It’s a very welcoming place, with probably the friendliest staff I’ve ever encountered throughout my hostel experience (especially Andy and Liv). The location couldn’t be better, with it being right at the beginning of the historic old town. Also, the prices are TO DIE FOR! Definitely stay here if you find yourself in Vilnius!
I would not recommend this hostel to solo women travelers. The manager, Dean, became enraged at me because I said that I was a “puppy mom.” He launched into an aggressive tirade about how much he hates people who call themselves puppy moms. I was scared for my safety as he appeared to be getting more and more violent over such a silly thing. I left this hostel at night and found a hotel to stay at as no amount of money is worth my safety. I would suggest that solo women travelers find a safer place to stay in Vilnius.
We stayed here one night and it was very comfortable and cozy, the place has a very nice atmosphere, location is great - in old town but also close to the bus stop to airport and bus & train stations. The staff is super-friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
I had to change dates for my trip to Vilnius, I made cancellation in time, even though they decided to leave my money for themselves. I've found out reading other reviews that I'm not the only one. Moreover, they are almost impossible to connect through e-mails, I was lucky to get a reply after a lot of letters and time, that they would do the refund. Then they disappeared. I had to find them on Facebook, and, thank God, they were so kind to reply! It turned out that they don't know how to make refunds abroad, can you imagine? I understand, this can be a bank issue, they mentioned it, but I asked them a couple of times to give me the receipt of the failed refund because of my bank - never showed it to me either. Then, I guess, they were offended, that I had said to them it's not a normal behavior and I'm not going to give up on the money - they have started gosting me! I'll come to your rude hostel and take my money personally, because you're literally thieves, Hostelgate!…
My stay at hostelgate was awesome. Great spot in the city. Perfect for travelers who want to meet other people. The staff was amazing and really go above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay. I would definitely stay here again the next time I’m in Vilnius.
Excellent location and the staff is extremely friendly and convenient. There is a nice and huge common room upstairs. I recommend it! It is close from the bus station which is appreciable. Bring your own lock for the lockers!
I had a fantastic stay here. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Hostel is in a great location, very clean and comfortable. I booked a 4 bed dorm and managed to get the room to myself which was great! Nice big kitchen and social area. Would definitely stay here again.
I stayed one night at hostelgate and for the price it blew me away. Clean rooms, great service and well equipped kitchen. The toilet was a bit small for comfort but everything else was on point. Also it's not to far from the centre and has a supermarket about 3 minutes away. Loved it and will definitely be staying there if i stop in Vilnius again.
Very nice and clean and comfortable hostel in Vilnius. Very good location. Easy access from the street. Safe place with lockers in your room. The kitchen is OK, but could be cleaner. The boy at the reception very kind and Irish!!!
Can recommend Hostelgate for sure! The hostel is very spacious. My room of 5 beds was very large and everyone had enough space and privacy even if the dorm was fully booked. I had my own plugs and light next to my bed. The hallways were clean and the entrance secure, if this is a concern for you. You will receive an electronic chip to open the front door. Although I stayed at Hostelgate during a quiet week, the staff did their best to make me feel welcomed! They took me out to a bar where you can play bowling, which was great fun. Thanks guys!
