Hostel Mostel: has an excellent, younger, backer vibe. Great common area with relaxed and social atmosphere. One of the best breakfast buffets I’ve encountered, be sure to pay the extra for it - also includes a spaghetti/rice dinner with a beer.
Our private double was in a separate building, about a 10 minute walk from the main hostel. Baths are shared; there is wifi; two computers are in the hall, outside the rooms, and depending who is using them, it can get noisy. Also, our room faced the main street, which was problematic do to the bright ambient light from the the street lamps (heavy curtains could alleviate that) and the tram is loud as it passes by). A quarter of mattress that we had was broken/sagged.
Hostel Mostel’s staff are friendly and super helpful. The location is central, much is in walking distance. We arranged a excursion to the Riga Monastery through the hostel - a great deal, though be prepared for a driver that might put your life in danger (thrilling, terrifying or both).
I’d stay again.
Note: Avoid at all cost taking any cab from the Sofia airport. Take the bus towards the city, then take a cab to your final destination.
