The location is very convenient: between the bus station and the city centre. Check-in and check-out was easy, and it was generally clean.
The two main issues are lamps and electricity – weird that this even has to be pointed out to a hostel in 2019. The rooms need more lighting! In the 4-bed room, there was only one source of light, the ceiling lamp, and only two of three bulbs were working, which meant that half the room was in darkness. Each bed needs a small lamp – otherwise either everyone is in darkness or everyone is in light, regardless of people's sleep needs. Lack of small lamp next to my bed was very frustrating. Also very frustrating was the lack of electricity sockets: there were a few on the floor, but if you sleep on the top bunk, forget using your charging phone while in bed – and you'll have to climb down out of bed to shut off your alarm in the morning. Hygiene could also be improved, especially in the bathroom: someone's shaved hair ends were not cleaned up for my entire 3 days at the hostel. The bathroom is also very dark, and more lamps are badly needed: above the mirrors (you can barely see what you're doing when shaving or putting on make-up), and in the shower cabins. The shower cabins also really need more hooks/hangers! If I'm sleeping in a mixed room, the shower is the only place where I can change, which means that I'll need to take my day clothes, night clothes, shower accessories, and towel with me to the shower – but there is simply not enough hooks/hangers to hang all this in the shower cabins, and the floor was always wet and a bit dirty. Please include on your website that towels are NOT included in the price. When I asked for a towel, the receptionist said it would be a big shower towel, but after I paid, it turned out to be a small, paper-thin towel… Not fair at all.
The beds were fantastic. In room lockers with key.
No lights in shower.
Was available when Monk's Bunk had no vacancy.
Not social. Tiny kitchen. Small social area.
Nothing to be fallacious in R Hostel.
Mattress and pillow were dirty. Weird smell in the room. Pretty sketchy building. Common area was okay. Didn't spend the night there and ended up making another reservation for some studio apartment.
With a stay at R Hostel, you'll be centrally located in Kaunas, within a 5-minute drive of Vytautas the Great War Museum and Kaunas Castle. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, laundry facilities, and a library. A shuttle from the airport to the hotel is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
