    This hostel was so much fun! Great location and Dali was an absolute blast. Walked in super late from my bus and he was the first to greet me and make me feel welcomed. Sofia isn't much of a party city at the moment because of covid, but he definitely still got everyone's energy up in the evening. Definitely recommend!

    Super functional hostel with everything you need: small locker, shelves, lamp and outlet next to the bed, and a big locker. Helpful staff and good vibes in the common room. I had an amazing stay!

    Really nice hostel with very cool vibes. People from all ages and all the world are gethering together and the atmosphere is very good. I stayed in 8 bed dorms- The beds are good, the room is nice- there is a privecy, shelves and lockers. I highly recommend. Two things for improvement: 1. I would add ventilation hood system for cooking - when cooking the entire sitting spce catches the smell and the steam. 2. There is a problem in one of the sinks in the toilet that causing the water to leak.

    While the amenities are a little bit outdated, hostel mostel has a lot of charm and an interesting history. It's an excellent budget option to explore Sofia it you want to socialise and meet other travellers. The rooms were clean and comfortable,with each bunk having its own curtain, plug, locker with key, and light. The common room was a great place to meet people and the staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming. They also have computers to use free of charge

    Keep in mind there are two buildings! One main building, where the reception is and also a kitchen with shared products. The second building is 3 minutes away, very easy to find. There are the private rooms, with a very small kitchen and shared bathrooms and toilets. Staff is super nice and helpful, ask them anything you want to know about your stay in the hostel and in Sofia as well! Enjoy your stay at Hostel Mostel Sofia!

    The staff of Hostel Mostel was very nice and welcoming. The private rooms are in another building 7 walking minutes away from the main building also in a backyard. The location was sadly smelling bad, and there were hair on the "freshly" made bed. Also the room was super cold, as the window is not closing properly and in the morning the water at the sink was not working. So it was not the best feeling to stay in the room. For me personally it was okay, as I was a lot outside anyways.

    Very Good

    12 Nov 2021
    A little bit rundown, the bunkbeds rocky (need to tighten the screws or something), at the end of my stay none of the toilets in first floor worked and the toilets in common bathroom were kind of dirty from other guests not using the toilet brush (but the were cleaned once a day). The staff were very helpful. As it is a big hostel there is always someone to be social with, but half the people in the common areas that hung out during day time were over 60. Cheap, so you get what you pay for

    Very Good

    Could be more cleaner as the room was stinking with people's sweat. The building is old but it could be made better with the old looks. The toilets where not clean. I could be improved better and has the potential do. The staff members are really cool and friendly. Infact very helpful and polite.
