Klaipeda Hostel is a comfortable hostel with a convenient location.
Klaipeda Hostel is literally just across the road from the bus station. It is also incredibly close to the train station and to a large Iki supermarket, where you can stock up on food supplies. It is approximately a twenty-minute walk to get to the downtown region from there, but you can also take a local bus for a cheap price to get around if you don't feel like walking. It is also about a twenty-five-minute walk from the passenger-only ferry terminal if you are planning a day trip to the Curonian Spit. The hostel has loads of information on how to do it, and they even rent scooters for the day so that you can make the most of your experience. Otherwise there are bicycles and buses as an alternative.
Rooms and Bathrooms
There are two floors of the hostel. There are dorm rooms on each level with bathrooms and kitchens on each level as well. The rooms are quite spacious and they give you the sheets to make your own bed. They are quite comfortable to sleep in and each bed has an associated lamp and two socket outlets for charging electricals.
There are a combination of separate toilets, separate showers, and combined toilet showers within the hostel. They are all quite nice and clean to use and you never really have to wait to use them.
There is a living area where you can watch television, use their computer if you don't have access to Wi-Fi, and chill out. There is also a dining table here for eating dinner. In the upstairs kitchen area, which has more facilities than the downstairs kitchen, you can also find space to sit and eat. It is better to use the upstairs kitchen for full meal cooking, as the downstairs kitchen is more of a kitchenette and is less spacious.
Klaipeda Hostel is a really nice and secure place to stay during your time in Klaipėda. They have door codes instead of keys, so you don't need to worry about losing them. The staff are helpful and friendly and can give you loads of knowledge on what to see and do in the area. This is a highly recommended hostel!

Worst hostel ever been
imagine living in a two-room flat with twenty people. the kitchen consists of a kettle and a couch, where maximum four can sit. special extra -- the unfriendly and arrogant staff. and all this for just 13 -- unbelievable!
This is a great hostel, located next to the bus station, which is very handy if you happen to wander in late at night. It's a five-minute walk to the city center, which is small and okay. What makes Klaipeda a must-see is the famous Curonian Spit, a gorgeous peninsula ideal for a daytrip, and the nearby abandoned underground Soviet missile base. The hostel organizes cheap and qualitative trips to this base, which is awesome. That said, the hostel is very small. Although the walls are pretty thick, I can imagine that when it's a full house, things might get a bit noisy. But don't let that put you off, this is a great place and Jurga, the owner, rocks!
Klaipeda Hostel Reviews from the Web
Great location for bus station and nearby supermarket, bit of a walk into town. Very clean. Main complaint was the beds were very loud! Also room got a bit cluttered with peoples bags etc as no lockers in the room.
Only gripe is that there's no large lockers in dorms to feel more secure about my items while I'm out. They do provide small lockers, but I always feel far more secure when I can lock up my big bag. Otherwise, great hostel, kind staff and I had a wonderful stay.
Great hostel! Two kitchens, one smaller on the upper floor, all necessary equipment. Place might be a bit small when lots of guests. 20 min walk from citycenter, bus station and supermarket across the street. Not party hostel, quiet and calm atmosphere. Staff not always present, nice check in experience. Very good wifi. Electrical sockets by every bed. Recommended!
Small but good hostel. Great location close to the bus and train station. Nice kitchen, comfy beds and great staff, all nice and helpful! Very recommended!
Generally all right. However, please watch out for your belongings in dorms. My shorts were stolen from my bed.
We loved our stay here. The staff were so lovely and helpful. The place was comfy and the people we met were friendly. It has everything you need for a short stay. We hired bikes from the hostel too and went over on the ferry to cycle on the Curonian Spit, which we really enjoyed.
Klaipeda Hostel is close to the bus station but a 20 min walk from the Old Town, which shouldnt bother you. Staff is very friendly and helpful and you can meet people easily in the hostel (in case somebody travels Klaipeda as well). Clean facilities.
Its a really nice hostel in Klaipeda by the bus station. Two kitchens, and the kitchen downstairs is spacious and properly equipped.
East 20 minute walk to klaipeda center. Service-minded staff. A place im happy to return to some day.
It's okay. Don't expect too much of it. Common areas are small, very close to the bus & train station.
I love this place! The staff is super friendly, the place is always clean. Closely located to bus station and railway station and only 15 mins to the city center.
Perfect place to stay in Klaipeda for a few day !
Nice and clean hostel.
Location is great for transport, as the bus and the railway station are just next door.
Self catering facilities are rather limited, but at least it's possible to heat a ready made meal or maybe cook some pasta.
Gettingin the hostel is a little difficult, as the owner is not always there, so you have to phone (at international rates) or hoping the video communication is working perfectly well.
Furtheron security is pretty much okay, except the missing of a personal locker.
nice place and very clean. The kitchen is cosy and also the rooms. I can recommend this hostel
The hostel is directly across from the bus station, which is very convenient. Takes 10-15 minutes to walk into town/to the harbor, though. The staff were very friendly, and being able to rent a bike there was great!
Liked: Very friendly staff! Great security. Didn't like: A little expensive for Lithuania, but generally great.
Liked: Great location, very neat and cozy hostel, very helpful stuff. good facilities. Highly recommended! Didn't like: Nothing
Nice location (near bus and train stations), city center within a walking distance. Highly recommend
Liked: Located next to the busstation, good vibe, nice spot to explore the Spit. Didn't like: Lockers were a little small, only for valuables.
Liked: Very cosy and clean hostel. Right next to the train and bus station. Didn't like: Nothing
Liked: The staff is really great and helpful, they help us a lot to plan our trip to the Curonian Spit. A lot of services and tours are offer. I would definitely go back there. Didn't like: Not too many people when we were there so the atmosphere was only alright, but the (small) common room is nice, people can easily meet there.
If you’re looking for a friendly, home-feeling, clean and very good location in Klaipeda town hostel, you’re at the right place!
It is the perfect hangout and base for single travellers and sociable people, as well as for families, who want to be part of an interactive and lively hostel experience as well as maximising the city in the day time and seizing the night when the sight seeing has ended.
