Hi everyone. Our group spend two month in Armenia last year. All the time we lives in Rafael hostel. We spend most the time working hard in the "fields", so late evening or night or even early moment we went back to the hostel to sleep. Every time we have warm shower, dishes to eat (even our national Ukrainian dishes).... More

When booking at some of the largest networks of hostels in Europe, I haven't seen the comfort that Rafael Hostel provide for their guests. Instead of using the space for additional beds and... More

Rafael Hostel is a great place. Dorms are clean with good bathroom facilities. Breakfast is included and very tasty. Coffee and tea are for free all day long. So, I'd say that's ample reason to go there. However, what makes Rafael Hostel really stand out to me are the beauty of the central interior (one of the best looking hostels... More

Rafael's a very fancy Hostel to a reasonable price. When entering the hostel it feels like entering a villa. The living room is huge and spacious and also the kitchen provides more than enough space to prepare everything you want. It's fully equipped. More than one time I was invited by the lovely staff of the hostel to have dinner... More

I've been to Rafael Hostel twice, once in 2011 and again in 2013. The first time, I was travelling with friends, and we ended up staying at Rafael a bit by chance. And what we found was: a cozy, extremely clean and nice place, looking more like a family house than like a hostel; very nice and friendly people; and,... More
