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.
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.

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
