Hostel Mostel
Ranked #24 of 47 Specialty Lodging in Plovdiv
Reviewed February 9, 2012

I've been there with 12 friends and we had one very big room accommodating all of us. We had a lot of fun and all the beds were comfortable! The lady managing it, was very friendly but little angry at us cause we didn't understand her at one point…

The price is cheap and includes a beer and dinner… basic dinner but good enough for a traveler on a budget!!

They have one computer with free internet accessible 24/7!

The staff are excellent. The dorms are clean and bright. The beds are comfortable. The location is good - around half way between the railway and bus stations and the old town in a quiet street. It's excellent value for money with a light dinner, a beer and breakfast included in the price.
Now for the "buts". On the main floor there are ~14 dorm beds (some are singles that look as though they could have top bunks added to them to bring the total number of beds to ~20) but there is only one toilet and two showers. There is only one computer. The garden, which could be nice, is overgrown and full of garden rubbish. The seating in the common room is a tired old blue leather sofa and chairs matched with a smoked glass coffee table - not great for eating breakfast off.
It felt like it could be so much better with a bit of investment.

I cannot say it's the best hostel I've ever been but it was ok.
The location is good cause it's at the border of the city centre so you don't have to walk on the cobbled street of Plovdiv to find it and you can reach the bus stations with a 15mins walk.
Rooms are clean and in the basement there is a cozy common room where you can meet other guests.
Outdoor space is kind of poor and not so trim place. Could be better.
Breakfast is ok, and there is dinner included in the rate

Last but not least: Plovdiv is a very charming town

I understand this is a newly acquired property for "Hostel Mostel". The grounds are unkept, but the location is quiet, a little out of the way. Still the free WiFi, cleanliness, good sized private room, & it's (somewhat-less-than-its counterpart in Sofia) breakfast, dinner of lentil soup & beer, make for a reasonable deal. Would like to see more screens added to let in air w/o bugs.

Hostel Mostel Ploviv is close to the main square with the post office but on a nice quiet street so you can easily walk there after sightseeing and get a good night's sleep. We did lost a couple times trying to find it though!

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good, and they also made a simple dinner for the guests in the evenings! The beds were comfortable and a couple of cute kittens come to visit at the front door common area. It's a nice hostel and Plovdiv is a great city to visit.
