Bed bugs!!


One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Great staff, great atmosphere


Had a great time here at Hostel Mostel. Breakfast and dinner were good (though beware you have to pay extra if you select the economy option as they call it) and even included free waffles. Which is pretty sweet. They organised a lot of activities whilst I was there like free hiking tours and cave climbing. Every night there was a pub crawl which was free and usually pretty good. When I come back to sofia I'd absolutely stay here again. A steal for the price they charge you.


Very easy-going stuff of Hostel Mostel will give you a warm welcome and give very detailed information about the city and posibble activities. Its charming.


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 :)


Excelent hostal. Congratulations.


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 !


Amazing hostel!


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.
