I have stayed in far worse places. Clean rooms and shower/toilet facilities. We had a group of 6 of us for a stag do 5 of the beds we're fine but one was very uncomfortable. Our actual accommodation was about a 10 min walk from the reception but not a big deal. Would use again.

Awesome hostel. Well located, great bar crawl, clean rooms, cool chill out area and also serves breakfast and dinner. Both meals are basic but included in cost and filling (dinner is pasta). Highly recommend it and great for meeting people and going out.

We booked this hostel due to the high ratings on hostel world, but we were quickly disappointed. The staff was rude to us, and the ambiance was subpar. The rooms were okay, and the location was good..

Did a night in Sofia since it was cheaper to fly to than Greece (and then took a bus down), but I ended up wishing I could have extended my stay in part because this hostel is so wonderful! It's nothing fancy, but the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, offering detailed advice when I first arrived about what to...

We stayed a few nights at Mostel and it was really nice: welcoming hosts, clean rooms and very good location! Besides, the place is very convivial with the breakfast and dinner served in the main space. I definitely recommend!

It took me awhile to find the place as the street signs were in Cyrillic Alphabet but the location was 5 minute walk to the...
