I stayed here on the 1st November. The Hostel was hard to find at first and I had to ask 3 people for directions, but once found, it was so easy to remember and was very secure. On arrival unfortunately there was no one at reception desk and a sign to say someone would return shortly. I left my mobile... More

We stay in the private twin room. But we found our passports, phone, camera and few more small items were been stolen. We locked the door before we sleep, but it was open in the morning. And we found our bag in the staircases. The staff only help us to call police then keep saying I don't know. And the... More

The hostel is located in central Riga and is in a great apot to access the city and bars/cafés. The rooms were ok but the hostel in general was small and at times staff were not available. More kitchen space would have been better as it was too crowded with three or more people.

This hostel is close to the bus station, which is definitely a big advantage. But we didn't get a city map (shouldn't it be given in hostels?) and..there is no hot water! A little disappointed but still not a bad choice for a one night stay.

If you're just looking for a place to rest your head in a good location for a reasonable price then you can't go wrong here. Downsides for me where: 4 flights of stairs (not ideal with luggage). Security, door to my room was quite flimsy, no lighting in the dark passage coming back to the hostel at night. Bathrooms very... More

It's located in the Old Town, close to the bus/train station. It's adapted hostel in an old building with lots of stairs. ;) I liked it. And I loved the bathtube. :) The room (6 people) was clean, sunny in the morning but didn't have nice view (maybe the other 6people room had better). There are no lockers in the... More

I stayed in this hostel in May 2013 and it was my first experience of visiting a hostel. It was nice, clean, with rather good and simple breakfast (toasts and jam). We stayed there for 2 days and i can say that it is the best option for a short trip. The place in 2 steps to St. Pietri and... More

If you are going to visit Riga to run across the city all day long and need the place to put your head on the pillow overnight, then you should choose this one. We came here very early in the morning (at 7 a.m.) and were admitted to drop our bags at the reception until our reserved room has been... More

Unfortunately, there is a nightclub underneath the building which plays music very loudly from Wednesday-Saturday meaning you will find it very difficult to sleep on those days (unless you have been partying too!) The hostel has many good points, a great location, very good value for money, free internet that actually works, a good kitchen with plenty of utensils. I... More

“* Take deluxe room. It’s far better in quality then average 3* hotel and costs twice less. * Do not rely on local breakfast. There are plenty choices outside for nominal charge. * Spare time for a talk with different staff girls – they are unique source for all you need in Riga.”
