I stayed in this hostel for 3 days. It has a pretty good vibe, the common areas are extraordinary and although I'm not a dorm-lover, I was in an amazing for beds dorm. Sheets are absolutely clean, pillows are comfortable and they provide with clean nice towels. It is not permitted to bring your own booze inside, but they have... More

Very well managed, clean bathrooms and private showers. Very secure with electronic keycards and lockers. Conveniently located inside the old town - 2 minutes walk to St. Peter's church. Great pub crawls and events. Helpful staff and good crowd :)

This huge hostel (I don't know how many beds they have, but plenty) is really a good place to stay: clean and confortable dorms, all the facilities you may need (including a bar) and several activities organised (such as pub crawl). Although the place is full of party-minded travelers, it was surprisingly very silent at night. Just one thing about... More

I loved this place. Absolutely awesome, would 100% recommend this to everyone and would definitely go here again. One of the best hostels I have stayed at in a while. The staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. The hostel was clean and the beds were nice and comfortable. You don't have to rent a towel which is nice. The... More

I have to admit, I would never pick another place to go to when I visit Riga as I had two amazing stays here before. This time I packed myself up and spent an entire week in this crazy fun city - and the first thing I did before I booked my flights was to get myself a bed here.... More

I absolutely loved my stay here! The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy with privacy curtains and individual lights and the location is right in the old town. The hostel staff are super friendly and although I was travelling by myself I was never alone unless I wanted to to be as the hostel common areas are really... More

My friend and I stayed here for three nights. We were in a 4 person female dorm. On arrival the manager offered us a shot of the local spirit, and was really helpful in showing us places of interest on the map. The rooms were clean, spacious and everywhere felt really safe. The bathrooms were cleaned numerous times a day... More

I can't even begin to rave enough about this place. Not for the meek, non-partiers, or introverts. I met so many people, and an absolutely incredible time during my stay here. The staff is fun, cheery, easy to work with, helpful, kind, informative, knowledgeable, and great at their jobs! The complementary welcome shot when you check in should really tell... More

I immediately felt at home once checkin into this hostel. They were friendly, gave some valuable advice about the city and hostel and as a welcome I had a shot from a well known Riga liquor producer!! That's what I call homely! The showers have good water pressure and dorm rooms clean and spacious. There is really great security measures... More

This hostel got really good ratings, so maybe I have been unlucky. The welcome was nice, but orientation to the rooms a bit tricky. Why not put signs on the walls to find the rooms in the different levels? My room was to the street, just above a pub which was loud very even after midnight. The curtains around beds... More
