Plovdiv is a very beautiful city in Bulgaria which is just a few hours from Sofia and Bourgas. Istanbul is also not far from it and there are cheap buses that go there. It's underrated as it can offer its visitors a reat experience.
There are many hostels in Plovdiv and most of them were opened in the last few years. There are three major spots where Plovdiv hostels are located: the first is near the central train station, the second is near the Plovdiv University and the third is in the Old Town. Hostels in Plovdiv do not differ much in price with a few exceptions. Hostels in the Old Town are a bit hard to find as the streets are small and the whole place looks like a labyrinth but the view is amazing. However, the Old Town is in the center so you can go there easily even if your hostel is in other place. Taxis are very cheap and a better option than public transportation.
Plovdiv has been inhabited since ancient times and is one of the few constantly inhabited places in the world for the last several thousands years. It has been a major city in Medieval Ages, during the Ottoman rule, after the Independence, and now as well. There are many sights from almost any time in history and only a few cities in Bulgaria can match Plovdiv. It has two Roman theatres, more than 10 museums, Roman stadium, mosques, cathedrals and churches and of course, the Old Town which has preserved many houses with architecture from the 19th century.
There is an airport which serves a few lines to Europe. The airport is far from the city – about 25 km and there is only one bus that stops there once a day only on days when there are flights. The bus is often overcrowded. Otherwise, train connections are very good and you can go to any place in Bulgaria within a day and there are several old monasteries less than 100 km, the most famous of which is Bachkovo.
Food in Plovdiv is ridiculously cheap and you can have a great lunch for 3-4 Euros at a restaurant. There are bars and clubs for any taste and pocket and night life is quite good. There is also an annual trade fair which attracts many international companies. You need to spend at least several days in Plovdiv.
There are plenty of excellent hostels in Plovdiv and the Hostelz.com Plovdiv Hostels list is the best way to find the right hostel for your trip.

Plovdiv Travel Tips & Suggestions
I went to Plovdiv in the winter and it was pretty boring from a young person's perspective, as well as quite gloomy (and freezing). But there are a few sights, although they looked totally deserted. It was somewhat depressing.

Two nights is enough.
— MK, melburn
Plovdiv is incredible, one of my favorite cities in Europe. There is so much to see in the old town, and the residents of Plovdiv are so nice and relaxed. The highlight of Bulgaria, for me.
