Friendly vibe in this hostel, a big common room where people can hang out with super comfy bean bags. Whether you want to party or just see the city it's a great spot right near the bus and train station.

Cinnamon Sally's could hardly be in a better location. If you're arriving by bus or train it's only a few minutes away, and is within easy walking distance of Riga's Old Town and the Moscow District. The hostel, being pretty inconspicuous and well secured, feels like a safe place to leave possessions. The staff are friendly and very knowledgable about the city, there's a good collegiate atmosphere and a stay isn't going to break the bank. Overall, Cinnamon Sally is highly recommended.

Centrally located, Nice atmosphere, comfortable, Large locker. A little confusing getting from Bus station basically don’t go down the first tunnel/underpass after the railway bridge. Look ahead you see MacDonald , use the next tunne, it has a lift . 2. Money changing outside the Hostel is very expensive, the Norvik bank outlet in Cental market the entrance to Cheese & Meet stall -5 mins walk) or at Gogola rela (5 min walk) the exchange rate at both is better by about 30% it worth it.

The hostel has a very receptive atmosphere. It has a really good location, near to markets and not far from the city center. The staff was very helpful and friendly, giving tips about what to do in the city. The bathrooms were well cleanedm the only problem was that you had to cross the 'living room' to get to the showers, which can be a little unconfortable.

Great hostel, very clean and spacious with nice staff! When we arrived we had a lot of tips about the city, where to go for a good and cheap meal, what to visit, where to shop, everything that you need to know! There is a good vibe in the hostel all day long with nice people to talk with and good music ! Enough shower for every body, you dont need to wait when you wanna take one ! In the morning you have a nice free breakfast, pancakes and some time little cakes!

This was probably one of the best hostels I ever stayed in. Staff was great. The room nice and cosy. There were private showers that were great. We had a pub crawl at night and it was really fun. So yes it is an amazing hostel to stay at when discovering Riga!

Easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, and the atmosphere and ethos of the place seems to attract equally like-minded people, all of whom are looking for a similar hostel experience: a laid-back and inviting common room, where welcoming conversation is always taking place, movie nights occur, craft evenings are on offer and waffles are sometimes served up in the morning; the staff & institution went above and beyond its call to help out; the facilities and location were impeccable.
