As there was no key for the dorm room, it remained unlocked all the time. So, in theory, everybody can enter the room. Moreover, as this is not a true hostel, it lacks a bit in atmosphere (and common areas to hang out in - even though there is a small sitting area at reception). The WiFi sometimes did not work (and never worked in the dorm room itself, only in the reception area). Still, I had a nice stay.

Staff could not find my online booking, but honored my booking confirmation nonetheless without any need for discussion. Due to humidity, rooms are a bit stuffy, but it did cool down at night, so I was able to sleep quite well.

The hostel feels like a home away from home. The owner, Maia, is very helpful in organizing your trip. It was rather quiet with just a handful of guests when I was there, so if you are after partying in a big group, look elsewhere. For a comfortable, relaxed stay in Tbilisi, this hostel is ideal. I will (and in fact already did) stay again.

The downstairs rooms have a bit of a bunker feeling at first. That said, they are brightly lit and spacious. The beds are comfortable, and the (few private) showers are some of the best I have ever seen in a hostel.

The hostel kitchen could definitely need a bit more equipment (especially some smaller pots). Other than that, I had a nice stay. However, be aware that you are staying in an old building, and do not expect everything (or, more precisely, anything) to be brand new.

If the mattresses a tick more comfortable, and maybe a cooking plate available, everything would be perfect. That said, I had a great stay thanks to the awesome host Marin who is very helpful, has lots of tips on things to do away from the tourist hordes, and really did everything in his power to make everyone's stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. On top of that: very clean, good lockers, great location just outside the old town - excellent value for money, and highly recommended!

The kitchen might be in need of a few more pots and pans (it seems to be fitted out for campers who bring their own gear), but the location is hard to beat: Stepping out of your room, and looking up to beautiful mountains is just fabulous!

The owner is very friendly and helpful, and always there for questions. Rooms are nice and very clean. It can be very quiet (I was the only guest staying there at that time), so meeting other travellers might not be that easy. Very good for a relaxing stay, though. Rental bike are not for the sportish (three gears, backpedalling brake), but functional.

Excellent location, but lacking in atmosphere. To me, this hostel was simply too large - you tend to meet lots of people, but you do not really get to know anyone.

Friendly staff, very comfortable beds, and very conveniently located directly next to the bus station (but still reasonably quiet). Some large lockers in the rooms would be nice, though.

Let's start with the (only) negative aspect: The 6-bed dorm is separated from the staircase only by a foldable screen - you have to rely on the other guests being considerate at night (which they were, in my case). Other than that, all was perfect: A very friendly and helpful owner with lots of tips about the city (and beyond), extremely comfortable beds, very spacious lockers, a nice kitchen/common room area - this hostel is much more cozy than the other (considerably larger) ones in town!

Yes, it is a bit further away from the beach and Old Town. However, the owner Saki and his family more than make up for this. They are genuinely friendly and very helpful. I also enjoyed the great (and cheap!) food. Saki also took me and some other guests on a boat trip to Sveti Stefan and Sveti Nikola (highly recommendable).

It might be a bit strange, as the hostel is inside an appartment building (without a kitchen!), but the location is hard to fault, and the staff is very helpful. Free internet & laundry and the free dinner offer (limited menu at a nearby Japanese restaurant for just 2$ tip) makes it a great place to stay.

Good for spending one or two nights on a short stop-over in L.A. For a longer stay, it is a bit out of the way.
