Patrick Burke thinks…

"Fantastic deal, with the meals and the beer the Value for money is incredible. I have stayed in many worse hotels which claim to be three star. The only place worth considering in Sofia."

Liked: Great Hostel. We had a private room so we stayed in another building not too far from the main hostel, it was clean and spacious with good showers and wifi. Every morning we walked to the hostel for a fantastic breakfast (waffles, eggs, meats, cheeses...), there was also an evening meal, both of these activities brought all the hostel together and was a great way to meet people. There is also a free pool table in the common room (not the best) again a good way to meet new friends.

Disliked: Given a choice I wouldn't make the hostel any bigger.

Liked: Everything - one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Definitely the only place to give free breakfast AND free dinner (and beer!) And it wasn't typical hostel food - this was great stuff. The common area and hostel overall are beautiful, clean, and inviting. Great place to meet other travelers. Friendly and helpful staff. Not a bad word to say.

Disliked: Not really a dislike - but you should know that if you book a private room you'll be in a separate apartment a 3 minute walk away.

Liked: Location was excellent. Staff were very friendly and gave a great introduction to the city including maps and places to eat/see. Free breakfasts and dinners were excellent, lots of healthy options. The private room we stayed in was a couple minutes walk from the main hostel, and it was a beautiful place to stay.

Liked: This was a great hostel! Staff where super friendly and helpful, breakfast and dinner they provide was amazing for what you pay, they also organise a free pub crawl which you only pay for the drinks you buy (and drinks are so cheap) I would defs recommend this place!

Disliked: The only thing Is there were 2 showers and 3 toilets for 16 people, not Ideal but they were good showers! Also I felt a bit unsafe around the streets near the hostel late at night but if your with a group then you would be fine.

Liked: Very good location, easy access from the train station but also walking distance to all the sites. Excellent value for money considering the rooms and facilities are good and clean, plus you get free breakfast AND dinner?! It's nothing special but free food is free food when you're a traveller!

Disliked: The room was a bit noisy due to the tram being right outside but that's the only real negative, I'd say the positives outweighed this! And they do to run all night so it's not too bad.

Liked: If you backpack around Europe and have not been to a Hostel Mostel you do not have a complete view of the best Hostels in Europe. Prices are very good (lowest price for a single room i have seen) Buffet breakfast and dinner with a beer are included in the low price. What really separates this hostel is the atmosphere. Young Bulgarians work here and do their best to help you see the city. They always try to tell you the lowest cost alternative. If something needs fixing they try to address it asap. Bring your own beer food no problem. Free pub crawl. Free wifi and computers. And a fun friendly group to talk to from all over. As my friend beside me just said. Its a great hostel it desearves a good review.

Liked: The locations is very good! It is like 2 minutes walk from the center. Also they offer free luggage storage after you check out (so if you checked out and still want to enjoy the city before your departure you can leave the luggage at the hostel and it won't be in your way). There is free all inclusive breakfast (and it really is rich), There is very good wi-fi and also computers (in case you don't have a device with you ) and also they have printer. The shower is very nice (not like other hostels). The staff is very helpful and nice and they would assist you with getting around the town. Last but not least the building seems to be a very old building with a nice history so it is just a great opportunity to stay in such a place at such a low price.

Disliked: The shared room is actually 20 beds (not 16 as mentioned). They beds are acually mats places on the floor. The room is in an attic and it can get very hot. They have an AC device (doesn't look like the usual AC) so it stays turned on during the night. If you choose this option you'd better choose a bed closer to the door.
