Among those new hostels, Pinn is definitely one to visit, if you are searching for cheap (not in a sense of value but in a sense of price) and peaceful experience.

Combination of minimalistic bras, colors and wooden furniture are guaranteed to catch your attention and make you feel home.

Needless to say, free Wi-Fi is accessible in every room. Kitchen of Pinn is perfectly suited for hostel/visitor’s needs, equipped with every necessary utility. Here you can enjoy your free, evening coffee or tea and make new acquaintances, granted, you are not out, busy making them in one of Tbilisi’s famous bars and cafes wineries and restaurants that are all at your fingertips here, on Dadiani, Qiqodze, Machabeli, Tabidze streets that are all in parallel, perpendicular or some other closely geometrical relation to Lermontov street.

This small hostel run by a local family could be the most artistic hostel in Tbilisi. Whole interior is entirely designed by it’s owner – a theater artists (hence the name Art Hostel). The hostel stands secluded in a central part of old city. Everything one wishes to see is just couple of minutes away: Shardeni Str.,Narikala, abanotubani, souvenir shop, wine places etc. Our favorite room is a private one, which costs 25$, but it’s quite big with a private bathroom and kitchen, so after a long day in Tbilisi you can get a bottle of wine at vinoteca (3 minutes walk from Art Hostel ) and enjoy a beautiful evening. Oh, and cats love to pass by which is also very authentic thing for old Tbilisi.
