This hostel is close to the bus station, which is definitely a big advantage. But we didn't get a city map (shouldn't it be given in hostels?) and..there is no hot water! A little disappointed but still not a bad choice for a one night stay.

If you're just looking for a place to rest your head in a good location for a reasonable price then you can't go wrong here. Downsides for me where: 4 flights of stairs (not ideal with luggage). Security, door to my room was quite flimsy, no lighting in the dark passage coming back to the hostel at night. Bathrooms very... More

It's located in the Old Town, close to the bus/train station. It's adapted hostel in an old building with lots of stairs. ;) I liked it. And I loved the bathtube. :) The room (6 people) was clean, sunny in the morning but didn't have nice view (maybe the other 6people room had better). There are no lockers in the... More

I stayed in this hostel in May 2013 and it was my first experience of visiting a hostel. It was nice, clean, with rather good and simple breakfast (toasts and jam). We stayed there for 2 days and i can say that it is the best option for a short trip. The place in 2 steps to St. Pietri and... More

If you are going to visit Riga to run across the city all day long and need the place to put your head on the pillow overnight, then you should choose this one. We came here very early in the morning (at 7 a.m.) and were admitted to drop our bags at the reception until our reserved room has been... More

Unfortunately, there is a nightclub underneath the building which plays music very loudly from Wednesday-Saturday meaning you will find it very difficult to sleep on those days (unless you have been partying too!) The hostel has many good points, a great location, very good value for money, free internet that actually works, a good kitchen with plenty of utensils. I... More

The hotstel is in a convenient location right inside the old town, although finding it at first can be tricky - the entrance is in a backyard. Pros: The receptionist was nice to show us and explain everything and late check-in was no problem. Everything was hassle-free. Cons: the hostel seems to be located in a very old building, with...

Great location, however the lower floor was not very clean, especially the shower that had a bit of mould. The room was nice although it seems to be very close by to a nightclub which means it was very loud, even making the windows shake. The mattresses were so thin we could feel the metal frame of the bed, making... More

This hostel is clean, cheap, central and friendly. Ordinarily I would have happily given four or five stars. Sadly it was let down by the nightclub somewhere in the immediate vicinity. On the top floor I could hear head banging, violently loud music every night from ~1 to 7am which made sleep impossible. It was utterly unbearable
