Property Description

The hostel is located on the 2nd floor right above the legendary rebellious Chomsky Bar hideout which dares you to question everything. The people running this place believe in Noam Chomsky's philosophy and consider cheap booze at the bar a basic human right.

Accommodation in the center of the city; 10 min walking distance from the central station. Situated in the oldest building in the block built sometime in the end of 1800s. The hostel finds itself in a small 3-room used-to-be living apartment which provides lots of privacy and a sense of feel-at-home.

The premises are freshly renovated and the interior was done by two rising stars of the Latvian arts scene both of whom you can occasionally meet downstairs behind the bar. The bar itself with its rough edged look and quality prices bring in a fair mix of the more artistic and open minded side of society.

The hostel is located above the famous Chomsky Bar party spot which gives you an opportunity to blend in to the local bohemia crowd while the placement also implies you might need to bring a pair of earplugs if you require forest-like quietude.

Latest Review

" Stayed several days at Chomskys, "hopping on/off" since we went to different places in between. Simply loved the place: helpful and uncomplicated stuff (only there when the bar is open), clean and beautiful/creative renovated facilities (of course depending on the "flatmates" and how many are there- 9 beds/1 toilet ;)), good windows (isolating the bar-sounds from downstairs) and in a great neighborhood away from the old town.
