Me and my friends stayed in the Red Nose about a week ago and booked the 6 bed mixed dorm room with the 5 of us. The hostel is located right in the center of Old Town where pretty much everything is what you need and want to see when you're in Riga. The place was clean and beds were... More

I reviewed the Red Nose in 2013 and gave it an Excellent rating. Unfortunately, I cannot do the same in 2015. I visited in March to do a pre-trip check before my large group traveled this summer. I am grateful I checked even though I expected to find it in good condition. It was no longer the bright and clean... More

Red N, Manager at Red Nose, responded to this review

After this spring we have fixed all problems, now all mold issue is done, everything is clean and nice. We had problems with roof and walls, but now it's solved. We discussed together at special meeting about "non-guests sitting near the desk", so after this situation, there will not be people who are not guests or part of staff. If... More

Red Nose is located in the middle of the old town. The location is very good. The people who worked there were friendly and nice. But the place is quite run down and the shower/toilet for the rooms in the backyard are not very nice. Beds are ok. We had better value for a family room at other Hostels in... More

Nice place to stay. This hostel is 'famous' that it's quiet hostel, don't have a bar, so no drunk people and loudness. And it's clean and very central, but on quiet street, next to Galarija Centrs(main shopping center in Old town)

I stayed at the Red Nose in the beginning of June with 13 friends for a bachelorette party. It's excellent situated in the old town and we walked everywhere. The staff was friendly, helpful and informative. The rooms are clean and excellent to share. I can recommend asking for room 8 which is a quiet room with its own toilet.

Red Nose Hostel seems like a hidden hostel jewel as not many locals knew about it. The booking process was easy and the location is excellent. Really easy to locate and walking distance from all points of interest around Old Town. There is no elevator so you have to climb the stairs. Take that into consideration if you have lots... More

Easy to localize behind the S:t Peter Cathedral (the one with the highest tower in old city). Getting there from airport, take bus 22 (info desk before exiting airport will help tourists). Get off the bus on first stop after crossing the river and go behind the S:t Peter's Cathedral. The hostel is sort of on the backside of the... More

I stayed for one night here from 19 until 20 April 2015. They have complete and quite brand new kitchen set. Tea is for free. Wifi also quite fast. The shower and toilet also clean. The location also in the middle of the old town of Riga thus it is very comfort to start to explore the old town. The... More

This is a perfect location as it is very central in Riga. For the price the room was good and there was never any wait for the communal shower/bathroom. Lost a point for us have to wait for around 15-20 minutes outside when we arrived as there was no one at the front desk or answering the buzzer. Otherwise would... More

We (2 girls) booked a 4 bed dorm for the long weekend. We had a nap and were woken up by a weird old man who turned out to be sharing our room. He kept staring at us and made us feel uncomfortable so we asked the staff to move us. They moved us into a 12 bed dorm without... More
