  • My room was nice and clean, though it faced the street, so I had a lot of noise all night, and light in the windows. The location is very close to the train and bus stations, but a little bit of a walk from Old Town. It was not bad, perhaps 10 minutes away from the Freedom Monument. Overall, it was a good deal.

  • Nice hostel which is located right in the center of Riga, but pretty far from Old Town. Not extremly clean, but ok. I wish there are more bathrooms (1 for 4 rooms). It cosy and comfortable, included breakfast is awesome! Exellent choice for this price.

  • Get ready to carry a pocket full of for every door you will pass through. Breakfast slightly less than average. bedrooms roomy and beds comfortable. INVEST in AC !!

  • I stayed only one night but the impression was really warm. Location was pretty good and hostel itself was nice and warm. I liked that they offered some sandwiches and juices as early as 7.30 in the morning so I could eat even before catching my flight.
