We lived in the palace in the center of Riga just for 8 LVL for person! The location of this hostel is perfect. We lived in the dorm for 6 person, the room was not big, but for sleeping it's enough. The toilet and shower were clean. The staff is very pleasant. You can drink coffee or tea, use an... More

Well we were two companions on business trip while we stay in Riga for one night only. The hotel was chosen because of location and very low price. Indeed, the location is just the best, in the heart of Old Town, but also close to public transport, to the airport bus stop. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. However,... More

The Pearl Dome is located AT the centre square of Riga, so the location is perfect. From our room we had a view of the square with the churches and the terraces of the restaurants and bars. We booked a room for 3 people, so we had a room to ourselves (with 7 beds). The bathroom and shower are down... More

While location is very good indeed there were some things i didn't really apreciate. It was rather cold, some of rooms are connected doors with another so it can be quite loud if you have neighbours. Service was kinda messy at first - hostel was booked for us and there was agreement to pay via bank transfer during the stay,... More

Stayed at the Dome Pear for 3 nights and it was an average, basic hostel. The staff was friendly, and we booked a double room for two which turned out to be a huge room designed for six people. The room was pretty clean, and the two bathrooms on the floor were decent. The hostel did not have much of... More

We booked a room in the hostel far in advance but when we came to the hostel we were told that there was no room and they had booked another hostel for us. The main point was the location and thus we were greatly dissatisfied. Besides the staff claimed they gave us a notice by e-mail which was not true.

Very basic hostel with excellent location in the centre of the Old Town. Staff was friendly and helpful. I was disappointed because they never mentioned that payment with credit cards wasn't accepted. Also free WiFi wasn't available as they had promised. Be aware that there isn't a lift at the hostel. However, location and price for this hostel are unbeatable!

I am basically in agreement with other reviewers. For what you pay (we paid about 10 lats - £15 - per night), you get a place to stay in the heart of Riga with great staff who advised us to visit places such as Mezaparks (which was great) and Jurmala (which we never got round to), as well as being...
