The location is great! The single room was really just a 3-person dorm room to myself, so not like a hotel room. The beds seemed to be children's beds, maybe 1.90 m long. The common area smelled a bit odd. Bathroom and showers were quite clean.


A nice, little hostel just a few minutes from the central bus stop and the old town of Riga. The rooms were really cheap and clean and WIFI, coffee and tea were free. Late check-in wasn't a problem since the staff was really friendly!

Dear Sina, It was nice to see you and thank you for choosing Elizabeth’s Youth Hostel, thank you for your favorable review of our hostel! it would be nice to see you again, :-)


The location is great. The kitchen was just a microwave with a fridge and a sink which wasn't much. After a certain hour you where left alone with staff to be found in the hostel, but the staff was very helpful. and the price is not much so it's not bad.


Great hostel for the money. Staff (owner?) was awesome and very friendly. Had a tv room to hang out in + refrigerator. About a ten minute walk from the old town of Riga, 5 minute walk to the bus station (coach) and city bus station was right across the street. Supermarket was also directly across the street with plenty of fast food places to eat. If I go back to Riga again this place is where I'll stay.

Dear Andrew, thank you for choosing our hostel, thank you also for your favorable opinion of our hostel! it would be nice to see you again, welcome! :-)


- Staff was very unfriendly, even rude. - There was not really a common room for us to hang out, only the enterance. -We got a lot of complaints from neighbours starting from 23:00. There were older people with children, and older people who needed to get up early for work. It statet that it was a youth hostel, but we still needed to be carefull not to make too much noise. - The matras of the bed was terrible, it was so thin my back hurts because of the springs sticking out.
