We stayed in 2-person room. It was very clean and peaceful room. We didn't have any problem with noise when the window was closed. Bathroom was very big and comfortable. There could be however bigger trash can in the room, not just one small in the bathroom. The location was more than perfect, right next to the Central Market where we bought breakfast everyday and short walk to the old town, bus station and train station. I would stay again.


I liked the location in the Markets - near to the Tourist Area but not part of it. Room was not very appealing but clean and there was plenty of hot water. All in all a very good budget option.


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
