A bit noisy.
Good location, close to central station, 5 min walk to Old town. Friendly stuff, very clean.

Well, the hostel is in the very city center near the train and the bus station. It is very clean inside, has modern furniture and interior. I would say, it is rather a good big apartment rather than an ordinary dorm. The staff is friendly and can give useful advice if you need. But above all, the cost of staying is extremely low. That's why I say, it's worth staying there, you won't regret it!

Washbasins were just too small & none were available in our room.
Good breakfast & pleasant staff.

Had to change the room twice because of overbooking The second time I was even not informed of having to change the room, and the time I came back from sightseeing all my belongings had been taken out of the room (quite embarrassing) and I had to search for it in the hostel. Luckily I knew what I was missing.
good value for low price Close to railway station but very busy and noisy road. (free) ear plugs can help if window is closed. But with closed window the air is poor in the very small 6-bed-dorms.

Nothing not to like :]
Great location, free parking available off-site. immediatelly feels cosy and friendly place, has sofas and board games. Plenty of showers and toilets so that you never have to wait. Complimentary earplugs were excellent too. Highly recommended.

Room too cold. Windows don't keep the draught out. Bathroom sinks too small.
Really cheap. Convenient location.

Everything was very well with that price. Breakfast was also more than enough for that price.

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

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

Fair but complete facilities also with breakfast. A good deal to budget. Well located.

clean rooms, very close to the city centre and awesome breakfast.

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.
