Only the rooms seem to below a Hostel. There is no share places (only a small Kitchen) and in the recepcion just guy who dont help to much to visitor. I think is not the best place to stay if you compare with other hostels arround. The best thing is the location.

The Red Nose Hostel was really nice. I stayed there with my sister for 6 nights. It's in the center of Riga, so the location ist brilliant. The connection to the airport is very good. At night it's a little bit loud from outside, but if you have no problems about that, it's a great hostel. It was clean for... More

Nice hostel, very conveniently located in the heart of the tourist district. The staff is very friendly. Very good value for money. With kids a whole room with bunk beds can be booked. Toilets are tidy and clean without any provisions though. Departmental store, restaurants etc are co located.

Hostel is small but friendly. Rooms are small but wouldn't really need a bigger one. Service is helpful and location is very good and street is not too noicy during the night. I can easily recommend this hostel.

It depends how many people are there. If few people, it is wonderful place. If many people, then may be problems with wc and shower (waiting when free and cleanness). I was alone in a room where were 2 beds. It was very small room and 2 people is too much for such room. Good place. In old town, quiet... More

Terje444, You are right! It is difficult to keep cleanliness 24/7 if there are 40 persons using shared bathrooms, but we try our best to check bathrooms as much as possible. More

It was my first trip to Riga and my first stay at Red Nose. I like Red Nose because of its convenient location, lovely decoration, cleanliness, comfort bed etc. Red Nose provides travellers all the things we need such as kitchen, fridge, microwave. Even that it locates in the city center, it's very quiet. For my second trip to Riga,... More
