I have stayed in many hostels and B&B's around the world, and nearly every hostel in Vilnius, and this is one of the best, certainly the best place to stay in Vilnius if you are on a budget. There is a choice of private rooms or a shared dormitory, both excellent.
I have certain criteria when assessing a place, for example, is it clean, quiet, well-located, and comfortable, and Vilnius Home B&B gets top marks for each. Rooms, bathrooms, and kitchen are immaculate, as is the bedlinen, beds and mattresses, also warm and comfortable (from IKEA!). Set back from the street it is also very quiet, no matter how much traffic are how many nighttime revellers are passing by. Location is perfect, a short bus ride from the station (although you can easily walk), the bus stop almost directly outside. All the best bars and clubs are close by, as is the city centre and old town.
Best of all the people who run the place really care about what they do and it shows. You get a warm welcome, lots of useful information about the city, and free breakfast (pancakes, cereal, fruit, coffee and tea, etc.), plus you don't get nickel-and-dimed with the extras like other (cheaper) B&B's and hostels I have stayed at in the area. For example, (and just off the top of my head), you get not one but two good-sized towels for no extra charge, in the bathroom there is shampoo and conditioner, soap, toothpaste, cotton buds, and various other creams and lotions, again all provided for free. You can borrow an umbrella if it is raining, or a pair of slippers for walking around, there is even something to clean your shoes, all for free. And I am sure these little touches will only increase as time goes on (the place has only been open since last December).
There may be other places that are cheaper in the city but as I said, I have stayed at them all and they just don't compare. So if you want a good night's sleep in the centre of Vilnius you will find Vilnius Home B&B hard to beat. I for one won't stay anywhere else now when I visit the city.
