Rooms and showers are clean, nice free breakfast, good location, staffs very friendly and informative.
good location, friendly stuff, good breakfast
u can't open the window (during the night) because it is at noisy street kitchen a bit small for the hostel
Very good breakfast Nice staffs Nice decoration
The entrance was through Mac Donald and they haven't said!so I got lost in the first night
Location Excellent location, just opposite Riga train station and shopping mall/grocery store, within short walking distance of tourist places, free good breakfast, good behaviour of all lady staff and very cheap rate of the double room we had been in. On our "second coming" to Riga, we hope to be at Riga Hostel again.
Nothing so prominent, save the little fact that some gentleman (perhaps a guest) was showing discomfiture/uneasiness to the "exotic flavour" of the Indian food my wife was cooking and the lady staff brought a candle which was placed beside the place of cooking to mitigate the "exotic flavour".
Hostel located in the centre and decoration was just awesome. Helpful and good service. Room small but very nice. Good place for meeting other travellers too.
No AC in the hostel so room is very hot during summer season and street is noicy during the night.
Great location, fine place.
Really noisy sound of air condition and smell (oil) from MCDonald's which is in the same building.
I am very happy about quality price ...you have also McDonald's downstairs in case someone is a lovers. I remember Annette in reception she was very attentive and helpful
The shower area could have a bit more space or something more comfortable where place your clothes
good to find hostel with breakfast, friendly staff!, elevator! very clean
outside it is a bit loud, it is hot
I can cook conveniently
The smell of the carpet
Good atmosphere, good service.
WiFi was not working in my room. Not a big issue, easy to resolve...
Staff were nice, breakfast was great. Wifi. Location was perfect.
Too hot, but it is summer so not much can do about that anyway!
Friendly and helpful staff, free breakfast, 1 minute walk from train station, everything is in order.
Wonderful place, very kind staff, good breakfast, clean room.
Air conditioners noises from outside.
friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, cosy rooms, perfect location, free popcorn and movies... it seems to be a perfect hostel))
Central location just by the train and bus stations. There is Macdonalds downstairs open 24 hours. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and the reception is open 24 hours, so late check in is possible. Staff also let us leave our bags after the check-out. Breakfast included!
The location by the stations and the Macdonalds means that there might be certain characters lurking by the entrance, which might not feel 100% safe to walk around, but the actual hostel has its entry locked to ensure that only guests get in. The place itself might get quite crowded, and the toilets are few, with no washing facilities in the actual room, but that's bearable for a short stay.
Friendly staff good common room and great breakfast
A bit noisy at night from surrounding buildings
Situation was so fine:Bus and train station 300m, Hesburger+Subway 100m, supermarket (open 7-23)100m. Personel was nice. Toilets and showers were clean and there were many of them.
Sleeping without wars was hard because of streetnoise.
rich breakfast, close to the Old town + to the train/bus station, cozy atmosphere...
perrrfect receptionist- girl! Very sweet and comfy all.
pls, soap for shower room
In my opinion, It's the best hostel in Riga. Very friendship personal, literature about city places on reception. There are many bathrooms and toilets, that's why no line in evening and morning. Continental breakfast is ok for hostel, good kitchen with all you need.
If you seat up on the bed, you have really danger to hitting head. Not so much sockets in a room.
