    I really enjoyed my time at Hostel Mostel! It was a great atmosphere and I met some good people. The staff and volunteers were great. The free breakfast, dinner and beer was a huge bonus. I appreciate the curtains on your bed also. All these little things were a great touch. I would highly recommend staying here!

    Superb. They offer a free breakfast with coffee and free dinner with Bulgarian beer. These meals are filling, healthy, and truly free. Otherwise the hostel's accomodations are comfortable and adequate. The social atmosphere is incredible. It's quite easy to meet great people. The location itself is secure and they offer free spacious lockers in the rooms. The only big issue I had here was, my room had a shower room, but I had to leave my room to go to a shared bathroom for a toilet. Highly recom

    Staff were so welcoming, polite and informative from the first moment. Breakfast and dinner were included and were probably the best food I've had at a hostel to date. 8-bed dorm was clean, spacious and each bed had curtains, a shelf, a little lock-up storage space and a shelf, all next to the bed. Could not recommend it more highly.

    The breakfast and dinner alone are worth the stay here. Great location and super helpful staff. They also offer a day trip to the Rila Monastery, which is cheaper than other tours, though you essentially pay for the ride; you won't get a guide or anything. The hostel is a little spread out, and my room was in a converted apartment. Shared a bathroom (always hot water), kitchen (with washer), living room between 8 people. I saw it cleaned every day. Definitely recommend!

    Really social, but that’s what having free dinner will do for you. The common area is great too. Bit of a weird set up with the rooms being far away. My only thing is that the hostel staff seemed a bit rude, I get it’s annoying to have to answer the same questions over and over, some of them pointless questions too. But that is your job. Multiple times I felt bad for some guests struggling with English and being rudely dealt with. Overall sick, I’d stay again, would be flawless if staff improve

    This hostel is very lively, there is always people around and some music. Breakfast was VERY nice, diner was poor. Our room was 5 min away from the hostel so we missed a bit the atmosphere of the hostel. Staff was nice although before arriving my questions were not well answered (We paid the picking up service from the airport very expensive because after asking several times if the 15€ of this service was per person or for the ride, we got only vague answers so, guess what, we had to pay 30€).

    The hostel is dirty. Things didn’t seem clean... the common zone had to be quiet after 22pm and no drinking allowed... the only really great thing was breakfast
