Located a short stroll away from the center. Helpful service, lots of information awailable on where to go and what to see, nice and comfortable atmosphere in the flat. Feels like coming home after a long day of exploring Riga. I was a solo traveler, coming to Riga for an exam and I appreciated that my need for a bit... More

Me and my friend, we were based in double. Room was great, cosy, clean, warm and inside was really silent and calm - so good place to get rest. The hostel is located very well, 15 min form the very CIty Centre. Inside was really nice kitchen with brekfeasts served, two bathrooms with shower and great living room. All interior... More

You can't ask more of an hostel. Very clean and tidy, very welcoming staff woman, right in the centre, good price, nice communal room with TV, phone, books and games. I didn't use the shower but it seemed great. Automatic lights in corridors and bathrooms, which is cool and saves electricity. Only problem is that you have to walk 4... More

Would 100% recommend this place. It's not a party hostel, as they say in their description, so you can get a great night's sleep. The atmosphere is homely and relaxed - they have a comfortable living room where you can play board games or watch TV and a kitchen with free tea and coffee all day. You can also help... More

I stayed at the Funky Hostel for 2 nights in early February 2014. I was very impressed, and it was an incredible value for the price. Not technically in Old Town Riga, but just about a 10 minute walk, which really is no problem. Eve is an excellent host, and I had no problem finding the place with her clear... More

We stayed in the funky hostel apartments with a stag party. It was nice and warm with plenty of comfortable beds, great facilities including a huge tv and a great stereo which you can easily play your own music through, also had a lovely warm shower.

My girlfriend and I stayed two nights in Funky Hostel. It is in a superb location (about 10-15 mins walk from all the main things to see). We were given a brilliant welcome, along with some great recommendations for where to eat what to see etc. The room was clean and most importantly very warm (it was -10 outside) and... More

Best hostel I have ever stayed with. As soon as I arrived, the lovely Eve sat with me, pulled out a map of Riga and began circling all the bests bits of Riga for me. Amazing service and Eve was always up for a chat. The room was clean and comfortable, the showers were decent and wifi was relatively speedy.... More

Really enjoyed the ease and simplicity of the Funky Hostel. Eve was very helpful, kind, and laid-back which was much appreciated. Excellent location and a really unique and cost-effective option to the traditional hotel.

My wife and I enjoyed a three night stay at Funky Hostel. We had a private two person room. Eve, the hostel owner, is a very friendly Ozzie and provided good insight into restaurants and things to do. Streetburgers and, if you have the scratch, Rozengrals medieval restaurant, are both highly recommended. The room was very clean and the bed... More
