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:
Exit the arrivals terminal and head across the car park to the buss stop. There is a timetable for bus 22 where you will find that the bus will be arriving shortly unless it is between 1 – 5 am. Take the bus (bus fare is 2,00 EUR regardless if you have luggage or not) to the stop called Autoosta- it is the 2nd stop after you have crossed Daugava river. Walk UP the street (in direction of the traffic) for about 50 m – you will reach a tunnel. Walk through it straight till you see an exit to your right, don’t take that exit. Turn left and exit to the far right corner, right past a tiny lady’s’ underwear shop. You should end up on Marijas street. Walk straight up till McDonalds and turn left. Right around the corner you should see the entrance right between McDonalds and McCafe! Take elevator to the 4th floor. Welcome

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!
