This is quite a large hostel with dozens of rooms and dorms. There are two common rooms and a shared kitchen area. The staff is available 24/7 and always ready to help. The common rooms, bathrooms and showers are constantly cleaned and this shows in the state of the hostel. However, this being a large hostel in an old building... More

The staff are amazing and made us feel comfortable the moment we came in. Rooms are extremely clean, as were the bathrooms. Beds were so comfortable and rooms kept at a good temperature. Communal rooms fantastic and a great spot to meet other guests. 5/5

Can't fault the customer service. The staff were just so helpful and so kind! Location is also outstanding, and it was a great stay. My perfect dorm room would have curtains and their own lights for each bunk bed, but it was comfy, clean and a good mix of people. But just a huge thanks to the staff who always... More

This is the second hostel I have stayed in after going to Barcelona last year and it was good value, clean and safe. The common areas shown online were one of the big things that sold the place to me on booking and they are spacious and the cheap bar ensures there are usually people to talk to at all... More

We arrived Sunday 10th of May and checked out this morning (14th May). I felt it was very important I left a review ASAP! Everybody needs to know about this incredible hostel. It is situated in the Old Town, tucked down a quiet side street. It has a very funky, eclectic decor. It is constantly clean, the staff clearly pride... More

What to say? Perfect location close to public transportation and to old city. Clean room, warm showers, cheap, friendly staff, a nice welcome drink. Good facilities with a bar. I think this is indeed the place to be in Riga

This Aussie run budget hostel is centrally located in the heart of the Riga Old Town. It is very close to most major attractions, to the bus from the airport and has a large supermarket and budget eating options close by. The hostel itself has a friendly and welcoming environment. The rooms are spacious and the amenities of a good... More

I don't even know where to begin. This is one my favorite hostels in the world. Many times I've visited riga and always have extended my stay. The hostel is very clean and comfy. And the best part of Naughty Squirrel is their staff. All the girls are super helpful and fun. They know how to party and make you... More

Went here over the Easter break after a recommendation of a friend. Travelled with one other friend. On arrival, the staff were very friendly and helpful (with a welcome shot which was nice). As it was a busy weekend my friend and I were split in separate rooms on the second night but the staff apologised and offered us a... More

Stayed for the weekend with a bunch of friends. They told us they had problems with big groups lately so we had to pay a deposit of 15,- each. Showers and toilets were clean.The room was ok. Pretty spacious and the beds were clean too. Each bed has a cage for your stuf (bring a lock) and a big towel.... More
