Lovely place, nicely furnished in the center of Riga. Stuff is very friendly and they even make you waffles for breakfast! :) keep doing good job! :)) Hostel is always clean, maybe also because of "unless you're god take your shoes off" table. :))

Stayed here instead of the expensive hotel suggested for a conference, and it was definitely the right decision. Great location, comfortable beds, friendly people, fast free wifi and the whole place is spotless. As a backpackers' hostel I cannot fault it.

This place is SO loud and SO noisy! NEVER have I come across a place like this although I have stayed at many hostels around the world. If you think it's the location that's mainly behind the noise, think again! It's the PEOPLE, INCLUDING the staff (!). They are so inconsiderate and unrespectful towards people trying to rest after a... More

Our trip to Riga did not go exactly as planned - we went around Mid-Summer and it was raining pretty much consistently. The only reason why it was still memorable was in a large part due to this Hostel. The location is perfect - right next to the train station and five minutes walking from the buses. Its over a...

Greeted with a warm welcome by the very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely common area and nice bedrooms, both tidy and clean. They recommend all the local live gigs and events going on each day and are willing to show the top spots on a map. Would return in a flash!

The hostel is pretty much next to the train and bus stations which makes it really convenient for your arrival/ departure. And the old town isn't far away either. You need to know that the hostel is right above McDonald's though as you'd walk past easily since there is no big sign on the building. The atmosphere is really cozy... More

We chose the 10 seats room with their friends, and we stayed in Riga before the marathon event. We are very happy with your choices, because the hostel was comfortable , quiet and clean. Close to the city center, but near is a spacious parking lot ( the euro park ) . The whole city within easy walking distance .... More
