Unhelpful staff, walls so thin it was like sleeping in the same room as the neighbour, partition walls so gaps thus the poor sound proofing. Not a friendly place- massive list of all the things you can't do and how they will charge you extortionate amounts for breaking one . Colourful neighbourhood to put it nicely,


Very close to the Riga central market but quiet at evenings and mornings The staff was very helpful, spoke at least English and Russian The room was very clean and recently renovated My room was located in a mansard with a window. It also had a private bathroom with a shower It's located very close to the city center, just 5 minutes of walking The only disadvantages were no breakfast and no kettle in the room The value for money is excellent

Good value for money but the location is not easy to find!


The location of the hostel is good. Located behind the market it's only a few minutes from the busstation och close to the old town. Although the area is a bit creepy in the evening and i wouldn't walk there alone... The room was clean, but the sheets were filthy. The room was also very cold in the night and the walls are pretty thin. But generally it was good value for the money.
