Why Not? Legend Hostel : My Favourite Hostel in Tbilisi, Georgia

Oh yeah! Loving the Why Not? Hostel in Tbilisi, Georgia!

You’ll know I’m a hostel freak when I go backpacking and I found a great place to base myself for over a month in Tbilisi, Georgia! The Why Not? Legend Hostel is a superb place to socialise, hang out, sleep and relax. You can stay on the top floor in a massive room, basically one of the biggest dorms I’ve ever stayed in! I counted 24 beds, which doesn’t quite beat my dorm in Manila a few years back, but it’s still pretty awesome. While staying there, my girlfriend and I met a bunch of cool people including the awesome Bamboo Cyclists. I’d say Why Not is the best hostel in Georgia.

Here’s 10 Reasons why I loved Why Not? Legend Hostel:

1. Great staff

You always feel welcome here. Peter from Poland runs the show and even gave us a free red wine night in October. We also met 2 of the other managers in Batumi while getting our Azerbaijan visas, Maddy and Benji. Maddy helped organise the return of my bag when it went missing on a Turkish Airlines flight just over a month ago! The staff are always on hand to help and that’s what makes it a great hostel.

2. Relaxed Atmosphere

In my early days of travel I used to love party hostels and crazy hostels. These days, I love cosy lounges and a great place to mingle and relax. Why Not? has one of the best lounges to relax in.

3. Free Breakfast

It’s a pet hate of mine for hostels not to have free breakfast, hence my love of all the South American ones I stayed in. Here at Why Not? there’s unlimited cereals, bread, tea and coffee. Plus you can choose eggs, tomatoes and cucumber for your bread or homemade jam and chocolate. Served from 9 – 11 am.

6. Social Network

I’ve met people from about 20 different countries in the Why Not? hostel, some of them like Ying and Spela joined us on a tour to Davit Gareja. You can easily increase your social network here. We also bumped into a few of the backpackers from Why Not in Azerbaijan and Armenia!

10. 22 Bed Dorm

When we first moved into the Why Not Legend hostel I counted 22 beds being used in our massive top floor dorm!! Immense!! By the time we had moved out and Autumn had kicked in (just over a month later) there were only 2 other guys in there. Apart from a hostel in Manila Philippines (32 bed dorm) I can’t remember a dorm this big and spacious before!!
