The running of Doma Hostel is... interesting. The two ladies on reception over daytime periods were both incredibly friendly; however the weekend receptionist's English left a lot to be desired (she speaks good Latvian, Russian and German however, so if you can communicate with these you will be fine). The receptionist on the Friday spoke better English and was also... More

its a small family business in the absolute centre of vecriga. very noisy and fairly clean. to be honest the location isn't that great as riga is so small. but for a basic place to rest you head and put down you backpack it was perfect. the staff are very helpful if you ask questions and always friendly.

Although we booked a 4-bed room there were some problems with the room and we were put into 12-bed dorm. The room was alright though and discount was offered. Basic but clean and the beds were alright. The noise from the streets might disturb when the windows are open but the location also gives you great advantage when visiting Riga... More

As a mature age travelers my sister in law and i found the dome hostel very friendly, sure the rooms were shabby and the bathrooms pretty ordinary but this was made up for the location of hostel and the very friendly lady who ran it, all in all a very pleasant stay.

The hostel is in the very center at walking distance from all Riga attractions. On the other side it is very dirty and smelly, our group slept in 3 different rooms and many of us found bed bugs and were bit by bugs during the night. The carpet seems to have never been washed and the linen doesn't smell so... More

This hostel was difficult to find, however we had the address and the lady at the tourist information center was able to help us out. The receptionist was very friendly and managed to give us a lot of helpful information despite her limited English. We stayed in a private room with two beds. Our first issue was how incredibly noisy... More

I stayed at the Doma Hostel in April 2007 and had a reasonably enjoyable stay. The hostel is about 10-15 mins walk from the bus/train stations and apart from all the cobbled streets i had no trouble getting there. The woman at reception wasn't very good however, and managed to photocopy the wrong side of my passport which several days... More

I can handle a 'less-than' fantastic hostel, but when a property showcases themselves as 'newly renovated in january 2006' and clearly is not - i can not abide false advertising or blatant lying! The Dome Hostel was not renovated recently. It's old, uncomfortable and smelly. The carpets are grubby, the rooms are dark and smell of old body odour trying... More

The hostel has an excellent location right in the centre of the old town. Although this means it can get a little loud occasionally with people coming out of pubs in the evening, the location is unbeatable for all of Riga's top sights as well as all the restaurants and bars. Facilities were basic but clean and beds were comfy.... More
