Staff seemed reluctant to offer advice about Riga, sights, where to eat. When we checked in the girl on reception told me she knew little about Riga as a place to visit as she wasn't from the area. Fair enough, but if you work in a hostel where people will be asking about the area, at least have a basic knowledge. Other hostels I've stayed in have done all they can to help me become aquainted with an area, offering tips and suggestions. I had hoped for this at Riga Hostel. When we asked for a dinner recommendation we were told by a member of staff that they wouldn't recommend anywhere in Riga. Not exactly helpful. The bathroom bins were full for the duration of my stay. With so many people sharing facilities it would have been nice to see them changed more regularly. Not the place to stay if you're looking for a warm welcome to Riga. But if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep, this will do fine.
Free breakfast, free WiFi, good location, plenty of bathrooms as there was no en suite facilities in the hostel.

Pillowcase was open on the back (by construction of the case), thus not very hygenic ### WiFi was extremely weak in the room, both in signal strength and speed ###
Excellent location directly next to main station and above a major McDonald's (but wasn't really too noisy with closed windows)
April 24, 2015
All staff met during my staff were awesome. Smiling, informative and helpful! Makes one hell of a différence about first impression of a hostel, city, and country! Great stay in Riga Hostel
April 19, 2015
only thing - not having shower or toilet in the room and breakfast started at 8, had to be gone by that time, but other than that perfect place to stay plan to be back there this week
very nice girl at the front desk, very nice stay and good value for the money
April 19, 2015
WiFi is a bit weak in the room.
All is perfect for me especially the location. Clean toilet, bathroom, bed
April 17, 2015
Unfortunately the single room wasn't overly clean - snot spread across the wall, which is quite disgusting :-( The bed (or rather the mattress) was quite worn and uncomfortable; As the room is directly next to the kitchen it was pretty loud, but the hostel provides ear plugs for that
Super friendly and helpful staff; Very convenient location - within walking distance to everything and basically opposite of the central train station; Generally clean facilities and nicely stacked kitchen (juice, coffee, etc.) for guests use

Breakfast could be more varied, there was mostly cheese and bread
Great location near old twon and railway station, very nice staff, clean bathrooms and room.
April 9, 2015
not a lot what to say, maybe free wifi in some rooms was weak
Nice and helpful staff, enough good breakfast
April 7, 2015
Though it is well located, still it is confusing because there's no proper signage outside the building hence you wouldn't know that the hostel is inside this building.
It is well located. Near to the stations and old town. Affordable and free breakfast :D

When I was in a dormitory, the signal of WIFI was very weak
very kind staff and cozy rooms :)
March 28, 2015
Fair but complete facilities also with breakfast. A good deal to budget. Well located.
March 26, 2015
clean rooms, very close to the city centre and awesome breakfast.
March 22, 2015
Poor sound isolation (can hear anyone passing by the corridor or closing door in next room :), but on the other hand I do not know any hostel with a good sound isolation.. :) Tea is cheap quality (next time will bring mine) and it would be nice to have some fruits for breakfast...
The interior of the room (double bed) is really lovely and stylish. The staff is very helpful and nice. Everything is clean and tidy. Good job! Stayed here before and will come back again!

Walls were too thin.

The hot water facility to be improved.
The free wholesome breakfast and the location in the heart of downtown.
March 2, 2015
there were things that disturbed me a bit, but they were not under control of the hostel, rather in the mercy of courtesy of other ppl staying there. However advise to the staff or owners - I would put the linen on the blankets and pillows, as they are in pretty sad shape (which you do not really notice once they are covered).
breakfast was nice
March 2, 2015
The hostel is really cosy and quite nice. Located not far from the Riga Coach Station.
February 25, 2015
Uncomfortable bed Super small sinks (you really have to be accurate spitting toothpaste) Bad noice insulation (however there were earplugs in my room!)
Good location + detailed instruction how to get there Enough toilets and showers Good kitchen corner
February 24, 2015
Nice comfortable room, good location and friendly staff.
February 23, 2015
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.
Breakfast was very good.

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.
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.

No closet in the bedroom No private shower/toilet in the double room
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

Small kitchen, narrow beds,
Value for Money in the center Of town

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.
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.
February 4, 2015
Sink of bathroom was too small. Carpet in the room was not the cleanest. Main entrance of the hostel is shared with Mc Donalds.
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.
