Low budget dorm rooms or separate rooms. The place is very tidy and the owner is a nice young man who is very willing to give you tips for getting around in Tbilisi. You should also try Chacha, their own Georgian vodka

Cheap hostel (15 lari for bed) Staff very friendly and welcoming. Beautiful view from the balcony. Good for backpackers on a budged. Only bad point is a bathroom. Not very clean and modern. hostel is in good location just 5 min by walk to old town.

The hostel is very cheap (15Lari for bunk beds ), the staff is very friendly and helpful. We were in Tbilisi in March and had the whole dormitory to ourselves which was quite enjoyable! The only bad point is the bathroom which is not so clean! Good for backpackers on a budget.

We stayed here for one night with our group. We were warmly welcomed and the view from the hostel balcony is awesome! Beds were comfortable enough, although the sheets were a bit shabby. The drains in the showers were pretty much clogged, so taking a shower was a bit unpleasant. Overall in a good location and a decent place to... More

We booked private rooms. There are 2 in this hostel and none of them has a window. They get very stiffy even though there is a fan. Lots of dust everywhere. If you want to get to your room or bathroom you have to go through the dormitory. Bathrooms are just filthy. They have black mould on the tiles and... More

We stayed there just a night. The room was twin with shared bathroom. The location is good and not that much dangerous. It is easy to get there. The room and bathroom was a kind of clean. The most freaking thing was that the room was too humid and next day I felt that smell in my hair. And there... More

The first place in my travelling career that had a light-switch _on the outside_ of the double private room. At night it was very noisy: there was a club gig somewhere in the vicinity with no care for soundproofing and the walls seem to suck in the traffic noise instead of blocking it. To say that the kitchen is tiny... More

Afwul place. Dirty, noisy, smelly. I felt so dirty here. Didnt sleep at all. Owners were fighting in middle of night. Would never ever stay here again, even not for free. Location is good, though... So at least something is good

My six friends and I have stayed in Tbilisi Friends Hostel for a night after 12 days of mountain trekking in Svanetia. And I definitely recommend this hostel to anyone visiting the capital. Its rather obvious advantage is the most central location in the Old town you can dream of – something like 5 min walk from Narikala fortress. A... More

“If going with a double, the top room on the left is the most spacious I think - also has a very interesting design (though if worried about theft - which is seldom an issue in Georgia - it might be possible to open the locked door from the windows above if the windows aren't securely closed).”
