Hostel in the centre but on 6th floor and is difficult to go up and down especially with lagguage. Also when i booked there were written "in room with 8 people" but when i arrived this room was for 14-15 people. Kitchen is big and you can cook. Free tea and coffee. 2 showers in first floor and 1 in second. When you take shower can be less cold water so you need to do it with little bit hot water. Guys who works nice, always try to help.

The hostel is on the 6th floor, so some exercise to get here with luggage. But way worth the price, the spacious rooms and kitchen! Clean with lots of bathrooms, laundry, WiFi, lockers, air con and big fridge :) so close to republic square :)

June 2018: Either they didn´t finish the building or they will tear it down soon - the atmosphere is apocalyptic: Located on the 6th floor without an elevator, staircase like a temporary construction, probably no other inhabited apartments in the house, gas smell when you walk up. The "hostel" itself rather seems like an abandoned apartment which was converted into a hostel. But the location is central, and prices are low.

I have checked in to Rafael Hostel in downtown Yerevan, it is an easy, walking access to everything — restaurants, libraries, museums, monuments, pubs, parks, shopping complex, flee market and grocery stores. It is also by far one of the cleanest hostels I have been to. The staffs are pleasant, friendly and easy to get along with. Shower rooms and toilets are well-maintained, floor are mopped daily at 8am, bins are kept tidy and emptied every now and then. The room price is affordable for leisure traveler and backpacker alike. The only downside of this hostel is that it is placed at the 6th floor of the building and they do not have a lift, which, for someone who’s as asthmatic as I am, would be a struggle. Once you go up, it’ll be hard to go down. On a good note, it is a good cardio exercise as it will burn all the beers that I took the whole day I am outside. Anyway, I checked in through Airbnb but you can also find them on booking.com.
