The hostel is a brief 3 minute walk from the train station, a 4 minute walk from the airport bus stop and a 7 minute walk from the international bus station, seriously..., I timed it myself!

From the Airport:
Take the number 22 bus (0.70LVL ticket may be purchased from the bus driver). After crossing the river, get off the bus on the second stop called �Stockmann�. From the bus stop, walk in the same direction in which You came by bus � away from the river. In about 50 meters You will reach a tunnel, walk through it, keeping to the right. There will be two exits to the right, do not take any of them, but turn left at the second one, walk till the end and take the far right exit. You should end up by a Narvesen kiosk on Marijas street. Now You are only a block away. Keep walking away from the river till You see McDonalds, turn left and take the first door after McDonalds. Then take the elevator to the 4th floor......and voila! Welcome to Riga Hostel.

From the Train Station:
When exiting the train terminal, walk in direction to the city center. Once You get out of the main building, You will find Yourself in a large square with a tall clock tower behind You, and a big street in front of You.You should be able to see McDonalds across the street, that is our building!You can either take a tunnel to Your left, or a junction with many light signals to Your right to get across. Once You get to McDonalds, find a door between the restaurant and McCafe, take the elevator to the 4th floor, and....yes, you've guessed it .....Welcome to Riga Hostel!

From the Bus Station:
On leaving the bus station, start walking away from the river Daugava. In front of the Station building main entrance cross the tram rails and turn left. Walk till You reach a tunnel, skip it and turn right behind the building, keep walking away from the river. When You pass the Stockmann shopping center, You will reach another tunnel, walk through this one, keeping to Your right. There will be two exits to the right, do not take any of them, but turn left at the second one. Walk till the end of tunnel and take the far right exit. You should end up by a Narvesen kiosk on Marijas street. Now You are only a block away. Keep walking away from the river till You see McDonalds, turn left and take the first door after McDonalds. Then take the elevator to the 4th floor and... welcome home!

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
