Oasis Club

Top choice hostel, hotel in Davit Gareja

This unlikely Polish-run hostel-hotel-restaurant is indeed an oasis – of relaxation and fun, with occasional wild party nights, in what's almost the middle of nowhere at semi-abandoned Udabno village (not to be confused with Udabno monastery), 14km before Lavra monastery on the road from Sagarejo.

For sleeping, you have a choice between the 20-bed hostel or cosy wooden hotel rooms with private bath. At the restaurant-bar (dishes 5 GEL to 12 GEL), cheerful staff serve up good salads, soups, khachapuri and other dishes, and plenty of beverages. It's great for a halt on the road even if you don't stay. The walking distance to Lavra cross-country is 8km.
