I loved the place. The location is central and feeling of seeing such woodenish place behind rather big blocks facades was suprising. Staff is one of the most helpful and naturally friendly group of people I saw in this kind of places. Amazing, they gave me food and tea and a moment of rest before taking me to the room,...

Very good location, clean place and very nice and helpful people working there. They organise day trips and other activities, so you don´t have to plan your trip to Sofia. People who wokr there will keep you busy and help you whenever you have questions. I will recommend this place to my friends :)

A great and cheap place for backpackers/ travelers near to the center of the city. The staff is helpful and friendly. You can meet people from all over the world there. The food is good! There are computers free to use as well.

I would have given this place a full 5 stars, if it weren't for the awful dorm room and sleeping (or lack of sleeping) experience I had. I've stayed in plenty of hostels and this one is the only one I've had such a negative dorm experience in. Was staying here just for one night before my flight out of...

I've stayed in hostels many times over the years, but I've got to say that this is actually one of the better ones. First of all, let me say that I can't speak to the dorm situation or vibe, because I was happy to rent out a single room at a cost of about €25. But my room was clean,...

I stayed at the hostel for 2 nights, the rooms are packed but clean, and you have as much privacy as you can get in an 8 beds-room, the beds are clean, so are the toilets and showers. The reception which also functions as dinning area is big, comfy and always full of people, you can sit and talk with...

I found Hostel Mostel to be very good, especially considering the very low price they charge. The hostel is very well located and is easy walking distance from the center of Sofia as well as the train and bus station. I stayed in a dorm room in the main building and the room and bathroom was great and very clean....

Staff is super nice, rooms are clean, food (breakfast and dinner!) is good and there is always coffee and tea available for free. Common room is really homey, as well as people. Hostel is located in city center, so all the sights are cca 10min away. We loved it!

I have stayed at many hostels in the last few years, and this was the most disappointing. The different opinions may have to do with the different buildings the hostel runs, as it has grown so fast as a result of the positive reviews that they run three buildings, one of which is quite far. I booked a single room,...
