I can perfectly understand why this hostel was awarded as the best hostel in Lithuania. Very cosy hostel, lovely owner and great atmosphere. I fully recommend it


It's a great and very friendly place, very helpfull and fun staff and lovely waffles in the morning! The pub crawl was great the living room is the best place to meet new people.


How all hostels should be run! Great info from staff, comfy and friendly common area. Only slight inconvenience was the toilet location.


Very nice hostel and very friendly atmosphere, facilities are good.


Extremely cozy hostel with wonderful owners! The common room is very nice, the rooms spacious and the bathrooms clean. The location is also superb! 5/5


Amazing location, very to the point and comfortable.

Great hostel - calm chilled communal area which is great for meeting people which makes your stay very sociable. Staff are enthusiastic and helpful and facilities are good - would recommend.


This place was so clean and the staff are extremely helpful. A great place to stay


Fantastic stay here in the centre of Riga! Hosts were so helpful and eager to show you their city. Fantastic atmosphere but still quiet for sleepung at night. I booked an extra night since it was a nice place and Riga was such good fun. (Great pancakes every morning :))


Very nice and clean Hostel, which gives you a homy feeling the moment you walk in. Everything is well taken care of without any feeling of stiffness. The location is great and waffles for breakfast the cherry on top ;)

The best to gogo to Riga. Personal very professional, happy and great courtesy. Clean rooms and baths. Like to stay at home.


We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights and it was for sure the best hostel of our trip. The staff is friendly and social and they create a good atmosphere in the hostel. Thanks to the comfortable common room it is easy to meet the other guests and the hostel proposes almost each evening some activities. There are enough bathrooms and everything is very clean. A great place to stay when you are in Riga, so we would definitely recommend it!


I found everything I needed in Cinnamon Sally and way more. From arrival till departure I can't really say 1 thing I missed or didn't like. I found a clean room with big lockers (!), very helpful staff and a great atmosphere. Keep up the good work!


Very nice little hostel with an homely feel. The staff is really nice and helpful, and the common living room provides an easy way of meeting fellow travelers.


The staff were helpful and friendly. Great kitchen area with many items available. Showers were hot and clean. Location is great, right near old town and extremely close to the bus and train station. Beds were comfortable. Having only two toilets for the whole hostel was annoying at times.


Had an excellent stay. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, Met lots of cool people and drank lots of vodka. The waffles were amazing. Played a spoon game with the staff and other guests. The drink is very cheap and staff are welcoming. I would definitely come back again. Thank you Dolca (D)!!!


Nice hostel. Felt very clean. Nice staff.


One of my favorite hostels! The staff were so friendly, inviting, and helpful :) I enjoyed our conversation and breakfast together. This hostel was well-located ad super chill. Extremely easy to meet people as a solo traveler, which was great! Will definitely stay here again. Thank you Cinnamon Sally!


Staff are very unfrienly


Great place. Feels like home immediately. During the night People Are really quite, but when they pass by our door, the floor was very noisy so you could hear every step taken. Hence improvement suggestion is to change the floor material. :-) but beside that, 👍👍👍
