Hostel Mostel was one of the best hostels my best friend and I stayed in during our 2 months backpacking through Europe. The staff are very helpful, the layout is very conducive of meeting other people, safe environment, breakfast, dinner, a beer, and a coupon for a free shot at the bar next door are all included. Definitely calmed me down in a strange country. (but the country was wonderful too!)

I work in a youth hostel and I know perfectly how hostels work, and I can honestly say that this hostel was one of the best I've ever been to. It's such a beautiful hostel, with a huge common area where I met a lot of people, they also give free dinners and drinks, so it's great to get closer to other travellers
.The location is great, near to everything, train station, main attractions, party area, and so... but quiet at the same time, so you will have a good sleep there.
The staff is also great, they do their job and more, super friendly all the time, and making people feel comfortable there, talking to everyone...they also give you maps and directions. Specially Damian, the best receptionist I've ever met!
They also organise trips to Rila Monastery, and some other bungee jumping activities. Don't miss the Rila Monastery one, they will pick you up at the door, take you there, show you the place, tell you the story.. And it's the same price as if you do it by yourself.

I've been to other 2 hostels in Sofia that were highly rated(before going to this one) and I definitely would recommend this one over the others, I've been already twice there, and if I'm ever back in Sofia I will go there again.

Thank you guys, you made my stays!

Very impressed with the location, helpfulness of staff, cleanliness, security (the lockers in the rooms are great) and the free breakfast. All round great stay, just wish I could've stayed for longer. Will definitely be staying here again..

It’s a very large hostel, with a main building and various apartments in the neighborhood. They have a very laid back atmosphere with customers from all over the world. If they run out of rooms you’ll find people sleeping on the porch or in the common rooms. Breakfast was a very communal event and everyone was very friendly. The staff was knowledgable about the area and happy to help. Although it was very cheap, reasonably clean, easy to find and quiet enough it was not the best choice for me. I disliked being in the apartment a block away, if you need anything or have a question you can’t just run downstairs and ask - you have to travel the block away and cross 2 streets to get there in any weather may be occurring. The bunk bed was very tiny and quite wobbly. I moved to a smaller place with a more intimate and cozy atmosphere and with so many choices in Sofia it wasn't hard.

Although my room was in the 20 dorm attic, it wasn't too bad. They had a massive group in, and it was the only place they could fit me! The staff were excellent. The walking tour was definitely worth it. Very fascinating. (Make sure you tip, they deserve it). Free dinners were a great touch, even if they are pretty simple. Good Internet.
