My boy, Binky, did litter train fairly quickly. I mean, it's not like a cat or dog, but 85-90% in one spot and not pooping on your lap = success in my eyes. First, I figured out where he went most. By the food, as others noted.
I never change the litter when I change the fleece. For whatever reason, that cuts down accidents.
Also, when training him, when I spot cleaned, I'd manually move the poo into the litter box. That probably sounds ridiculous. He does 90% of his business in the box... except when he's in the kitchen. He doesn't care about his box in my kitchen and pees all over my floor.
We're working on that.
He doesn't go on me, though. He did the first week, but now he nudges me when he wants to go back to his cage.
I suspect Bilbo will litter train quickly, too. His owner told me he wasn't trained, but he went straight for the box and seemed to know what it was about.
