Oh goodness. There is really nothing bad about the hostel. The staff are amazing, friendly and accommodating. The hostel was clean, comfortable, and safe. The free dinner and breakfast was satisfying, filling, and yummy. You should definitely stay here. You will not be disappointed!!!!!


The hostel was close to the main sight-seeings in Sofia; the rooms were clean and they met my expectations; the hostel's staff were very friendly and always had a good tip to give you in order to make your stay easier and comfortable; I would recommend this hostel to my friends! Best wishes!


The staff is great! Be advised: the 16 bed room is in the attic. If you are in it during the winter, it gets really cold. Also, it's easy to hear people talking in the courtyard, but the staff does a good job quieting people down around 10:30. Despite those issues, it's still a phenomenal deal at only €6.50 a night for a bed. Also, if you aren't used to Bulgaria, I would recommend staying in a smaller room that includes food because you have to search a little bit for cheap restaurants in Sofia.


My partner and I were so impressed Hostel Mostel Sofia! The staff were incredibly warm, helpful, and accommodating to us on many occasions. The value is great, with a decent free dinner and a great free breakfast included in an already-low price. We stayed in a wonderful private room: large, sunny, comfortable. My only note for single travellers: there are no lockers in the rooms and their second remote building down the street from the main building doesn't have any staff present on site.


really cool place, service and prices!!i recomend it!

Super-amazing hostel with super-friendly staff! The rooms are big and comfortable, the free breakfast and the free dinner are really nice, but the very exceptional part is the staff, always there to help you and entertain you. You definitely have to stay here at least once in your lifetime! You won't regret!


Great place. The staff is nice and warm, which provides a good athmosphere in the common room. You just wanna stay there and talk with everybody. I'd recommend it to anyone going in Sofia :)


Love!!! Such a good breakfast incredibly helpful really good experienxe. Same with the one in veliko tarnov


Great hostel, the staff are so helpful, the location is great and breakfast and dinner are included in the price.


This hostel was great, it offer huge added value for backpackers and everybody is ready to help you. Great think for those on budget is breakfast and dinner included in price. Same time there is Pub crawl organized for hosts for free and some paid trips.


The best hostel I have ever stayed in.

I stayed in Hostel Mostel with my friend for 3 nights and I have no complains at all. Just small details as for example that some rooms are not in the proper hostel but they're quite close to it. The personal is great, always ready to give a hand. Totally recomended!!


Very huge and cozy common room!!! Room and shower room is very clean :) But at the night, it was cold in the room.. Staff is kind and friendly:) Definitely it is very cheap!!!!


Was all around a good hostel. Location a little bit from the action but only a few minutes. Wifi was good. Beds were nice. Rooms were fairly cold in winter. I would stay again


Best hostel I have ever stayed: great structure (including free pool table), great location, perfectly clean, has an extremely nice staff and, besides everything, has free dinner (with bear!) and breakfast, which is the best hostel breakfast I had. The dinner is a great time to get to know other guests. Had an excellent pub-crawl and trip to Risla Monastery, both organized by the hostel. This hostel would be one of the main reasons to go back to Sophia. Don't think twice before choosing it.


This is like the best hostel I have ever stayed. The stuffs are very kind, and the guests are also great. The flat room is nice enough to be easy to talk with other guests and stuffs. I wanna go to Bulgaria again in order to stay this hostel. Thank you for nice time.


Very well located, walking distance from everyhing, and the staff is very nice also. The rooms are ok, and the bathrooms are enough but outside. It has a great breakfast, however it is ridiculously expensive in comparision with the city prices.


Awesome staff, toilets were somewhat cold though.


Great hostel. Loved my stay there! Everything was just perfect!


This hostel was once a coaching stop for travellerers during the 19th century and it's nice to see the legacy has continued. Having said that it is also 19th century in style; dorms are similar to motel rooms and don't have the best insulation for keeping out the cold. No deposit required for the key. Breakfast is not included in the price of accommodation (as advertised) however it is included in a deal including a tea time snack both for 6 LEV. All attractions and tours explained. Clean linen.
