I'm really happy I ended up staying at Cinnamon Sally's! It's a cute little hostel with a very cozy atmosphere. The location is perfect and so is the hostel! Everything seems to be very well thought of. This is a must stay!

Came here with two friends, stayed in a 4-bed dorm. The whole place was nice and clean. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The common room area was a great atmosphere for just chilling or meeting people, whichever you'd prefer. There was even a movie night while we were there. Great location, clean, no complaints!

Every travelling depends on the place you stay as a impression. I must say this is the best hostel of my 3 hostel on these trips. Super clean, cosy common area just like a flat you share with your friends, very nice bed ( I have stayed in 6 females room), and most important thing, the staff is friendly as... More

If you are mood to hang out with really fun people, do pub crawls and enjoy the nightlife you should stay in Cinnamon Sally Backpackers. Though it was quite hot here in July, they gave us a table fan. This place is close to old town and some good places to eat.

The dorms are spacious and clean (I had a hilarious Justin Bieber duvet cover!) The staff are friendly and make effort to organise events each evening. It's well located near the main bus station and also near many parks for outdoor fitness.

Perfect hostel. Living room is really modern and cozy, people are super nice and rooms are comfortable. It is located near bus station and center. A must if you visit Riga. Also they organize a lot of stuff and can direct you in the best way possible.

Lovely place with nice, clean dorms and comfy beds. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area, they gave plenty of suggestions of good things to see and do in Riga. It's easy to find and has a great central location. Fast wifi. Would definitely stay again.

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
