We stayed at Doma hostel for a couple of nights and we're very disppointed. The hostel is well situated in the city centre at the market but bad to relax and have a rest from touristic trips or your journey. As loud music was playing every night long until 11p.m. one could hardly find a rest. Moreover you could hear... More

When we arrived at Doma Hostel we where told that our room is in another building 10min walking distance, which would be OK if we wouldn't have luggage. WiFi was working well. Room was large but bathroom was not very clean. The hostel was centrally located

We (3 adults, 2 kids) spent a night there early August 2014. The place is right in the old-town so it is a good spot. The staff was nice and very helpful (sent us a PDF document showing places where to park the car in the area with relevant information). There is quite some activities on the square nearby with...

Perfect position to visit Riga. Right in the center of the old city. Only 15 minutes (12 euro by taxi) from the airport. Price is low and rooms quite clean. Not the best hostel I've ever been beacuase of beds not confortable and the smell of the kitchen all over the floors.

Location is very good, right near the square and attractions. Bus station is a 10 minute walk from the hostel, nice restaurants and café's nearby. As for the room, you get what you pay for - its small but clean and with a bed, side table and chairs. Window blind was broken so was very light in the room and... More

Right in the middle of the old town you'll find this family run place that is deceptively close to every major attraction. We had a double room and the place was neat, comfortable and fairly well maintained. The lady at the reception is quite friendly and lends a patient hearing to how you would like to explore Riga.

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
