When I was there, this hostel is still renovating. But I didn't heat any noise and I believe, after renovation, the hostel will be much more good looking.
The people there are very nice. They try their best to make you feeling comfortable.
The place has big place for parking, It is very good for traveler with car. The price for backpacker is also very cheaper. I was in a single room, it costs only 14 euro.
There is a kitchen where you can cook your food. But i was so busy and never use it. The shower is only at groundfloor, but the place is very big.
The best thing is, they have a fireplace by the reception. After shower, you can sit in front of there for a while. It will make you very warm and comfortable. At same time, you can watch TV, Video or talking with other peopel.
The only thing which they can improved is, making a map from train station to hostel.
They said the hostel is only 10 minutes to old town. Actually there is really a short way to hostel. But there is too much turns. Some time you don't which direction you should turn. So i just give up and use another easy way, but costs me almost 30 minutes back to hostel. In the last time, I find that short way, it is really shorter :-)
So I think, the hostel should make a own map with PDF form to show peopel how to quickly be there. For Backpqcker, better step by step with picture to show how to turn. Otherwise will be less help.
All above are my experiences, and I hope it will be helpful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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!
