art - Hostel is as much a cultural hub as it is a bed for the night. With a Parisian mentality and a Russian thirst for liquor, this is a base for the confused protagonists of Sofia's subculture. Like joining a family for a few days, with seemingly never-ending parties at the weekends, this is quite possibly the coolest hostel in Europe.

... this laid-back, nook-and-cranny hostel gets its subtitle for its leafy courtyard out back. Past guests have helped transform small spaces-like the wee kitchen and cool hang-out area inside-into a cozy scene where travelers mix with arty locals, who sometimes stage exhibitions
