to find, because it's actually located in a courtyard behind some other buildings, but once I arrived I was greeted warmly by staff. The hostel is housed in an old wooden building, which has a long history as an Inn apparently. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the staff are friendly, and the common area is perfect for meeting like minded travellers. It has everything you could hope for in a hostel, and one thing is for sure if I return to Sofia there is no where else I would stay!

I loved this place for a boatload of reasons - it's cool during the days, and though I stayed in the cheapest room, in the loft in which they'd crammed an extra half-dozen beds, it had character.

There's tons of cats roaming about the yard which is quite welcome, and though Hostel Mostel Sofia is close to the centre of town, it's in a quiet courtyard with a secure access door.

I remember the staff being really helpful, booking taxis to take groups off us out for the eve, and advising us on where to go.

Pretty much a "party hostel", with a bar right next door, owned by the same people. I love the traditional building with the wooden terrace. My room was actually on the top floor, in the big, vaulted attic, which was quite different and very cool. Friendly staff but they were a bit too pushy selling tours, breakfasts, dinners etc. which was a little annoying. In a crowded but good neighborhood not far from the city center, with plenty of cheap restaurants and food stands nearby.

I was only here for one night, and it wasn't very busy. Comfy beds, clean facilities, rooms seemed very spacious for the amount of beds. Night reception can be spotty (wasn't there when I first arrived). Friendly staff, they took the guests out for a beer to a "hidden" bar off the main square. Good Wifi connection. Only 3 bathroom/showers so I can see how these can get busy. About a 20 min walk from the bus/train station, 10 minute walk to the Old Town. Overall a fine hostel, no complaints.

After the overnight train from hell, we were pretty spent. As with most hotels or hostels, our beds weren't ready at the early time that we stumbled through the doors. The staff was still very welcoming and the common area was very comfortable and fun. There's free WiFi and a few computers. As it turns out, our rooms were also ready two hours earlier than they had initially said, so we got to put our things down a little earlier. Yayy.

Anyway, the facilities were pretty nice. We got a private room at Hostel Mostel, so we weren't actually on location but a couple of blocks away. The facilities were clean enough and in our private room, at least, we had a pretty nice kitchen set up.

They do free breakfast and a dinner in the evening. The people there are friendly and they have a fast and relatively cheap laundry service. All in all, it was a good experience.
