We had an amazing time, with a very nice and clean oom/bathroom/toilet/shower, it was all very clean :)! The living room was very nice as well and felt like home! Beside that they offered a lot off things you can do and they had a lot off very good tips too. It was really a good hostel, you felt like... More

This hostel is one of the best I have ever stayed at. That's across Europe. Oz and Nz. Firstly, it is a good location about 10 minutes from the coach station and about 5 from the train station. The directions on the website were very clear too. The hostel shares a door with McDonald's! Which I like for obvious reasons... More

Cinnamon is the cosiest hotel I've ever seen. The people are super friendly, even if you have just arrived they just make feel like home, the living room is a great place to be, very cosy, a lot of space and with very cool decoration. It's not a party hostel but that doesn't mean you can't by beer or cider... More

I had a great stay at this hostel in overall. The lockers were big, facilities clean. The staff was really helpful and we had fun in the common area. I had read before about the location under a McDonalds, but this did not bother me at all. I recommend it in Riga.

This place is really amazing. The staff is so wonderful you can't even imagine. The common room really feels like a living room at home and it is great to meet new people there. There is free waffles in the morning as well as free tee and coffee all the time. The location is great to explore the city and... More

I loved the hostel! Unfortunately, I stayed there only for a night - but I will definitely come back. Before coming I had some questions as I arrived quite late in Riga and Mairita answered super fast and was always helpful. The hostel itself was easy to find, close to the station and the bus to the airport. When you... More

A very cozy hostel. A nice set-up. The living room felt like home. Very clean bathroom, bedroom and toilets. Probably the best hostel in Riga and one of the best hostels we have ever been. City maps available and helpfull staff.

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
