We were staying in another hostel of the same owner, Extra hostel. But this one was even better. Clean and spacious rooms, baths for men and women, kitchen. The hostel is located near the Old town and not far from the main attractions and nu,erous cafes and restaurants. It can be easily found, because the main hostel is in the... More

Loved this hostel, stayed there one night and wish we would of stayed for longer but couldn't. Spotless clean, great atmosphere, super friendly staff. Lovely room, with even a TV and DVD player, big windows, great decoration. Would definitely stay there again.

As for couple we were given a private room in the center of Kaunas. The accommodation was cheap, yet very neat and tidy. The bathroom was outside the room but it wasn't a problem. I liked the place and certainly recommend it to travelers. Note: when we booked a room directly through the hostel website it was cheaper than on... More

I have been in R Hostel in late July 2013. surprisingly, there aren't many tourist in Kaunas then; don't know why, it's an amazing city. R Hostel is located on a great place at the beggining of the city centre. I have spent 2 nights in apartments that they also offer. They have two apartments located near the rest of... More

Stayed in R Hostel whilst travelling Lithuania with two friends in April, the hostel is small and quiet but such a great place. It's positioned very close to St Michael the Archangel Church and is easy to travel to and from. The staff are friendly, when we first arrived the girl on reception marked the most important things for us... More

One of my right decisions! I came here at night and there was no street lights. At first I was scared to death but the lovely staff leading the way calmed me down. We had ordered a room for 3 people but luckily they arranged a family room for us. The place was nice, clean and modern. You can use... More

It was my first time staying in the hostel. I was amazed by good service and nice personal. It was good experience to meet new friends in the hostel. The location is perfect, close to Akropolis and to the downtown. Overall, I am fully satisfied with the "R Hostel"!!

Within easy walking distance of the bus/rail stations, but also close to the city center, this struck a great balance. The place itself was clean, comfortable, and cheap. I didn't hang around during the day so can't speak to atmosphere, but the important bits (bed, shower, toilet, etc) were all above grade.

I stayed at R hostel in Nov 2011 (only getting round to updating tripadvisor now) and I must say it is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. I booked a twin room with shared bathroom for 3 nights. I arranged for a airport transfer from the hostel themselves and it was reasonably priced. The hostel is pretty... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are R Hostel - hostel that rocks in Kaunas. Our unique location is the very center of Kaunas but at the same time we are very close to bus and railway stations. Our building belongs to national architectural heritage and our roof terrace view is really nice. We offer nice cozy rooms, friendly staff, good advices. We have lounge room with games, table soccer (our staff guys are really good so if you beat them ask them for better deal as award), poker evenings and Lithuanian local home made beer tasting nights. In the summer you can expect grill parties on the roof, a few days wild camping fishing tours (it costs only fuel and equipment rent). Our slogan is that being in R Hostel is "more than just a stay" and we want you to come for a sleep, but find an adventure. ... more   less
