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

The hostel is great. Very nice desk lady welcomed me in the hostel and advised what to see in Riga. The room was very simple, but clean and comfortable. Bathrooms were available in few places. Mine was next to my room so I felt like it was my private one. Breakfest was very nice. Choice of jams and other vegetable... More

I spent 3 nights in this hostel. It is a very valuable place to stay in the heart of Riga. You can reach the city center in around 10 minutes on foot. Oposite to the hostel there is a railway station and Rimi market, where you can buy anything you need to eat or drink. The staff is amazing, always... More

rather clean hostel with all the needed facilities available. nice location and free breakfast gives it a plus. Staff is nothing special though. Though not unkind, they didn't seem too open for conversation either. Especially that reception guy with funny haircut turned out to be a total nutcase. Accidentally pressing the reception bell resulted in an irritated "dont do that"and... More

In Riga Hostel I experienced very good treatment by working staff. This obviously is hostel, not hotel, so demands or expectations should be reasonable. Hostel was clean (rooms, common area and bathrooms as well), staff was friendly both in terms of helping You in sightseeing and Riga's nightlife. In common room You can meet many socializing youths, so it's no... More
