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

    I stayed at the hostel for 5 nights for work and it was an amazing. It has a wonderful atmosphere, and thr biggest plus is the extensive outdoor area. I will definitely stay here if I am back in Vilnius.

    Nothing but praise for this place. Great spot to be in, nice vibes with campsite and hostel people on the property, they even organised a music performance which we could attend as guests. Staff tries to help and facilitate wherever they can, really friendly.

    Very good hostel with friendly staff! Close to the nature and to uzupis republic which is the best district in vilnius! The only problem was with the water. Sometimes the flow stopped.. And if you are in the middle of a bath the problem is bigger.

    05/07/2020-07/07/2020 - I had a very pleasant stay at the downtown forest hostel. The location is absolutely amazing, in walkable distance to the center and to the bus stop. The ambiance was very calm and the hostel was kept super clean. I would totally recommend the hostel if you’re traveling solo or just wanna hangout with some friends too. -Srutha

    Not so near downtown but good enough, not far for walk. Because it also is a camping atmosphere is special. Locals come to celebrate whatever, unfortunately they are groups imposible to join. Coded door locking system at the beginning is annoying. Rooms are huge. It was a new experience, I recommend, something else something new. Not for that one that looks downtown hostel with crazy social area.

    Although the mattresses are thin, the dorm is spacious and common areas are well equipped. It is perfectly located on the border of old town, has its own outdoor area with hammocks, barbecue area, bar and pleasant atmosphere. I staid for 2 nights extra just to relax in the outside area, it feelt as being in a forest camp.

    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! ♥️

    The hostels is also a bar and is frequented but a lot of groups coming from outisde the hostel. It can be difficult socialising and even feel like you're the outsider at your "own" hostel.

    Very Good

    location is good and liked the bar and the whole area outside. But as there is no comfy common room it is hard to get in touch with other travellers. And the bed was terrible. It was also very loud. I think there are better hostels in Vilnius.
