Internet Hostel is situated on Alabin Street, just some meters away from one of the main shopping streets of Sofia -- Vitosha Boulevard. But this is the only and the best thing about it.
It is situated on the fourth floor of the building, not on the second as it written in the information about it and there is no lift. Also, it is not really a hostel -- it is more like a home-stay accommodation. There is no place for the reception at all -- it is the same place where they serve breakfast. The stairs leading to the top of the building are really terrible -- blue, dirty, with different graffiti and notes on the walls.
We booked the hostel almost three weeks before arriving. When we arrived, the first shock was the staircase. There are no signs of the Internet Hostel on the second floor and only upon climbing to the top did we find it. When we tried to open the door, the handle of the door came off in my friend's hand! The door suddenly opened and we were told there were no rooms available! We had a conversation with the both of the hostel managers for about two hours. The manager of the hostel is very rude, unpleasant, and unkind, but the staff is great -- very helpful and nice! They offered another hostel, which was the same (home-stay accommodation on the fourth floor of a five-storied building without a lift). We stayed here.
The room is nice, clean, and newly renovated. They give you clean linen and towels. It is not very noisy there, but it could be, because outside your room there is a space for watching TV, eating, and smoking. The bathroom is in the hall. The hostel has free internet. For breakfast you can get some toast with sausages, cheese and tomatoes and jam, and coffee and tea.
If you want to save money, you can stay here. But remember, it is really not a hostel, but a home-stay accommodation.
