[11:35:47 AM] Hara: Luck of professionalism. We've booked 4 triple rooms, 2 weeks before our arrival and when we arrive with my group, they told us that they have problems with the electricity in our rooms and they booked us in another hostel with lower benefits. After that we've asked them to find us another hotel and after a long... More

The main advantage of that place is its location: old city, quiet street, near railway and bus station. Something between hotel and hostel, with a common kitchen and toilets for 3 double rooms at every floor. Quite clean. Small room with comfortable bed. Good wi-fi. The reception is open 24/7 because the first floor is actually a nice café open... More

Good place to stay, but not very social like most hostels. The rooms are neat and clean. The showers does require a clean tho.

Discovered this wonderful hostel whilst on a recent trip to Riga and it was a delight. Great bar, fab and funky decor and the friendliest staff..particularly Karlus. Also a great singer, Alexis who had an amazing voice and wide repetoire of songs in many languages. There's also a quaint courtyard in the back which was a sun trap...perfect spot to... More

I suspect you need to wear earplugs to sleep if you're going to bed anytime before 7am in Riga, so I won't deduct points for noisiness outside the hostel. Our room was clean, and the staff was friendly. My only complaints are that the bathroom wasn't cleaned at all while we were there (2 nights), and it started to look... More

Great and helpfull stuff, nice rooms, quite clean but with strange smell in the shower room. There's also a pub/club/disco downstairs so it's very loud at night. But you will get ear-plugs (!!!) to sleep softly in a quiet reality ;-) No brekafast included is a great minus compensated by localisation of a hostel. Good place to stay for a... More

Rooms are clean, roomy and well furnished. It felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Everything was in very good working condition, the shower room was excellent. Very central location, within easy walking distance of the train station. Highly recommended. The staff went beyond the call of duty to help.

This hostel is located just in the old town - walking distance to all main attractions (and train station/airport bus stop). We took a room for 3 people. It was small but clean and nicely arranged. The price was fair. The only disadvantage was noise from outside and from neighboring room (two little rooms were sharing toilets and eating space).... More

Alla hostel has a warm freindly relaxed atmosphere. The staff are curtious, helpfull and on the whole speak very good english. The hostel is clean and serves traditional tasty food - although no breakfast is served before 11.30. However, this is not a problem as the hostel is centrally located and an earlier breakfast can be found in easywalking distance.... More
