  • A nice hostel, very well located-close to both bus &train station. But the instructions are misleading. It's not after McDonald's-It's above McDonald's, the door from the street side are between Mc Donald's and Mc Cafe.

  • The blond latvian girl (with cow's piercing in nose )at reception wasnt welcoming and rude. Didnt even smile when opened door for me. Refused to speak russian asking to speak english in my own country?!! Even when she realised own mistake she didnt apologise.As the hostel is located right in city centre and they want to attract customers they have to make sure they provide exellent welcoming customer service which in latvia is very big problem due to rudeness and lack of smile on people's faces.
