The hostel is actually quite difficult to find because it's hidden behind some buildings and you have to go through a not-so-obvious door to get access to it. Once you're in there, it is a nice sight in a quiet courtyard with cats roaming around everywhere and the staff are very welcoming and made our check-in really easy. We had...

Whoever renovated this building (an old lodge built a for travelers on their way to Athens) knew what they were doing! One of best bed setups I've seen: Each bed has nice thick curtains, 2 charging stations, and mini locker (plus bigger locker in room). Pay about 3 euro for vegetarian dinner and breakfast. SO worth it and great way...

I stayed in Hostel Mostel for two nights and had an amazing time. The staff were great, and were able to direct me to all of the best things to do in Sofia. The common room was great to hang out in, not to mention the very tasty breakfast. The hostel organised an awesome day trip up to Rila Monastery...

The hostel is very well located. We booked a private room and stayed in a building located some blocks from the main building and reception. The staff was very gentle - Stephan helped us with the public parking, took us to the new building and was very kind. Super recommended!

You have to climb a stair that is out in the open in order to get to the rooms. Let's just say you'd rather die than getting up in the middle of the night to face the cold just to use the toilet!!! I couldn't understand why they turned off the heater during the day! Lovely lounge, though. They offer...

It's easy to see why Hostel Mostel is an award winning place to stay, the staff will do absolutely anything to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We had a misunderstanding with our airport collection, the guys at Hostel Mostel not only discounted our pick up 50% and apologised but upgraded the dorm we had booked to a...

First of all I recommend that if you want to make a reservation here, via their webpage, you should make it with some anticipation, I got my confirmation a month after I booked. This is the best hostel I've stayed in so far in Europe. When arriving a staff member will take some time to show you their services, give...

Super friendly and helpful staff, the included breakfasts and dinners are more than what other hostels have to offer. Especially love the extra privacy you get with the curtains per bed. Facilities are super clean and spacious. Driver for the rila monastery did his best to point out landmarks and give a little background about the monastery which was good...

Was extremely disappointed to arrive and be told that the room that I booked in the hostel, was actually a room in some non descript and ilegal apartment 10 minutes away from main building. The place is really terrible and I wouldn't recommended it . Very, very dirty and badly smell rooms. ,,Good option'' for people which looking to sleep...
