Raisky Kat Hostel Reviews

Rude neighbor

Don't go to this place! There is a mad guy called Fernando, he's like a resident evil there, he called my wife a "f***ing prostitute" and behaved as a bad ass until we left. Bad choice for a stay, especially if you don't like being called "a prostitute" from complete strangers. Stay anywhere else in Plovdiv.

A very nice place place

We stayed five days at Raisky Cat Hostel, a very nice place that we can recommend to others. I arrived at Raisky Cat Hostel middle of the night when I arrived was the host waited outside, a very sweet and kind lady. My husband and sister had arrived earlier. The room we had was large and clean. The breakfast was served outside in a small cozy patio. The coffee we got on Raisky Cat Hostel was the best we had in Plovdiv. There was also served something different every day for breakfast, a perfect breakfast to start your day. After a busy day, we could relax in the small courtyard before we were ug and dinner. The lady vho run Raisky Kat H. speak english very very good.


Could be better

First of all, this is not hostel but Bed and breakfast without breakfast. Second, location is perfect and room was clean. Then, owner is really helpful. Finally, mattress is just too solid.


The Raisky Kat Hostel is located in a very quiet part of Plovdiv. It is within short walking distance to the old city and the main area with all the restaurants and coffeehouses. The easiest way to get to the hostel is with a taxi -- just tell the driver the street name and he will take you to the hostel. You won't need a taxi besides getting to and from the hostel because you can walk everywhere else.

The rooms, like the three-person room we stayed in, are clean and have everything you would need, but like the rest of the hostel they are very old. The shower/toilets are very old and look terrible, but at least they are clean.

The woman working there is very, very nice and speaks pretty good English. She can answer any questions about the area or give directions. You can leave your luggage until late at night on the day you check out, as we did. When we came to pick ours up, the woman was very nice and offered us tea and coffee for free. The breakfast is very good and includes coffee or tea, bread, cheese, ham, jam, and juice (about the best you'll get in hostels around Bulgaria).

Uri Fishelson

I took a double room to myself. It was like staying in a small private hotel rather than a hostel. Only drawback was the toilet/shower room, which isn't great, but it could certainly be worse. Lovely location, very warm and helpful proprietor -- who speaks fantastic English -- and lovely dog and cat, too! I would be happy to come back to this hostel, and in fact I may soon be doing just that.

Really enjoyed my stay here

The facilities are pretty average (especially the bathroom which was really grotty...the toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned for years). The family who run it are, however, really lovely and helpful and make one feel at home. What raises it from a 3 star to 4 star rating is the location. It's a short walk up the hill to the heart of the 'old town' and also very close to the other sights. I'd definitely stay here again if I was back in Plovdiv.



Raisky Kat Hostel is conveniently located in the historical Old Town of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The hostel is in a very quiet, peaceful and safe area of the city and is surrounded by gift shops, restaurants, cafes, museums, the Roman amphitheatre and ruins, and a fruit market.

The Hostel has five rooms with eleven beds in total, four of the rooms have two twin beds each and the fifth has three beds and functions as a mixed dorm. One of the bedrooms has a double bed with a private bath. There are two shared bathrooms for the remaining rooms.

There is a quiet and shaded courtyard to enjoy your breakfast and coffee. The hostel is family owned and operated and our staff is fluent in English. They can offer advice also on tours and excursions in the region.

Location and Contact


• Guest House Chelsea is not far from the central train station and bus depot.
• The easiest way to arrive at the guest house is to ask a taxi to take you to the address. You should use caution when taking a taxi that is parked outside the bus or train station as these usually overcharge their customers. It is best to hail a moving taxi at these locations. The absolute maximum you should pay from these locations to the hostel is 5 leva or 2.5 euro.
• Or, from the main rail station you can take bus numbers 2, 20, 26, get off at the Central Post Office in front of UBB Bank. Go along the street situated on the left side of the bank (Parchevich Street) and walk straight for 3 block (approximately 300m) and then turn left. Second building is Guest House Chelsea.
• Welcome!
