Elizabeth's Youth Hostel is located in the vibrant center of Riga, nearest to the Main Train Station and the International Bus Stations.
Score from 225 reviews Very good
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.
Location was great
No towels or clean sheets. Room was extremely hot while staying during the summer heat. No toilet or shower on the same floor.
dirty toilets/ shower poor breakfast room consists of bed and nothing else loud, continuous street noise
Good location-center of city.
All night traffic voices, ...etc.
Historic center, bus station, rail station are near! Wifi is free, but belong MacDonalds and very slowly
1.Reseption girl is not reported about breakfast and if you not ask it, you will be hungry) 2.Very warm and stuffy in the room 3.fridge is broken
central location (easy to get to other places)
horrible location, right across the main station and on a huge intersection no blinds or curtains whatsoever, meaning full spotlight in your face all night long industry style neon lights in the room what they call breakfast is a joke one (filthy) shower for everybody toilet seats loose, broken, or fallen off; no toilet brushes (it shows, trust me)
Bathroom facilities and shower facilities. No proper Wifi. No help for tourists. Primarily a Russian speaking hostel.
The bed was comfortable and it looked clean.
The staff was very impolite. The bathroom was terrible and I used to go at McDonalds in the first floor. For the same amount of money I have booked a much better room in cities like Madrid. Not worth at all.
showers should be more cleaner
Close to railway and bus stations
Street noise all time. No WiFi Not in old town
The location is close to the railway station and bus station.
Extremely poor facilities. First, there is NOT any furniture in the double/twins room except 2 single beds! The room door inside handle was even NOT fixed. It is very easy to fall down. It is IMpossible to open the door without a handle. That could be very dangerous. The room was equipped with air-conditioner, but the remote control was NOT available at all! The window face to the street! It is very difficult to fall into sleep if open the window. If close the window, the room gets hot pretty soon without air-conditioner! The WC was terrible. There was NOT any piece of paper available! The sit pad was on the floor, but not on the toilet! The hostel located at the 3rd and 4th floors, but only the 3rd floor has bath room, there is not bath room in the 4th floor! There is only one room keys for the twins room. It is very INconvenience when 2 people use the room together. The hostel itself does NOT have internet/ wifi at all! It uses McDonalds' internet! But the hostel is telling guests that is their internet! The hostel is using the McDonalds' internet for business purpose!!! It seems the stuff did NOT welcome guests at all. She did not say any polite or friendly words even we said "hello, thanks, good morning, or paldies (thank you in Latvian)......"
Wifi Mc donalds Location
Proprety The unkindness of certain members of staff
Everything! Dirty dirty
Rude staff who never bothered to explain any do's and dont's. Instead of double bed we were put in room with two single beds, with no explanation why. Room was not ready for the check-in. Never got the breakfast that was included in room rate. One shower between two floors of rooms. Toilets did not have lock. The only wi-fi was from Mcdonald's which of course wasn't working on the 4th floor.
- No shelves/closets etc. - The door had glass windows, which let through all the light from the hallway. - Two single beds, even though we booked one double. - One single shower for 20-25 rooms. - McDonalds smell coming up from the bottom floor (hostel is located above McD.) - No Wifi in the room. Just in the kitchen which is basically stolen McDonalds Wifi. - No kitchen facilities besides a coffee vending machine (no stove, fridge etc).
The location was the only good thing.
The breakfast is not worth calling a breakfast. I didn't even bother going to get our breakfast after the second day. It was very hot in our room and our window couldn't open, the staff didn't even bother trying to help us. That is the main reason why i will never go there again.
The location is very good. Easy to find a close to the links to the airport and the canal tours they offer. Also it is good that McDonalds is so close - it is a savior for food and internet for this hostel.
It was a very noisy place, couldn't sleep even though I got the room for just sleeping one night in between two planes.
The location is good as it is near the bus and railway stations. It is on a public transport route and opposite a shopping centre. There is a McDonald's on the ground floor.
This is probably the most basic place I have ever stayed in. I paid extra to have a shower in the room as the communal showers were far too communal. There were two toilets with the seats unattached. In the private room there was a one foot wide strip of thin material and similar of net curtaining attached to the window on string. There was no way to protect your modesty from the hostel windows opposite. The room had a bed and shower. Nothing else. It was extremely noisy all the time but I don't know where the noise came from. There was a very basic kitchen which I didn't use. The hall was dark and I couldn't find a light switch. I didn't bother with the breakfast as I preferred to get out as quickly as possible.
The hostel used to be a sunbathing studio and looked like it had a very quick change-over.
Excellent location. The interrior of the hostel was in excellent condition comparing with other places I have stayed at previously. Excellent price.
Walls are pretty thin. Could hear everything from the next room. There was no shower on the same floor. Had to go to the next floor down.
The location is close to the city center.
When we checked in, we were not provided with towels until the afternoon of the next day. We were not able to sleep because of much light as there is literally NO CURTAIN on the window. The staff is helpless, incompetent and UNFRIENDLY. Our complaints were not heard! For the next night we demanded to be moved to another "room with a curtain" but instead received a room that has a toxic stink (even when the window is open!). Since one person is asthmatic, again our complaints were not heard! The staff refused to change the room and pretended as if the room was not problematic. Above all there is NO SHOWER on the same floor, NO LIGHT in the toilet, NO SOAP, NO KITCHEN EQUIPMENT, NO FRIDGE and the place is dirty. We had no choice but to leave for a better place.
1.расположение.В самом центре и внизу есть макдоналдс и маккафэ. 2.Белье чистое,хоть и нужно его ждать несколькл часов после заселения и полотенца нужно просить отдельно. The only advantage of this hostel was it's location,in the city center.
1.Персонал.Очень недоброжелателен,не заинтересован в создании комфорта для посетителей.Девушка на ресепшене в состоянии полнейшей прострации.Менеджер заставил нас и еще нескольких туристов ждать заселения,он должен был принести списки с номерами,опоздал по причине того что пил кофе в маккафе. 2.Завтрак это НЕЧТО.Йогурт,который хранится без холодильника,там один крахмал + вафли непонятного происхождения. 3.Нет собственного Wifi,приходилось пользоваться wifi от макдоналдса. 4.Номера находятся на 2 разных этажах,а душ (1 кабинка на весь хостел) только на одном этаже.Если вы живете на 4,то вам придется по общей лестнице(где ходят все даже те кто не живет в хостеле) спускаться в душ на 3 этаж. 5.
location of the hostel
too dirty; not paper in the toilets; to take shower you have to take elevator; no service; bed broken; uncomfortable
Room was untidy when we arrived, a ball of hair was near to the bed. The double bed had only 2 single blankets, so we had to do a patchwork to sleep. Everything was dirty. Cheap breakfast (1 yogurt + 1 cookie), very bad. Wifi was from McDonalds from the first floor.
