After a stop in varna - the black sea's party capital, VT is the best place to relax and explore Bulgaria's amazing culture. The hostel is situated near the town's citadel and in walking distance from the center. Breakfast and dinner are very tasty and included in the price - which is great when you are on a budget.

We arrived by bus to town and had some really sketch cab drivers try to rip us off. After telling them we knew how much it cost they started getting angry with us and saying nasty things. The hostel kindly called for a cab for us (was there in 4 mins) and even lent us Lev to pay for it... More

This place is a bit of a hike from the bus station, and when we arrived, we were told that our room had been booked by someone else (what they should have done was move those people to a different room, instead of telling us to leave). The staff did help us find new accommodations, but they weren't up to... More

We stayed one night at Hostel Mostel on our way across Bulgaria. I was nervous about staying in a hostel after a prior experience, but I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. We stayed in a room with two single beds and one double. We were also lucky to have our own bathroom. Both the room... More

The staff was extremely nice and helpful. They really tried their best to make everybody's stay perfect. The free breakfast and the free dinner were excellent. The hostel has a very nice garden and the rooms were clean. All in all I just had a perfect stay.

When you get off the bus from Sofia or other places you should be near the area where the walking tour starts. If you feel up to it, ask around for what time that starts, I think it starts around 10AM but other free tours might be available. The tour ends near the hostel anyway on the other side of... More

I usually don't stay at hostels because they are full of young guy and so noisy. But this hostel was different. With friendly staff -- Nelly and Alex -- it was so comfortable to stay here for two nights. The 24-hour reception, coffee and tea at any time, free breakfast and dinner(!), fast wifi... There was nothing I could complain... More
