No locks and bed bugs

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 3, 2006

Got to the hostel late after making a reservation for a separate double room only to find the room couldn't be locked from the inside. The owner tried to make out this was normal for hostels. After staying at 2 pervious Sofia hostels in double rooms which both had locks on the inside of the doors, this was plainly wrong. Because of the time, we had no choice but to accept.
Had to get up early to get a plane but woke up with lots of bites from bed bugs.
The older lady who works there is very nice, and we had a good nights sleep - unlike other central Sofia hostels where we were kept awake at night by noisy traffic.
Other than that, the rooms are OK.

Unique Quality: Bed bugs and no locks on doors.

Directions: Just off Vitosha Boulevard - heading east along Solunska street. It's about the first of 2nd door on the right hand side.
