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!

The best hostel in the world. Amazing pleace. Delicious breakfest (especialy local bread)! Second day in Riga we haven't booked any place and they found us extra room with fire place despite the fact that they had absolutely everything occupied. Service is great, they're really nice and helpful. I think that they speak almost every language :). Thanks for amazing weekend in Riga!

Very nice place with a friendly staff and an excellent atmosphere! It is a nice place to meet international people and get along with them. The place is colorful and pleasant to live in. I highly recommend this place which is also 10 minutes walking from the center so it's very convenient. Plus, it was clean and financially worth it!
