Nice and good hostel. But I made a reservation and received a confirmation, but when we arrived at the hostel there was no place for us. They did the best they could for us which we really appreciated.
I felt very welcome by a very professional staff. The hostel sits in a residential buidlding, a former ambassyy, therefore the rooms are spacoius with heigh ceilings, good to open windows and well heated . Wifi/ internet free, breakfast free and 24 hours! What else can one want? Vilnius is beautiful: rich and poor and highly historixcal!
For some reason the hostel didn't get our booking though I paid the deposit for it. Instead of a double room my boyfriend and I were offered 2 beds in a common room for 5 people. The receptionist said they won't put more people there. But at 3 am some guy started to knock at the door which we locked from inside so we had to wake up and talk to him. It turned out he wanted to sleep there. I do hope the hostel will look into the issue with our booking.

Loved my 4 bed room. Th beds were very comfortable. The room was huge and we even had skylights in the room. The showers were clean and numerous enough. Location is a 10 min walk to Old Town.
Good location to both train and bus station as well as being a stones throw from the old town. Very comfortable beds and spacious rooms. The bar needs improvement.
Huge kitchen and big balcony which acts as a common room and people usually hang out in there. The staff was really friendly and helped us alot.
Very nice new hostel in town. Quite close to the sights and easy to get to/from the station. And you can even buy souvenirs to remember about your stay - I've got my yellow sunglasses there :) Nice, friendly staff!
I had a really good time at Jamaika. The dorms are huge so you can spread your stuff out and the staff are really helpful. There is a locker right next to each bed which was really useful. The facilities are pretty good, except there were a few problems with the shower fo my dorm so I had to use another one. The wifi only works in the reception, itsa bit sketchy everywhere else. Overall, I had a great time there though!
A decent and spacious facility, with some cool decorations, and a hospitable staff. The free tea and coffee is a nice touch, but don't get too excited about the stale toast.
Our stay at Hostel Jamaika was perfect. Good location, facillities, bar and balkony.

Great new place! location- could not ask more! real value for money! will certainly return there!
Not for people who likes sleep well, because of party on the ground floor. For our group it was not a problem :). Very nice, helpful and pretty girls in reception - the guy strange and does not raise confidence. Everyone speaks english very well. Rooms and toilet clean. Wi-fi works well only near reception. Superb location, ask staff for a free parking tip.
My stay at Jamaika was different than I expected. As a Jamaican, I expected a bit more authenticity for Jamaika hostel. You would be hard pressed to find a Jamaican establishment that does not even have a Jamaican flag. It appears the only elements of Jamaica taken is the "smoking aspect." They tried by playing some reggae music "mostly Bob Marley," not much else. Reggae is soo much more. The facility is centrally located. They did not send directions as stated, made finding the place difficult!
We had a rough start, because the reception was unattended when we arrived. After about an hour someone showed up, he was extremly friendly and after that we didn't have any problems with the staff anymore. The hostel is very spacious and has a lot of potential. The atmosphere is great, it has a very nice balcony and the kitchen and all the rooms are huge. The showers are awesome, allthough they need hooks for towels:-). We enjoyed our stay very much (and the marketplace just across the street).
