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


The directions to the hostel from the airport is not given too clearly. One should follow the Gen.Gurko street all the way till McD, pass the courthouse (lion building) and further on till a big crossroad. Get across to the other side and one would see a betting club and the hostel is right next to it. All in all, my stay there is one of my best hostel experience. The atmosphere was super! Got to talk to many people during meal times. Love the common room/dining area! Trips offered are awesome!


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.
