I didn't know those people, but after few days I felt like in home. Very nice atmosphere inside. They are really helpful and friendly - always. Good localization. Oh! And bar with a really good bartender!:)

this is an amazing place..I've stayed here in summer when there was a pool and had great time but now i had the most amazing adventure trough old town with the owner and the guys in the bar..hostel is not an European standard but the atmosphere and the character is really Tiflis style..full of stories, secrets and old style ornaments..
the only problem is that when it's overcrowded there is a queue near bathrooms : )
And the bar..it's really esoteric bar when the owner wants to share with you his knowledge...
happy new year guys!!!

Room Tip: privates have no windows but it's cheap as i know but the dormitory is one of the decent experie...

The hostel is slightly difficult to find but it has a nice location in the old town, right at the foothills of the Narikala fortress & the Mother Georgia statue, and at less than a 5 minute walk to the sulfur baths.

The owner & staff are the most helpful with any requests - which included them coming down to the main street with us to find us a cab and explain to the cab driver about the location we wanted to go to! The conversations with the staff and the owner were all interesting - the kind that get you to want to know the person more!

About the hostel itself: The ground floor has been converted into a great, cozy little bar. The dorm room is nice and big with 10 odd bunk beds set up and 2 bathrooms to accompany. It's quite clean and I didn't notice any issues with the place.

The overall experience was great - strongly recommend the place to backpackers & budget travellers. I myself would definitely stay here if (or when!) i visit Tbilisi again.

Stayed here for a few nights before flying out of Tbilisi. Incredibly friendly atmosphere that any weary traveler will appreciate. Staff members all speak great English and are keen to show you around and get you settled into your accommodations. We could even check in early, which was a massive help after almost 24 hours without sleep. The premises also comes with a small bar will beers on tap, decent wifi and hot showers. Overall a decent place to spend your time in Tbilisi as it's very central and accessible but also economical. Only obvious cons I can think of is the cramped style of the building and lack of windows in the lower bar. Apart from that a great place to rest up..

This hostel is situated not far from Tbilicy's Old Town City centre. It may be difficult to find it at first time, but you'll be surprised how good this places is situated. Hostel is in the centre, but at the same time it's very quiet place. The personnel speaks Russian and English as well. Free coffee, tea and wi-fi are available. The interrior looks nice. There's probably some renovation needed for hostel's bathrooms. Big hostel's mirrors are amazing. Hostel has one private room on the first floor, dormitory for 10 person on the second, and 2 more private rooms on the third floor. You can also sleep on a balcony if you want. The place has real hostel atmosphere and I do not regret of staying at this hostel for 4 nights. Thank you, Tbilisi Friends Hostel.
