Normally we do not stay in hostels like the Glide, but we decided to try based on the terriffic reviews on these pages, and we were not disappointed. The hostel is very well situated, close to the rapid (!) metro-system of Yerevan, a couple of stops from the centre..- A bit difficult to find, our taxi-driver gave up. But with the directons from their web-page it was easy.
The hostel is in a private house, and you will be treated like a long-time friend. The daughter, Anna, speaks very well English and has a lot of interesting information/thoughts about Armenia and the world beyond.
The Glide is a very cheap place to stay, and you will get a lot from your money. Breakfast is good, and you get to meet other travellers (of all ages and nationalities). The rooms are very basic and clean.
This is not a five-star hotel, but because of the hospitality and generosity of the family, the basic facilities and the location (when you have found it), the Glide deserves five stars in my world.
