Liked: The hostel defineatly has very nice interior and atmosphere. Also everything was clean and nice.

Disliked: The room were a little bit cold, and the blankets were a little bit too thin - so either turn up the heat or put warmer blankets :) Also the walls are very thin, so you hear everything people does around you.

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.
