Envoy Hostel and Tours
Ranked #1 of 206 Specialty Lodging in Yerevan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 29, 2010

I stayed for 4 nights in the 4-bedded dorm, with no window, in the basement. It was terrible and extremely difficult to sleep since no proper ventilation, so do avoid or ask for a one with window. Also the bathrooms in the basement don't have good ventilation.
However, I have never come across such nice, professional and helpful staff as here at envoy hostel. The breakfast is basic tea/coffee jam/butter/cheese bread, but the lady who organizes is so sweet and wonderful.The location is fantastic and the management makes you feel very welcome and relax. I would defintely return to this hostel, if not for the dungy basement dorm, but for staff and the people who welcome here. The price is the same as any Youth hostel in the west-Europe.

Incredibly friendly and helpful staff, they even complimented me on my dreadful Armenian and helped me practise. It's great value, particularly for a central location and was a great base from which to explore Yerevan. They also run tours to further reaches. The staff helped organise airport transfers and wake-up calls for me, gave me advice on what to see and even invited me to join in a meal for their colleagues and the hostel owner. I'll defintely stay again if I re-visit beautiful Armenia.

I come here several times a year when I have to be in Yerevan for my work, and always just love it! The staff is super nice and uncomplicated, and the facilities are western standard and clean which is just a relief after dusty villages. As I travel alone, its great to meet other western travelers and speak English for a change. The atmosphere is like you get in contact easily. There is a kitchen, always tee and coffee.

I stayed at the Envoy Hostel monthly for the 3.5 years I was in the Peace Corps, and a few days ago stayed there the night before I returned to Chicago, after visiting friends. I love the place. It's clean, comfortable, usually quiet; the beds are wonderful, breakfast fine, and computers available anytime. All of this comes with a low price and wonderful, helpful staff, who really enjoy taking care of their guests. I recommend the Envoy Hostel completely.

A very nice hostel with courteous and very helpful staff. Great common area downstairs with internet.
Everything you need is within walking distance including SAS supermarket.
The tours are also very well run
I had the 4 bed, which was small, but air conditioned, which was very needed in July

Stayed here for a few days in April and it gets full marks for cleanliness, location and facilities but it's the people who work at Envoy that make it so special. Being welcomed with a smile each and every time and patiently answering questions that I'm sure they've been asked a thousand times without making it seem like a chore. The tours are absolutely essential and one of the best reasons for staying here. Gevorg and Maria are incredibly good company and so knowledgeable it feels like you're with friends for the day showing you the country which they are so justifiably proud of. Even if you're not staying at Envoy I'd highly recommend booking one of the many tours on offer.
