Welcome to Canape Connection Guest House!
Retrospectively, the three of us - Nadia, Nadia and Ivo - sharing the
same passion for traveling, photography and design, started a hostel in
2009. Back then we created the hostel we always wished to stay at when
traveling. Over the years we gathered life and professional experience
and felt the natural urge for a change. The hostel has always been a
reflection of ourselves and now, as we evolved, the new concept of our
place matches our new path.

You can easily get here from the Airport, Central Bus and Railway Stations.

From the Central Bus and Railway station:

By metro:
Take the subway direction Lozenets (Лозенец) and get off at NDK station. Exit on Vitosha Blvd. Walk 4 blocks north on Vitosha Blvd until you get to William Gladstone Street. (Уилиям Гладстон). Turn left and after the second block you'll see the sign 12A and Canape Connection on the left hand side.

By tram:
Buy two tickets - 1.60 BGN each (one for you and one for your backpack) from the driver or from a newspaper stand and when you get on the tram/bus immediately punch the two tickets. If you don't punch them, they are not valid.
If you are group of 3 or 4 people, it is about the same price to take a taxi. Please mind that the price per km should be less than 1.00 BGN (around 0.77-0.88 BGN). This can be easily seen at the stickers on the car windows. We recommend checking that before you jump into the taxi because there are a lot of fake taxis around the airport and the stations that charge a lot more.

From the Airport:

By metro:
Catch the Underground (Metro, Subway) and get off at 'Serdika'. Exit on 'Kniaz Boris Str.' which is when turn right after you get off the train. Take the left exit on Kniaz Boris and go straight to William Gladstone Street where you turn right and in 20 meters is number 12A and our guest house. You can also switch metro lines on Serdika station to NDK (direction Lozenec) for 1 stop.
The Metro station is on Terminal 2, so if you land on Terminal 1 you need to take either the Shuttle or the bus 84 to Terminal 2.

By bus:
If you catch bus number 84 (from Terminal 1 and 2) get off at the last stop, named BSFS (БСФС). Then cross the cross road towards Starbucks and walk 3 blocks to Patriarh Evtimii Square (known as Popa) and catch a tram number 12 or 18 for 3 stops, get off at Macedonia Square (Площад Македония). Then if you are facing the Square turn left and walk 4 blocks on Hristo Botev Boulevard (бул. Христо Ботев) and then turn left at the 4th street. This is the William Gladstone Street (ул. Уилям Гладстон). Go 1 block further - you will see the number 12A on the right-hand side.

Mind that after opening of the new Metro line from the Airport taxi drivers have less work so they seem to go around the town pretending finding the address. So the meter runs and runs and the price go higher. The regular price to the guest house is around 15 BGN. So keep an eye on the meter.

Located Near

Canape Connection is two minutes away from the main pedestrian and shopping street. The area is very central and at the same time our house is located in a nice quiet street. Around the corner there are: a tea house, a bakery and vegetarian restaurant, as well some galleries, Bulgarian pottery and craft shops. There is a new independent cinema just next door, where alternative productions are screened in original version.
