The hostel is located well. It's in walking distance from everything and quiet at night. The rooms are clean and really nice renovated! Breakfast is basic, but ok. The staff is really friendly and helpful! Great deal! Thanks a lot!

The staff are all very friendly and helpful. It's very popular,so the kitchen can get overcrowded, but you can eat in the sitting room as well as the kitchen. Very handy to the station.

Excellent experience! The down side: only one shower was working in the apartment. Was not a problem at the moment because was not fully booked but may be a problem with more people there. I hope it is a temporary problem.

The Appartment (Suit) was really nice. The breakfast was ok. The Suit entrance has been smelling a bit but other than that the hostal and it's location have been really nice. Thanks also for the support and the welcomeness.

The hostel is okay for a short stay. Its location is in a local area a short walk from the old town but close to train and bus station. The staff and breakfast where okay but the bathrooms could have been cleaner. There are some common rooms but the kitchen is quite small which is not so practical during breakfast time. But all in all okay for the price.

I've stayed at loads of hostels and don't usually write reviews but felt compelled to on this occasion. This hostel ticked all the boxes. I was one of the many who came to run the marathon this weekend in Riga, I only stayed one night and at different points there were three receptionists, all were helpful and had a smile on there face. I stayed in the 6 bed mixed dorm, it was clean and bright, had clean linen and a clean towel. For 5 euros 20 there was free breakfast and free wifi. great hostel

I had to stay there for 1 night only as I had a night gap between my flights. The location is quite alright and not far from the airport bus stop. I stayed in a 4 bed mix dorm. The mattress there was a dirty porolon with no coverage. The linen was clean. In my room were two men, who didn't cause much discomfort till 4-45am when one of them switched on the light to read and probably pray. The breakfast is provided, that's a good thing. The staff was quite nice. Wifi didn't work in my room.

I liked location in a quiet area and high cleanliness in the hostel. Simple breakfast and helpful staff. Unfortunately there is no sound insulation. The doors are not closed firmly and that adds noise to shouting neighbours. OK place for 1-2 nights.

Excellent value for money, lovely atmosphere, rooms clean and very comfortable although they could do with buying new pillows as they were very lumpy. Would definitely stay again
