“Best hostel for authentic view of the city”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I stayed at this hostel several times and always had a good experience. Raffa and the other staff are always warm and welcoming as well as easy going and ready to share a chacha shot. The staff is also very helpful with recommending places to go/eat/things to do and give directions. The rooms and washrooms aren't the fanciest but are always clean and the hostel has an overall relaxed vibe, perfect for hanging out outside. I found too that most of the other patrons were the friendly travelling types and lots of expat ESL teachers go there. It's a great spot for the solo traveller to stay if they want to make some friends during their stay.

cosy hostel with open, informal flaire and opportunities to meet the most interesting people.
competent information for travels throughout georgia and beyond is provided by the staff.
the beautiful patio section with ancient grapevine plants invites you to relax and enjoy local beverages while chatting with other travellers and the staff or planing your next excursions.
it is situated close to a metro station but the helpfull staff can order you a taxi to the airport as well.

Room Tip: close your eyes, take a sip, walk 3 steps, then repeat the procedure until you find the perfect bed

My daughter and I went to Tbilist and stayed at a hostel there
So, I'll try to write this review by being honest and fair
I'm a bit biased because the staff there was so nice to us
When we needed to stay extra days with no booking noone made a fuss
We cooked, we ate, we slept, we talked
And after all that, to the fruit market we walked
This market was nearby as was a clothing shop
Also, plenty places to eat and Avlabari metro stop
If I had to pick one negative thing to say about this place
It'd be the name of the kitten that may be in poor taste
The kitten's name was Adolf and I was taken aback at first
And, while I was cooking in the kitchen, Adolf needed to quench his thirst
I looked at that little kitten with his moustache just in the right place
And, a tiny smile began to form in the middle of my face
So, if you're looking for a place to live, not just stay, while in Tbilisi
Drop an email to the staff at Tbilisi Hostel, namely Badri

Ciao 4 Now, Y'All

We had such a good experience with this hostel! Badri and the rest of the staff will make sure you have tons of fun. They were very laid back and accommodating. It's a great place to meet people and hang out. Beds and bathrooms were clean, no problems. Great location. I would absolutely come back to this place! Beware of chacha!!

This is a dangerous place. You have so much fun that it is hardly possible to leave! It is worth travelling to Tbilisi just to hang out in this hostel. Met many good people here; it is like having a second home:). Thank you Rauf!
