Why locals love it?
Tourism in Kaunas got more approx. 5 years ago. More and more plains were landing here and bringing bigger variety of travelers. City became easier to access. It is a bit off the beaten track. That's why backpackers just adore it. If there are real travelers in the city, there has to be a backpackers hostel and Monk's Bunk was the first one!
Why you should visit it
A small and social backpackers hostel. Guests are treated as friends rather than customers and staff members knows everything about Kaunas. It seems that you can find here everything you need: a big kitchen, laundry service, great common area, TV, Foosball table (very popular game in Lithuania), guitar, djembe, bicycles, tours etc...
On Wednesdays they organize backpackers pub-crawl including travelers from other hostels.

Monk's Bunk Kaunas is a sight for the sore eyes of a weary traveler! It is a home, a social hub, and a great base for exploring the culture-rich city of Kaunas- Also, Viktoras is by far the most welcoming and genuinely generous host I have had the pleasure of staying with on my 10 month backpacking trip across Europe. This place is a gem, don't let it pass you by.

This place is super awesome! Great atmosphere and be sure to challenge the owner Viktoras to a game of foosball or a spot of poker. And all the ladies dance to the musical instruments in common room - waaaaat Ill be back.

Hostel is amazing. The owners were so friendly and helpful, really helped us have a great time in Kaunas. They know a lot of people in the city, and in other cities as well and helped us find some really cool stuff to do!
