This really is a great Hostel, its clean nicely located and has some great staff, Soldier (not sure about spelling) is great and a really helpful and friendly person, she knows Riga inside out and went by all of her recomendations couldn't go wrong. Do not go to Riga without going the bobsleghing its pricey but a must..

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!

We stayed in a private double room with ensuite and it was perfect. The staff were awesome and so friendly, that we felt like we'd been staying at the hostel for weeks about 10 minutes after we arrived. There are 3 communal areas for people to socialise in, including a bar/kitchen area. Activities that can be booked are clearly marked... More

I understand why this hostel is the number one in Riga. Although it has a strange name, it is a cool, relaxed hostel in the center of the Old Town and has won a lot of awards (a.o. 9th best hostel in the world!). The (all) female staff is super friendly (although there are a lot of boys trying to... More

Stayed here with one friend for 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm. The rooms were clean and pretty standard. The lockable cages are a great addition not seen everywhere. The rates were well worth it. Now to the important stuff. The staff are brilliant, friendly and encourage everyone to have a good time and join in. The common room/kitchen/bar/reception/games... More

This was the first hostel I had ever stayed at so unfortunately now I have very high expectations. The staff were very friendly and didn't hesitate to answer our questions ever if they were a bit random and gave us some insights on how to look around on the cheap. The rooms were comfortable. Nice and quiet, good wifi and... More

A nice and fun little place, and incredibly inexpensive. It's not a short ride from the airport by bus - about half an hour in traffic - but it's a very short walk from the dropoff point. It's right on the edge of the old town, and there's tons of stuff to see within easy walking distance. The woman at... More
