This place is ok, hence the 'ok' rating. The staff is nice enough--not overtly friendly but not completely unapproachable. The one who checked me in continued to tell me about bars and clubs even after I said I don't drink and don't go to those places, which may be because that's just her little spiel but I found it somewhat inconsiderate. The place is pretty clean, though the shower plumbing could use a cleaning out as water backs up while you are in there which is kinda gross to me. And the fridge is jam-packed and a little smelly which can't be all from current hostelguests as there is good turnover of visitors. Security is excellent and necessary. But above all--I can't get a good night's sleep here!!! The hostel is on the 3rd floor at a major intersection where late night partygoers/drinkers/crazy people like to stand and yell and scream whatever in Latvian and Russian. Maybe because there's a MacDonald's downstairs or for the wonderful echo that makes the yelling all the better for those who would prefer to not hear it. Cars are constantly beeping their horns at them (which makes them laugh and scream all the more and louder) and each other, you can hear the beeping for the pedestrian crossing day and night, and I absolutely can't forget to include the motorcycles who like to rev up their engines after turning onto the smaller road to race down it doing wheelies. The location is superb (right near everything you need in Central city and 10-15 minute walk to Old Town and Moscow) and everything else is comfy enough for the reasonable price. If I use earplugs I won't hear my alarm but it's been 2 nights going on 3 and I'm so tired I guess I'll have to ruin my day tomorrow just to be able to get some shuteye.
