Hikers Hostel Reviews

Description

Hikers Hostel is located in Plovdiv – the cultural capital of Bulgaria. The city lies among seven hills and is therefore called "The town of the Hills". Its 8000-year-old history has contributed to its present authenticity and beauty. Many cultures have left a trace behind and the mixture of Roman, Trace, Ottoman and traditional Bulgarian architectures add up to the romantic spirit of the town.
Hikers Hostel is located in the beautiful Ancient Town of Plovdiv, which is adjacent to the city centre, on Nebet Tepe (Nebet Hill). The two-storey building represents the typical architecture from the Revival Period of the 19th century in Bulgaria. Although situated on the main cobblestone-paved street in the Ancient Town, the area is peaceful and is the perfect home for the numerous arts and crafts houses. The hostel is surrounded by many museums, arts galleries, arts schools, churches and museum-houses from the Revival Period that once belonged to renowned Bulgarian artists. About 200 metres away from Hikers Hostel is the famous Ancient Amphitheatre, built by the Romans. It is by far the best preserved artifact and along with the incredible acoustics, which needs no additional sound system, the Ancient Amphitheatre is the perfect spot for symphonic orchestras, concerts and theatre plays.
Hikers Hostel is a place that offers the opportunity to anyone to fully appreciate Plovdiv by the merits of its unique atmosphere. The pleasure of staying at Hikers Hostel will make you want to stay longer than planned.
