Georgia’s capital Tbilisi has many accommodation options for its visitors. You can find Airbnb apartments, guesthouses and international brand hotels that suite every traveler’s budget. If saving money is a concern, Tbilisi is also home to some great hostels. Here’s our guide to some of the best hostels in Tbilisi.
Fox Hostel Tbilisi
This cozy hostel, located on Gabashvili Street, has a unique artistic atmosphere. You’ll quickly feel like you are part of a welcoming community of creative individuals. Besides being clean and friendly, Fox Hostel is within walking distance from Rustaveli Avenue and Old Town.
The price of a room depends on the type of the room chosen and will range between $9-35 (£6.7-26). The hostel offers dorms, private rooms, and triple rooms.
What now is a hostel used to be a Soviet sewing factory. Hence the name Fabrika, which means Factory in Georgian. During the renovation process, the creators tried to leave as much decor from the previous venue as possible. For instance, the reception desk is made out of an old sewing machine, and bathroom floor tiles are original. Fabrika is not only a hostel, it’s a multi-functional space for artists, creators, and anyone who loves trendy, slightly hipster atmospheres. It has rooms for any budget, including dorm rooms, private single and double rooms, and apartments. Prices start from $8 (£5.9).
Nest Hostel is another centrally located accommodation that is both cozy and cheap. The place has dorm and private rooms ranging from $10-40 (£7-30) depending what room you book. And if you need to do laundry, it can be done with a $2 (£1.5) fee.
The central location of the hostel means that guests are close to Freedom Square and Old Town, as well as many shops and restaurants.
If you are a person who likes enjoying spectacular views, Diwan Hostel is the best for you. Sip your favorite hot beverage in the morning and enjoy breathtaking views of the city, or have a glass of Georgian wine in the evening and look at Tbilisi’s bright lights.
In case you get bored, which is doubtful, the hostel has board games, TV, and books to keep you entertained. Additionally, if it rains during your stay, the staff can provide umbrellas, among other useful things like sewing kits and sim cards.
Located in the Mtatsminda district, Patio Hostel has dorms and private rooms starting at $8 (£5.9). In addition to clean bed linens, free storage units, and in-house laundry, the hostel offers a fully equipped kitchen for guests to share and prepare meals. And if you plan on renting a car in Tbilisi, the property has its own parking lot.
