A great place with nice and very kind staff. The facilities are very good - basically, everything one could need. The atmosphere was very cool. I don't need to look for places to stay at Riga anymore - I'm sure this is the best option.

No room keys is a bit uncomfortable.

I had a lovely stay here. It was close to the bus and train stations and just a few minutes walk to the old town and art nouveau district. The hostel has a great relaxing and casual atmosphere with different activities each night. The staff were really easy going and friendly.

Cinnamon Sally was a lovely place to stay, really warm (both in temperature and atmosphere) and the staff are lovely and helpful. Beds are comfy and clean and the drinks fridge is always full. It was my first time visiting Riga and I'll definitely be back.

The hostel is super nice and confortable. Its always clean and super cozy. The location is very nice, close to bus station and with nice places to go at night very close. The only thing I didn't like was the attitude of one of the girls of the staff, almost always moody. But I had a great time there anyway!!!

Super hostel with lovely staff! I'd definitely stay again if I'm ever back in Riga. It's really easy to find, just opposite the train station. The common room is a great space to relax in and meet other people.

I've stayed in a lot of hostels all over the world, and this is definitely in the top 3. The common room is really the heart of the hostel and has a great layout and vibe; the owner lives on the premise and she is fantastic. It is not a party hostel, just so you know! Highly recommended if you are staying in Riga!

Cannot recommend this hostel enough. The most amazing place we have stayed in europe period. The staff went above and beyond making sure everyone were comfortable. Making traditional russian nibbles for supper and then home made waffles for breakfast! The rooms are large and clean with amazing beds and pillows. Everything is spotless and well set up. And the vibe in the hostel is so relaxed and welcoming.The best backpackers in europe!
