While Riga itself was a beautiful experience, the Blue Cow Barracks made a stay in the city a pure delight. The hostel is located very much in the center of Riga, in a vibrant neighborhood. It was super tidy, and the staff was extremely helpful. We stayed in the private rooms, and these provided 3 if not 4 star comfort. We really really liked this hostel and wish that there are more such places which we can visit.
