“The perfect hostel with the perfect location:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2009

After some days in Jurmala in a "hotel" this was an upgrade for me and my friend.
When we found the correct street it was easy to find the hostel.
It`s located in the middle of the old town with the Dome`s square and all the restaurants and nightlife. The room was big and nice with a bunk-bed,a table,two chairs and a great view:) There were 2 toilets and 2 showers on each floor,cleaned several times every day.Internet for free and a fridge with beer and water if we`d like to buy. They did also offer a 4 hour citywalk for free if we wanted:)
I`d definitely go back to this hostel:) I give it a top score! It`s of course not to compare with a good hotel,but for a hostel it`s great!!

Good value for money. We booked a 4 person room for 4 nights around NYE 2008. The room was basic, but had a quite comfortable bed, a table and some chairs. From the room we could look on Dome Square, so the location of the Hostel is perfect. The room was clean and so were the shared showers and toilets. They were cleaned every day. The staff was very helpful and can provide you with things like map and other information. Even though the staff do not all speak very good English, they really try to help you with your questions.

The main downside of the room was the 'thin walls', as the noise of other visitors was quite well noticable.

I booked this hostel based purely upon its location and cheap prices for 11 young men. The location did not fail to disappoint as it was in the middle of the Old Town meaning it was very close to all the main drinking spots. The Hostel itself was quite hard to find as the entrance is sandwhiched between two coffee shops with the hostel being located upon the third floor. Inside the hostel was extremely basic however we were only in the city to drink and thus all we needed was a shower, toilet and a bed. The receptionists were extremely helpful and a fridge in reception provided copious amounts of beer for a small fee. Overall the hostel was ok but it is not a place to stay with your significant other. As for the city of Riga, the jury is still out. Scenery wise it was beautiful however the people and police may need a crash course on manners.
