  • Great place for seeing the city. Located right across from the bus station right in old Riga, it is in a prime location for exploring old town and the many bars and clubs in the area. Can get noisy at night due to the first and second floor bar; no common room or kitchen facilities. The bottom floor pub gets crowded most nights, and has cheap beer and is a great place to meet people. Comfortable beds and large under-bed lockers.

  • We had an awesome stay at the Riga Old Town Hostel! Very well situated in the Old Town, extremely dedicated staff, very clean and a nice friendly atmosphere. It was really convenient to go out, get drunk, and know we were 5 min away from the hostel and could easily come back! Rooms are big and we had space for our bags. Staff took time to point out to us all the good places to go out. Would definitely come back and recommend it!!
