Perfect ! I was there with a friend for 2 days. The hostel was great with its several commun rooms, the bedroom comfortable and nice, the walls funny with their paintings. But the best was the welcome, the ladys were amazing, and incredibly friendly. One of the best hostels I ever been. And they have free access computers and several... More

We had a really nice stay in the NSB hostel! With a group of 17 students, we were here in February 2015. Although the hostel usually doesn't accept groups of this size, they made an exception for us, which was really nice. The hostel was easy to reach from the airport (take bus 22 and walk for a few minutes,... More

Good location, 100m away from the main bus station and the airport bus (22). The hostel staff were very friendly (offered lots of advice, including a good bar/restaurant) and the place had a great atmosphere. Room was small but warm and clean, so no complaints. Price was £30 for a double room so reasonable. Although we only stayed one night... More

As Andre already mentioned, this hostel had a good vibe and the hostel staff made the extra effort to get to know you and have fun. We played drinking foosball, shoot some guns and went bobsledding! There was loads of other activities to choose from, if only it wasn't a weekend trip we could have done more. Thank you Nuno,... More

I think main reason why i loved Riga so much is this great hostel. First, stuff is great, girls were so nice and funny. Moment i arrived i got Balsam (latvian drink) as a welcome gift :D Rooms are clean, cleaning lady was cleaning more times per day. Oh, and they have shooting from kalashnikov and bob sliding in their... More

The lads decided to head to Riga for the weekend and choose this hostel to stay here after the reviews given. They were right! It is perfectly located in the heart of Old Town Riga and definitely easy to get to from the airport. The Naughty Squirrel has many activities to keep you busy particularly in the winter! Bobsledding, husky... More

The location is perfect. Close to the old town, an intetnational bus station and A LOT of restaurants and bars, including a 24 hour one. All the staff was extremely helpful. They have a bar and a kitchen just next to the reception. The only downside was that the doors were extremely loud when closing.
