I spent 10 days at the Central Hostel before starting my Erasmus Experience and while waiting to find an apartment. I can say only good things about this place. People were extremely nice and friendly. The room really spacious and well-designed. The location is not properly central but if you've been to Riga before it takes just 15 minutes walking... More

I was impressed about the selection of herbal teas and there was a coffee maker with real coffee.There was free internet in the lounge and in the hallway and I... More

Positive points: free wifi and internet computers, friendly staff, quiet hostel and neighborhood, close to bus station( 15 min by foot). Cheap hostel. Negative points: there isn’t a lavabo in the single room, the free breakfast is only juice, jam and bread. In general is a good place to stay in Riga, with good cost-benefit relation.

The triple-bed room is smart and clean. Toilette and shower also very clean. There was no noisy. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only minus is the very small kitchen, but breakfast was quite good. Great place for weekend in Riga.

seems good value for money > dirt cheap deal in booking.com and well situated hostel, comfortable parking if you come with your car. BUT BEWARE of BEDBUGS! normal hostel could not afford this kind of issue for long. information travels at light speed. stayed on 2nd floor room # 26. hostel owners should take this issue very seriously.

The double-bed room is clean and designed. The location is good but not that near from the train station (10-15 minutes walking distance), and around 15-25 minutes walking distance to the old town area. Breakfast is so-so. The Staff is very friendly and helpful.Toilette and shower room is clean.

I spent a prolonged weekend friday to monday at the Central Hostel, partly chosen because of the recommendations here at Trip Advisor. After overcoming the challenge of finding the plce - we managed to misunderstand the very detailed directions from the hostel - we soon found ourselves in a beautiful little room up under the roof, with visual rustic wooden...
