We liked this hostel very much, there is a welcoming atmosphere(nice furnishing; a box, where you can put stuff that you don't need any more and leave it there for other guests; board games; free maps).Although it is not mentioned in the description, it is also possible to pay by credit cards. The stuff was helpful (they let us store our luggage in hostel for few hours after check out).This hostel is also suitable for families with children.The acommodation is very cheap.Definitely recommending!

The hostel doesnt look like on the pictures, it is more basic and simple, but it is ok. It took me a long time to find the hostel from the train station, but other than that everything was nice. There are lockers in the rooms, everything is clean. Good price-value. There is even a little breakfast! Hair dryers are available. The cleaning lady was a little bit rude - she rushed into the room with the repair guy while I was changing my clothes, and they just came in an kept the door open.

We had a perfect stay at Central Hostel Riga. The staff was nice, the rooms perfect and a great atmosphere. Was great to have a breakfast! The location is excellent to disdover Riga, near to the bus station and the main station and just a 15min walk to the city center. Would recomment it and defenitley come back on my next visit in Riga.

Central Hostel is great - the street it's on seems a bit dodgy at first, but has everything you need (pharmacy, food shops, little corner stores). The hostel itself is friendly and welcoming and the staff was quite helpful. Only minus points: Our mattress was very old and definitely needed replacing. Additionally, the walls are thin, so we could hear everything that happened in the neighboring rooms and in the hallway.

Good service, nice location, friendly staff and effortless stay. Would recommend for others too particularly when the price of accommodation was so reasonable.

PRO: Very nice and cozy. The best hostel for the ratio quality and price. The kitchen is well furnished and clean. CONS: A bit far from the center (10-15min). Staff not very friendly and not usefull for suggestions of what to see, what to do and where to eat and party. Despite the CONS, i sure reccomend this hostel and i sure reccomend a visit to the city.
