Downtown Forest Hostel & Camping is located down the hill of the very city center, in the artistic part of Vilnius called Uzupis. While walking downhill, the spirit goes up because of the rustic and warm neighborhood 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 (10 min), river and ponds (3 min). And of course republic of Uzupis just meters away. We call ourselves a forest, because we are located in a big house which is surrounded by trees and a garden. Green is all around our cozy chateau, 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 "Wolf's bar and grill rental" terrace. You can grill your food while sitting in the terrace. Camping ground is on the other side. We have 5 places for Campers and big green area for tents with all the facilities. This is not a standard cold spiritless hotel. We (the staff) make this hostel 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. TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice 2015!

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Having stayed in Downtown Forest hostel once, whenever I go back to Vilnius I always choose this option. Lovely atmosphere, kind staff and great location are one of the main reasons, though I also choose it because it has amazing croissants for breakfast (chocolate ones), backyard is beautiful and it is perfect spot for getting a bit of work done while sipping wine. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for more authentic place to stay and appreciate nature.

This hostel is super cozy. The staff is very nice and welcoming and helped my find the perfect program for my stay in Vilnius. In the morning there is free coffee and tea and you can order some fresh croissant from a French baker. It's very close to the Republic of Užupis and to the old town of Vilnius. I can definitely recommend you go there.

Great atmosphere. Just at the edge of the city but still in walking distance of the city centre. I remember drinking a good flass of red wine in the tree garden. It was a atypical but very authentic and nice experience.
