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.
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.
