Bed bugs in Relaxing space! I never stay again. チェックイン開始時間過ぎてもチェックインできず。共有スペースで待っていたら南京虫にやられました。
This hostel is a good one if you want t meet people. The staff is nice and organize good excursions! You have a big living room, separated from the rooms. I will recommended this hostel!
This place is number one for a reason - everything is well done, organised and they know what a backpacker needs from sufficient showers, toilets to tourist maps, packaged breakfast and dinner to actually spending time one on one with you to go through all the recommendation. The 18 bed dorm wasn't a nightmare at all, no bunk beds but rather an attic with mattress on floor, despite the number, it was very quiet, They had a pub crawling so that other guests won't be disturbed.
A reasonable place but the owners need to spend some money on it - feeling a little shabby. Not enough communal space for the number of beds. Friendly staff, very good breakfast. A refurb and a lick of paint would do wonders. And why in the name of God can't you pay in euros? Absolutely bizarre - not a problem in Serbia, Macedonia or Albania.
A bigger hostel than most in Bulgaria with pub crawls nightly. I stayed in a private room which is a good 10 minutes away from the main dorms. They do day trips also and made the stay in a fairly boring city a very nice one thanks to their service
Everything was very good. Considering the extremely low price and the free+tasty breakfast and dinner, we could not have wished for anything better. If I really need to write a few things that we considered to be a bit negative, I'd say the heat in the lobby/common space/eating area was always very unpleasant, just as the very loud noises from trams passing by the building we lived (I realize it's hard to actually do something about this - but still, it was pretty annoying in the early mornings)

Hostel Mostel is an awesome hostel! It is chilled out, but runs efficiently. The staff are really nice & helpful and they give you a run down of what to see in Sofia when you arrive. The common area is large & great for meeting people especially at breakfast and dinner, which are both provided free everyday. Great community. Has good laundry service. Can leave your luggage for free on checkout. The only issue is that the bed wasn't very comfortable, but I didn't spend much time in bed anyway!
Hostel mostel is a lovely place, staff is very helpful, very good english, in a very good location, I've been suggesting this place to everyone. Great place thanks guys :)
Good hostel.. very nice staff, which is really helpful. Location is great and breakfast/diner are nice. Nice place to meet people.
It is very simple. After more than a year travelling through 5 continents, staying at dozens and dozens of hostels, this hostel surely has to be in our top 3! Excellent services and facilities, with ultracheap breakfast and dinner options, both of which were just huge. Cannot recommend this place highly enough!!
Fantastic stay. Great common room for meeting people and hanging out. FREE breakfasts and dinners are amazing! Hosts are really helpful and friendly. Did the day trip to Rila Monastery run by the hostel, which was really good. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, would definitely recommend.
Super friendly and they put us in an appartment round the corner that was great !
A wonderful hostel with extremely pleasant staff who serve a great breakfast and dinner for free everyday. Large common/dining room which acted as a great way to socialise and meet new people in the hostel. Very efficient laundry service and a great base for staying in Sofia.
Thanks guy, that was the perfect stop for the last days of my trip.

The best hostel i've ever stayed in! The staff are awesome and the atmosphere is great. I went on the organised pub crawls and on the day trip to Rila monastery and had such a good time. I would definitely DEFINITELY stay here again!
The staff here are very helpful. The location is a walkable distance to the city sites. I stayed in the 18 bed dorm (a large loft space). The bed (a mattress on the floor) is comfortable and a locker is provided for valuables. As would be expected in a room with 18 people, not everyone goes to bed at the same time. Don't be surprised if like me, you are woken in the night by a loud mouth English person. Of course there is the option of a much smaller room. Overall this is a good hostel.
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.
