That hostel is a nightmare. We booked a 16-bed dorm but were given a 27-bed dorm. That was not due to the fact that they were overbooked but rather because the owner is a greedy piece of s*** who didn't see the need to change that information online. His excuse was the fact that it was high season - so why not double the capacity up at the guests expenses?! The room was smelly and totally overstuffed with people. No chance to get a compensation from the owner given!

Pretty decent hostel. The 16 bed dorm is actually a 25 bed dorm (I counted, it's huge) but it actually isn't that bad, no smells and it has AC so I slept very well nonetheless. There is a chilling area with tables and such in the interior court which is nice to meet people. It is pretty well located, not very far from the beach and the center and close to a supermarket. I had a nice stay, it isn't the best hostel in the world but does the job.
Nice courtyard, nice staff and nice atmosphere. Recommend.
Good social atmosphere in the backyard in the evenings although the staff didn't come across as overly helpful but there was always someone on reception. Could do with one or two more toilets as it was quite busy in the morning.
Staff was amazing, all of them are so friendly, and one of the girls actually took us out to a national park where we went hiking. Location is perfect, right by everything you need to see in Batumi. Security was excellent, atmosphere made it very easy to make new friends with the main "lobby" outdoors with countless tables and chairs. It was very clean as well. It's a great value for your money, but in comparison to the rest of hostels in Georgia I was hoping it'd be a little less expensive.
I stayed in the 16 bed dorm which was actually more than 16 beds. But it worked very well. The location is great, just off of the main Centre street. Free access to a washing machine was a big bonus. Staff were able to assist with all my requests. Enjoyed my stay in batumi despite the carnival approach to the beautiful natural black sea.
This is an excellent hostel in a good position and with an easy walk to everything. The staff were very helpful.
The girls at the desk were helpful; location is also good - right near boardwalk and spots to eat and sightsee.
Very helpfull and friendly staff! Special Thanks to 'Nina' - the sunshine of the Hostel!
Great place and very well located. Nice courtyard out back.
Nice little hostel. Little bit basic, but clean. The staff is nice, location perfect.
Is a normal hostel, I went during the low season and I had a 25 beds dorm just for me. The staff gave me a wrong information to go to my next destination.

The only problem was the shower, since it was hard to regulate water - either boiling hot or freezing cold.
the dorm is very noisy, guests in the courtyard talk and drink well past 12 midnight. Staff members access the dormatory as if it were an open area. The toilet and shower in the dorm area are dirty and old.
Excellent location. I got a different room than booked but didn't mind it much (booked ensuite but got a private room with shared bathroom ). Also, in the last minute I had to cancel my second night and they didn't charge me for it. The bed was large, comfortable and the room quiet. The only issue was hygiene - the bathrooms on my floor were filthy. Also - they should invest in window curtains as the neighbouring houses are just a few meters away and the toilette is right by the window...

Perfect location, nice staff, recommend it!
good location, dirty and smelly, need some facilities improvements, helpful staff (for extra charge:))
Excellent hostel, enjoyed my stay here. When I booked I got an email confirming my reservation and the price, which added a 4 Euro service charge, however when I actually got to the hostel and checked in and paid, there was no service charge, so I don't know what that was about. The hostel is really good though and in an excellent location - recommended.
