A well-organized hostel! It's more than our expectation. The staff was nice and helpful even though there was some information that she gave us was wrong. The location was fine during working days, since the only bus line that's near the hostel operate much more frequent when it's a working day. They offered self-served hot chocolate free of charge, which is definitely a sweet offer when it's freezing cold out there.

This was a very nice hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful; it was quite warm when the outside temperature was -11C. It was quiet which is important to me and very clean and I enjoyed my stay there. Also it was very economical in price but with the best atmosphere, comfort and facilities.

It is realy close to the center and the bus station, we just stay one night and it is comfortable enough for short stays.

Amazing atmosphere, superb helpful staff. It didn't feel like hostel, it felt like a house share,which is amazing. Felt like coming home. Will definitely return. Recommended

I stayed for one night in a single room - it was warm, clean, the interior was nice and comfortable, the free wifi was good and the workers were very helpful. Very good location as well. A very positive experience, especially compared to some other hostels in Riga!

BEST HOSTEL EVER!!! How I wish all hostels were like this one! First of all, for a really cheap price you get a 3 bed room which is super comfy, warm and beautifully decorated, the staff is super friendly and they'll help you out with anything you need, the hostel has amazing facilities: nice common rooms, a great kitchen, the rooms are perfect, it's a 10 completely!

10 min walk to train&bus station, old town. 5 min walk to airport services. 24h open kitchen, gives earplugs and city map if you need. Doesn't trying to charge for towels or thnigs like that. Cozy place, definetely would recommend. Only advice is to renew pillows and sheets. They are clean but doesn't feel so comfortable.

I like this hostel. It is 10-15 min. walk away the railway- and coach station and the old town surrounded by local small shops and bars to eat. Dormbeds, two commonrooms, the kitchen, showers are clean. The good breakfast at 8-11: coffee, tea, juice, three differend kind of bread, cheese, butter, tomatos, cucumbers, cornflakes, jam, milk. The uoung staff is nice. Some of the guests are russians, which dont speak english.

Great place, I would come back. If you don't mind walking 15-20 min to the city center, don't miss to stay in Central hostel. It is very clean and you have everything that you need. It was totally worthy to stay there.

Amazing Hostel! From three hostels where I stayed during my trip to Riga, this one was definitely the best. It has a great breakfast, with a wide variety of cheeses, breads, juices, etc and it is very clean. It is located also in a peaceful area in the city, appropriated for sleeping and relaxing. I also made some friends during my stay in this hostel. I highly reccomend.

All the hostel and facilities was perfect. I think that for cleaningliness of the beds, the linen should cover the total lenght of the bed. It is a bit disgusting when you see that old matrass. Thanks for everything! was nice beeing there!
