Brilliant customer service, very friendly staff Value for money
Noisy and cleaniless
Room and showers were okay, helpful staff
A bit far away from city centre in a scruffy area (late night we always came back with taxi), just one bathroom and shower per floor, breakfast was basically do it yourself in the kitchen
Staff are very friendly helpful!
Great breakfast (cereal, toast/spreads, juice, coffee) Lots of relaxation areas Quiet location
A little far from old town (10 min walk) Traffic is sometimes noisy at night
The atmosphere of the hostel and the nicely decorated rooms The private floors
The parking lot. It has a fence that closes automatically - a neighbour told us quite a few accidents have happened. You'd better use the parking lot down the street - it's only a euro a day. The rooms on the top floor don't have air conditioning, a fan or curtains and it got very hot.
The 4 bed dorm is quite big and airy. The hostel is clean and good fitted, there are several sitting/common rooms. The staff is very friendly, helped find a place for my bike, good locked luggage room. Lots of very nice people from all over the globe. Location is good 20min walk to the cathedral and 5 min to the train station.
Breakfast is just cornflakes and jam so don't expect to stuff yourself.
We had the appartment (maisonette) which had a separate entrance and was thereful not loud and extremely spacious. We were 2 adults and a baby. This appartment would be ideal for families up to 2 kids as there are beds for 3 and a sleeping sofa. But there are dangerous steep stairs in the appartment. So nothing for small kids.
Little space for breakfast. Would have been nice to find some "real" cheese and ham for breakfast. But for the price it is ok. It was pretty hot, especially in the breakfast area.
The staff is very friendly. Great value for money. Low price including breakfast. Do not anticipate too much but enough. Coffee and juice served even after breakfast.
very nice environment, felt like home, thanks!
Good value for money, and pretty close to the train station. Friendly staff, and very clean. Nice mix of guests, definitely not a 'party hostel'. Communal kitchen is a bit small, but adequate for simple meals.
Centre is close (15m walk), but the neighbourhood around the hostel is uninspiring. The beds were a bit uncomfortable. Unfortunately the walls were pretty thin, and the street can be noisy at night with drunk people, so this might not be the best place for light sleepers.
The hostel was very clean and cosy. I liked the neat, airy room in which we slept. The kitchen and common rooms with TV feel like home. You can also treat yourself to a breakfast that consists of delicious rye bread, cheese and veggies. The staff was helpful and we could reach all places we wanted on foot. Central Hostel was a very good choice :)
It is really great place. Nice and very helpfull staff. Good breakfast!
Clean, nice breakfast, friendly people.
Location. Chose this hostel instead of one right in Old Town because it said it was close to the Bus Station. But it was further away from the bus station than the hostels that were right in Old town. A bit of a walk with luggage.
In general is a good hostel, but mainly for old people, a quiet area and not too much to do Breakfast is ok, location is just fine
7 euros for washing and drying clothes is too much for a hostel in latvia !
Possibly the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at! Very nice cosy rooms, well-equipped kitchen, wi-fi works well. Unlimited amounts of tea (and a big choice of it too!) included in the price. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Though not located in the old town itself, it is actually closer to the train (5 min by foot) and bus stations (7 min by foot), as well as the bus stop at which the bus from the aeroport stops than most hostels in the old town.
Nothing to put here :)
+ Nice friendly and helpfull staff + Location is good + clean + a lot of informationen material available
- could be a lillte more quiet. Sometimes people smash their doors instead of closing them. That can be heard in Nana rooms easily
Near the railway and bus stations and not far from the centre (actually, you can walk along the street and further in the direction opposite to that most tourists go and find nice art nouveau buildings there, too); friendly and helpful English-speaking stuff; surprisingly good breakfast for the price (though no sausage or ham, but several kinds of cheese, vegetables, fruit, juices, boiled eggs, milk, several kinds of tea...); you can leave your luggage; wi-fi and a computer near the reception you can use; fridge and a kettle with tea any time of the day in the kitchen. They accept credit cards... And the price was great! Говорят по-русски.
No individual lamps so you can't read in bed.
Location, price, free coffee and juice.
Too loudly outside...you hear all cars passing by.
Everything was good- location, our room. Fact that coffee and tea were available, were big bonus! Also breakfast was nice, nothing big, but all you need in hostel (not a hotel breakfast).
Staff is nice and willing to help. Breakfast was rich. Big and nice common area. Room is nice, big enough. Hostel is clean. Towels.
Breakfast and free parking included.
Beds were a bit uncomfortable.
Private parking, a little breakfast in the morning.
