Here you can find a really kind guest service, good traveling atmosphere at the lobby. They will be more than happy to help you with everything you may need in your trip in Bulgaria. You get the chance to meet people at the lobby either at breakfast or dinner time. They have music instruments, a pool table, pcs, etc. They...

The main reception/common area is a great place to hang out in - really chill, really nice decor. Staff are really friendly and genuine. We were in an 'annex'', ie in a block of flats a couple of minutes away from the hostel, and overall it was good for the price (which is good in itself). The rooms, corridor, kitchen,...

I stayed @ Mostel in VT and was told that the Sofia one was ace, I was a bit sceptical because it was a real party crowd and I expected to not get any sleep! However, It's without doubt best hostel I've stayed at in Europe. The rates are super low, they are accommodating, they offer loads of tours and...

Our second stay at Hostel Mostel, this time just for the one night before our flight the next day. Stayed in double room with shared bathroom which was located in a separate building around 5 minutes walk away from the main reception/building. The Hostel is easy to get too from the train/bus station and the airport. Also, it is within...

Slept in an 8 bed ensure (shower and sink) dorm. Really great idea that all the bunks have curtains for privacy, and everyone gets a locker and a valuables storage block. -ves: The fan in the shower runs continuously and is quite noisy and you have to walk outside to the toilet block - in January that's a quiet a...

Great place, high value. After finding the hostel online but being unable to book (our fault) we simply walked in and had beds in a shared dorm in 3 minutes. The large common area invites people to sit together and talk, coffee and tea are available throughout the day. Pub crawl was awesome, we saw several places (3 or 4)...

From the minute I entered Hostel Mostel I knew that the place was unlike any other hostel. With several surrogate apartments, it forces residents to navigate Sofia even the tiniest bit to help them acquaint themselves with the colorful and jagged city. Because of this, my travel buddy and myself got to feel like young, urban Bulgarians simply by walking...

Though this was my first hostel experience, I couldn't imagine a better hostel. The staff were extremely happy, friendly, and helpful. They informed us about the free walking tour (definitely recommend), led a fun pub crawl, and organized a trip to Rila Monastery. Breakfast was great and dinner was fun and social. Wifi is fast in the lobby and in...

The location is very close the center. Big common room, where you can meet other travellers or stay on your own, there is place for everybody. Well orgsnized rooms where every bed is with curtains, chargers 2 different security boxes. The breakfast they give is huge. Dinner is enough if you don't wanna spend money outside. Staff very friendly and...
