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.

    We just stayed for 1 night and would have loved to stay for longer. Its such a big hostel (almost a hotel) with amazing reception, bar, rooms, common room, outside seating. Just perfect!! Don't think twice. You can't get a better place to stay at this price.

    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.

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Downtown Forest Hostel. The single room with ensuite bathroom is very spacious and a great value for money. For breakfast there is coffee and tea and you can order a croissant for 1,70 €. The hostel is located at a 15 minutes walking distance from the old town of Vilnius.

    Solid location in walking distance to Old Town and Uzupis. Nice facilities. Good backyard bar and grill area. Stayed in one of the cabins which was super cool and cozy. Definitely attracts more of the camper/family types vs. a party youth hostel vibe.

    A great experience in central Vilnius. Absolutely no issue with the staff or facilities whatsoever. I only had the unfortunate situation that the food I left in the shared fridge was either taken, or thrown away, even it was clearly marked in a bag. This does not ruin my experience of the place. I will definitely go back whenever I'll be back in Vilnius.

    A bit of a walk from everything but it’s a pleasant one. An Uber to the center is 3 euro or less, so it’s worth the trade off, but keep in mind that thanks to construction as well as the location of the hostel down a walking path on one side, it can be confusing to find via google maps. Uber drivers got confused both picking me up and dropping me off. Hopefully it will get easier as construction changes. Comfy beds, nice outdoor common area, good coffee in the AM.
