Dear guests,

NOTE that the directions on how to find us
in the LONELY PLANET guidebooks are WRONG!
Please stick to the directions provided below.

From the Central railway station

- 25 minutes
Take 'Hristo Botev' (Христо Ботев) blvd, in 5 minutes you will cross a bridge at 'Slivnitsa' (Сливница) blvd.
Keep walking straight and stop at the intersection called 'Makedonia' square (площад Македония).
Landmark when you are there is a tall building on your left.
At the intersection turn right and you will see a 'Win Bet' casino and a pharmacy. Right after the pharmacy there is a small metal door with a Hostel Mostel sign on it. Ring the bell, we will open the door for you. Walk through the arcade and you will see our traditional building with a wooden terrace.

By public transport:
- 15 minutes ride.
First of all buy two tickets - 1.00 lev (0.50 Euro) each (one for you and one for your backpack) from the nearest newspaper kiosk. Then take a tram No 1, 6 or 7, direction to 'Makedonia' square stop - the 4th (Ploshtad Makedonia spelled in Bulgarian). Look for 'Win Bet' casino and a 'Post Bank' office there. We are just next to it.

By taxi:
Don't take a taxi from the train station! You can find cheap taxis in front of the MAIN entrance of the bus station only - it is 100m to the left from the train station.
Distance to the hostel: 1.5 km, an honest fare is 0,80 Lv/km (written on a sticker on the cab window). The total fare should be no more than 5 leva.

From the International bus station

It is just next to the Central railway station so use the directions given above.

Avoid the scam!
NEVER accept taxi offers at the train or bus station!

From the Airport
Too far & boring, not recommended!

You can use our pick-up service. Write us an e-mail with your flight number together with the expected arrival time.
For the pick-up we charge additional 20 Leva (10 Euro) during the day and 30 Leva (15 Euro) between 22:00 and 07:00.

By public transport: (20-25 minutes ride plus 15 - 20 minutes walking)
Buy two tickets from the newspaper kiosk in the departures terminal or from the bus driver (although sometimes the driver has no tickets) - 1.00 lev (0.50 Euro) each (one for you and one for your backpack).
Take bus No 84 to the city center. Punch the 2 tickets.
Get off the bus when you see Starbucks Coffee on your left and a park to your right.
Getting off the bus take 'General Gurko' str and walk straight until you see McDonalds on your left and a building with lions on the right. Keep going and you will reach Makedonia Square.
Look for 'Caesar' casino and a 'Post Bank' office there. We are just next to it.

By taxi:
To avoid scam go to the desk of 'OK Taxi' at the terminal and request a cab to our address. The distance to the hostel is15 km, honest fare is around 15 Lv (7.5 euro).
