For the traveler with a budget is a great place to stay. The entrence is not very welcoming, but the staff are. The rooms are very clean, and the bathroom(shared) are as expected. I liked because of the price and location. They have also free wiifii,internet(computer),tv and books.

The district is interesting, between the old town (15 min by feet) and the niera district (15 min also). Our appartment is wide, and well equiped. The funky hostel team is cool ! And not far away from a good and cheap restaurant, Istaba!!! Go to funky hostel and enjoy Riga, the city which remembers us Berlin in some ways.

We stayed in the apartment about 2 blocks from the main hostel. Room was clean and comfortable. There are 2 bedrooms, 1 with a Queen bed, the other with 2 bunks. Apartment felt like a cold war era place. Kitchen was old, but well stocked and did work after some figuring on the stove. There is a washing machine, though... More

Though located on the top floor of an apartment block with no lift, the hostel is in a great location and has a warm and friendly vibe. Staff are really helpful and there's a free breakfast included in the price, making it a very reasonable option. Room 5 (located at the back of the property) was large, comfortable and quiet....

unpleasant part was stairs, but if you will inform with the time of your arrival in advance, you will get help with your luggage. Eve (manager) is extremely nice and helpful. rooms and showers are clean. perfect location. enjoyed my stay a lot, would recommend it to travelers on a budget.

Would definately recommend the hostel and appartment. We stayed at the apartment slightly out of town but public transport was easy. Eve could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Appartment has everything you need, importantly wifi and bbc world Cnn on tv. WARNING when on public transport if your ticket won't work on the machine you must try all... More

We really enjoyed our 3 nights - 2 days in Funky hostel and in Riga. We arrived late in the night and since we already informed about our late arrival we had codes and key card to enter the building (thank you!!) which helped us a loooot :) The location was just 5-10 min. walk to the old town so...

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

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
