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

    Amazing location and a really cute place, really feels like you are in a forest. Only problem I had was that there did not seem to be enough toilets, especially in the morning the queue was very long. Toilets and showers were also a bit dirty all the time, probably because people staying outside in the tents dragged mud in. Very well equipped kitchen and an amazing yard with hammocks, fire pits and so on.

    An urban oasis. The private room was very homely & comfortable, with thoughtful touches here & there. The fresh croissants were delicious! Good location - little noise during the night. There was only one washing machine & the dryer wasn’t working. A lot of locals come here to camp so the social atmosphere was lacking for travellers but I didn’t mind. The only thing was one of the staff members gave off a vibe that they didn’t want to be there & that every encounter with clients was troublesome.

    Super friedly place. The room was great. The garden and the wooden tables super charming. My only negative point is the kitchen: no oil or salt available, the fridges were dirty and the frying pan old and damaged. We have to keep our food in given plastic bags, which is not great from an ecological point of view: I would suggest paper labels like all the other hostels we stayed in. Otherwise, I would really recommend the place!

    Only issue was that I had to change my room 1 of the 2 nights I stayed there. If I was to stay like a week I wouldn't mind, but it was only 2 days. Also on the 2nd floor there aren't enough toilets and showers and in the morning we had to queue for them.

    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.

    Very nice place and really nice staff. Some of the showers and things were a bit broken, but once I told them they were quick to address it. I wish they had a bit better space to facilitate conversation between people though. People who stayed there isn't really talk much

    Super cute hostel on the outskirts of town, the back area is nice with the lights and seating. Big hangout spot for locals at night which is fine but there wasn't a great social atmosphere in the hostel. Kitchen a bit dated and lacking but okay. Staff helpful. Getting into the dorms is a task as you need two hands with the code and then other knob so tricky regardless if you've been drinking or not lol but would stay again

    Very Good

    I stayed here as a solo female traveller and although the hostel seems very social due to the large outdoor area, this is used by locals and big families who are camping. I didn't really feel comfortable socialising in that area, maybe more events could be put on for just hostel guests to help us feel more included? My room (8 bed mixed dorm) was clean but the toilets were a little smelly. Security is a bit lax - main door was left open at all times although the rooms do have a key code.

    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.
