The place is located close to the centre so within easy walking distance.
The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and everything was fine.
We liked it so its a place to be recommended.

Ok, this is not a hotel. But for a hostel it was absolutely amazing! We got a warm welcome, a clean and lovely room and a great location for very nice price. The breakfast was free too but I have to suggest people bring their own food too as they only have the bare minimum. The fridge was shared so I accidentally drank someone's orange juice. I'm sorry. I have already booked another trip to the town and this hostel. I'm loving it way more than the 4 star hotel I would stay the first time!

I had booked a room at the Tia hotel but unfortunately for the wrong date.
I arrived 05:30 in the morning and wandered through town and found central hostel.
I was welcomed by a lovely receptionist who helped me. I was so tired and couldn't care less about what the room would look like. A bed was all I needed.
Booked a doubleroom for myself since the singles were fullybooked.
Lovely room. Clean and spacious.
Clean bathroom just outside the room.
Always have earplugs with me so I didn't get disturbed during the night at all.
Day after I needed directions and information and the receptionist was extremely helpful.
I stayed for one and a helf day and could not have been happier.

Thank you !

A cosy hostel located not far from the central station and the Origo shopping centre. About 10 minutes from the old town and skyline bar. The staff is really helpful and will help you with everything. The rooms are tidy with comfortable beds. This is really the cheapest way to stay in Riga, and it is a LOT value for money.

Well we stayed 2 nights, room is ok but the breakfast is NOT as extraordinary as the other reviews. Very small table in the kitchen for breakfast... and the door at the 2nd floor is super noisy....

A hostel to stay in Riga!

Quiet centrally located, within a walking distance (about 10 miin) from the railway and bus stations. Located in nice building but facing the bussy street.

The staff is really helpfull and nice, the hostel is clean and tidy.
