Lonely Planet review
The famous Sofia-based Hostel Mostel has become Târnovo's biggest, with clean, very modern dorm rooms and doubles with sparkling bathrooms. It's just 150m from Tsarevets Fortress – good for exploring there, but a long walk from downtown (free bus/train pickup is possible). As in Sofia, there's free spaghetti and a glass of beer thrown in.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel Mostel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Veliko Târnovo.
