We stayed two nights and then a third night after a side trip away from Riga. The common space is well organized and conducive to good conversation and flow among the guests. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is not too big, a good size to meet people but still have rest. Location is good about three blocks... More

I spent two night in this hostel at the beginning of July, 2014. It is located in a very good position, 5/10 minutes walking from the old town and very close to the coach station as well. The common room and the dorms are very spacious and the staff is nice, polite and helpful. Five star rank absolutely deserved!

They sell beer, juice and cider - so you dont have to go to the market for that! Important stuff, you know.. We were very happy to be here, and if we... More
