Though you would not guessed it from the outside, Central Hostel is definitely one of the nicest places you might find in Riga. Inside you'll find very nice and spacey rooms and clean and aesthetic bathrooms. The staff is extremely friendly and always ready to help which means a lot when its your first time in this beautiful city. You'll find lots of travelers from all round the world to share stories/spend time in the common room or during the breakfast in the kitchen. Definitely recommend

We stayed at three hostels during our time in Riga. This was definitely the best of them. It was quite a big hostel (taking up most of the building) but had a cosy atmosphere. The breakfast was amazing with fresh fruits and vegetables, cereals, toasts with a range of spreads. Oh and the coffee was great! The staff were really kind and helped us a lot with anything we needed. I'd definitely recommend it!

If you don't want to meet other travellers, stay here. The common rooms are awkward and don't lend themselves to a very social place.

The hostel is ok, but very small, it's a flat transformed in an hostel with a very small kitchen/living room/corridor/entrance/reception all together. A bit strange. But a nice breakfast.

very good!Clean kitchen! Breakfast is nice with fresh friut and toast. Location is good. The hostel is not far away from the Central market so that we can buy food for our dinner.

This is our 2nd time staying here. The first time we stayed in the 6 bed dorm, which was fine. This time we had a private room. The private was great. Once again we experienced helpful, nice staff, simple but good free breakfast, convenient location in a normal area (not old town), nice common rooms, free wifi and it was clean.

Lovely cozy feel but also a nice variety of common spaces and nooks to just sit and read if you prefer. Seemed perfect for families or those seeking a quieter space. Don't be off out by the street it's on--once you're inside the place is very safe, clean, and comfy. I would definitely stay here again! The breakfast spread was very generous, a nice added bonus :) oh, and the showers were really clean.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Completely clean. Really nice decor and furnishings make it feel like a cosy apartment. There are two really nice lounges, a good kitchen, plus even sofas in some dorms, so there's loads of space to chill. Great social atmosphere. Good location on a quiet street, a short walk from the Old Town and the train/bus stations. Free wifi and 2 computers. Very generous breakfast included. And with costs getting as low as €7 per night, it's amazing value!

Not in the old town, but I preferred the location. 10 minutes walk to bus station, train station, old town, supermarket, Central Market, waterfront...everything. Small market right next door too. Free breakfast simple but good. Nice and helpful staff. 2 common rooms to relax. I would stay here again.

Really a great place to stay: perfect situated, very clean and neat with helpful staff and delicious breakfast. You can’t find anywhere better, I bet. If you ever happen to stay in the town, don’t hesitate to choose them. Cheers !!

The hostel is good, situated 10 minutes away from the train and bus station and another 10 minutes walking from the city centre. The value for money is excellent, it offers all you need if you go a few days to Riga and breakfast is included. I would recommended it if you don´t want to spend too much

The staff is very helpful and the location is central to the old city for tourism. There is no common area to watch movies, which is acceptable but imperfect. It was clean but not super clean.

It is a little bit far from bus station and train station(around 10-20 mins). Staffs Cavan speak in eng and are very nice. Free baggage storage and breakfast is provided.
