Great common area where breakfast and dinner are eaten. Good location, close to everything but really quiet at night. There was no air con so it was a little hot at night. Sometimes I had to wait a while for a shower. Great day trips organised by the hostel.
Everything was great, would def stay here again. Awesome staff, location
Really nice place, I wish I stayed there more!

Rooms on the first floor are very noisy as they all face outside to where people often hang out late and noise curfews aren't really enforced - not so good if you want some sleep. Also some odd people working there. That said, it's a good social hostel which isn't too far from the centre and is good value for money.
Helpful staff with good hints for Sofia. No support in further bookings in other hostels in Bulgaria. (only through email)

excellent stay at hostel, the new fans in the room are great.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Art Hostel. Phillipe and his family were very welcoming and friendly and we were always provided with a healthy breakfast and variety of choices. As transport here can be a little unreliable Phillipe helped us to sort out our connecting buses and was always willing to go out of his way to ensure we were happy. The hostel has a really relaxed vibe compared to some of the others and has the coolest stairs. The hostel is located close to town and beaches.
Absolutely brilliant. Breakfast and dinner included; both tasty and fresh- the dinner was even vegetarian friendly. A bit of a trek from the train station, but not to bad, and close to the centre. We were allowed to store our luggage during the day, and also have dinner at the hostel again (for 4 lev) before our night train. Fantastic experience.
Lovely, helpful staff and a good location. Our room was in a different building, about a 5-7 minute walk from the main hostel. This was a bit annoying to be honest, made us feel unmotivated to get to breakfast by 10am and also made it hard to meet people. Other than that, was a nice, comfortable room.
Brilliant hostel. Breakfast and dinner included was amazing. Great advice from staff. Highly highly recommend
My only complaint is that the bed was a bit uncomfortable - springs were poking me all night. Otherwise, I had a great stay at the hostel. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was great. Facilities and services included in the fee were great too. Thanks a lot!

The best hostel we had ever stayed at. Free dinner and breakfast: really good! Staff really polite and nice, and always trying to help! Great atmosphere! Very good when you travel in group and better when you are by yourself, because you can really meet people from all over the world. They also have some activities like tours and pub crawl. I recomend!
This Hostel Mostel is quite unlike the one in Veliko Tarnovo, which is better in my opinion. This one in Sofia a lot bigger and not very cozy. It has more of a party hostel atmosphere and the common room is a little bit institutional feeling. Another negative is that you have to walk outside to get to the bathrooms, which were never very clean and always had water all over the floor, even in the non-shower rooms. The location is okay, about 5-10 min from the center and 30 minutes to the station.
Bonus points for free breakfast AND dinner. The staff did everything they could to ensure you had an awesome time with loads of information, a free pub crawl and even a free caving adventure. Looking forward to staying there again :)
Only spent one night here but my brother and I loved it, one of the best places we've stayed during our 3 week interrailing holiday. The hostel is not quite central and the staff are really good, breakfast not included but it was something like £2 each if you wanted something which was good. The hostel organised a FREE caving trip in the day, the only thing we had to pay for was the train and some lunch. Seriously recommend this hostel to anyone young and travelling it was awesome.
One of the best hostels i have stayed at in 2.5 months of traveling. Friendly staff, great value, cool trips (the free caving trip was incredible), awesome breakfast, good location. Changed our stay from 3 to 7 to 9 days it was that good. Has everything: wall sockets, lockers, clean bathrooms and showers, etc.
Breakfast and dinner were a good way of meeting other guests which created a good atmosphere.
Super feeling, super staff, location in centre of Sofia.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. It's very worth for money, our room was all rebuilt, clean and looked very nice. Toilet was kind of old but very good and clean. Breakfast was great as well, it was crowded because there are a few places to sit but it wasn't a problem.
