For the price I paid (34Euros) for a single room with shared bathroom I expected much more. First I couldn't find the hostel. There's no sign whatsoever in the street or even on the front door. After 15 minutes of looking around I asked a photocopy shop (!) and as for magic the owner's phone number appeared. They told me... More

This is more like a hostel room with a very basic shared kitchen/reception room and shared bathroom with non functioning shower. I booked this place with the expectation that standards would be in the lower segment, but still was a little disappointed with what we ended up with. I didn't mind the poor kitchen area, but if you plan on... More

Pros: - communal kitchen - friendly staff - great location Cons: - we had no hot water and the staff tried to "fix" this by giving us a key to someone else's bathroom without even asking the other person, plus we had paid extra for a private bathroom which was then somewhat pointless - a very old and ugly building...

Location was good, it´s about 400 meters to the central railway station. The staff was very helpfull and nice. We had a apartment on the upper floor,... More

3 nights in couple, in a private room with bathroom. Apartment is not great but acceptable for the low price. The room was big enough, the bathroom quite clean. The owner very friendly and hospitable, we did have discounts at various places where we can eat and drink. Very close to the center, 5-10 minutes walk. There is no sign... More

I have recently been to this Guest House in the center of Riga. A few minutes by feet from here and you are at the railway station, and also very close to some big malls. It took my family and I 10 minutes (walking distance) to reach the old center of Riga, Vecriga, the old town, that is simply fantastic!... More
