In the spirit of my apparent habit for booking accomodation at the last minute, two days before my flight to Vilnius this was the cheapest central-ish hostel that I could find to stay at. It is only a short (10-15 minute, though maybe less when the streets aren't slippery with ice!) walk from the train station, although difficult to find...

I booked online but there was a mistake with my reservation and as it was full, I couldn't stay. Whenever I chose a place, I carefully select it by its location and reviews and sadly, this was unexpected.Finally, they booked for me in other hostel that was close to this one but in terrible conditions so ended moving to a...

I enjoyed my stay here, it was my kind of hostel. Good vibes and a great common room, and the location was ideal - about 7 mins walk from the central train station and right inside the Old Town. Toilets and showers were reasonably clean and the room was nice and big and airy. I had a lot of power...

We booked a double room for four nights and really enjoyed our stay. We weren't at the main location, but the secondary one which was really convenient as well and only had private rooms inside the building. There was no official HostelGate employee at that location, but we were provided with a code and key to enter the building from...

Room and bathrooms are clean. It was my first time in an hostel and it was better than I thought. The kitchen is sooo nice and it's the perfect place to stay together and share nice moments with the other hosts. They allowed us to store our luggages at the reception even during the day we left the hostel. They...

One of the best hostels I have stayed in, cheap prices, amazing social atmosphere (one night 19 of us went out together with half of that number only arriving that day), big clean kitchens and and social area. The beds are comfortable and the bunks aren't too squeaky. As other reviewers have said, the showers could do with some upgrades...
