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!

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!

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.

Awesome hostel in with a 5/10 min walk to the old town, great restaurants, and night life. Ckosecto the main train station and bus station. Thoroughly enjoyed my time there with a great social atmosphere and helpful about what to do in and around Riga.

Fantastic! Lively and clean hostel that pays huge attention to detail. Everytime I was wondering about something I usually found the solution within a minute. For everything else, staff is available 24/7. Their beds are also highly comfortable. Overall one of the best hostel I've stayed in so far. Definitely join Dixon on his weekly pub crawls - it is just lots and lots of fun.

Great hostel - works for either chilling or going out. Really good common room so recommend for solo travellers. Also really like the honesty system for the beer fridge - always a plus!
