    Veliko's best view


    Hiker’s hostel is situated on a hill with panoramic views over the three historic hills and over looking the fortress. There is a light show at dusk but there is no exact time when this starts. Only 5-10 minute walk to the town. At the end of an evening the walk home is dark and you have to watch your footing on the cobbles, however the way is lit by fire-flies!

    Bedding in provided and the rooms are clean, in the shower you have to watch out for the spiders and make sure you shut the window or else you will have all the other creepy crawlies showering with you. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is chilled.

    Directions: From Yug bus station in Veliko Tarnovo
    Walk up the main street into town, walk east along Vassil Levski Blvd. Follow the cobblestone street on the left to a small square. Take the right hand street then the left up hill!

    hostel with great view


    Having stayed at Hostel Mostel in Sofia, I saw a sign that said 10 percent off Hikers Hostel if they booked it for you there. I hadn't actually considered Veliko Turnovo, but everyone I met said it was a place not to be missed.

    Anyway, the hostel is poised on a hill in the Old Town.

    We had a double room which was comfortable. There is that one double room, and room for maybe 10 other guests. While it was a great place to stay, with mostly a nice staff, and a great vibe, there was a problem with the water. While it may not have been their fault (i.e., water was out all over the Old Town, and crews were working on the pipes), they were less than upfront about the frequency of that problem. It happened often, it turned out, since as soon as the water WAS on, the staff would fill up large buckets of water, to use to flush the toilet, etc. Had the staff informed people of this problem, everyone would have been much happier. It was just dishonest.

    Unique Quality: This place has the most fantastic view of the fortress. And, you can see the light show (when there is one), from the little porch on the second floor.

    Again, there was a great, warm feeling about staying there, from the other travelers and the staff, and free internet access.
