The location is great, just 5 minute walk to town. Staff are super helpful and provide lots of information on what to do and see. Worth noting that the private rooms are in a separate building about 5-10 min walk away, not a problem at all though, can still go for breakfast/dinner in the main hostel and meet people then. Very chilled vibe but has everything you need. Would recommend for people wanting to meet other travellers or those on a budget as dinner is also included.

Our stay at Hostel Mostel was perfect. The location can't be more central. We paid 6 leva for a very good breakfast (waffles, fruit, vegetables, joghurt, cheese, salami, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, toast, marmelade, juice, tee, hot chocolate, coffee) & nice dinner (1 beer, salads and we could choose between 3 dishes). The staff was verz friendly, answered all our questions and had some good advice for our stay. They also offer some activities like daytrips and a pub crawl.

Had an amazing stay at Hostel Mostel. Loved that breakfast and dinner was included. Great atmosphere - organised pub crawl, comfy area and pool table. If you are in a private room, these are about 10 minute walk away. Got lost trying to find the hostel - it's next to a bank and casino.

Great hostel. Common room is huge and has lots of seating areas. Staff were excellent and I appreciated having a cab arranged for me when I left for the airport. Location is very central to the city centre and close to a supermarket.

I stayed at Hostel Mostel only one night for my flight was the very next morning. I had read about that place from other travelers' blogs and I couldn't help but stay there and see it for myself. Excellent atmosphere, staff interaction and overall experience. The ensuite room that I stayed in is with a shower and a sink only, the restroom is a few meters outside the room. I am a minimalist traveler so the locker in the room was enough for my 19 liter backpack. Highly recommended!

Staff are willing to help. The Free dinner is tasty and the breakfast are nice. However, My dorm is on the first floor, At the first night in my stay, the music in the Common room which is on the groud floor are so loud. I know its Friday night but it is really anniying.

Great hostel, awesome common area and really easy to meet people. The free breakfast is the best I've ever had, they have freshly made waffles, scrambled eggs and fresh plums and nectarines as well as all the normal cerals, ham, cheese bread etc. There is free dinner every night which wasn't the best but hey it's free so you can't really complain and the beds weren't that comfortable but bathrooms and showers were great. Would stay here again for sure.

The best value for money hostel I ever stayed. Provide good breakfast that can rival 3 star hotels . Dinner is an additional service, couldn't ask for more. The main lobby furniture looks a bit dirty but I couldn't have asked foe more wiry this price. Excellent customer service to explain sights to me

I stayed in the private room right next to the hostel. It was a huge apartment with 2 bedrooms and a balcony right over Macedonia Square. Breakfast was surprisingly hearty but I wasn't there for dinner. How can you go wrong with two free meals a day. Staff was incredibly helpful, even lugging our suitcases up the stairs to show us our private room They offered many great tips. It's kind of hard to find because the sign is tiny and the front entrance might scare you away but get past it.
