Very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Maps, with lots of where-to-go and what-to-do information given at reception. Lovely common space with a small, but very well equipped kitchen (had about 6 pots/pans with MATCHING lids, amazing!) Incredibly fast internet. Spacious dorms with excellent beds (sturdy, don't squeak, and are bigger than most). Great location, right on the edge of Old Town and... More

Nicest staff, coolest common room, spacious dorms and comfy beds ok us FREE cinnamon rolls and waffles very often. The hostel endeavours to have organised optional activities for guests, so if you're ever stuck for something to do there are options! Location is perfect and very easy to find. My only slight qualm was the second room I slept in... More

This hostel was per-fect! nothing missed, we stayed here for 3 nights and then went to a festival, afterwards, we returned to Riga and to this hostel, and it was no problem to leave our luggage, and we could even use the shower after a weekend not showering (festival-problems). When we came in, we had to take our shoes off,... More

The hostel is conveniently located, cosy and has a lovely atmosphere. The staff was amazing too, providing any help needed and supporting the social needs of the guests. Local activities were offered every day to make their guest more familiar with Latvian culture and night life. The place really amazed by good design, clean rooms and generally welcoming atmosphere.

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 stayed for 3 nights at this hostel, and I would recommend it to everyone. Firsly, because of its location. I arrived at the bus station, so it took me about 10 minutes to find hostel; the old town is very close as well. The room I stayed in (6 bed dorm) was large and beds were very comfortable, it...

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!

Stayed here for three nights, it's a great hostel with helpful and friendly staff. Location wise, it's directly opposite the train station and only 5 minutes walk from the bus station. Old town is easily accessible too. The communal areas have a really friendly and welcoming feel to them and the place is clean and tidy. Lockers are included in... More

I spend 3 nights here. I found it to be very clean and comfortable place. The staff people Juris and Baiba were wonderful to talk to. Its close to good groceries if you want to save money on food - Stockman and Remi. I came at an extra slow time, so socially it was not as active. This was a... More
