Set in Rīga, within less than 1 km of Riga Nativity of Christ Cathedral and a 13-minute walk of Latvian National Museum of Art, Hotel Saida - quality hostel offers free WiFi throughout the property. The property is close to several well-known attractions, 1.7 km from Riga Town Hall Square, 1.8 km from House of Blackheads and 1.8 km from Riga Dome Cathedral. The property is 1 km from Vermanes Garden, and within 600 metres of the city centre.

A few things to say: 1. The facility is not a hotel per say in the sense that you don't have room service and a staff that cleans after you and provides you clean towels... but you have everything you need to make it work on your own. If you expect 5 star services you will be disappointed but if you can manage things on your own it is a great value. 2) location is great and rooms are quite nice. 3) Riga is absolutely beautiful.

All rooms feature a seating area to relax in after a busy day. Every room is equipped with a shared bathroom.

This is a large apartment with many rooms. It has two shared toilets and one has a shower. First of all, I would like to mention that I am very satisfied with the cleanliness of this place. Shower and toilets were clean and well maintained. The location of the place allows you to reach many destinations on foot. From the moment I made the reservation until I checked out, they were incredibly attentive and made all the necessary directions on booking. they answered all my questions. Also, I loved having a water filter in the kitchen, very thoughtful.

Looking for a hostel?

Budget travellers know that there is no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a bit more.

    Great location in Riga old town. Friendly staff, very clean, and the curtains on the bunk beds offer some privacy. Each bed has a single power outlet and a light. Tea and coffee is available at all times in the kitchen, and there are common areas with board games for chilling. A nice hostel with good value for money 🙂

    Nice, affordable place with discount(making it actually cheaper in price than most youth hostels), walkable to most sites in the city centre, check-in is easy, inner space is decent and roomy (as most places in Riga), and the room is well heated up in a damp, cold Spring.
