I cannot recommend this hostel enough--it's located smack in the center of Sofia, and is in perfect walking distance of the capital's major sights and entertainment (plus public transit). The owner, Mario, is happy to recommend a number of excellent restaurants and night spots, and if you inquire about various tours available (free, bike, foodie, Rila, etc.), he knows just where to send you. What I appreciate the most, however, is the relaxed vibe of the place. There are a variety of other more "party-hardy" places to stay in Sofia (which are great if you're looking for something of the sort), but Lavele's appeal lies in its hospitable atmosphere, reliable staff, and the fact that you can get a good, comfortable night's sleep there. It's great for small groups and solo travelers alike. As a bonus, there's also homemade bread with breakfast. :-)
