We walked into this hostel and immediately felt calmer and more at ease. After a long train ride it was like paradise. The staff was super friendly and the showers and bathrooms were nice. We would definitely stay again!

Hostel Mostel is recommendable! Although it is situated at the bottom of a hill which makes the climb up to the main street rather exhausting, especially if you go up the hill many times a day, the hostel is still worth staying at. Veliko Tarnovo is a beautiful city and should not be overseen

Thank U: Veliko Tarnovo is an amazing city... but with the staff's help and suggestions our stay there was even better! One of the most beautiful hostels I've ever been to... and the pancakes with Bulgarian cheese and rose jam were an A+!

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. A great place to base yourself for a few days. Definitely sign up for the UFO tour. You get a buffet breakfast and dinner included every morning and night. The staff are super helpful and really friendly. They make it a great social hostel. Won't say it's the best hostel in Bulgaria (haven't stayed at the all), but it's certainly setting the standard.

Considering the reputation we were rather disappointed with hostel mostel. There were too few showers and toilets leading to long queues. The wifi was sporadic at best, and the atmosphere was poor. Additionally, unless you have paid for the more expensive beds you have to pay extra for breakfast and the evening meal. This clause is completely absent from Hostel Mostel's own advertising at seems at odds with their claim of "no hidden fees". In summary cheap but dull and with few facilities.

I hadn't noticed all of the Best Hostel in Bulgaria Awards on the wall behind the reception desk when I checked in. But I saw them when I checked out....and it was easy to understand why they had been won. The food was good. The reconstructed house was bright cheery and in excellent condition. But far and away the best part about Hostel Mostel is the staff. Randy and Natalya were extraordinarily friendly and helpful. They definitely made my stay a wonderful experience. Thanks guys!

Really nice hostel located close to the main attractions. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the common room and evening dinner are a wonderful way to meet fellow travellers. Veliko Tarnovo is beautiful and this hostel is the perfect base to explore the town and its surroundings.

Good place to stay. Very clean and cozy. The dinner is an added bonus, plus the town has a good bit of charm. Make you ask about the train station pick up (although they charge). I found it a bit confusing to get to the hostel. Only wished they had better instructions. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay.

The hostel staff were very friendly. The free pick up service from the train station was very much appreciated. The room we stayed in was a double private, it was very secure and has a very nice shower however the bed sheets were itchy blankets and not actual duvets. This was the only bad point for the hostel. The wifi is fast and the free food was what you would expect from a hostel. Overall a very good hostel set in beautiful surroundings.

Good place to stay with a nice common room and kitchen facilities. Located in a walking distance from the old town. I would recommend it.

Hostel Mostel was a pleasant surprise since we were not planning to go there. Randy checked us in and was very helpful and friendly. Dinner(passable) and breakfast(good) are included in the room price.The only negative comment we have concerns the beds which were springy(ouch) but overall,we had a very pleasant stay.
