A stop-station for backpackers, adventure seekers and random travellers, 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 traveller. 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, the medieval capital of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom and the town with the most dramatic setting in the country. Perched on several hills and the Yantra river meandering through, it seems the perfect home for Hikers Hostel.
A splendid opportunity is to enjoy the stunning spectacle ‘Sound and Light’ either from your room or the balcony, overlooking the fortress. By means of audio-visual effects it represents episodes of the 7000-year history of Bulgaria, enlivens the fortress of Tsarevets, thus magically carrying you back to centuries gone by.
The two-storey hostel is positioned in a very quiet neighbourhood, in the vicinity of the most attractive area of Veliko Tarnovo – the Samovodene Marketplace which is dedicated to Bulgarian arts and crafts and is within walking distance of the town centre. Towering above the terrace-like quarter, with a wondrous panoramic view of the three historic hills – Tsarevets, Trapezitsa and Sveta Gora, Hikers Hostel is the only place in town where you feel like staying forever.
