Sounds good ๐Ÿ˜ are you staying at Avalon?
Nah I have a flat further up.
I think Avalon's all booked up at the moment
a friend of mine cancelled a few weeks back and I don't know for sure if they've filled the slot but I'd assume so by now
I wanted coliving for the first month in an effort to make friends for Christmas and New Yearโ€™s Day plans ๐Ÿ˜›

I have Avalon first month, then Jan 7 I move to a hotel near the lift for 6 weeks.
And yeah Avalon was full from Jan 7, hence the move
ah makes sense
I prefer to stay in old town in the winter, a ten minute walk at 1am from the coworking bansko lounge is too long and too cold for me
whereas to the ski lift I'm all bundled up and ready to spend all day outside, so I don't mind an extra few minutes there
my general rule is to stay within stumbling distance of wherever you plan on spending your evenings
Absolutely, Iโ€™m coworking at altspace so I think Avalon works out alright
Altspace always looked great when I walked by ๐Ÿ‘Œ
I hope so ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™ve heard mixed reviews about the main place so went with the underdog ๐Ÿ˜›

I'm staying at Avalon at the moment (Bansko Coliving) and they have been fully booked all season for months.

I booked my stay months ago and I'm having to leave at the start of Jan and move in to a hotel because the coliving was already booked for Jan to March far, far ahead.

Hey everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹
Anyone got a good taxi personโ€™s contact details to get from Sofia to Bansko? Or, does everyone just bus?
zot24 1mo
๐Ÿ‘‹ hey people!

I'm arriving ๐Ÿ›ฌ late at night to Sofia Airport 2am

And was wondering

โ€ข If there is any kind of cheap transport to the city working late at night
โ€ข If there is any recommendations on where to stay close by that is not too expensive hand_with_index_finger_and_thumb_crossed

Traveling to bansko for the first time and I booked a ride with a company I found on google called traventuria. They have airport to bansko rides. Hope they are reliable :)
The bus is easy (10โ‚ฌ) if it works with your schedule, otherwise I use Vladimir Mladenov, usually around 70โ‚ฌ unless prices have changed, and he'll take you from the airport direct to bansko

The cheapest transport is the subway (80 cents) but you will need to wait until 4:30AM.

Taxi from the airport to the Center may cost you around 10EUR
itsankoff 1mo
As for stays I think Airbnb and Booking are the best options to search
Thanks both of you! โค๏ธ

Nice on the price I wasn't sure how expensive it could be, thanks for the tip ๐Ÿ‘

Hey nomads! Who is in Bansko and down for a meetup? Any "nomad spots" around?

Also, did anyone checkout the Coworking Bankso? If so, was it worth it?

Cheers ๐Ÿป
Regarding lodging in Bansko I could not find a reasonably priced, available, Airbnb for winter season. So, for those looking, my hack was to stay in Razlog for <500 euros per month, then rent a car for 150 euros per month. Bansko is a five min drive and I have a bigger place, plus freedom of transportation.
Hey ekdovzxnodpyvmzh , thanks for the tip. Where did u find the agencyโ€™s rentin for this price (150โ‚ฌ/month)? I am currently in Bansko and would be interested!
In case anyone finds this later, couldn't find anywhere but did find a reasonably priced apartment in the Green Life Resort for 600 euros. More family vibes but reasonably priced and good internet
I prefer altspace but they're full until Feb.

You need to get into one of the coworking spaces to find the nomads. As soon as you join coworking or altspace you'll be added to their respective whatsapp groups and then there's events all the time.
There's also a nomad lunch every monday (<@U021ZUXBEEP> tagging you so that you see this fast, as it's tomorrow), that's open to everyone and not affiliated with a specific coworking space -
Hey faucqngoqtqmnott I booked this knowing I'd be flying into Sofia. So, I was able to pick up from "Top Rent-a-Car" at the airport. They also have another location in Plovdiv. Made the booking on Kayak. Might be tricky now that you're already in Bansko. But, I'm heading back up to Sofia on Thursday afternoon if you wanted to try it and needed a ride back.
Thank you for coming through, UB02C7KMF! Already RSVPd to the lunch and checked out the Altspace website. They immediately look a bit better than Coworking Bansko.
Thanks for the info and for your proposition! I ll look there then! It is not urgent, I may plan to rent it for february or so. See u soon in Bansko

For 4 months it maybe overkill to use airbnb. You can try contact the host over the chat and negotiate long term stay. Usually you can get big discount if you play the card that they wonโ€™t need to do maintenance that often as well as they will have full booked calendar instead of short term stays. But I donโ€™t see how it can go below at least 1K/month
itsankoff 17d
If you search for cheaper option you can try agency, but then they usually require 1 month rent as fee as well as 1 month rent of deposit and then you may not be able to get your deposit back
itsankoff 17d
The best option I can see is to look into facebook groups for property without agencies and negotiate mid term rent skipping the agency fee
itsankoff 17d
And you can still search here, but 99% of the time it will be agency picking up the phone
Yup I love it there ๐Ÿ™‚ I was in Bansko in December but decided to go to Greece for 6 weeks while I wait for the snow to get a bit better. Will be back in Bansko (and Altspace) Feb 11 and staying 2 months ๐Ÿ‘
Itโ€™s the air quality
drpancake 16d
Iโ€™m told they burn a lot of coal for heating so it gets smoggy

It's the same in Sofia in the cold months as well. Sofia is surrounded by mountains, so the air smells like burning wood in the winter.
Itโ€™s totally fine up closer to the gondola. But when you get too low down it is horrendous
The center is ๐Ÿคฎ
drpancake 16d
Sam Iโ€™m starting to suspect that you are not a big fan of Bansko old town ๐Ÿ˜‚
I love the old town
So pretty
I love it in the summer! Itโ€™s just the air quality
Gondola area is just touristy
I really canโ€™t handle the smoke. Itโ€™s like being in a Smokey bar with no air ventilation. On bad days itโ€™s worse than some of the most polluted cities in the world
I go into the old town almost daily but living there is not something Iโ€™d personally recommend because of this massive negative. Air quality is super important to me
