We had such a good time at the hostel! Met some lovely people, had great food and the staff were super helpful despite a transfer mix up! We really loved the rooms with the separate curtained beds!
The free dinner and breakfast were a bargain, the rooms were adequate and everything pretty clean. Security was lacking as you couldnt really lock the very large window in our room so it was constantly open - anyone could just climb in
Brilliant staff, very sociable place and the breakfast is fantastic, dinner is plain but understandably so and still great value.
Great place to stay, the also offer good day tours. BUT breakfast and dinner are NOT included in the price no matter what it says on the wensite. But its only 3 euros for dinner + brekkie.
Really enjoyed our stay here, the hostel is in a good location with all the facilities you could ask for. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the hostel has a good atmosphere and with breakfast and dinner included you can't go wrong, would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Sofia!
One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. There is breakfast and dinner included. The staff was very friendly, helpful and fluent in English.
Best hostel we've stayed at so far. Wish we had more time. Awesome common room and atmosphere
It was my 2nd stay at Hostel Mostel after 10 years. It was cleaner and more organized with friendlier staff than that time. Breakfast and dinner were basic but nice. It would be hard for other hostels in Sofia to beat Mostel.
Brilliant hostel. Great value. Very helpful staff. We stayed in apartment about 10 mins away it was nice and had wife but tiny bit annoying being away from main building. The dinner was good but only criticism is the room is quite small for the number of guests and it was hard to get somewhere to sit and eat.

Had too much fun at this hostel, while it has lots of guests, you can still enjoy cozyness and peace at this hostel, met great people here!
Faultless hostel. Everything about it is excellent.
The hostel is located at about 15-20' minutes walking from the main train station. The building itself is a refurbished 19 century hostel and looks wonderful. The staff is friendly and attentive, they kindly provide you with quick information about what to visit, where to dinner etc. Breakfast and dinner are included and the breakfast is buffet free like. The rooms are tidy with two lockers per person. Nice wifi connection, billar, clean baths. They also organize trips. 5/5 would repeat.
We feel it should be advertised on the website that the private rooms are a good 10minute walk up the road, which was not very comfortable late at night following chilling out in the main hostel. Showers in the private room area were not brilliant, with a lack of general cleanliness and water pressure being the main issues. Good location overall, and good excursions offered.
A bit of a hippie vibe. Staff was friendly. Showers and bathrooms adequate. 18 bed dorm had foam mattresses, bed linen old and too small. Not well organized on bed assignations, on the second night someone else had taken my bed and I had to use another bed. Good location and good value. Would probably stay again.
Amazing hostel! Everyone I spoke to recommended this place and I will be too. Breakfast and dinner included for €10 a day!!! Great atmosphere and plenty of people to meet and hang out with.
This was probably one of the best hostels I have been too. The staff was friendly and helpfull. Most nights there was a option to go on a pub crawl for free. You also have a option to eat dinner and breakfast for 3€! The only "con" is that there are only a couple of showers and toilets. But the atmospheres made all of this more than good. I would definitely recomened this hostel for everybody !!
Great place to chill out. Staff are very knowledgable and the hostel has a variety of day trips to recommended each day. The free breakfast and dinners are tasty. Wifi is great. Personal lockers available in rooms. Very clean.
This is a great hostel with all the standard features. The staff were particularly helpful.
The hostel is in a decent location, the staff were very friendly and sat down with us for a detailed explanation of what there was to see in the city and where we could eat out (breakfast and dinner are included in the price - breakfast was good, I didn't try dinner).
