I stayed for one night in a single room - it was warm, clean, the interior was nice and comfortable, the free wifi was good and the workers were very helpful. Very good location as well. A very positive experience, especially compared to some other hostels in Riga!

A best budget place to stay in Riga for a couple of nights. A very friendly staff, a very cozy place. Location is perfect. Even if you need to checkout at noon and leave the city in the evening, and it's cold outside - you have a lot of space where stay, have tea, use wi-fi or read a book,... More

I really liked everything. Very good value for money. Very clean and quiet. Just a jump far away from old town. Close to two shopping malls, market, train and bus station... Great location. The only cons from my point of view is the small kitchen. Nothing else. I strongly recommend this hostel to stay in!

Liked: Everything! :) The location (quick way to market, city centre and train/bus station), friendly staff, included breakfast, really nice rooms, fully equipped kitchen, good beds, cleanliness, security (safe place, lockers), laundry service. We stayed longer than originally planned. Definitely recommended! :)

A great spot for those who want nice Riga experience. Staff is very friendly, speaks English and sometimes Russian. The rooms are clean and spacy - the linen could be fresher but for the price you get it is all OK. This hostel is located not exactly in downtown but closer to the railroad station ( a block or so...

Definitely Price-Performance Hostel. I stayed two days in Central Hostel. Personnel was really warm & helpful. Hostel was really clean & organized. Toilet & shower were also so clean. I did not find anything wrong.

Clean and good size room for an affordable price. Great for travelers on a budget that just want to get a simple room and a good night sleep. Quite central, as it's 10 minute walk from the main station. Good Wi-Fi. Didn't have the best breakfast but that was the only negative point.

I'm a light sleeper so I really appreciated the peace and quiet at Central Hostel, Riga. The location's not brilliant, but the Central Station and Old Town are within walking distance, and it's easy to find. I left too early in the morning for the free breakfast, but the filter-coffee was ready at 7am which was appreciated. The staff are... More
