I can't say enough good things about this hostel. The staff are absolutely brilliant. The owner is really friendly, really approachable and fun. And that obviously transfers through to the staff that work in the hostel. During my stay one of the guys (Tom) took us out on his night off to show off some of the more local bars.... More

I was traveling to Riga by myself and booked my own room at this hostel to have access to social activities and wasn't disappointed. The location is good - a 5-minute walk from the airport bus stop (#22), the main bus station and the old town. The facilities are well kept and comfortable. They provide a towel as well. And...

Really lovely place with a great friendly atmosphere and nice art work too. The staff were so helpful too and we felt so welcome. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Great location too, close to the old town and the supermarket.

Great hostel on a great location, close to everything one traveler needs. Perfect place for meeting people, going out and having a nice time. It's not a party hostel but there is always something going on here so it was never boring. Staff does it's best to make you feel nice and welcomed.

This hostel has everything you need and bit more. We stayed over weekend in 10 bed mixed dorm. Beds were comfy and clean, lockers big and safe. We got very hot weather so the room was quite warm despite open windows. Place is very clean, nice-looking and well kept. Everything worked fine, staff is cool and nice and they knew... More
