About us and Veliko Tarnovo:
A stop station for backpackers, adventure seekers and random travelers.
The hostel is designed to provide the appropriate environment for travelogue exchange and to offer alternative travel routes. The purpose of our attempt to share travelogues in a multi-national ambience is to broaden horizons and enrich both the novice and the experienced traveler. This initiative is designed to gather together contributors to a new vision of alternative travel and as such it will constantly be in progress.
Hikers Hostel is located in Veliko Tarnovo, a town once proclaimed the capital of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom and for many years, it has been a centre of political and spiritual life.
Veliko Tarnovo of today has managed to preserve the atmosphere of this glorious period almost intact. On account of its cultural and artisan heritage and its mid-point in Bulgaria, the town is the perfect home for Hikers Hostel. It is designed to provide the appropriate environment for travelogue exchange and to offer alternative travel routes.
Hikers Hostel is positioned in the most attractive but peaceful area of Veliko Tarnovo - the Samovodene Marketplace, which is dedicated to Bulgarian arts and crafts and is within walking distance of the town centre.
The two-storey hostel is in the vicinity of this unique street and offers a wondrous panoramic view towards the three historic hills - Tzarevetz, Trapezitza, and Sveta Gora.
It's the 'first hostel' in town with the most experienced multinational stuff. We enjoy making BBQ parties in our yard/garden and we have learned that our guest love it too. And you are welcome. Join us!
Feel warm and welcome while exploring the night life with us in this young student town. We would love to take you for a 'pub crawl' and show you what is good and what to avoid in the night.
We also offer you the opportunity to explore the beautiful mountainous area around Veliko Tarnovo.
Day trips to numerous eco-trails, monasteries, ethnographical complexes, combined with pick-nick in the shadows at the many waterfalls on the way.
Please Note: Food and pick up service are less than 9 Euros, but are not included in the price.
