Welcome to our hostel

Canapé Connection Hostel where TRAVELLERS feel at home, understood and inspired for new explorations.

How we do it:
- We consider and welcome GUESTS at the hostel, NOT CLIENTS.
- We designed and build extra wide beds with curtains, so our guests could have a QUALITY REST.
- We share our own travel experience with guests and try to arrange the best "value for money" while in Bulgaria.
- Just ask the receptionists WHAT TO DO IN SOFIA and you'll have a plan for a week ahead :) And if we are not too tired we may take you out with us after work.
- Home made traditional and tasty breakfast different every morning, so you to have another reason to extend your stay here :)
- Guests prefer to walk with no shoes inside because they feel at home enjoying the clean floor :)
**** Canapé Connection is recommended on TRIPADVISOR

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.

No free parking available in the hostel 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.
