Located in the middle of the old town, right of Livu square. There is no reception, but I was met by a nice lady who gave me the keys and showed me the place. I had a flat on the top (5th?) floor. The building doesn‘t have an elevator, and the steps might be a challenge for some travellers. The... More

This is a great hostel-this is my third time at this hostel. I love my stays there. Staff are so kind and helpful, rooms are very clean as are the toilets etc. Great area to meet people and to have a drink or too! The hostel is right in the centre of the old city which is beautiful. I love... More

Very well-organized, clean and neat. Private lights and powe-plugs on every bunker. Beer taps on the bar inside the very place. Welcome shots of Riga Balzam, and loads of shots on the pub crawl's warming-up sessions... and a gigantic shisha! The tours they offer are really great, and I do recommend the AK-47 shooting. The staff really makes a difference.... More

Everything was perfect. Superb welcoming, with all the necessary answers (and we had questions). Very safe, clean (just depending on your roommates), perfect location. Overall, great stay there. Highly recommended

Yep it's a good one. They've got it all sorted.. Location, staff, vibe, rooms, price.. I don't really need to write this review because they are already #1 on Tripadvisor..and I can see why. The bar crawl was a great way to meet folks and check out the town. We stayed in the 5bed private room because there was a... More

The Naughty Squirrel is located right in the middle of the old town of Rīga, within walking distance of everything worth seeing, plus the bus and train station. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They arrange various tours and activities each day, plus pubcrawls in the weekend. Rooms and facilities were always clean, thanks to the staff who were...

Choose this hostel! Ok it can be a bit more expensive than the other hostels close to it, but for two euros more you can sleep in a wonderful place. Reception is full of young people ready to give you tons of advises and to organize you a nice night out with all the guests of the hostel! Five stars!!!

I stayed 2 nights - one in a private room and another in a 4 woman dorm room. Both were great! There is a well-equipped kitchen which is one gathering place for the guests. It was clean and in the dorm room, my things were secure in a big locked cage under the bed. The staff is extremely friendly and... More

This hostel has a great vibe and everyone that we met were nice (guests and staff) . Would definitely recommend it to those who... More

Naughty Squirrel is in a perfect location in Riga old town. A short walk to the bus & train stations & in the charming old town area. The rooms are small but very clean & the bathrooms are neat & cleaned regularly. The common area is very social & has plenty of seating & there is a kitchen if you... More
