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. In shared rooms there are too many beds in too less space, You're sleeping just next to someone's else face and the only thing that divides You is the... More

Great location. Clean rooms. Wifi not always working. And very impolite staff. They don't bother if you tell them there is no hot shower, but only cold water. Not helpful if you ask anything else either.

Let's start with good points: - localization- really close to old city, shops; - price; - really clean and tidy. And that's generally all good things that I can say about Tiger Hostel in Riga. Disadvantages: - poor equipment in the kitchen (no place to cook, only microwave...); - you need to switch on showers every 10 seconds because it's... More

Prior to travelling reading the last review on here and a number of other review I was initially worried we would have made a horrible mistake and would be left in a hell hole.

As experienced travellers used to hostel and equivalent accommodation in Eastern Europe this hostel was without question the worst experience. Rowdy fellow guests were screaming and laughing until 0530am - exacerbated by non-existent walls - rooms are separated by paper tin partitions, 10 bed dorms are sharing noise with twice as many people. Signs at reception regarding no alcohol policy... More

What I expect from Riga is not what I expect from other cities as I go there for dentist only, so I also don't expect the same from Riga hostels as I would elsewhere. Tiger Hostel doesn't have the "coolest" staff and it has never felt like a back-packers place which I usually prefer, but this is just perfect for... More
