t is a nice Hostel with a big kitchen and in the lobby there is something like a pub. The only thing which was not that good, it was very cold in my room. I have a cold now :( And another thing which was not that good. You were not able to lock your room in the night.

It's a good place to spend some times in Vilnius. Very close from the city center, we didn't have to take a cab. It would have been appreciable to get a key for our room (it was a dormitory but we had booked the whole room...and the wardrobe was closed with a tiny locker). We enjoyed so much the free coffee, and the nice rooms and the internal court for smokers. I recommend definitively, even if it's perfectible for facilities (tiny shower with no locker...).

Well located, between bus station and old town. Basic breakfast is included and available at any time, in a kitchen well furnished. Toilets and showers are together: clean but few. Room basic equipped but the heater was not enough to warm it all. Service is easy but not really friendly.

Although the hostel is well located and it has a lot of potential for being good, it stayed halfway from the expectations I had: no heating in the rooms when it was below 0ºC outside, no proper extra blankets, one member of the staff bothered because we asked for extra blankets, only two showers, not really clean rooms or badrooms... and a bar at the strance of the hostel where people who are not staying at the hostel scan you when you are getting there. Not friendly, not comfy.

Interesting, funky, place to stay, ie. hostel reception was also the pub/bar for the hipster locals. Great location at south end of old city, close to train/bus stations and the central market. I stayed in the top floor loft dorm with no bunks and a lot of space which was a nice change. Would stay there again.

This place is in a really good location, the beds are comfortable, the lockers really good and great kitchen facilities to cook your own meals. Its also really clean. But it seems to be full of alot of long term people, also it was just bad timing while I was there but everything seemed broken (washing machine, stove, heating) But they were quick to get things fixed (Although I think that is just how the heating is)

There was a lack of showers on the first floor. I had to wait 40 min. Apart from that it was super! The staff is very friendly.

A wonderful hostel. Especially loved having a bed to myself rather than a bunk bed!

Very nice hostel not far from the railway station (train to the airport) and from the city centre. Free washing machine, very clean sheets and rooms, bikes (free to use them), a bar in the hostel. By far, the best hostel I've been to.

Great staff, great location--near the train and bus station, but also right at the edge of Old Town. The free bike rentals and free laundry sent me over the moon! I cannot stress enough how helpful, kind, patient, and fun the staff was. Great place to stay!

Great staff and good atmosphere. Party during the weekends in the hostel bar. Near the hall town and a city central market. Positive vibration

Prices are mistaken. We booked a twin ensuite room but upon our arrival could only stay in a dorm. Staff explained some "synchronization problems". Hostel is good for big loud companies, interior is very creative :)

This hostel has a great potential. It's well located between the historical centre and the train station, in a beautiful big house and with good interior design. The idea of replacing bunk beds by single beds is wonderful. The good things: big common space, fridge space, coffee and tea 24/7, clean rooms, great beds, own lamp. The bad things: dirty toilets with blocked sinks, just two showers, some arrogant staff, two keys for an 8-beds room, minimal control of who is going in/out, small kitchen.

Well.. the hostel itself is nice, located in stunning old building, close to the city center. Girls at the reception were nice, there was really interesting music performance during the evening in the backyard. Jamaika doesn´t have the typicall hostel crowd - there were parents with kids, bit older people and so on. Main problem was that there were only two bathrooms - toilet and shower together-at our floor.That means that usually you had to wait for a long time, also it wasn´t very clean.

for me everything was good, the staff is very helpfull and friendly and also everything seems to be close by, i never had to take any bus or public transport to anywhere, if you are coming from the bus station its really easy to spot, there is also a supermarkets close by and the bar downstairs its very awesome! but it gets pretty loud, still i will definitly go there again :)
