Good value for money hostel, free wifi is great, location about 10mins walk from main riga. Friendly people everywhere and kitchen facilities handy. Will definitely return! Thank you
great value for its price. we had a room for 2 with nice design, quite big. 15 minutes from railway station. You also get breakfast - tea, coffee, juice, sandwiches with butter and jam, musli
if you are a light sleeper a street nearby might be loud. it may take some time to get to the old time - but it's absolutely ok if you like long walks or plan to take transport
It was clean, and not too far from Old Town (15-20 minute walk). The room itself (while tiny) was quite clean and comfortable, and one of the receptionists (the male one) was nice.
Average age of guests (I suspect they actually live there as they mostly seemed to be Latvian) is around 65, there's only one shower per 4 to 5 rooms (always occupied), the electricity upstairs kept going off, and when I told the receptionist, her response was an annoyed "I know", accompanied by a gratuitous sigh as she stomped downstairs to fix it, so it's clearly a recurring issue. The kitchen is tiny - there's no room to cook or eat, as there are only 4 seats at a tiny table and no bench space. The "common room" was a tiny room with one old lady sitting there knitting. Don't go if you're looking to have fun or meet other travellers, because you won't.
Interior of the rooms, facilities, cleaniness
Men and women are placed in the same rooms, that is quite unpleasant.
breakfast is really nice!!!
Free and decent breakfast - bread, corn flakes, yogurt, fruits and juices. The interior was cozy and colorful. The location was okay because the old town was within walking distance and there was also a mall nearby. The common spaces were really comfortable with a variety of sofas and a hammock. If you want to visit the kitchen during the night you won't wake up anyone. Overall a pleasant staying experience.
The edgy railway station nearby might dissatisfy someone. The walls were pretty thin and the road outside has traffic through the night (sleep with closed windows! :D) so it can be difficult to have a peaceful sleep. Also the foam mattress is not for everyone. Despite that, we slept okay during our stay.
location, price, atmosphere in hostel
Nice facilities and staff
Very nice and cosy place in the good location.
-It was near the center, 10 min walk -Clean, and comfy -Helpful staff -Good wifi -Kitchen available -Acceptable price.
-Doors are thin, noises might be audible from corridor -Furniture in the room is somewhat simplistic: a bed, an armchair, and a nightstand. -No table, no locker, no TV set in room.
The breakfast was quite good, in a DIY basis. The bed was comfy! Seemed like home. The staff was really nice, and very helpful.
A bit far from the center. Not so "central". We were a couple, and they put us in different room. That was really unpreciated, but as it was only for one night...
Very helpful and friendly staff,location not very far from the center,nice and cozy room(double room), the breakfast included was very good,everything for every ones taste,in the kitchen was all needed for making our own food, a cozy room for hanging out near the reception.
