If you’re looking for a place to drop all your things no matter how big or many they are (even if you have a piano with you!), where you can ask the owner to bring you to the hammock in the garden (with the guarantee that nobody will wake you up at least some time), or to the fruit trees to help pick some fruits (cherry, apricot, mulberry trees), or at least to lay down on the comfy couch in balcony with a view ending at about the end of the mountainous horizon – Balcony hostel is your choice.
I’ve visited it on such a variety of occasions, that it has become an almost second home for me, with a very rich memory storage in the air. Some examples: a steering meeting of media activists and guerilla youth groups, youth exchanges of the European Union youth programs, meeting random travelers that arrived from an unknown continent and crushed here for a week, etc. To me this is not just a hostel, but rather a hospitable underground hub with lots of rooms and beds, and a big garden on a steep slope over a high cliff, which is also pretty affordable. It has a particular kind of gravity that attracts very interesting people (nothing against boring people, but they just don’t come here;-).
Even though it’s located about 15 min walking distance from Barekamutyun metro station, which is within so-called “big center” area, it doesn’t even feel like it’s in a big city.
