We stayed for 2 nights in a twin room. Rooms, bed, bathroom, kitchen and brakfast were basic but clean and very economical.

Really impressed with value for money! Breakfast was good (three types of bread, lots of choice of jam and savoury spreads, tomato, cucumber and juice) plus they had a nice collection of tea available. Was a little bit of a walk to city centre but it was interesting to get a bit out of the main tourist area.

The location is 15 minutes walk from the center, therefore the neighborhood is quite peaceful. The disadvantage is there is only a WC and a shower for 10-15 people.

I come to Riga often and I have stayed in different hostels over the years, but Central hostel is my favorite. There is space in rooms, it is clean and there are always nice people working the reception. Good to park the car outside, also close to main train station.

Great place, not far from the city center. Staff friendly and helpful, I think the price ( 9eur) is really low for such a good hostel. Enjoyed it to bits! The only disadvantage was the bedroom interior, intense green wall paint really makes your head hurt :)) anyway, definitely recommend it!

Great value for what it offers. Free breakfast in the morning which was nice, but the kitchen was really crowded so cooking was a bit tricky unless you timed it right. Location was ok. Quiet, but a little out of the way from the main area. Walking distance, but still a little far.
