This hostel is good value for money and location is great. Cleaness is average - shared showers gets broken and overflooded, yet bed sheets were clean and room as well. No windows in the private rooms - so the fan needs to work whole night to get air, so you are able to sleep.

nice hostel, very nice staff (Georgij xxx), could be a bit cleaner unfortunately and maybe bathrooms should be fixed (one shower frame was leaking) but the staff is great and extremely helpful! I would choose dorms not double rooms because there are no windows in the doubles.


great atmosphere, host and staff!

Friends Hostel is in a very nice location in a picturesque house in Old Town Tbilisi. I would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Tbilisi as a great place to visit around the city and get a good night's sleep in their spacious dorm room ventilated with fans and with a door open to the outside to let in fresh air during the very hot weather lately.


Good cheap hostel in an excellent location. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are pretty much impossible to keep clean/dry. We chose this partly because of the "party hostel" tag but there wasn't really anything going on while we were there (I guess it just depends on the other guests) - on the bright side that meant that it was easy to sleep!


Amazing place! Wonderful people.


Nice hostel but more for the partying type. Theres little consideration for the time of night when there should be quite when people are sleeping. I was woken at 02:30 when a group of 6 checked in with all lights and talking; it lasted until 03:15. The following morning I was woken at same time with music playing at full volume below. Door between the balcony & dorm was often left wide open even in the middle of the night. Staff are nice with some local knowledge. Close to shops and amenities.


It was a great sojourn, what a pity that I couldn't stay more. The hostel in a beautiful house is quite unique. Everything is made to make you feel at home. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the location could't be better, thirty second from the main historical place with a 24 hour excellent georgian restaurant that I would recommand. In all, it could be twice the price it would still be good value for money. I hope I will come back
