We booked the Penthouse Hostel but was unavailable when we arrived, due to no electricity. They took us to the Downtown Hostel in a taxi. We booked a dorm but they gave us a private room since there's a change in hostel. We extended our stay and they didn't make us change rooms. Maybe it's also because it's low season.... More

I enjoyed 8 nights at the Donwtown Hostel in Yerevan. The hostel is clean and well-run. Staff is VERY friendly. The breakfast was spartan and not to my taste--bread, hardboiled eggs, chees, and turkey hotdogs, and the coffee/tea is only hot water with instant, but for the price, convenience, cleanliness, and friendliness, who cares? I would stay there again!

Me, my wife and two friends of us stayed in the DownTown hostel for 1 night late September 2014. The hostel is comfortable enough. It has a big and cosy kitchen, clean rooms and friendly staff. We were very happy about 4-person rooms being available: we didn't have to split our company or share our room with other people. The... More

- Staff were very polite and helpful. - nice breakfast and services (free internet and coffee...). - free use of washing machine. - We had a sink inside the room in the closet which smelled extremely lethal (sewage). - toilet and shower also smelled sewers. - beds were very used, mattresses were stained.

The hostel is inside a building area out of the main street. The receptionists are polite and helpful. We ware unlucky with the double room on the end of the corridor which was stinking very much of the old closed tab ( the room was in the past propably a kitchen). The smell was so bad that sleeping for first... More

I was advised to stay here when I visited Yerevan. I stayed in both dorm and 3-bed room. Everything was clean and tidy, expect there was a problem with the pipe but they got it fixed very quickly. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. They are happy to answer all of your questions. I highly recommend this hostel and... More

Having previously stayed at another hostel in Yerevan with "good" reviews, it was such a relief to come to the Downtown Hostel. Catherine the Manageress of the hostel has been particularly efficient and helpful throughout, assisting us with our accommodation requirements and with queries regarding trips to the surrounding area.

We booked a 4-person room for two nights. The hostel is in a great location, it's very very clean and well-organized, and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.

My visit to Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, was definately the highlight of my visit in Armenia. Downtown Hostel was one of the best hostels that I stayed in throughout my ''Silk Road'' journey (From Uzbekistan to Turkey).
