Reviewed 25 July 2013

Positive: perfect location. 10-15 mins walk to all interesting places. Cheap price, nice staff - answered all the questions we had.
Negative: bathrooms were terrible. Showers were clogged so while you were washing you were standing in the water. Not very pleasant smell as well. No towels. No free towels, I would say. The towel cost 1 euro but it was ok, at least for me.
The weird thing for me was working time of the reception: from 8 am till 10 pm. There is nobody there at night, only phone numbers for the emergency call! So when we were leaving at 6 am for the plane we just left the key on the table. This may also cause problems if you want to get a taxi. We asked day in advance, but still the promised taxi didn't come. I don't know whose faul was it, but unfortunately it was hard to find a taxi in the morning in Vilnius, though we managed to do it

I booked this hostel last minute based on what I read on the Internet. They have a good location and the rooms are nice. Some are noisy because of the windows and the street being close by and some are much quieter. The bathrooms seems to have a serious water problem. Two of the showers backed up, which was pretty disgusting and water was always all over the floor. I usually went to use the bathroom downstairs because it was so much cleaner and water wasn't all over the place. The location was quite good. It's close to a lot of things and made it easy for me to walk absolutely everywhere. The staff were friendly, but had their friends over each night to watch movies making the television unavailable to guests at night time.

negative: the bathrooms on the first floor where extremely disgusting, and i have been staying in a lot of hostels all over the world, but these were one of the worst bathrooms. Mildew all over the bathroom, hair, always wet floors, no toilet paper, terrible smell. bathrooms on the second floor better, but still a lot of mildew. veeery slow internet.
we lived in a double room on the first floor, room was dirty (a lot of dust and hair under the bed, walls where all over stains due to water spotting, plastering was dropping off the walls etc).
positive: great location, friendly staff

When I saw the photos of this hostel, the issue of accommodation in Vilnius was immediately resolved. We wanted to book a twin or double room but they've been already booked, so we decided to book two beds in a mixed dormitory room. When we arrived we asked about double or twin again because we didn't want to share the room. The stuff was helpful and gave us the double for the first night and the twin for the second, so there were no problems with changing the room during our stay. The rooms are very clean and Wi-fi catches in all rooms. The location is perfect because everything is at hand. At the reception we were given a free map and the girl explained to us how to get to attractions. After check-out we had a lot of time before our train, so the girl at the reception allowed us to leave our bags in the hostel. Next time I will stay only in this hostel because it's perfect!

This hostel was really friendly. the staff is nice and really helpful. The location is just perfect as it is just near the commercial street, at the entrance of all town and +/- 7 minutes away from all the good pubs. The hostel was really clean and the room was quite big. A nice living room. I really liked the way the hostel was decorated, quite original. My only critic would be that the kitchen is a bit small (only two cookers).

Room Tip: if you travel in couples take a private room as the dorms contains 11 beds

Pogo hostel has impressed me in the best possible way! From the very beginning, when I was paying for the stay online and had some questions regarding payment, the staff was helpful and professional. When we arrived late at night, we had a very nice welcome. The dorms, living and kitchen area were great. I loved that there were windows in the ceiling and lots of light in the dorm. Beds were very comfy (mattresses are rather hard, but it's way better for your back than super soft ones). Bathrooms are fine. The interior of the hostel is very artsy, walls are decorated with with paintings. It's rather small and because of that very cozy and comfortable. The location is great, 5-minute walk from the central Vilnius Square and right near the Cathedral Square, in the very heart of the Old Town. Plasma TV screen with iConcerts is cool, but if you need to use the hostel computer, note that it's rather old and very slow.
All in all, this hostel if a very good choice, I would definitely recommend it.
