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... More

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,... More

The reception which also functions as dinning area is big, comfy and always full of people, you can sit and talk with... More

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.... More

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,... More

This hostel has a clean and friendly environment with good breakfasts and dinners. It is centrally located and the staff are really helpful with every need. Showers are hot and have good pressure, beds are comfortable and high enough to sit up in. The hostel feels very safe and secure. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to... More
