Welcome to our hostel

Early 2016 Canape Connection transformed from a hostel into a guest house - the best alternative for the travelers who travel а lot but hide from the craziness of the youth hostels and prefer to share the moments with the beloved one/s.

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.

Welcome to our freshly renovated house with self designed hand-made beds. We now offer private rooms suitable for solo travelers or couples, families and friends.

We believe that you, as our guest, will experience and enjoy:

- Uniqueness and personal touch in the room design.
- Solid wide wooden beds with queen- or king-size mattresses.
- Quite backyard for recreation or socializing.
- Central location in a vivid neighborhood, well connected to public transport, close to landmarks and artistic spots.
- Quality and healthy cuisine in the nearby traditional, bio-organic, vegetarian or ayurvedic restaurants or tea houses.
- Fast and reliable WiFi connection.
- Tips, suggestions and assistance with everything you need during your stay.

You arrive as a guest but you definitely leave as a friend!
Welcome to Canape Connection Guest House!

Un hostal ameno. Muy bien ubicado en el centro de la ciudad, restaurantes vegetarianos alrededor y casas de cambio cerca. Un poco incomodo los baños y la cocina.

Los baños muy incomodos y la cocina queda en el sotano debajo del baño asi que uno escucha el caño de aguas residuales.

Noisy top bunkbeds, the bedroom portable heater is a safety hazard and an accident waiting to happen, the showers/toilets on ground floor could be cleaner. Otherwise it is friendly and cosy, the breakfast made up for the lack of room to eat it in, loved the home made pancakes and that there was a buffet to choose from like in a hotel

Ich war innerhalb eines Monats dreimal vor Ort und es hat jedesmal alles funktioniert, dabei habe ich auch alle drei Möglichkeiten der Übernachtung kennengelernt (großer Schlafsaal, kleinerer Vierer-Raum und Einzelzimmer). Auch das Frühstück war Okay. Für meinen Buben ist man extra in den Supermarkt gegangen und hat Cornflakes gekauft. Die Lage ist auch super (nahe dem Vitosha Boulevard) und sehr ruhig.

Getting to us

Getting to us

Catch bus number 84 (from Terminal 1 and 2) and get off at the last stop then take trolleybus 2 stops then walk 6 blocks.
From the Central Railway and Bus Station: Take the subway direction Lozenets and get off at NDK station. Then walk 6 blocks.
There are 2 metro stations near the hostel.
There are 2 metro stations near the guest house. The nearest is NDK (НДК). See the directions how to get here from the main Bus and Railway stations.
Alternate Transport
We offer pick-up service from the Airport or the Central Railway and Bus Station against fee. In case you are interested please contact us via email.
No free parking available at the guest house but there is paid and secured parking just 2 blocks away.
From the Central Railway and Bus Station: 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 Str. (Уилиям Гладстон). Turn left and after the second block you'll see the sign 12A and Canape Connection on the left hand side On-ground transportation from the Bus Station: Take tram # 6 or 7 and get off at the 4th stop - Macedonia squere (площад Македония). Go 1 block the same direction at the same side of the Boulevard and cross it at the first zebra crossing. Turn left on the William Gladstone Street (ул.Уилиям Гладстон). Go 1 block further. You will see the number 12A on the right-hand side. * Buy two tickets – 1.00 BGN each (one for you and one for your backpack) from the driver and when you get on immediately punch the two tickets. ** If you are a group of 3 or 4 people it is cheaper or the same price to take a taxi. Please mind that the price per km should be less than 1.00 BGN (around 0.60-0.70 BGN). This can be easily seen at the stickers on the car windows. We recommend checking that before you jump into the taxi since there are fake taxis around the airport and the stations that charge a lot more.
