The hostel is bad located, in a zone not far from the city centre, but not in a good location. The timetables were right. They don't help you at all, it is like a real job. I felt uncomfortable, and they didn't do anything, nor a simple help/solution/alternative, or just talking. Nothing. The organization needs to be improved, as well as English.

You are a mean person. You left without warning and did not return, set up other volunteers. Then he asked me to give you 5 stars and you sent me a text for a review.

I had a great time in Sofia.
Nice atmosphere in the hostel, you will find 80% of guest are from Bulgaria so you’ll learn more about this culture.

Not so many things to do, so I had enough time to explore the country and to visit different places in Sofia.

Nice experience, i hope I’ll come back one day 🤝🏼
