Liked: Highly recommended. The staff is extremely relaxed, but efficient and helpful at the same time. The place is run to make life easier and not more difficult - the mutual trust seems to be the motto. And very good value for money. The playful, friendly kitten is a big bonus.

Disliked: The window in my room was overlooking the patio and the downside was that I would sometimes be woken up at 1a.m. by a group of backpackers discussing, say, the pros and cons of the E.U. The upside was that the conversations tended to be very interesting; one morning, when I ran into the people, I even provided one side with a few (quite good :) points (anti-EU).

Liked: Friendly, clean. Door code system, so no keys needed. Good system for storing and labelling food in the kitchen and fridge

Disliked: Kitchen for communal use a bit chaotic at busy times (hostel was full when we were there, so potenitally 100+ guests using a four ring cooker situated in the darkest corner of the kitchen. Washing machine old and difficult to make it work. Drying washing takes forever as the only drying racks are in a basement. It would have been easy to put up a washing line outside as there is masses of space. They need to enforce the 11.30 quite curfew. One noisy party of teenagers was allowed to go on making too much noise until dawn despite guests asking them to be quiet several times after 1am. No member of staff told them to stop.

Liked: Dorm rooms are very big, spacious, clean, with high ceiling, and with a security code to enter room. Toilet facilities are very clean with good hot showers and roomy.. Beautiful kitchen area. The place is well kept and clean. It is one of the cheapest place to stay in Vilnius.The staff is very friendly and trustworthy. You can take a beer just next to the reception desk if the reception clerk is not there (maybe he/she went to the bathroom) and then pay for it later when the clerk is back. You really feel at home when you are at this hostel. If you are on a budget, this is the place to be.

Liked: Location, possibilities to use common facilities (kitchen with all equipment, washing machines).

Disliked: My room was with a window to terrace where smoking was allowed so I couldn't ventilate my room properly and there was noisy because of the people spending time on it but it shouldn't be an issue for all of the rooms.

Liked: Nice place, more like a hotel than a hostel. Quiet, clean.

Disliked: My single room was small and on the ground floor next to the veranda. Since the curtain was a bit see-through, especially with the lights on, people could look inside from the outside.

Liked: Paupio Namai is very quiet and peaceful and suitable if you don't want to stay at a party hostel. There is a large kitchen and the premises is clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful with directions, helping with taxis etc. It is a laid-back place.

Disliked: Unfortunately there are no lockers available and the toilets sometimes went without toilet paper or handtowels - but there was always another toilet to use.
