I stayed at Why Not for a few nights as a solo traveller in Georgia last week. First of all, a disclaimer to address the minority of negative reviews on this site: Why Not is a cheap, sociable, homely hostel filled with (mostly) young-ish backpackers. There seemed to be a quiet party vibe most evenings I was there (nothing OTT!).... More

The Hostel was good average, The design was cool, so many souvenir on the wall, on the shell just make the hostel so cute.

we reached the Why Not hostel after a month in Georgia, all the staff made us feel at home, and helped in every way (information regarding transportation. post office, shared trips etc.). theplace offers a family experience with other travellers to share tips and get suggesions. i highly reccomend you visit and meet these lovely people

I booked 'Why Not' because of the great reviews & Lonely Planet claimed it a "must see". It felt more like a friend's messy apartment (that friend who has the party house & always has people moving in & out) than a hostel. Everything seemed dirty, smelly, & cluttered. There doesn't seem to be a designated cleaning person, which must... More

A crowded hostel just off Rustaveli Street between 2 metro stations on walking distance. Great place to meet fellow travellers as there a big common area and morning breakfast included. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Mattress is comfortable. Night check in available.

Stayed here for two nights. It was brutally hot in Georgia, and this was a few days after the floods. AC would have been nice, but otherwise, the hostel was great. Good service, good people, good rooms, and good bathrooms. The location is fantastic, with many good bars and restaurants and tourist sites in walking distance. Free parking and WIFI... More

I stayed in this hostel with a friend for two nights, one night in a private room with a double bed, and one night in the dorm. Both were okay. However, the hostel is not very clean and also has a somewhat creepy atmosphere. For some reason, I felt like a few weird guys were hanging around the common area... More

Some nice people but a bit of a weird feeling in re the people who had been there for weeks or months (!). The guy who cleans, does not clean. He himself stinks. Has the same clothes on day & nite. (Disgusting!) Bathrooms smell and lack ventilation. No fresh air at all. IF u meet nice people, it's ok to... More
