We've stayed in a double bed room for 2 nights. The room was very comfortable and spacious !
The staff (Eve) is superfriendly and gave us a lot of good recommendations.

By the way. The stairs are very easy to climb and there are less than you think.

Absolutely recommendable.

The location in excellent! Rooms, bathroom and toilet are clean. they provide us with light breakfast as well. the host is absolutelly fabualous! She is Aussie - very friendly, helpful and informal! She provided us with all interested information in Riga. We had a separate room for two. And we felt ourselves not like in hostel, but in the small hotel. Higly recommended for short visits if you wanna save your money and have good reasonable service.

Eve (who runs the hostel) is a superwoman! Due to being on a night bus for 42 hrs I wasn't able to confirm my booking. I even showed up a day later. But eve was ok with this and quickly organized around this. Her flexibility and enjoyment for making everyone's stay brilliant is beyond what I've experienced before. I was after a chilled out hostel and that's exactly what I got. Felt very comfortable, safe and cleanliness was immaculate. Couldn't have asked for more.

Stayed there 2 night with my parents and we loved this hostel the most in our trip.
The main reason for it was the stuff, who was so helpful, kind and welcoming, that
everytime you saw her you just had a good mood. It is really rare that stuff is that friendly, which is sad because it could cheer up your trip easily. She showed us places that we would never choose from the maps, restaurants for my parents who can't speak English but in that special ones they show it to you.
I liked the location of it, it is really near to the main center, to the parks and the bus/raailway statiton is 10-15 minutes away. The room was nice too, seems like it was painted recently. The only thing which was .disadvantage is that it is on the 4th floor with no elevator (and we had 6 luggages) but the stuff was helping with it too. I'm very staisfied with this Hostel and recommended to everyone, who wants a friendly surrounding for the trip.

Spent 3 nights in Funky Hostel's private apartment, just down the road from their hostel. Huge spacious 2 bedroom apartment, on the 6th or 7th floor of a walk up. Big kitchen, living room, bathroom, a room with a queen bed, and another room with single beds. TV with DVD player, washer and dryer, bathtub. We were only 2, but plenty of space for a family with kids. Eve, the manager of the hostel, took excellent care of us, even coming to out meet us with maps and brochures. She also provided food for our breakfast. Excellent home away from home. Thank you, it was exactly what we were looking for!

Stayed in a double room, it was very big and comfortable. Very quiet, only 5 rooms in the hostel and window on a quiet courtyard. The free breakfast is definitely a plus. The staff was very welcoming and took time to sit and chat about where to go and what to do in Riga. Very secure with electronic card to enter building and room. Last floor without elevator might be the only down side for some people. I recommend!

I was able to spend 5 out of 14 nights at the Funky Hostel. Great walking distance to Old town. Plus close to the Local experience. Clean and Friendly. Great Wifi and free Breakfast! Eve is a great time. Buy her a cider and have a chat in the common room!
