If you're looking for a cheap place in a hostel located in the city centre, this is perfect, especially for backpackers. The conditions are not wonderful, of course, but sufficient for a short-term stay. I come back to this hostel each time I visit Riga for a day or two due to its convenient location and prices. The staff is... More

Stayed here for one night on my way to London from Estonia. Unfortunately I had broken my hand so this hostel was a little more difficult than it would normally be. I had to make my own bed and the showers were the kind that you have to hold on which was very difficult with a cast on. This would... More

We spent the weekend with a group of 11 pax at Tiger Hostel. The location is perfect, right next to the main train station and the beatiful canal in riga. Old Town or City Centre - it's just a 5 min. walk. So you won't need any public transportation for the centre. Stuff was friendly and room were big and... More

Not too many people were staying at the hostel when I was there so it was quiet and peaceful. The toilet rooms and the shower rooms are separated and there were plenty of each so there was no waiting for the facilities. The hostel is only a few blocks from Old Town and there were plenty of restaurants, grocery stores,... More

We get a room for 7 people, since there were no available rooms for 2, but it was totally okay. Shower and toilet were really close, we had a tv in the hall, and all the needed things. The view from our window was right on the Riga downtown and it was beautiful. We spend only one night there and... More

I had to sleep somewhere and this hostel had a place to offer. I slept in a room with 16 beds (high and low, as usual) with 4 friends. The beds were really good and they gave all bedclothes + towel. Showers and toilets were clean and sopa was provided. In the little kitchen you could get coffee and tea... More

Well, we were expecting more tigers things;p but the owner in tiger dresses was funny;p anyway the hostel is in excellent location! just next to the station and the old town.
