Art Hostel usually we spend our time in the garden

24 A, Angel Kantchev str.


Join us at the Art-Hostel for the unique experience that we create, now for almost 15 years, offering art events to travellers from all over the world and meeting local artists with travelling people.
We are people who like to mingle with others, so if you like to share your beer with locals, then we're the right place for you.
The Art-Hostel is situated in the very heart of the city offering access to main attractions and offers artistically decorated dorms and private rooms, all with breakfast; social bar-gallery space for music, literature, video, theater, performance events and the best hidden green inner yard you can find in Sofia. Wi-Fi everywhere.
What the “Guardian" says for us is: “Explore and enjoy a Parisian mentality and a Russian thirst for liquor in the centre of Sofia. Probably the best hostel in Europe"

Guest Access

Guest will have access to the best green inner yard in the city, to meeting lots of cool locals, to concerts, exhibitions, events, presenting Bulgarian culture. As well as fully equipped kitchen, bar-gallery, chill-our area with computers and free WiFi.

Interaction with Guests
