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

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.

One of the best places I've ever stayed which I totally didn't see it coming. I literally can't find any weakness out of it. Great staff, awesome location, good price, clean room, fun activities! The staffs are there 24/7 and are all incredibly nice to answer and help with any question. They arrange many activities including pub crawl and AK47... More

Great hostel. The common room is a cool place to hang out and chat to other guests/back-packers, or to use the computers/internet or watch a film. There is also another small room with table football. Staff were very friendly and helpful with regard to any information required. My friend and I had a twin room on the same floor as... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during my stay in Riga. It was clean, centrally located, and the atmosphere was just great. The girls in the reception were really helpful and friendly too. Also, there is a 24 hour bar so you cant really go wrong with that. I would highly recommend this hostel!
