Decided to stay at this hostel because of all the amazing reviews, both here and on hostels websites. First surprise we had was that there were no bedrooms with 8 beds as we had reserved and got confirmation of. We would have to stay 6 in one bedroom and 2 in the other bedroom. As for the quality of bedrooms and toilets, I would say it's one of the worst hostels I've been to, really. As for their staff, I've seen staff much nicer... so again just average staff. The positive point is really the free coffee, breakfast and dinner, therefore my 3 stars. Bottom line, I'll never comeback but might be worth it if you just want a bed slightly better than a sleeping bag and you are on a budget.

They even help you book amazing trips to different places around Bulgaria. Living there is pretty authentic experience in itself, more cultural. Place is also clean and hygenic with fast wi fi among other amenities.

Before I arrived in Sofia, all I heard about was Hostel Mostel, and it lived up to its reputation. Amazing value, nice rooms, comfortable beds with private locker, light and electricity socket. Then theres the food, the free breakfast was impressive, full of fruit, vegetables, eggs, bread etc. The dinner included beer and had three choices, all vegetarian as well so I was delighted. The meal times are great since they bring everyone together as well. Glad I stayed here, and I will do so again when I return to Sofia.
