Happy Hotel is located in Rīga. Free WiFi access is available, as well as parking. Riga's Old Town is about 4 km away and the main train station is 5 km from the hotel.
Score from 124 reviews Very good
Very close to old town (10 min walk). Rooms and bathrooms are clean and cosy. Staff is helpful and speaks major languages.
Located IN the market, so may be a little bit noisy in the morning, but within acceptable level. Parking is free only on weekends (5 min walk from hostel).
The position near the city center, coach station and railway station. The level of quality is good for the price and the couple room was clean.
It's situated into the food market area and in the night it is not dangerous, but there aren't people on the street.
well organized program for the guest. kindness and prifessional preparation
Close to all public transport, near the train station and the old town, very nice young ladies helping with all the questions. Market was no problem, no noise in my room, enjoyed lots of fresh fruit.
There are many homeless being around the hostel,it s in the big local market. Feeling not comfortable when we walk around.
Location right by the market and close to old town and station. Friendly staff. Somewhere to leave bikes
Excellent value for money. Friendly staff.
Difficult to find at night.
I came bu bus late in the evening, and it was very close to the bus station
Quiet, clean, definitely worth the price.
I really like everything here. Spacious and nicely decorated room with clean bathroom, nice stuffs. Cleanness of the room was beyond my expectation. Location of this hostel is fairly central even though it seems difficult to reach when I first arrived here.
As I arrived here midnight, it seems unsafe. Young people did skateboarding or hanging around, so you should be careful in the night. Also, the way to this hostel is not simple if you come from the train station or stockmann (I mean Gogola iela). If you arrive at the Bus terminal or Airport, you should use Pragas iela rather than Gogola iela. Also, there were some noise coming from the outside, because it is so close to the market. But despite these drawbacks, this hostel offers tidy, clean, central, and comfortable accommodation in a cheap price.
This is my best hostel experience ever. Everything is clean and kithen (with huge freedge) is big with lot of space for sittting place. Very helpful staff, who also help me to a doctor.
Taxi driver doesnt find it:) It was Riga taxi..
All in all clean, comfortable, quiet place. Close to the train and bus station. It is in the middle of a big market. Lots of fruits and other food stuff. Some guest said that it is noisy because of the market. I didn't find it noisy at all.
Hostel is in the middle of a big market. In the evening, especially during the night it is deserted. For some people (especially for girls) it might be scary to walk through the market. Single beds are too narrow. There is a kitchen but there is nothing there except a microwave.
Location. Shower. :)
Wi-Fi didn't work in my room on 3-rd floor.
all is the best!
Good wifi, close to the city center
Location near coach and rail stations, nice, clean and big en-suite room, kind staff, free wi-fi, kitchen downstairs, really good price!
Location is good, near to central bus station, just 5 minutes to walk. Price is fine.
Very close to the train station (from the entrance of the market side –bus stop of “airport” bus number 22) and next to the bus station. Old Town about 8 minutes walks distance. Location in a nicely renovated ex-harbour building on the great and interesting Central Market (on your doorstep, fresh fruit, bread ... all you want). Large single room with shower (hairdryer included). The heat in the room, hot water (I was in January). In the mornings I got up late and I came back lately so I did not feel any noise. In contrast, I have no idea how it will in the summer with opened window (market). I did not feel any threat described by others although I understand that in fact the girls in the evening can feel uncomfortable in the middle of an empty market. Important: great and friendly staff!!! Bardzo blisko dworca kolejowego (spod wejścia od strony targu przystanek autobusu nr 22 na lotnisko) i tuż obok autobusowego. Stare Miasto ok. 8 minut piechotą. Lokalizacja w ładnie odnowionym budynku poportowym na wielkim i ciekawym targu (na wyciągnięcie ręki świeże owoce, pieczywo... wszystko co chcemy). Pokój jednoosobowy duży, z prysznicem (jest też suszarka). Ciepło w pokoju, ciepła woda (byłem w styczniu). Rano wstawałem, późno przychodziłem stąd nie odczułem żadnego hałasu. Natomiast nie mam pojęcia jak będzie w lato przy uchylonym oknie (targ). Nie odczułem żadnego opisywanego przez innych zagrożenia choć rozumiem, że faktycznie dziewczyny wieczorem mogą się czuć nieswojo pośród pustego targu. Ważne: przesympatyczna i życzliwa obsługa.
The location is very comfortable, close to the old town and the central market (one of the city's landmarks). All facilities are new and neat. The kitchen area is nice, well-equipped, clean and spacy. Smoking is not allowed at the hostel territory, but there's a special smoking room.
The hostel doesn't have its own parking, even a paid one. We left the car at Maskavas street for 6 Euros per 24 hours. The receptionists don't seem very friendly. The price of a double bedroom is a bit too high for a hostel.
Located centrally, close to the old town and grocery stores. 24h reception, city maps available.
No free parking. No elevator, many thresholds on the way to the room (an obstacle to carry heavy bag).
Hostel is situated near market rather close to the old city centre. Hostess is at the reception 24 hours and are friendly. The room is large, warm (we have been in Jan 2014), bathroom is all new. At the 1st floor there is a big room for watching tv, drinking tea or coffee. Here also is a kitchen and place to iron clothes.
In the room no tv however the socket for tv is done. There are no bedside tables. We were in this hostel for three days and no cleaning was done neither in the room nor in the hall.
Fantastic market around the corner
Wi Fi not so good
Price, all kinds of transport.
Nothing for this price
