Great location, good common room, friendly staff and nice breakfast; just the way a good hostel should be :)
+Location is perfect. +Luxury: the bathroom has floor heating!Which is on during the summer? +Great by the way: staff kept showergel/deodorant/soap so everywhere there is leftover soap. -Hostel's upper dorm room (>10) has only 1 bathroom that has toilet and shower in one.There are 4 toilets downstairs but mostly all combined in one room so if someone uses the toilet, someone else can't use the showers -The staff let you sign a contract for vaiolation of noice etc. The staff were very noisy.
Vilnius is one of the BEST places on the entire planet and Jimmy Jump Hostel made my visit absolutely perfect. I have to make mention of how friendly and helpful (and stunningly beautiful) the staff is. Check out the basement where you can quietly hang and even cook!
Overall a pretty good place - the clientele seem to almost exclusively be predominantly young Australian guys, but there was just enough of an international mix to make the conversation in the common room interesting - it's a really social place to hang out and meet people. The girls working reception are very helpful and friendly and the common area is always spotless. Bad things: only had hot water on one of the days I stayed there and the 'pub crawl' (2 pubs?) wasn't good value for money.
Some broken things like showerheads, and breakfast missing simple things like napkins/paper towel and toppings other than jelly. Also security is kind of weak (the front door was propped open for an entire day) and someone's phone got stolen. But other than that, great setup with the common rooms and really fun atmosphere!
Was very pleased with both Vilnius and Jimmy Jumps. The security was great as was the location however, Vilnius is a difficult city to navigate and Jimmy Jumps is not an easy hostel to find. The directions provided by Jimmy Jumps was not enough for me, so be prepared if you're arriving in Vilnius from the airport or central bus station. Other than that, I was highly impressed by Jimmy Jumps. At first I was concerned by the idea of a "party hostel", but the atmosphere has an excellent balance.
Great hostel, Try not to stay in the 10 bed dorm - was way too noisy (through no fault of the hostel though) In all a pleasant hostel with really good facilities and friendly staff.
really nice hostel and great staff

Hostel staff were really friendly, the pub crawl though on a Monday night was really fun! The hostel was quite clean, and really the only thing that bothered me was the broken shower head in my dorm, but wasn't a deal breaker. I would recommend this hostel to everyone and look forward to coming back!!
The city isn't big and this is in a central location. The rooms and facilities were very clean, the bed was comfortable. Staff was a bit hit and miss with their friendliness. The free waffles in the morning are great! The kitchen/common room was always busy but seemed to be a lot of groups of friends or couples. Not the best place to meet people if you're a solo traveler.
Can't ask for a better location - barely five minutes to the town hall square. Yummy breakfast. Would appreciate better security, i.e. with the rooms. Could also do with another shower or two to reduce waiting during peak times. Had a good stay with Jimmy Jumps :)
Staff was great and had some nice girls included :P ;). Location is good and many restaurants/bars are within walking distance. You can walk from the train station to the hostel (since it is pretty close to the main square). Good value for your money and loved the waffles as breakfast. Would definetly recommend this hostel!
great hostel, super friendly staff, pub crawl every night, free breakfast, you're allowed to draw on the walls, great atmosphere
Good in general, but the rooms are too small for the amount of people, and with no ventilation, the air at night was not very clean. Also, pillows were not comfortable at all. Other than that, everything was good.
Terrific hostel. Ended up staying longer largely due to the amazing staff, In particular James and Indre. Would highly recommend this place to others and I'm sure I'll be back very shortly.
Great hostel, great terrace and location. 12bed dorm best room there. Greeting for Bożenka from 5 Polish guys! :)
This is the hostel to stay at in Vilnius! The location can't be beat and the staff are awesome. The general environment is very sociable but it's also quiet at night if you need to pass out early. The showers not the best, but otherwise stay nowhere else.
