Staff were absolutely great. Free dinner was quite nice and the same with breakfast. Had not understood that some of the rooms were in a different building (not very far), but that kind of cut us out from the atmosphere the main building had to offer.
This place has so much potential, Firstly, if you book the 18bed dorm, they'll tell you on arrival that the free meals are not included in this. They really should put this on their website. The meals are cheap otherwise 6lev (3euro for dinner and breakfast) but I worked out it was better value to just upgrade dorms and get the meals for free, as you're basically paying the same. Meals are great value.Beds are springy and uncomfortable. Excellent atmosphere. Good location. Staff are so helpful.
One of the best hostels ive ever been to! Highly recommended!
Great place to socialise and the staff were very helpful.
This was a nice hostel with really great breakfast!! Staff were really helpful and the hostel was located just a 5-10 minute walk to the main street in Sofia. The 18 bed dorm is in the attic and is okay but I wish I'd have stayed in the smaller rooms because they looked so much nicer!
Our stay was great in some regards and not so great in others. Great were the staff, bathroom cleanliness, wifi, breakfast. Not so great were the location of our room, which was a 15 min walk from where you check in. When it's pouring and you paid for a taxi to stay dry this didn't impress us. The room was really hot and the air con had a weird cardboard box cover and the fan didn't work. The only other negative was we got told the food tour the time had changed, it hadn't and we missed it.
A very good hostel, one of the best I have stayed at. Although not being in the main building (apartment 2-3mins down the street) I had a very good experience at Hostel Mostel. The dorm was pleasant enough although the beds were creaky. Fun Bar Crawl organised by the hostel, providing the opportunity to meet everyone at the hostel. Free breakfast and Dinner included, considering the price per night was very reasonable. Perfect place to explore Sofoa and meet new people!
If you are looking for great hostel with a lovely and fun staff and awesome breakfast in the middle of sofia, hostel mostel is just the perfect place to stay. Everything is very clean and well organised. The staff will help you with all your needs and is very nice. When you are in the mood for party you can just join the people in a big room, where you can also relax and sleep a bit when waiting for check-in or so. In one word: perfect!
Pretty average hostel, erring on the nicer side. Privacy curtains and outlets in the bed. Not a lot of outdoor space to hang out in, and you can't drink outside after 10--wasn't a big deal for me, but if that's what you're looking for it's not ideal. Most standout feature was the staff. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and happy to help. Overall I'd recommend it.
I have been travelling for almost 3 months all around Europe and the staff in this hostel are the most friendly, helpful, fun and understanding people I have come across! I would go to Bulgaria again just to see these lovely people ! The free dinner and the daily pub crawls are also a great way to meet people! I was sad to leave this place and was super impressed with the value for money!! 😘
Loved this place! we stayed in a private apartment and it was so clean, so central, staff were so helpful and the walking tour and pub crawls were great! Not to mention the free breakfast and dinner - delicious! Cant fault the place, highly recommend!
This is a great hostel with a sociable atmosphere, comfortable beds with curtains for privacy, a PowerPoint per bed and wifi that worked in the dorm. My only caution would be that the free breakfast and dinner are not included for prices of under €9 a night. These meals are 6lev each extra which I think is worth it for the breakfast (eggs, waffles, fruit) but not always for the dinner (pasta). Overall I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay here again.
Good hostel would come back. Couple of the staff weren't too friendly. The pub crawls they have are so awful you question the places they select. I was annoyed they had bolted the window in my room because there was no air conditioner and it was hard to sleep.
The hostel was perfect. The staff is incredibly helpful and nice, they make the hostel even more perfect :) The atmosphere in the common areas is awesome, perfect place to meet fellow travelers! Plus there's unlimited and delicious breakfast included, and also vegetarian dinner! Never seen that before :) Everything is very clean. The bed are not that comfortable, but it's really the only slightly negative point of it all. Also, the hostel organises plenty of activities, such as hiking in the mo
What an excellent hostel. I dare you to find better value for money. An amazing breakfast and a solid dinner included with every days stay at a already cheap price?! Unbelievable. Really good atmosphere and solid facilities in a neat old building. Helpful staff and really nice rooms....what more can I say... Stay here!
Seemed like a good place. Was only there for one brief night, but it had great facilities, good location, and had a good atmosphere in the evening
great hostel. the free dinner is amazing. the stuff are super friendly and very helpful
