Good location in the Center of Old Tbilisi. Still a raten quite neighbourhood. Everything you need within 2 minutes walk. Very nice, helpfull staff. Privats could use some extra ventilation.


First of all: terribly dirty, it does not look like on the pictures, staff is a disaster, only good location and nothing more, loud music during the night for drunken staff and a few kids. DO NOT GO THERE !!!


Dirty rooms, ugly bathrooms, nice location, awesome building, drunk staff.


We stayed there just a night. The room was twin with shared bathroom. The location is good and not that much dangerous. It is easy to get there. The room and bathroom was a kind of clean. The most freaking thing was that the room was too humid and next day I felt that smell in my hair. And there was no light and sockets working. We used lamp and power strip for our needs.


Tbilisi Friends Hostel is one of the best hostels i have ever been. In the heart of old Tbilisi, in the coolest Jewish building is located friends hostel. There is incredibly friendly staff always ready to help you. Special thanks yo Ms. Liana. If you are looking for hostel, when you want meet lots of cool travelers, have a glass of red wine on their balcony and feel the city - Tbilisi Friends Hostel is the best option.

Great location!!! nice view and friendly atmosphere...


I stayed here three times its a great location and a great price . I found the staff to be ok not much atmosphere but if you just need a place to stay with a good location I would really recommend this hostel .


The hostel is located right in the Old Town! There is free laundry and hair dryer, well-equipped kitchen, the beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are relatively clean (as for a hostel, they are clean; as for my personal standard - not). There is a great balcony overlooking the city. The staff is not best-informed, though ("where can i exchange money?" "you can, you can"). We took a car from STAR rental company, that was amazing, too (http://carrentalgeorgia.ge), all great and easy with them.


Great location nice hostel I stayed three nights


Really nice atmosphere!


in short you get what you pay for


Pretty good place, with super friendly staff, and a bar. It's a bit of a hike, and kind of hard to find the first time, but the atmosphere is fun and laid back.


One of the best and cheapest hostels I've stayed at. A great place to meet people, although it's definitely not a 'party hostel'. The staff are all fantastic and the location couldn't be better.


We had a really great time at Tbilisi Friends Hostel and even returned there twice during our trip through Georgia (we could leave the luggage there). The location cant't be better and you can easily reach sights/restaurants/bars by walk. The hostel is quite small (10 beds + 2 private rooms) but with a large common room with a kitchen and bar where people hang out and easily get to know each other. You can also chill out at the terrace in front of the house or at the balcony with a great view.


Had a great time here. Highly recommended, central to everything. Lovely staff Thad care about your comfort.


The atmosphere is very friendly, the staff really seem to care for their guests. WiFi, short walking distance to some good restaurants and bars, hot baths and to the ropeway. There is a problem though: the dormitory is very noisy as it's in the middle of everything - people walk through it when they go to balcony, bathrooms, reception, private rooms. The private room smelled moldy (problem with air ventilation), but it's a bit quieter at least. Other than that it's very good.
