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

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
