This hostel was great. They had activities organised every night from karaoke, pub crawls to Latvian food night, so it would be ideal for single travellers. It was also a good sign to see the owner involved in the daily running and upkeep of the hostel. The common areas and the bathrooms/toilets were super clean. The hostel is located really... More

I stayed here based on reviews and I've gotta say there reputation proceeds them. They greeted me with a shot of the traditional drink of Riga- Black Balsam, that was a wonderful way to start my stay. They gave me an overview of what the hostel offered and then proceeded to map out for me anything and everything I could... More

I've stayed at 50+ hostels over the past 12 years and Tthe NSB is one of the best hostels I've experience. Yes it's an experience. It's very clean, well layed out and has a great atmosphere if you are interested in meeting fellow travelers. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It's also in a great location. Win-win-win.

The hostel was a really fun place to stay. They had pubcrawls on the weekends and the staff was super friendly. My friend booked the wrong month so he had to stay somewhere else, but the staff welcomed him to hang out with us the whole time and he participated in all the activities organized by the hostel.

Usually I'm a bit sceptical of accommodation near to the bus and/or train station as the area does not tend to be the most salubrious. However, the Naughty Squirrel is perfect! Right in the heart of the old town yet only a stones throw from the bus and train station. On top of that the friendly staff and excellent facilities... More
