In January, 2013 we have moved to completely new building, few steps away from the old one. We have upgraded the new hostel with completely new showers, WCs and complete reconstruction was ended in March, 2013. Now hostel is fitted with new beds, bedclothes and other interesting stuff.
The hostel got its name because of its location in the very centre of Riga, near to the most historic place - the Doma square (13th century).
The hostel is equipped with video surveillance and the front doors are closed for outsiders to guarantee the safety of our guests. Even the interior of our hostel is designed to make you feel like you are at home where you can have a relaxing time from impressions of your day.
The history of the building in Mazā Jaunavu iela 8 (8 Little Virgins street) extends from 1524, when the owner was H.Humpel, but the building was finished in year 1766 as an Ebels warehouse. In year 1878 there are data about the reconstruction project by K. A. Beck and architect R. Pflug. The most important value of the building is the rooftop wooden structures in the attic, which has remained since the first half of 18th century. Nowadays every room is with a little-bit different design, mostly from originally restored wood.
It is cozy in the premises of our hotel and each client can enjoy an individual approach. There are 11 rooms in 4 floors. In every floor there is a kitchen, many showers, WCs and a lounge. We can accommodate up to 80 people, arranging 4 additional beds with comfortable foldaway beds for 6-8 EUR.
