The location couldn't be more central - absolutely perfect! Close to every attraction. The price is good, really cheap and worth it. The hostel could do with a bit of a redecoration, but it is very clean. The staff were very friendly, accommodating and gave excellent advice! Would definitely return

We had booked this hostel for three nights. We just left after the first. The place smells horrible. Old drainage and sewer smells. The staff were not very friendly and proved unable to help us as our toilet wasn't functional and they were not able to get someone to repair it. They apparently hardly tried to all day. We were...

The position of the hostel is in the city center near the dome. So the position is PERFECT!!! The beds are not confy at all, there is a bad small in the corridors due to the toilets. The linen of the beds are dirty. Wi-fi is so poor!You can find a better solution with the same money in Riga

Very nice hostel, and a great price. Very central, and close to most of the attractions in Riga. The workers there were also really nice and good in English! The bathroom and showers were clean. The only thing that bothered me, was the smell in the stairs.

The location is amazing, smack bang in the Old Town, less than a 5-minute walk from where the airport bus drops off.at 11 novembra krastmala. The staff speak excellent English (as well as other languages), are extremely polite and helpful, and always promptly answered e-mails even before we arrived at the hostel. All this for €12 p.n.p.p. in a roomy... More

Perfect location to visit the city center. Bathrooms were clean and nice. The lady at the reception was nice as well. I felt really comfortable there with my friends. There is a sushi restaurant near, a burger bar just across the street and nice self service diner downstairs.
