Property Description

Downtown Forest Property & Camping is located down the hill the city center, in the artistic part of Vilnius called Užupis. Walking down, the spirit goes up because of the rustic and warm neighborhoods around. Main tourist spots are within a slow-walk distance: City hall (10 min), Cathedral (15 min), Bus & train station (20 min). Plenty of green areas around: newly opened park (7 min), river and ponds (3 min). And of course republic of Užupis just meters away.

We call ourselves a forest, because we are located in a big house is surrounded by trees and a garden. Green is all around our not so fancy yet cozy chateu, as we call it. And the location is very downtown indeed. Peace and nature is what we have plenty of everywhere. Be sure, the rooms are not overcrowded.

Outside the house we have a terrace for relaxing, and a camping ground just on the other side.

This is not a standard cold spiritless hotel. We (the staff) make this property a place where we would like to stay. We all are passionate about traveling and about our city. We treat our guests just what we would like to be treated when we are traveling. View House Rules

    This hostel is super cozy. The staff is very nice and welcoming and helped my find the perfect program for my stay in Vilnius. In the morning there is free coffee and tea and you can order some fresh croissant from a French baker. It's very close to the Republic of Užupis and to the old town of Vilnius. I can definitely recommend you go there.

    The staff were very helpful and friendly. It would have been nice to have a locker but given the time of year and foot traffic that was not a big issue. I enjoy walking and this location was perfect for havinf a nice walk into the town.

    Cozy stay in a quiet area of Vilnius, but only a ~10-15 minute walk from the city (there is also a bus stop immediately outside). The staff were very friendly -- the receptionist working on my last day saw that I had an early flight and opened the coffee bar 40 minutes early for me. :) There were quite a few older guests there though -- the other people in my dorm room were easily twice my age, which was very strange.

    A really nice and cozy hostel really close to Uzupis district. It looked a little dead when I was there, but fair enough: it was the very beginning of March. I bet it looks and feels much more fun during warmer part of the year. Especially considering the camping area and the outside area in general! ♥️

    Enjoyed my stay overall. Although I was provided with a door code to enter my room, the room door would open without me having to use the code. Staff were friendly. Showers and toilets were clean. Each bed came with its own sockets, towels and bed linen. I visited during sub-zero temperatures, however the room was always nice and cozy. Gladfully provides with ear buds that helped me get the good sleep I needed there.

    Lovely little place in a very nice area of a wonderful city. Away from the buzz of the city centre, this place is perfect when you seek some peace and quiet after a long day of walking through the city. I'd love to come back in the summer, set up my tent, hire a barbeque and chill with some great live music!

    A bit away from the tourist area but very comfortable place. Atmosphere of this place and guests are very comfortable and I have no complaints. They will charge 1euro/night without notice though they show "tax included" on Hostel World upon booking. Totally, I highly recommend.

    Very Good

    Location is nice, as well as the whole concept of the hostel/camping. The girl at the reception when we arrived was reeally nice, but in the other day there was someone else who was very unfriendly. The cleanliness was a down point: showers were ok, but toilets were quite unclean (and were the only place to brush the teeth).

    The hostel is 15 minutes away from the gate to the old city. The location is lovely, with long stairs going down to the building and a porch. Also the inside is cosy. We have a code to input every time we want to get into the room, into the hostel and even OUT of it. The locker in the room is not big enough to put your suitcase inside. The mattress is so thin you can feel the metal grid underneath. And there's only one toilet for the whole floor. Plus the staff isn't always helpful.
