Doma Hostel
Ranked #21 of 150 Specialty Lodging in Riga
Reviewed May 21, 2007

I stayed at the Doma Hostel in April 2007 and had a reasonably enjoyable stay. The hostel is about 10-15 mins walk from the bus/train stations and apart from all the cobbled streets i had no trouble getting there. The woman at reception wasn't very good however, and managed to photocopy the wrong side of my passport which several days later led to me being asked to pay them a refund for not using the room they had reserved me when i had. The rooms were a good size, even if the beds were a bit shabby and the showers/toilets were kept clean. There was also a common room which had satellite TV and internet access and was a good place for meeting people. The hostel was located right in the heart of Riga and was a great location to go exploring.

I can handle a 'less-than' fantastic hostel, but when a property showcases themselves as 'newly renovated in january 2006' and clearly is not - i can not abide false advertising or blatant lying! The Dome Hostel was not renovated recently. It's old, uncomfortable and smelly. The carpets are grubby, the rooms are dark and smell of old body odour trying to be masked by cheap air freshner. It's cheap - so if that is your only requisite for accomodation, then stay at the Dome Hostel. The location is very good. But if you want a little privacy, comfort, and clean facility - do not stay here!
Don't even get me started on the toilet!

The hostel has an excellent location right in the centre of the old town. Although this means it can get a little loud occasionally with people coming out of pubs in the evening, the location is unbeatable for all of Riga's top sights as well as all the restaurants and bars.

Facilities were basic but clean and beds were comfy. It's a small hostel and quite cosy (read: small!) but the staff are excellent, very friendly and really helpful, especially the manager. Would definitely recommend, especially for smaller groups/couples.

Doma hostel was by far the best hostel we have ever stayed at! The staff were friendly, very helpful, interested in our travels and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. It was clean and cheap, plus it was right in the centre of Riga. The staff suggested places for us to eat and things to see and do that were all great too.
