The Hostelz.com Review

Jimmy Jumps House is a fun, hip hostel right smack in the middle of Vilnius' historic Old Town. The hostel offers free breakfast -- fresh waffles made by the staff with Nutella and jam. Coffee and tea are free and available all day. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, though it seems to work best in the main building's common area and in the hallways and kitchen in the second building. The staff are friendly and available to answer all questions related to Vilnius.

The Location

The hostel boasts an excellent location a block from the main square and Town Hall (also the meeting spot for the Vilnius Free Walking Tour). The hostel is a fifteen-minute walk from the main bus terminal. From the hostel, you can easily walk to anywhere in the city. It is also around the corner from the "Republic of Uzupis," the city-within-a-city and one of the coolest spots in Vilnius. You enter through a tiny (most people will have to duck!) door; the main building with reception is on the right and a newer, second building is on the left. All doors have secure entry.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Jimmy Jumps is a large hostel (though spread over 2 buildings, so it doesn't have a large-hostel feel) and has dorm rooms with four, five, six, ten, and twelve beds. There are also private rooms for two or four people. The rooms are spacious with sturdy bunk beds, free linens, and comfortable pillows. There are large lockers in the dorm rooms and they even contain power points so guests can securely charge electronics. We stayed in a ten-bed dorm in the second building. The room was en suite; however, there were numerous other bathrooms right outside the room. There is twenty-four-hour hot water and the rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily. The bathrooms are spacious with ample space for towels, change of clothes, and toiletries.

Common Spaces

There are large common areas in each building of the hostel. The main building has a large kitchen/den space for hanging out and meeting other travelers. The second building has separate kitchen and den rooms. Both are spacious. The kitchens are well stocked. The hostel is a fun, social environment and it is easy to meet other travelers here. While Jimmy Jumps would not be considered a "party" hostel, such description would really depend on the people staying there. The hostel itself provides a fun atmosphere and organizes pub crawls for those interested in such things. It is also possible to get a good night's sleep.

Summary

Overall, Jimmy Jumps is an excellent hostel to stay at in Vilnius. It's location in the Old Town can't be beat. Vilnius is an incredibly cool city, and coupled with an amazing staff you will not go wrong with a stay at Jimmy Jumps.
