There are many young people who are passionate about traveling all over the world and most of them prefer to stay in a hostel rather than staying in a regular hotel. The advantages of the hostels in Sofia are obvious. First it’s the price, as hostels are budget oriented they offer a lot cheaper accommodation and for the young people that do not have high incomes this type of service is a lot more affordable. The second advantage is that the hostels are social place where you meet other people like you. In a hostel people tend to spend the evenings together or guests may go out for a drink together and they become friends. It is not uncommon that people, who met in a hostel, exchange their addresses and they visit each other in their home countries.
