The hostel has a really good atmosphere, breakfast was really good. The only issues I had was that our room was a little way from the reception area and all the facilities there! But still a great place to stay!
The fist day we arrived we had a nice room but it was unfortunatly not so nice! there were bugs in the bed so we had an awfull night. the second night they gave us another better but still the towel are really small and there is not so many facilities or contact with people because is not the main building. the breckfast is actually nice but they don't hav real juice.
This place i fantastic, one of the best iv stayed at
Greatest Hostel we stayed in so far. Go there and enjoy!
Pretty good hostel. Probably the best in Sofia. They try to charge you for the 'free' breakfast and dinner but they don't monitor it so just have it for free. I would recommend this over other hostels in Sofia.
This hostel is good foor sleeping and get in touch with other travellers. That´s it. not enough showers/toiletts -> wasn´t very clean. AC is net working in the big doorm.
The privates rooms ARE NOT in the hostel, they are in a different building, 10 minutes walking; so to get your breakfast, or dinner, or share with other travellers you have to go to the hostel. The mattress were really bad, may be the worst i've ever had in a hostel. There are also positives things: the staff is nice, specially Nini, she's been so kind with us. The breakfast is just excellent!
Everything was perfect but I would like to point out something important for those who book the 18 bedroom. When I arrived a super friendly member of the staff told me that in that bedroom, breakfast was not included. It was not a big problem because it´s no so expensive to eat in Sofia but I would like if you put that in the information of the hostel.
great map given by the staff with good recommendation !!! good breakfast !!! good location to visit the centre
18 bed room was great, showers were great, the fact that I got a free plate of pasta as well as beer was fantastic, all the staff were super helpful (especially Gulia) and the general atmosphere was great. Hope to come back one day! From your pal, Mr Champion.

The hostel attracts the world's most stereotypical "backpackers" and is good for those who like large groups and families disrupting their sleep throughout the night. Pluses include ensuite showers in most rooms, free breakfast and dinner (wooahhhh there, spicy pasta), and the historical building is in and of itself quite cool. I just wasn't a huge fan of the crowds and dirty wood floors, nor of the stray cats jumping through the window as I slept or was eating. Beware the "backpacker trail."
Private room was located about 200 meters from the hostel itself, though in a nice quiet sidestreet. Mayhaps we felt a bit tugged away from it all.
We enjoyed our stay at Hostel Mostel. It's the best hostel you can choose in Sofia. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is just perfect! We would stay at Hostel Mostel again! We booked a double room, this room is a 10 minutes walk away from the main hostel, but we didn't mind. The only thing we didn't like that much was the noise during the night. The room was located facing a main road, therefore sleeping after 7 o'clock in the morning was a bit difficult.

Really nice hostel with a good position. The staff was really polite and helpful. Rooms were nice, clean and the prices really cheap.
Great place, but the common room could use some AC. Great breakfast.
Overall the hostel is good but cleaning can be improved. Breakfast is great, a nice and simple dinner is also offered.
Good hostel with a nice big common space, where everybody meets for the free dinners.
During the check-in the staff gave us s very good introduction as for the places if interests, local restaurants etc. (and a map showing all of them), which was very useful. The only real minus was that some of the private rooms are located next to a very noisy street.
Staff so friendly and helpful, great atmosphere, relaxing and also good social feel. Free breakfast and evening meal awesome!! We stayed in the 18 bed dorm, it was really quiet at night and everyone respected each other. Was great having such a large cosy communal space. Would definitely stay there again, they have set the bar high for any other hostel I stay in! Don't hesitate in booking this place! Thanks so much :)
Great hostel, sadly I could only stay for one nights. The staff are lovely and really helpful, free dinner is a great way to meet other guest in the common room. Bathrooms were clean and there were enough showers/toilets that I didn't have to wait. The walk from the train/bus station is about 15mins and is an easy walk. I would stay here again.
