Location is the only good thing about this hostel
Everythings looked old and worn out. The room smelled and opened window did not help.
- close to railway station - kitchen available (however, no sugar or teabags)
- the room strongly smells a stale cigarette smoke - walls are far from being sound-proof - cold! - no desk, no chairs in the room - the only table in the common kitchen is 0.5 sq.m. - breakfast consists of a synthetic wafer and similar yogurt
price deducted before arrival, no heating in the room in November (and no extra blanket, only a thin one), no furniture except for the bed, noisy guests
WAS NEAR TO CENTRE
Single room in centre of Riga for unbeatable 12€. Working Wi-Fi, free tea, friendly staff. I didn't expect luxury, but after reading some comments, I was little affraid. I had no problem with Wi-Fi, WC or shower like some others.
Little bit cold - end of October.
- Heating is not working, rooms are very very cold - Awful smell everywhere (NOT from McDonalds downstairs) - Security guard sitting, but we saw new holes smashed in walls of the corridor - not secure location, strange people walking to Internet cafe in the same building open 24/7 - Room walls (not pictured on Booking.com) are decorated 'striptease' theme - feeling that you stay in room for adult business - Personnel does not speak English - Left luggage is not secured - I took mine without a notice by anyone. - The only furniture in the room is a bed. - No fire extinguisher present - Breakfast is a jogurt + waffle, that's it (coffe is paid) - Walls are made of gypsum boards - you can hear everything in neighbour room - If you have read this review, then be happy you did not choose this place to stay - it will make your holiday memories really bad despite all cool things to do in Riga.
Really good place. It's placed right in the center, near the rail and bus station and central market. Wort if you're planning to visit the Old city.
Noisy neighbors, but depends on you if you'll like it :) BTW, it could be better organized for this price. At least a table and some chairs in the room. It would be a great addition :)
Everything was ok
Couple of times was too noisy neighbors.
Dirty floor, my feet were sticking, so it was spoiled cola or something. Grey linen, two separate beds instead of one big I ordered
Rooms. No chair,no table. Nothing.
Walls like paper and not enough and dirty toilets and shower. Nothing to put your clothes in the room and no real blankets. Mc Donalds smell everywhere. Fire alarm in the night! We left earlier.
Only the location.
Dirty, cold, noise, dangerous hosts.
The room is OK and bed comfortable
The no-smoking rule was not properly enforced, I have peeps using the toilet to smoke and drink in the middle of the night and since I am allergic to smoke,I found things pretty difficult, the toilets need better management. There was no breakfast served and on request, you wiklk be given a bar of buscuit. There is no cooking facilities hence you have to depend on eating out
good localization, good price and ok standard. We didn't have to pay extra even if our check out was over one hour late due to that we were insecure if we wants one more night and if they had space. We ended up 2 nights next door in a nice hostel.
Just a micro wave in the kitchen and kitchen barely equipped. Like there were no spoons and no forks/ knives. Maybe one teaspoon. Maybe one plate for all people there. We do not use a microwave, so it wa snot useful to us. We only use a stove and we do not carry forks and spoons usually. They would be benefitted by having a better equipped kitchen since they are advertising that they have kitchen.
Location of this hostel is the only advantage, but Riga isn't very large city, so it's more neutral advantage.
I would never recommend this hostel to anyone, it's the worst place where i have ever been. The room and shower were dirty. Despite that we asked for a single beds, we received a room with double bed. There was nothing more in it, only one bed, wall with a whole and very dirty carpet, so we was all the time with shoes in the room. Where was only two toilets for all floor and one dirty. Staff was unfriendly and didn't speak english.
I have problem to find any advantage of that hostel. It's very close to main railway station, if someone needs that. There is a stop for public transportation on the other side of a street. And bus stop for airport is behind railway station, so you can reach that in about 5-7 minutes of walk. And I think that's all.
This hostel is very uncomfortable and noisy: building is located alongside a street with a stream of heavy traffic, moreover walls between rooms are very thin, so everything what's going on next door is very well heard, some of people are coming back to hostel really late and all you can hear it's the main door which tears you from sleep. Rooms are extremely poorly equipped - bed and that's all. Nothing else at all. There is no even litter bin! Probably that's why in my room there where a lot of trash in... damaged heat dispenser. Bathroom and toilet weren't very tidy, frequently lack of toilet paper. There is only one shower for entire floor, so you'll be waiting for it quite long or have to get up really early. Some of the staff doesn't speaks english (even basic sentences!), so it's not so easy to communicate. They are fluent in russian, so if you know that language, that will be easier. One of the most irritating things is that they don't respond to e-mails! I've send them 3 before coming there and had no response! If they haven't had my card number, I would booked another hostel, but they didn't answered to my questions, so I've came there - and it was a mistake. And the worst: there is NO INTERNET in that hostel! When I've asked about that, some of the staff told me that... there is a McDonald on the ground floor, so maybe I can catch their wi-fi, because there is no password for that! That restaurant in the building, which is menntioned in description on booking.com - it's McDonald. It's opened until very late hour and all the building smells like grease from french fries - really unpleasant. On the booking.com was an information about breakfast included - it's yoghurt with a biscuit. I strongly advise to search another hostel.
location in the city center near railway and bus station
I woke up bitten by insect (I think that they were bedbugs!), too little room, broken light, breakfast (included in the price) was only yogurt and biscuit
Low price; Great location
No internet connection; The absence of other than bed furniture in the room
Centrally located and very cheap.
The staff seemed very grumpy - receptionist could not be bothered to be helpful in any way and cleaning lady was very shirty even when I said I was happy to put the bedding on. Also huge queue for bathroom - 1 between 2 floors.
for this price, it is okay to spend one night in this place...we had privacy and the bed was quite clean, an additional shower is under construction.
the bathrooms weren't clean, in the room there was nothing to find but a bed and one chair, the smell of fries from the Mcdonalds wasn't that appetizing :D anyway a cheap place to stay.
The hostel is in the city center, not far from the bus and train station.
The room was very small and dirty.
Price and location
Breakfast was yogurt and waffles. He could give yogurt instead of coffee. Did not say that there is a kitchen.
Location, rooms and kitchen were all great. Situated above McDonalds.
Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing.
Excelent location - closeness of Old Town, bus and train stations and supermarket. The 2nd floor's shower's building is in progress, so it should be available for guests since September of 2014. Clean rooms, toilets and bathroom. The hostel is easy to find.
Poor and every-day-the-dame breakfast - just a little wafer and a little yogurt. Only one shower cabin for all the guests (rooms are located on two floors). The kitchen and dining room is very small - only one table with three seats and a coach - it's not enough for such a big hostel. Noises from the street make impossible sleeping with open window. Poor kitchen's equipment: lack of tesspoons and solid knifes. Need of asking for getting tovels.
