Great cheap spot. Clean. One of the most comfortable beds I've slept in in months. All the staff at the desk are helpful and actually super hilarious. Wound up staying days longer than I meant to and I loved it. Fun activities at night where I met lots of other great travelers

This is a hostel like you want 'em: very friendly staff that are always willing to help, great price, great location, clean toilets and showers, sockets and a light above each bed, they organize pub crawls, they have their own bar with happy hour... I could go on and on. Except for sounds coming from the street it's pretty quiet... More

Staff were very friendly and give you a welcome shot on arrival. Location is great, just a few mutes from the bus and train stations and within the old town. Upon check in they give you a map and give you an overview of what to see and do and good, cheap places to eat nearby. Rooms are comfortable, the... More

Except for the endless stairs to get to the hostel reception/rooms, this was for sure one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! The rooms are quite big with comfortable beds, the toilet and showers are clean, and the staff is super friendly! I would recommend all to participate from the pub crawl. The places might not be so... More

The naughty squirrel is a great place to base yourself in Riga - central, clean, helpful staff, kitchen is small but has everything you'd need. A supermarket is almost opposite so buying supplies and food is easy. Rooms and basic and clean, common room is comfortable and warm. Great place to meet people. Had a small bar next to the... More

The only hostel we stayed in over our 3 week European trip, but that's ok because I think any other hostel wouldn't have lived up to the Naughty Squirrel! Location: 10-minute walk from main bus station, right in the heart of Old Town, close to everything! Hostel: up a flight (or two) of stairs depending on which floor your room... More
