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.

Very friendly staff, we felt at home in an instant. They have a nice kitchen where you can cook, some good basics for breakfast, including fresh vegetables and lots of nice people :-)

Very tasty breakfast. Close to the train station as well to city centre ( ca 10 minutes on foot ).

The breakfast may be a bit poor, but consider they give you the basic things, the ones you really need in the end, for very little money. If you want a 5 star hotel, go somewhere else. For the price you pay it's perfect. internet, storage, bed, shower, bathroom. And a good location to get to the center or move forward.

Super positive feelings this hostel left to me. I stayed just one night, but would rather stay for longer. Good location close to both stations, friendly helpful staff, nice decor! - very cosi and bright not only rooms, but also "sitting-rooms" on all floors - with cpmfortable sofas, armchairs, candles and swing!! Little, but hospital kitchen with everything you can need and free breakfast for all, which is also very pleasing in the morning!^_^ Tanks guys! Will surely stay here next time.

Nice house, nice clean room with new equipment (I was in twin private room, in sector number 3). Complaints: Bathroom hadn’t been cleaned all time I was there. Waste bin was full of paper, and paper fell and was on the ground as well. Internet didn’t work one day. After dark, the streets around were empty and dark. Overall, I was (except for the mess in the bathroom) very satisfied.

The location is very good with all the sites near by. There is a cleaning lady that visits everyday so it's very clean. Breakfast is very generous with really good coffee offered all day. The kitchen and separate rest areas are a good way to meet people. Security it very good with entrance key, hall key

This was my 3rd stay here and I stayed in 4 bed dorm this time. It is good and spacious and there is a nice common area in the 3rd floor right next to it. Overall hostel is keeping up with it's level and remains my preferred place to stay in Riga.

A lovely, quiet and clean place to stay. The hostel is nice and bright on the inside and the rooms and toilets very clean. The breakfasts were great. My partner and I stayed in a double room and my only complaint would be that the mattress was quite uncomfortable. However wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Riga.

Very central and homely atmosphere-help yourself breakfast and hot drinks plus use of inhouse computers. Only downside was the tepid shower at 9.30am-maybe the hot water ran out!
