Everyone was so helpful and the location really is perfect!
Very nice. Great to have dinner and breakfast included. Great wifi.
Good hostel! Very comfortable, nice common area and helpful staff! Location is not perfect, but good enough.. walking distance from everything! The map they offer has a lot of valuable information, with all kind of hints!
Great hostel, great staff, best breakfast ever!
Hostel Mostel came highly recommended by several others, and after staying there for nearly a week-I see why. Right in the center of team, with a tremendously friendly and helpful staff, great common room, and awesome breakfast. The hostel was also constantly being cleaned. Even the little issues the seem to bedevil most hostels, such as slow/spotty wifi and inconsistent hot water in the showers we're non issues here. Just a great hostel.
BEST BREAKFAST, great common room with everyone enjoying tea and the huge lounges. We got in at 5am off a bus and were allowed to just sleep on the couches until the breakfast as our rooms weren't ready. Super cool staff and awesome vibe.
I'm not really sure what more you would want or need out of a hostel. Friendliest staff, free breakfast and dinner, day trips organised by the staff, great social atmosphere with a bar crawl leaving almost every night at ten, and then it becomes a quiet zone afterwards for those not interest in the noise. Everything you could ask for. Best hostel I've stayed at and would obviously recommend to anyone.
We had such a good time at the hostel! Met some lovely people, had great food and the staff were super helpful despite a transfer mix up! We really loved the rooms with the separate curtained beds!
Great place to stay, the also offer good day tours. BUT breakfast and dinner are NOT included in the price no matter what it says on the wensite. But its only 3 euros for dinner + brekkie.
Really enjoyed our stay here, the hostel is in a good location with all the facilities you could ask for. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the hostel has a good atmosphere and with breakfast and dinner included you can't go wrong, would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Sofia!
One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. There is breakfast and dinner included. The staff was very friendly, helpful and fluent in English.
Best hostel we've stayed at so far. Wish we had more time. Awesome common room and atmosphere
It was my 2nd stay at Hostel Mostel after 10 years. It was cleaner and more organized with friendlier staff than that time. Breakfast and dinner were basic but nice. It would be hard for other hostels in Sofia to beat Mostel.
Brilliant hostel. Great value. Very helpful staff. We stayed in apartment about 10 mins away it was nice and had wife but tiny bit annoying being away from main building. The dinner was good but only criticism is the room is quite small for the number of guests and it was hard to get somewhere to sit and eat.

Had too much fun at this hostel, while it has lots of guests, you can still enjoy cozyness and peace at this hostel, met great people here!
Faultless hostel. Everything about it is excellent.
The hostel is located at about 15-20' minutes walking from the main train station. The building itself is a refurbished 19 century hostel and looks wonderful. The staff is friendly and attentive, they kindly provide you with quick information about what to visit, where to dinner etc. Breakfast and dinner are included and the breakfast is buffet free like. The rooms are tidy with two lockers per person. Nice wifi connection, billar, clean baths. They also organize trips. 5/5 would repeat.
We feel it should be advertised on the website that the private rooms are a good 10minute walk up the road, which was not very comfortable late at night following chilling out in the main hostel. Showers in the private room area were not brilliant, with a lack of general cleanliness and water pressure being the main issues. Good location overall, and good excursions offered.
A bit of a hippie vibe. Staff was friendly. Showers and bathrooms adequate. 18 bed dorm had foam mattresses, bed linen old and too small. Not well organized on bed assignations, on the second night someone else had taken my bed and I had to use another bed. Good location and good value. Would probably stay again.
