Great value with free breakfast AND dinner. They also offer a day trip to the Rila monastery so most things you need, the hostel can provide. Be aware that private dorms are about an 8 minute walk away in apartments. This is not an issue if you don't mind the walk. We did not find it to be an issue and is actually much quieter if that's what you're looking for.

Great hostel, location somewhat easy to find but directions could have been explained better. A small steel door under a sign next to a bank that no longer exists. Excellent staff, great service & fun place to hang out. Slept in 18 bed dorm bed close to the floor which worked out. Good bathrooms. City good for 1 or 2 days. Hostel just needs to give better directions especially if coming in at night from the airport.

Great hostel - fantastic common room, wide variety at breakfast, large rooms with comfortable beds. They also organise their own excursion to the Rila Monastery every day which was great!

Very friendly staff, great breakfast, funky/cozy common room. We stayed in a private double bed room which was big with a comfy bed. The staff pointed out things to see, bars and restaurants etc on a map, it was helpful.

Good hostel in Sofia. You get free breakfast and vegetarian meal at night, thus good value for money. I did stay a night less than planned in Sofia because there isnt much to do.

We had a lovely stay, but the beds in the private rooms are very springy and could use a new mattress

Stayed in a private room which is actually in another building about five minute's walk away. Both buildings are a short tram trip from the train/bus station and close to the major sites in the city. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The private rooms are in an apartment and there's a shared bathroom and kitchen and I had a computer in mine if you don't have a laptop. The best thing about the hostel though is the fantastic buffet breakfasts and dinners.

signage from the road could be loads better, even though we knew where we was staying because the first time we had been dropped there was by a taxi the second time finding the hostel after a day out was hard due to very poor signing.

Another great hostel in the Hostel Mostel chain. Super buffet breakfasts and dinners included in the price. Easy to get to from the train/bus station and close to the major sights in the city. The staff are really helpful. Only criticism would be the size of the lockers in the dorms, they're quite small. I couldn't fit even a small backpack in, even though the dorm was huge.
