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 think Kudos to the people who came up with this idea. The place was wonderful, the staff so very helpful and they are the kindest people. I think the renting of grills is a great idea and I have never in my travels experienced such a unique concept... Congratulations on the wonderful place and best of luck.. If I do visit Vilnius again with a bigger company I am sure gonna book grills for the entire weekend.. Thank you guys for accommodating us!!!!

    Everything is in walking distance, but it feels removed enough from all the touristy spots. Love the atmosphere and the small back forest. Beds were comfy.

    The atmosphere was very friendly and I loved the outdoor terrace with the hammocks. The dorms are very bright and there's free towels with every bed. The floors were quite dirty (dust balls in rooms, lots of crumbs etc in the dining room). Overall definitely now my preferred hostel in Vilnius!

    In general good hostel, but not providing all facilities, having in list. Better to call and ask. As example parking only for trailers. You have to leave car somewhere outside.

    Downtown Forest was a nice place to stay, I especially enjoyed the yard with hammocks and a bar. The rooms themselves were nothing special, the beds were basic and clean. The toilets could have been cleaner and the staff was kind.

    A different vibe with its outdoor bar and campgrounds, with older campers and families. The price can't be beat and is only a few minutes by foot to the Old Town.

    Pretty alright place to stay, definitely a unique hostel atmosphere due to it also having a camper area. Gorgeous terrace in the back that becomes a hub for locals in the evening. Because the events on the terrace can be a bit noisy one would go to the common area in the basement but it's just not very inviting. All in all good for the price. Juozas at the check-in desk was very friendly and helpful!

    Very Good

    Definitely felt more like I was at a campsite but just happened to have a bed instead of a tent. Nothing was very clean, but it was a cute location (in the artsy part of Vilnius) and the room was very nice, large and comfortable.

    Potentially a cool concept, but they completely miss the mark. The hostel is horribly dirty. There are hairs and dirt on the shower walls and floor, the hallway floors are very dirty and dusty and the one bathroom was missing toilet paper. The front door was always open and they let anyone just walk in and around the hostel. Although one staff member was somewhat helpful, one was shockingly apathetic and unhelpful. It’s also in a weird spot that’s fully under construction right now.
