Great atmosphere where you get to talk with other guests while eating a fresh baked cake. The room and shower was great as well, tidy. We were 3 people and were moved to a 4 bedroom for free. The staff really gives the extra mile taking care of the hostel and creating a very welcoming environment. Will definitely come back. Thanks for boworring umbrellas when we had none. And lovely waffles for breakfast.
The staff was pretty friendly for the most part, one girl in particular was very outgoing and talkative but on the opposite side, the girl with the tattooed arm seemed bothered any time I asked for anything and I also heard her tell 2 people they needed to make sure they left because there was a big group coming in, even though we're told we can stay at the hostel until we need to leave. It's not always what you say but how you say it. The volunteer staff was friendly.
Great staff, location perfect if you want to go to either Old Town, Central Riga or Central Market and ofc those waffles !!! Just one thing : you might wait when you'll feel like going to the WC but don't worry, you'll always find someone in the common room willing to chat with you!
Very clean and welcoming place. Staff are readily available and genuinely want you to have a good time. Having the kitchen, front desk and common area all in the one place near the entrance makes this place easy to interact and meet new people!
Had a very nice stay there with lovely people and staff members. Especially loved the atmosphereatmosphere and the free waffles in the morning.
Not a "party hostel" more a situp and talk hostel, depends what floats your boat. Centrally located. VERY NICE
This is our favorite hostel so far! It's got such a friendly and homey atmosphere. Very helpful and fun staff, close to the old city, quiet at night. We loved the Belgian waffles in the morning and movie nights in the lounge. We wish we could have stayed in Riga longer, just because the hostel was so great. Would highly recommend!!
Everything was very organized and clean. There are many social events going on if someone wants to socialize but at the same time they have some rules for those who want to be more quiet. The staff is very helpful and the location great. Everything is very clean and they have also laundry, shower gel etc. I definately recommend it
Just a great bunch of people working there in a very homely hostel:)
Very nice hostel, had a great stay. It is very clean, comfortable, the staff is helpfull and friendly, great atmosphere, delicious free waffles in the morning! The common area next to kitchen and very close to the helpdesk make easy to interact with other people but at the same time they have a quiet time after midnight. I recommend it!
Really great place, had a great day here, would definitely come back the setup here is excellent and the guys are great who run it.
I stayed here on two separate trips for nine nights total and had an amazing time! The staff is super friendly and went above and beyond to make sure myself and everyone else had a comfortable stay. Laine and Krista did an awesome job hosting the pub crawl and setting up nightly activities for the guests like movie nights and hockey games.
My stay at Cinnamon Sally's was excellent. It felt just like staying at a friend's house. There were always people visiting and playing board games in the common room, quiet music was playing and staff greeted us like friends. The hostel is safe and the accommodations are spacious and well maintained. Our room had a large vanity and lots of space as wel as lockers. I felt safe and welcomed at this hostel!

Don't let waffle haters get you down, waffles are great.
Really nice hostel with a good common area to hang out. Very clean and lots of nice touches like free ear plugs, free shampoo and towels etc.
I had a great stay. Very clean, comfortable, great staff and it is perfectly set up to hang out and chat with other travellers. My only complaint is the 12am closure of the common room. That aside, I'd highly recommend this hostel to anyone. Cheers for a great stay
Amazing stay! Very clean and comfortable, nice location. The staff are really what make it so great - they are always eager to give directions, recommendations etc. Make sure to do Dixon's Pub Crawl! If you're looking for a quiet place to stay, would not recommend here.
Great place, good and helpfull staff. Very cenral location close to old town.
