Property Information:

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 staff is very nice and the hostel pretty and clean, even though it might seem otherwise when seeing the front door for the first time. Just beware that two of the three rooms are go-through-rooms, so in order for people from the back room to go to the kitchen or bathroom they need to pass through. Also keep in mind that reception is only open from 16:00, so you should pay the day before your check-out.

Things to Note

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. Reception in the bar, approach bartender.
