Viss būtu ļoti jauki, bet, manuprāt, būtu jāaizliedz alkohola lietošana hostelī (Rīgā netrūkst bāru, kafejnīcu, restorānu u.tml.), jo savādāk gadās tā, ka ieejot savā istabā jus ieraugiet… veselu baru (atvainojos) urlu dzeram šņabi!

Good hostel :)

We stayed at the 2-person room. Staff was really nice but all in all the atmosphere was a bit strange at this hostel. It seemed like we were the only tourists in their 20s, meaning that all the other guest were middle-aged Russians, which was a bit random. Cleanliness of shower and toilet left room for improvement. All in all the price was okay for a private room for new years, but I wouldn't stay here again since Riga has way better hostels to offer for the same money.

What we don't like - we stayed there 2 nights, and asked the receptionist to keep our luggage in the hostel about 5 hours. Whilst she said that it's possible, when leaving room we're extra charged, even we're not informed beforehand. And the price was more than for a night.

Great Hostel with friendly staff and a warm and cosy feel. As a small group we had our own self contained 'apartment' with everything we needed which was very welcome. We were out most of the time but the main hostel reception area looked like it would be a great place to relax and unwind and there was plenty of information around to help with a visit.

NIce Hostel if you're looking for somewhere quiet and away from all the hustle and bustle of the old town. Good free breakfast and facilities for preparing your own meals. Lots of space in the dorms, and 2 common rooms within the building and one outside.

Spacious rooms and common areas, a great change from cramped hostels. My four-bed dorm had only one bunk bed and much space to lounge around. Simple but very adequate breakfast and warn, efficient staff. Only drawback, for some people, is the street it's located on, which is rather drab and quite unappealing after dark -- but safe as far as I can tell. As for the "extra" walk from the city center, it's worth walking a few extra minutes to enjoy the creature comforts. I'd happily stay again.
