Hostel is great! Owner is also great! so let's keep it on this way :)


Really good service, they can do with a coffee maker as a small pot was not enough for a lot of people, however, the experience was great.

It's not about quantity - it's about quality:) We have the highest class Italian Moka coffee maker. Also we have a pot for brewing Turkish coffee. Sorry if you had to wait for your Moka. But we are happy that you evaluated our service. See you next time!


This one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in. The beds were all very comfortable and each room had big lockers for each person. The whole place was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful of the city. I didn't use the kitchen during my stay but it looked amazing and fully stocked. You get the feeling like you're a welcome guest in someone's apartment.

We are very happy to read such a positive feedback. Hopefully next time you can try out our kitchen and bake some Scottish pie:)


What a wonderful place! Every time I visit Kaunas I stay in Monks bunk. It is clean, cosy, friendly place in a good location. The owner took us to a small hiking trip in nature which was really cool!

And you are always welcome back here! See you next time:)


The staff is very kind, location of hostel is good common room is not closed to sleeping room thus i can sleep early or late without disturbing others


This is a fairly typical small hostel. Location is good for the modern part of town, but it is a good 20 minute walk to old town. Good points: lockers in room and locks on dorm room. Good sized common room and kitchen. Bad points: Hostel is very small and not very private. In March don't expect any other English speaking guests to be present.

Our location rating is 97%! :) And we do think we have the best location possible. Because if we would be located in Old Town, then it would be really far from bus and train stations, shops and bus stop to airport. Now we are in the middle of everything. It is a small hostel here - only 18 beds. Though half of the hostel is common area, so you can choose where to chillax. So not sure what you meant by saying that its not very private place. Maybe a private room would suit you better next time.


Good kitchen and common room and pretty good bathroom. Located perfectly within walking distance on both the bus station and the old town. The private twin room isn't actually a twin, just a 4 bed dorm with bunk beds that they don't fill. If you are travelling as a couple this probably isn't ideal. We didn't appreciate being 'told off' by staff members while we were eating our dinner for not cleaning up our saucepan- especially because we had to wash up staff dishes in order to cook our dinner!

"Twin room" stands for two separate beds, not a double bed. In this case it is fare for us to sell 4bed dorm as a twin. Once we politely asked you to clean up your dishes, you were half an hour after the dinner and watching TV. There were other people preparing to cook so we had to ask you to clean up. I'm not sure why you took it personally. We meant no offense. P.s. If you had to wash someones dishes, it wasn't ours, i can guarantee you that:)


Perfect kitchen, also very clean and beautiful toilet and room . WIFI is fast , lounge is comfortable , staff is friendly and helpful, location is not bad, price is not expensive.......Nearly perfect hostel, I really enjoy stay here!

Hey guys, thanx for the good words! We are happy you evaluated our kitchen. We are happy seeing travelers cooking here!;)


The receptionist was very helpful and polite. Gave us lots of information on place to go eat drink and see.


BEST HOSTEL EXPERIENCE EVER thanks to amazing hostel's owner and manager Viktoras!! Huge rooms, lockers, common room and kitchen. Tons of good tips on things to see in Kaunas according to one's interests. Viktoras is such a great person to talk to. We even went togeter to a public sauna in a small wooden house on a frozen lake shore and threw ourselves into lake's cold water!!So cool. He helped me out finding a place I wanted to check out and the itinerary to it in the countryside. AČIŪ!

...said the globetrotter :) cheers!


great hostel to stay in. When i got there i was the only real client, the owner still took me and another collegue of him to eat in some local restaurant and then took me out partying. Nice and clean hostel, the location is great altough not easy to find as the sign is not verry big.


Great hostel!! Friendly staff, clean and great value for money. The hostel is centrally located and the directions from the bus station are excellent.
