“The Hostel with the Most(el)!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

The location is great, the staff are super friendly and if you get a private room the breakfast and dinner (spaghetti and a beer) are free. If you stay in a dorm they are only 6 lev. Plus there are kittens and wifi!!! What more could you want??? It is a little bit tricky to find the hostel if you are new to Sofia. Something to consider is the hostels €10 transport service from the airport. Pre-book with them and they will get you from the airport to the hostel with no hassle! Enjoy Sofia!

Thanks allot, was nothing short of a great time. I guess these guys ahve been a round a fair while and it shows, they have the whole hostel thing down to a fine art. The breakfast is a serious undertaking, the largest, best looking breakfast Ive seen since mums jam and pancake days. The location is perfect, right in the middle of Sofia. I think all the private rooms are located in building not directly attached to the hostel, which can be a blessing and bit of a pain. Worth considering if you want to be right in the middle of the action. In brief this place has everything one expects from a well run hostel, including helpful, friendly staff. Special thanks to Todd, goodtimes.

i guess everyone wrote that, 10 euros for breakfast AND dinner (altough it was spaghetti everyday) + glass of beer. awesome.
good:
- very mixed guests, which is good. i met people all over europe (but also lot of high school uk groups), but also japanese who traveled the world, older couples etc.
- clean, wifi everywhere, computer
- excellent location
- pretty rooms
bad:
- the friendlyness of the staff is rather on a mediocre level.

We only stayed 2 nights here, but we had great fun. We stayed in the attic room which had lots of beds, so it was cool. The hostel was really relaxed, and in a nice location with really friendly staff.

This hostel is a nice place to stay in Sofia for a very reasonable price. There is a giant dorm underneath the roof (20 beds). You can get pasta and beer at night and breakfast in the morning. They organize pub crawls which is a great way to meet people and go out in nice pubs and clubs. The hostel is clean and very well located, with a very comfortable common room. It has all the facilities you might need: wifi, computers, free maps, bathrooms, a kitchen.
The only disadvantage I would think of is that it doesn't have much of a family atmosphere: you get the feeling that they don't personalize the service for you, they are very used to dealing with many many guests.

Really nice hostel with a good position. The staff was really polite and helpful.
Rooms were nice, clean and the prices really cheap.
The hostel is located in a really beautiful old building (The Old Inn, a old greek travellers inn)
