A Country of Superb Variations
Hostels in Bulgaria
There’s a growing number of backpacker hostels in Bulgaria, although the majority are still to be found in Sofia, with a handful in other major cities and tourist destinations such as Plovdiv, Varna and Veliko Tarnovo. Staying at a hostel in Bulgaria is an inexpensive and sociable way to explore the country, and prices are often remarkably cheap, with a bed in a dorm room costing around 10-12 Euros, and a double room, where available, going for about 30 Euros. In some hostels, you can bed down on the floor with your own sleeping bag for around 5 Euros. A basic breakfast is usually included in the price, and guests often have use of a communal kitchen and laundry room. Many Bulgarian hostels will also arrange free pick-ups from bus and train stations, and some even arrange day-trips and activities for their guests, or have bicycles for hire.
