Hard to complain about a hostel that charges 6.5 euros/night for a 6-bed dorm and includes a decent breakfast Friendly staff. Laundry is 7E, same-day service at a nearby hostel. But I — and others — had trouble finding RH using the instructions they had provided. The last key sentence read: ‘You see McDonalds, turn left and take the first... More

This hostel is very conveniently located - the Old Town and Art Nouveau District are both easily within walking distance. The place is clean and comfortable and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The only slight negative is that my room was very near to the front desk and the sound of talking until late might keep some people... More

The location of this hostel is excellent, only a 10 min (or less) walk from the bus terminal and the train station is a stone's throw away. Easy to find, just look for McDonald's and take the elevator to the 4th floor. Staff were friendly, rooms & bathrooms were clean. A good breakfast (bread, cereals, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, spreads, juice,... More

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
