Easily the best hostel I have stayed in! Staff, cleanliness, location, price - all fantastic. Not to mention the pub crawl! The hostel also organise a number of activities like AK47 rifle shooting. Would go back in a heartbeat and would not stay anywhere else!

Stayed in March. Really great location and staff. Good for drinking and activities. They will organise shooting, bungee and bobsleds etc. They make you feel welcome from when you step in the door. The pub crawls aren't bad but we had better nights out going to our own choices, so don't feel scared about doing this.

Great atmosphere, nice people and really good parties! Right in the heart of the Old town of Riga, pretty close to all the must see attractions. Must go bobsledding and shooting. Too bad that during winter you are not able to go bungee jumping.

We stayed here as a group of 8 lads on a bit of a wild one, and aside from being told off (in jest) a few times for being too loud, it was excellent. We met some great people, and the pub crawls were excellent. Budget accommodation with an amazing atmosphere, and crazy cheap.

We just came to Riga for one night and we did not have any expectations to the hostel - just a bed, a shower and some nice tips for sightseeing. We got everything and even more. The waitresses are absolutely nice, funny and very beautiful. They knew everything we needed to know and explained everything about our stay. Some people... More

Fantastic Hostel. We went here mid-December 2013 and it wasn't too busy but still had a good atmosphere. Had a lot of fun doing the shooting, traditional Latvian dinner and just partying in general. Had good chats with the owners and all the awesome staff ;) and they were all very helpful and showed our group a great time. Cheap... More
