    During these difficult Corona times the Mostel Hostel has a really cool historic building and the staff were really funny. A lot of cool characters were staying around in Sofia. It is the coolest place ever. You can get a tram from Mostel to the foot of the mountain and you are a few minutes from the tourist center and all the bars.

    Hostel Mostel was a great place to stay in. Room was big, cozy, clean, with linen and towels. Shower was with hot water. The location is perfect - 5 minute walk from the Vitosha Boulvard which is the Centre of Sofia. Stuff were great. They were nice and provided me perfect service. I felt that i got far beyond for the attractive price i paid. I will definitely, once I return to Sofia, will make a reservation in Hostel Mostel.

    Due to Covid, there were not many people. In the 6 bed dorm room, we were 2 people. The bed was comfortable and clean. The location is perfect as everything is close to the hostel :) It was a really lovely experience for me as I met some really good people!

    Overall, nice downtown location in a private double room. Colorful interior. Friendly staff. The only downside - room was minimalistic in size and the towels were no good.

    We booked a private room, which was located in a building right next to the hostel itself (literally, two doors down). The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was shared with another room (located in the same apartment), and although it could use some renovation work, it served us well and was clean. Good location, walking distance to the main areas of Sofia. The hostel's social aspects were deeply affected by COVID-19, but the manager, was super nice and welcoming.

    An okay hostel to stay for a few nights. Staff are friendly and helpful but are on reduced hours given the situation, so they're not always around. Beds are comfy & have curtains; they have personal lockers (but need to be bigger) and a smaller valuables locker in the bunk. The main negative is that the hostel isn't cleaned daily, more like every 2/3 days so the shared facilities get quite dirty. Given the current situation they should be cleaning more than usual, not less.

    Expected a lot more. I guess due to few guests the reception and common areas were closed. Stayed in the appartment a few minutes away. The common area there was super small, and felt crowded if there was more than two people there. Didn't know there was a kitchen there before after 24h, since the uninspired staff never told me. Was not expecting to be by far the youngest person in my dorm. The 6 bed dorm was quite small, and it was a bit tight, specially considering circumstances around corona.

    Management is not as good as it should be, not serious about Covid19. Guests are using the kitchen and not cleaning after themselves because manager and stuff are not good enough to tell them, Excalibo is putting his own music and loud without considering the guests, he also targets every new girl, this place is too loud for relaxing, not listening to guests and their wishes, nice place but in the wrong hands, fridge is not working. I won't recommended this place.
