Great and welcoming staff. The were happy to help in anyway and offered lots of advice on where to go. The accommodation was ample. Just what was needed. Close to the main square but the bells weren't too loud.

Not sure why the reviews are so good. There is no security, the room wasn't ready (at 6pm), the showers are covered in mould and there is a frosted glass entry door to the room next to a 24hr reception...I've had better sleeps on a plane.

I liked the atmosphere very much, but I found ithe place a bit crowded and badly organized. I was asked to moved beds because the booking was not done properly. I also noticed an already-taken bed was given to someone else and that caused a bit of a commotion. The staff were really nice and friendly.

The Doma Hostel is very well situated in Riga. It's very good location makes exploring Riga very easy! Tourist spots and markets are close by! It is clean and well run, with a tasty breakfast. The dorms are spacious and well decorated! I would recommend staying here!

I choose this hostel because of the hosteling international but after a while traveling u learn that doesn't mean anything. Why I didn't like: 1 toilet and sink for all guests, 2 showers, not friendly staff, not a nice living room, tiny kitchen, room is to bright, no blackout, no locker for your backpack only a small on for passport...

I stayed in Doma hostel for one week. I really like the staff. They were nice and heplful. Everything was close (the restaurants, shops, cafés, the river, museums, library) I enjoyed my stay here. It is in the best location and the beds are really comfy. I'll come back again 💕💕💕💕

It was not so hard to find this hostel, because it is in the old town, although its on a small small street. Just if you go there with a luggage that has small wheels, you are going to have difficulties to move with it on the streets. The hostel staff was very nice and friendly in a funny way....

We were a group of 8 people and had a room only for us, that was very comfortable. Cozy atmosphere and the boss is really kind. The only two disadvantages were the tiny kitchen and that I got many spider bites. Miau Miau
