Score from 610 reviews Wonderful
Good location + detailed instruction how to get there Enough toilets and showers Good kitchen corner
Uncomfortable bed Super small sinks (you really have to be accurate spitting toothpaste) Bad noice insulation (however there were earplugs in my room!)
Nice comfortable room, good location and friendly staff.
Breakfast was very good.
WiFi kept breaking up, the shower water didn't drain away. Some of the staff were really friendly some were a bit more abrupt and not as friendly. Room for 6 was way too cramped and nowhere to put your bags, I was tripping over bags everywhere.
Location - it was practically in the old town. Also, the place was clean (sheets, towels and common areas). Breakfast was nice, and they also offer a free tea, cooffee and juice 24/7.
The hostel is above the McDonalds, so while entering you have to go through it and it really stinks. In the elevator it also smells like homeless or smth.. although it the hostel it doesnt. Our room (private double) was in the very corner of the hostel, almost in front of the reception, so everytime we had to go to wc or shower, we had to pass through the reception and lounge area where other guests were watching tv ... Also, the breakfast was in the same place where the reception is (i. e. basically in the kitchen, as the reception and kithen is connected together) and it was a bit crowdy, as the table wasn't so big. The room - it was dark (darkly painted walls), and floors were making the sound while walking. So it didn't leave an impression of cozyness. However, the dorm rooms (as I saw it ) looked much more better and lighter.
Helpful staff - they can even prepare pleasant surprise in the room for your significant other before arrival; Very good breakfast cozy atmosphere good showers close to the center, shopping mall
No closet in the bedroom No private shower/toilet in the double room
Value for Money in the center Of town
Small kitchen, narrow beds,
Location is pefect - across the street from train and bus stations and the old town. Staff is friendly and welcoming, everything is neat and clean, comfortable bathrooms.
The walls are quite thin so you can hear all the talking around. However everything calms down in the night so it is not a problem for a sleepover between exploring the city.
Position close to train station and bus station less than 5 min walk. Nice staff. We rented a private double room with breakfast included. Good value for money.
Sink of bathroom was too small. Carpet in the room was not the cleanest. Main entrance of the hostel is shared with Mc Donalds.
The free breakfast was very good, lots of things to choose from, very clean hostel and very smiley, friendly staff. Central location, old town, shops bus and railway station was all in walking distance
Wifi cut off often and was slow, kitchen a bit narrow, not every room had lockers
Great location, cheap and nice. I never thought it really includes the breakfast! The staff was helpful too!
Maybe toilet, being full of paper sometimes. But it wasn't bad, really.
The position is really good. It's only 6 mins to bus station, which is extremely helpful while chasing the bus in the morning:P Their breakfast is a feast! Staff is professional and kind.
- Prime location - Nice facilities (showers, kitchen, toilets) - Very clean - Very helpful personnel - Free breakfast
- the WiFi did not work in the farthest room but they said they were fixing it
It's really a great hostel and high value for such a low price of accommodation. Very rich breakfast and the sofa in the hostel made me think of my home. Staffs were friendly and they even prepared breakfast earlier because I had to leave before the breakfast time starts.
- within walking distance of the old town. Very close to the bus and train station. - staff are kind
- kitchen is very small and not suitable to prepare your meals. Food in Riga is really affordable though, so you can just eat out at LIDO ;)
Price, location (really close to train station and 5 min walk to Old Town), nice stuff, nice breakfest (different kinds of bread, eggs, fruits, cereals...). Hostel is clean and it wasn't noisy.
Location is in 5 minutes from the center, near main train station and a bus stop to the airport. Hostel provides breakfast, city maps and allows to store your things if you want to walk after check out.
It could be a queue of guests to the toilet in the morning.
Welcoming staff, pleasure atmosphere in hostel, very clean and comfortable rooms — reasons for come back many times. Breakfast is awesome. I booked a single room and i have only good memories about it.
Nothing. All is perfect.
It was very comfortable place with good location near train and bus stations, city center and lots of shops and cafes, above Macdonalds.Stuff are very nice and helpful. The room was stylish and comfortable.
There was only one blanket. Sink was very small.
Facilities were good
There was noisy until the mid night and early morning.
The best place if you need something not far from the station and in the city center at the same time. I liked the design a lot. Each room has its own atmosphere. Rich breakfast is included.
good heating decent breakfast very clean
internet weak/cuts out no internet in rooms small common area
the staff , Location , People ... perfect hostel
The location of the hostel is perfect, only few minutes to the old town. The Mcdonalds is in downstairs and there is a Big Mall across the street.
Normally i prefer staying in hotel rather than hostels. But this hostel was as good as a hotel. The hostel has a kitchen where guests can make tea and coffee for free and can make their own food in the kitchen. Breakfast is served every morning. The hostel itself is very homely and comfortable. We stayed in a private room. There are plenty of bathrooms and showers and I didn't have to wait once, despite the hostel being full. Its non smoking but there is a balcony where u can sit. There are two computers, TV, games and books for guests. The location is very good. A minute walk to train station and shopping centre. A 5 minute walk to a park. 15 minute walk to the old town. And a McDonalds 20 seconds away! :) the price is amazing for what you get. The receptionists (particularly the young dark haired gil_sorry I don't remember the name) were extremely nice. She particularly was very welcoming and we immediately felt at home with her! Our flight was not until 10.30 at night but the staff still let us leave our luggage and hang around the hostel until we had to leave. If I return to Riga I will be coming back to stay here!
The smell in the lift area was not appealing at all. We were worried the hostel was the same but thankfully it wassnt. Just hold your breath on the way up!
Hostel is right in the middle of the city, everything right in the corner. Clean and cheap!
Breakfast was a little bit poor. They are offering just bread and cheese and if you are not fast enough you wont get anything.
