  • The hostel was the highlight of our trip. Our 10 people dorm had but nice people that we were spending time with. Life of the guests was made easy, even the beds were made already, and towels were included. The morning beer was tasty and appreciated. Staff had an excellent grip of how to receive guests and we got several recommendations what to do. The bar had a beertasting of Lithuanian beers discounted for hostel guests. Totally recommendable!

  • The bar downstairs is very loud 'till late at night, but for sure you'll find new friends there. So the hostel is not for people who want to go to sleep early and/or don't like beer :)

  • Hostel very well located in the center and near the bus station (300 meters). It has a bar on the ground floor where it is pleasant to drink one of several beers and cocktails that are on the list. Clean. The only fault is to have no kitchen, but has two shopping centers nearby where you can get food and eat in a common area that exists on the top floor of the hostel. Good for those who want to go with friends, go to the center and other bars, and for those who want know the main tourist sites

  • There is a pub in the hostel. So, it's rather for younger people because it's quite till 2 o'clock am;) As I came I receive a free welcome beer:) and in the morning I had a breakfast beer (or coffee:)) The staff was young and helpful. Close to bus and railway station and to the Old Town

  • 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.
