Incredible choice in Riga. The location is just perfect, the staff cannot be more friendly and the price is amazing, even more once you realise how they treat you. It was really quiet and clean, and the atmosphere was like feeling at home. Riga is a great place to visit and, when doing it, it's really worth staying in Red... More

We were 9 friends staying in a 10 bed dorm and we had the dorm to our selves. The room and beds were nice and the receptionists were nice. The only bad thing was that we had all of our money stolen by the cleaning lady. They checked the surveillance and the only one that entered our room was the... More

Perfect location right in the middle of the old city and a 5 min walk from the main bus station. There was only one shower per floor which meant that we had to share one shower with 16 other people. This caused a massive wait in the morning. The hostel doesn't have a common room which makes it hard to... More

The hostel was in a very good location and the rooms were very tidy. The place didn't have a common room, which was a pity, but it didn't really make a difference as we only stayed for one night. The girl at the reception was very helpful and just a delightful person. Free coffee and tea is useful, especially after... More

Staff however has very ice, especially the boy. Wouldnt recommend it for large groups of... More

I've been staying here with project members from LT and we were supposed to live in a room only for women and man in another. We don't know why, but in my room were send two strangers to live. We even weren't staying in one room with our team members guys, so why should I sleep in one room with... More

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
