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

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
