Booked on-line for a 5 berth room. We arrived 2 hours early and reception was happy to let us put our luggage in the room while it was finished being clean. Surprised to be given a room that sleeps 8, so we had plenty of room for my wife and I and 3 active boys aged 13, 10 and 7.... More

Sometimes, the devil is in the details with a review. I arrived at Tiger Hostel at around midnight and rang the bell to get in. No answer. I rang again, still no answer. I gave it a minute or two still nothing. About five minutes later, the girl came back from her smoke/snack break and let me in. Not acceptable... More

Just between the Old and the New Town, by the Riga canal, within walking distance to almost everything one needs! Airport bus, boat landing, train station, local food market, all within easy reach. Spacious rooms, equipped kitchen, clean showers & toilets - friendly staff. What else would you ask for? Free tea and coffee, too.

We stayed here in October 2011. The hostel is around 10 minute walk from the main bus station and Old Town. The hostel is very easy to find as its on one of the main roads with a bar below underground. The reception and hotel is very clean and basic. The staff were very helpfull. We had a triple room...

All the design corresponds to the name - even the bed linen and cushions. Really cute. Located close to the railway station which is convenient if you travel by train and stay only for a few nights.

Stayed in this hostel for 1 night during August 2011 with a few friends, so my experience is limited. We rented a 4 person private room. It was very affordable. I consider this an average hostel. The staff (we only met 1 person during our stay) seemed reserved but nice. Not very open to having conversation but she still answered... More

We stayed in this hostel in October 2010. There were a lot free beds and rooms, so we were upgraded from 8-beds dorm to 4beds room. Showers and toilets are outside of all rooms; but they are clean and comfortable, no problems with hot water. The hostel is situated very close to the tran station, big shopping mall and 10... More

I initially picked this hostel purely on its location just outside the Old Town as I didn't want a noise party place. It was a great decision. The location was perfect, located between the Old Town and New Town and right on a beautiful canal. Shops, supermarkets and bus and train stations were only a few minutes walk away. I... More

The hostel is perfect. It is precisely what you like to find when you are budget travelling. It's clean, quiet, with good (gender-separate) bathrooms. It has a nice kitchen and it is situated in a wonderful place of the city. Every room has a PC with internet access. The tiger motives are ...er... unexpected, but at the end they are... More
