Firstly - as an experienced traveller I don't normally give a 100% negative review but there was not a positive about this hostel. Where to start - the booking was made for Vilnius Hostel, this name isn't anywhere on the building!! Upon check-in the receptionist was pleasant. No maps or guides in the hotel. We were given our key and... More

This hostel start have serious problem --bed bugs,I was stay in 12-bed dorm,got so many bites so change to another room,and I just find 2 more bugs, still small. I noted every linen have few drop of blood,it means something.... Have smelling toilete,and no living room at all. 這家青年旅館有床蝨,不只在多人間發現,而且很多床單上都有血漬,代表不是我個人問題,他們衛浴也都有很重味道,沒有交誼廳可以使用

First the good point: super central location. Now to the negative part: We stayed at A-Hostel's little sister across the street and had booked a double room. It smelled funny, furniture and bedding was really old and used and the place seemed to be overcrowded with middle aged men who seemed to run some dodgy business from the hostel's car... More

I wouldn't say this is a great hostel, because it isn't. It is not expensive, so that's the major pro. The room stinked like a bathroom, and the only window (which actually is a hole that brings light through the windows up in the hole) couldn't be opened, so I couldn't really get rid of that smell. The bathrooms are... More

Vilnius hostel seems to have a few addresses... We reserved at 8 Sodu and finally slept at 17 Sodu. Anyway the private with share we had was a good size, clean, comfortable bed, but we had the impression to sleep on the street. Situated in a baseman, what you see by the window is the legs of the peoples and... More

The hostel is located near the central train and bus station and 5 min walk to the old town. It aha the own parking. At our stay the room and the toilets/showers was very clean. The towels are free, but you must ask for it. The reception work 24/7.

This hostel prides itself on being the cheapest place to stay in Vilnius. That's true and you certainly get what you pay for. There's nothing wrong with this place really, but you really ought to know that it's not plush in any way (in fact it was a bit grimy in places) and it really only ought to be used... More

First of all, the A Hostel is in a very convenient location, a few minutes walk from both the bus and railway stations and about 5 minutes walk from the Gate of Dawn at the southern edge of Vilnius's Old Town. There's a trolleybus stop about a minute's walk away, but that's only useful if you're returning to the hostel... More
