Score from 241 reviews Very good
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.
Everything was perfect, maybe just a little too noisy during the night. Breakfast surprisingly good, wide variety of choices. The rooms (one single, one double) were spacious and really nicely furnished.
Value for money close to train station and center.
Little noise at evening from room next door.
Place of hostel Personal Tasty breakfast Help with planning and tips Computers with internet Sofas Showers Cleanlinnes Elavator Smoking area McDonald above hostel
Little noisy locker in room
The hostel location is very convenient - near the railway station and Old City, price (very cheap) includes breakfast. Easy to find.
nice staff, good facilities, good location, decent breakfast (but get out early if you want all the stuff).
When I arrived the first night a group of 5 friends were there, and they were extremely messy, so I had no place for my stuff, but that's not the hostels fault...
Excellent hostel, highly recommended!
The main advantage of hostel is location - just 5 min from the main bus station (coach riga station) and railway station (btw you can have very nice breakfast-lunch there for 5-8 euro) + it's just 10 mins to reach the heart of old town. Nearby there is a huge shopping center and a shop with local beers)) Very cute design and furniture in the hostel. It's obviously everything made with soul! Healthy and full breakfast. Clean rooms, dishes and those shared parts like bathrooms and kitchen. Surely recommended!
Was a little bit dirty in the morning in the bathrooms. It was exactly that time between the nigtht and morning cleanings, so nothing extraordinary for me and my friends though. So, this remark more for your knowing.
Breakfast included, helpful staff, good location
No washing machine,Have to take laundry to another hostel
It was situated in the city center; the staff had a very positive and warm attitude; the price was very low; they offered free luggage storage before and after our stay.
The shared bathrooms might be a turn-off for some; the breakfast was very limited - by the time we had room at the table only eggs and bread were left.
amazing decoration in hostel friendly receptionist
noisy at night
location is close to train station staffs are nice breakfast is awesome toilet is very clean
the top of lower bunk bed is too low, i couldn't sit on the lower bed...
Stinky lift to get to this place!
Great Place. Decent location, was very happy with the staff and facilities. Will return.
Clean bathroom and toilets, also variety breakfast
Really good location, close to the old town, Riga's main train station and the airport. Helpful employees. And the breakfast included the price.
The room for 2 person is so small. Heating in the winter may be some problematic.
amazing location; staff is super hefpful; nice breakfast; very low price
location, price, stuff
Central location near the city centre and the bus and railway stations, friendly staff (pretty girls speaking good English), Sunday breakfast, wifi, enough toilets and showers
Smell and dirt in the lift (shared by another 2 or 3 hostels in the same building), room a bit colder at night, no wardrobe in the room
Breakfast excellent. Good selection of local produce. My room was a good size. I enjoyed the atmosphere here , being able to meet other travellers and chat in a friendly, relaxed environment. Plenty of tourist type literature available and I found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable.
Maybe the lighting in the room could have been a bit brighter.
It is very easy to find a hotel, it is a great dislocation. There is everything you need comfort. Very clean bathroom. There are spaces for individual communication.
Maybe the entrance tot the hostel, it is necessary to pass a McD, but this is not the essence!
Very helpful and cheerful stuff, excellent location, the people from all over the world. Especially thanks to blonde girl for her kindness, help and advices. PS. I hope a sparkling wine was really good ;)
The smells of cooking (from McDonald's) and others on the ground floor
Great staff, very helpful Great location
