Stayed here as was only going to be in room for 3 hours due to early flight so no point getting dearer hotel
Well located
No lift and 3 flights of stairs up so not for people with bad legs
Great wifi
Room ok
With double and a bunk bed
Nice staff
Use of nearby bathroom washing machine and full kitchen if needed
Was gone for breakfast
They will do an airport transfer for 3000 dram

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We stayed at this hostel twice during our trip to the mountains: one night before and two nights after. The location is superb, it's within the walking distance from all the attractions. The staff is as helpful as it's possible, all the facilities are clean. It really feels like home, such a nice place.

Charming hostel on one of most traffic streats in town. Staff are relaxed. Central area is very plesant. Rooms are clear, with two little disanvantages (no garbage can, broken curtain stick on window, and one big advantage (new comfortable bed).
As I had my share of unconfortable beds in Caucasus region, this one was medicine for me.
Breakfast was simple and cheapest as possible.
But for that price this hostel is a great place to stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

We were nicely surprised by the service this tiny place provided. Very friendly staff. They were approachable and accommodating. They gave us good advice as to where to eat and what to see in town.

Our room was clean and tidy and most importantly not crammed. The kitchen and the living room were spacious. We felt an overall atmosphere of home.

You can't beat it -- the location is central. We were on one of the central streets in the heart of downtown Yerevan. There were many small stores around. We really liked this a lot.
