One of my top 5 hostels. Aug 29, 2011
After a particularly long-winded train trip from Athens and a half-lost wander round the centre of Sofia with 2 backpacks in not inconsiderate midday heat, I couldn't have asked for any more than to eventually walk in Hostel Mostel.

The incredible friendly staff seem happy to help with any query or request, while in the common room it's easy to meet someone else who's plans are similar to your own if your traveling solo. And I think every budget traveller will agree the free dinners are greatly appreciated!

Hostel Mostel pretty much has everything that makes backpacking fun. They also have a branch in Veliko Taranovo which is of a similar standard. Great place.

great budget value Mar 18, 2011
Hostel Mostel is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed. The public place in front of the entrance gate doesn´t look very nice but after entering the courtyard you can see the charming old building with the nice balcony. The staff, beds and the atmosphere all very good and the big common room is a haven for new travel friendships. The free diner is not exactly gourmet style but it fills up as well as the beer.

Highly recommended Jun 28, 2011
Great hostel in the heart of Sofia! Brilliant staff! These guys and gals are so friendly and helpful, they should give seminars to hostel staffs around the globe! It's not just that they went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that I get my anti-rabies injection without a glitch. They are always there for the guests, making sure that the enjoy their stay in Sofia to the fullest. It doesn't get much better than this! =) Cool hostel with lots of personality. Highly recommended!

The Mostel Hostel Jul 14, 2008
This is a good hostel. It's a very hostel-y hostel with a huge common room filled with young travelers from around the world playing games, watching the neverending music videos on the large screen television, writing home or researching the next leg of the trip on the free internet stations... It's a very social place, good if you want to meet other travelers.

They have the system down pretty well here with a variety of rooms and configurations for single travelers or groups. The reservation system worked well, although there were the usual mysterious extra fees in the "final price". It's a very well run hostel with professional staff and good equipment.

One nice thing is the free pasta and glass of beer that comes with the room. Well, free but they add a Euro to your bill.. but it's still a good deal. The food and beer portions are generous, and there's a nice breakfast spread available in the morning - a nice filling breakfast buffet, not just a pitcher of juice and some bread. You also get a nice map of the city they've produce with the major sites marked. A good map is always of great value... Internet access is fast and good, but there may be a wait for the three available stations.

The dorm room was nice and clean, but a little crowded and hot with 9 beds I think in a 4x5-meter room. it seems to run at capacity during the high season with 50-60 guests, I'd estimate.

The building is great. It looks like a Spanish hacienda with the huge common area downstairs, rooms above connected by a wide balcony, and large restrooms at one end. The two story building is in the large courtyard formed by tall high-rise housing on all sides. You enter throuh a tiny door in this wall of buildings, expecting to enter a staircase, but a tunnel leads to the open courtyard.

I'd reccommend Mostel Hostel if you like a social, crowded hostel with a lot of activities and interaction with other travelers. It's not too noisy at night, but you won't get to bed too early. It's a fun place to stay.
