Quiet, dingy hostel... Found it very boring nad charmless


Not in the old town, but I preferred the location. 10 minutes walk to bus station, train station, old town, supermarket, Central Market, waterfront...everything. Small market right next door too. Free breakfast simple but good. Nice and helpful staff. 2 common rooms to relax. I would stay here again.


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.

It was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! The breakfast is amazing and staff are very friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for the nice stay, and I will for sure be back!


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 :-)

We had a private bedroom which was very pleasant. Staff was responsive. Bathrooms clean. Overall, am excellent experience.


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.
