I spent three nights in this hostel with my daughter during our journey to Baltic countries. We had two beds in a 6-bed dorm. Great location, it's only a couple of minutes walking from the railway station and pretty close to the bus station. There is also a large Rimi supermarked at the railway station where you can buy food... More

Convenient location - walkable almost everywhere. Near the Stockman store with a nice supermarket for take-away food. Near main rail and bus stations as well. Kitchen's not big enough to accommodate all the guests. A bit difficult to find at first because it is inside the McD and upstairs. I stayed there around Sept, 2014.

Nice spacious room, bathrooms where clean and wifi and towels are provided. Location is good. Our problem here was that they messed up our booking and only have us a room for one out of two nights. Their hostel was full so this was unavoidable but the booking agency had to find us alternative accommodation which caused inconvenience during a... More

My four friends and I stayed in Riga for the weekend and booked two rooms. The value for money was wonderful and so was the hostel staff. It was a very hospitable place with provision for breakfast, hygienic washrooms and friendly people. Us three girls stayed in a room with two comfortable bunk beds and the two boys stayed in...

The location of the hostel was very central and meant we were in walking distance to everything, However I'm not sure if the street was the best as there always seemed to be drunk / dodgy men hanging around outside - not great for 2 young girl travellers. However there was a MacDonalds at the bottom of the building so... More

Both the best and worst thing about Riga hostel was the location. The definite upside was how close it was to the train and bus stations (less than five minutes walk), and it was only a short walk (10 minutes) from the old town. However, the downside was that it is located on the fifth floor of a building, where... More

The hostel is very centric. We came by late night from the airport until the hostel. When we went upstairs we saw some drunk people on the floor dreaming. I think it is safe however with you have a baby or child maybe is not good to see this. However the places is close to old riga to see the... More

Extremely clean, well located hostel. I stayed with my family of four and we were very happy with our two day stay. Near just about everything one wants to see so you walk out your door and there you are in 10 minutes or less. The young lady at the reception desk couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful. Clean... More

The location is excellent, which is close to the train/bus station. Riga is not a huge city to walk around, so it's quite convenient for backpackers. Since it's in the central place, keeping the window open during the night could be a bit noisy. The staff members are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is simple but fine. There are... More

We stayed there for 4 nights. Great location. Hostel is located opposite the train station. Inside the train station building there is a large Rimi supermarket - open until midnight. If you like junk food you will be happy - on the ground floor there is McDonald's. The hostel is close to the city center. Amazing staff, friendly and very... More
