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.
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.
This is my second time here, it's definitely one of the best hostels in Europe!
I just can raccomand to everybody this hostel. The staff is nice and available, the atmosphere is very good too.
So amazing. Free waffles for breakfast, free dinner, amazing staff, clean rooms, great location, and lots of new friends. Really one of the best hostels I've ever been to. Stay here. And go on the pub crawls to meet new friends. :)
Very good hostel, totally recommendable! :) Breakfast and dinner were really good and cheap! :) In general you get a looot for your money, very nice chill out area, big common room, staff is perfect, they explain you everything and help you organize your trips :) they also offer many group activities and trips if you like that :)
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.
Hostel Mostel is by far the best hostel I have stayed in before. Amazing atmosphere and the staff are friendly and happy to help. Look forward to my next visit.
We had a lovely stay, but the beds in the private rooms are very springy and could use a new mattress
Great hostel, excellent value for money. Best hostel breakfast had in 8 months travel through europe. Good location to everything. Staff are very helpful with any questions you may have. Would def recommend this hostel.
Great dinner and breakfast. Good wifi. Huge common room. Comfy beds, nice bathrooms and showers. Close to the center. Helpful staff.
Staff were friendly and breakfast was excellent.
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.
