We booked a double room as part of an online package. We were not expecting to have to walk from the main reception in the cold, while it was dark, all the way to where we would actually be staying. The room was located in a separate building of apartments. Wish this could of been stated clearly before booking. Besides that, everything was good. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were very nice. The room was spacious but the beds were not comfortable. However, this is a great hostel for people traveling on a budget. For most bookings they include free breakfast and dinner, which is pretty unheard of. That would have been amazing had it not been for the fact that the food gave us upset stomachs. Could of just been us, but we hadn't eaten anything other than the hostel food so we were pretty sure of it. In conclusion, I'm not sure what the actual dorms are like but if you book a private room just be prepared to walk a good 5-10 minutes to the actual main building.

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.
