I have been to Vilnius for three nights and I decided to book this hotel (actually it is more similar to an hostel) because it was really cheap. Great value for money even if the breakfast wasn't so good. The receptionists were really helpful. They speak english and always try to help you if you need something!

The Gile Hotel has good basic economy rooms with shower, wc, desk, fridge and flat screen tv. But the hotel common areas need some social uplift. There's no bar for people to meet one another, and given it's an economy hotel, there should be a get together lounge for travellers, There s a conference room that should be converted into a bar-salon. The staff was not very helpful or genuine at reception. The breakfast was not good though its ecogical. If you're gonna do ecobreakfast, you dont have to make it taste like nothing. So they need a chef to make the breakfast tasty. So the location is, okay but a bit faroff if you walk every day, but taxis are cheap in vilnius, if you find a good one. A huge supermarket Maxima is next door with unbeatable prices. The room prices are good at 20 EUR per night for a single for a week's stay. Free wifi in rooms is a plus. Toilets are ecological.

Do not be fooled by the pictures and hotel's descriptions - "eco-friendly, organic" etc
The dirtiest (in many ways) hotel I've ever stayed.

First - inconvenient location, far from the bus and train stations and far from the city centre.
2-nd - rude, unfriendly staff
3-rd - unsafe, dirty and noisy neighborhood
4-th - uncomfortable room. We requested a double room, but got a room with 2 small twin beds. The receptionist told us "in our hotel we have only twin beds".
There is only one chair in the room, to eat together we had to use a night stand as a chair. There is no air conditioner in the room, but if you open the window you have to listen drunk people's "songs" all night.
Beds and pillows are very uncomfortable, DIRTY (!!!) sheets and blankets (see my pictures)
5-th - nasty, dirty bathroom. Mold is everywhere!!! (see the picture). Very uncomfortable shower cabin - there is no even a small shelf to put a bottle of shampoo or soap. Also there is no shelf over the sink to put the toothpaste or razor.

Two good things - 1) breakfast. Simple food, but tasty.
2) fast and reliable Internet in the room

Hotel Gile is a nice hotel for the money paid.
The room was nice and clean.
The staff speaks Russian and English. Very friendly and helpful!
Breakfast was not an open buffet but I more like a restaurant where you can order. So it was quite good.
I was exploring the city during the days and didn't really look for "fun" in the hotel so can't say if they have it in there.
When I go to Vilnus again I think I will again choose Gile hotel.

Stayed there for two nights, have to say really enjoyed it. Booked a room for 4 people but there was 5 of us that arrived to stay, they were more than happy to accommodate all of us in the one room and didnt charge extra for one more person. Great value, rooms are reasonable price. Staff couldnt be more helpful and friendly, helped us with anything we needed. They have free internet acces point for guests downstairs and free wifi throughout the building. Location is good, only 20 minutes walk to the old town. Would definitely recommend this hotel for young travellers.

We were in a student room because we stayed in hotel Gile for a whole month. The website and the price for the room looked nice, so we decided to book there. BUT: the rooms (we had a double room) are really, really small. The shared kitchen has NO plates, jars, pots, no cutlery, nothing - we had to buy everything at a nearby market. If you want towels, bed clothes, pillows or a blanket - guess what? You have to pay for it. Just the rent for this stuff is 100 litas (about 28€) per month and if you want to have them changed or cleaned another 20 litas. Then the next surprise when we wanted to check out: gas, electricity and wifi are not included in the price.
To summarize: Staying in hotel Gile brought a lot of bad surprises, we didn't like their attitude that you have to pay extra for everything although they cannot tell this when you check-in or do your booking. Although the location is good and furniture is quite new, we left with a bad feeling and will not recommend to stay there for a longer while.
