This hostel is great. It is cheap, helpful and friendly staff, who will sit and chat/smoke with you, really good wifi connectivity and plenty of advice for day trips. I stayed in early May and it was full of young backpackers from around the world. Very sociable experience. Great location off the Rustavelli boulevard. They even helped me go to...

We stayed at the hostel during a warm week of september and the first problem was the lack of air conditioning. The only solution was a small fan which was not very helpful. The dorm room itself was nice and comfortable, but unfortunately there are only 3 showers and 2 toilets for the whole hostel (im guessing around 40 people...

The hostel is located about 10 minutes walk from the main tourist areas which are centered around Freedom Square. Hostel directions are easy to follow, and it can be reached by Bus from the airport or Metro from other parts of the city. The hostel provided a great breakfast starting at about 9.30 and changes daily. The staff are fantastic...

I stayed at Why Not for a few nights as a solo traveller in Georgia last week. First of all, a disclaimer to address the minority of negative reviews on this site: Why Not is a cheap, sociable, homely hostel filled with (mostly) young-ish backpackers. There seemed to be a quiet party vibe most evenings I was there (nothing OTT!)....

I booked 'Why Not' because of the great reviews & Lonely Planet claimed it a "must see". It felt more like a friend's messy apartment (that friend who has the party house & always has people moving in & out) than a hostel. Everything seemed dirty, smelly, & cluttered. There doesn't seem to be a designated cleaning person, which must...

A crowded hostel just off Rustaveli Street between 2 metro stations on walking distance. Great place to meet fellow travellers as there a big common area and morning breakfast included. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Mattress is comfortable. Night check in available.
