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

    A perfect hostel doesn't exi- BAM comes Downtown Forest. It's unbelievable what they offer. Talk about bang for the buck. Spacious premises with a beautiful and cosy interior. Amazing backyard with trees, hammocks, bbq, a stage for bands. Huge, clean, perfectly stocked kitchen. It feels more like an expensive guest house in the countryside rather than a hostel in the city. I don't think I'm ever staying anywhere else in Vilnius.

    The hostel had the best atmosphere I've ever experienced, the staff was super nice and the house was clean and comfy. It's 15min by foot to Oldtown and to Uzupis area it's only 2min. I definitely recommend staying there!

    I've had an excellent stay at Downtown Forest Hostel. Lovely staff, great location (particularly enjoy walking from there into town, rather than being in the centre of town, so as to see more of Vilnius) and environment. One of my favourite hostels ever.

    Myself and my friend stayed here for two nights (14th-16th May.) Lovely hostel in a quiet location with a nice chilled atmosphere and within walking distance of the city. Staff were very nice and beds were comfy and overall very clean. If I was really picky, the soap dispenser on the first floor was not topped up and would be ideal to have more toilets, but minor things, otherwise we thoroughly recommend. We would definitely return here!

    Staying @ downtown forest was a big win! Staff were fantastic tending to any needs. The kitchen and common area in the basement is great! We stayed on a Saturday night and they had a festival/concert night on which was fantastic. The hostel is a 15 minute walk from the train/bus station. The old town is a 10 minute stroll away. The only negative I have is each morning I went to use the toilet and the toilet paper was depleted.. only a handful of toilets between many guests. All in all ♥️

    Was very quiet which was nice and relaxing. Nice and close to the bohemian part of the city. Would recommend if you’re needing a few quiet nights from travelling.

    A great option for the summer, specially for camping. I wish I could return one day just to enjoy the hostel facilities outside, like barbecue, bar, etc.

    This hostel had friendly staff and the outdoor space would be really nice if the weather was better. The hostel was quite far away from anything and the walk back at night is quite dark. There was also usually mud/dirt on the floor in both the showers and toilets. For what you pay and would expect from a "camping" hostel this place is fine.
