Great Hostel, Great reception with some free beers and some info on partying in Riga (no strings attached). The hostel was partly still under construction which led to the fact that we were the only group present (22 persons), this was good for the atmosphere as we were not able to bother anyone. Staff was available 24/7 and was very easy and reasonable to talk to. To bad there were not drinks available at the hostel (except for coffee in the morning).

We didn't stay at Frank's hostel as it had no heating so we were moved to Doma Hostel which was in the old town. Conveniently located right in the thick of it. Our room was in reception so the amount of light coming into our room was rudiculous. There was also a draft coming through the window which wasn't great considering it was really cold outside! We could hear voices in reception. Bed were comfortable and clean. Gutted we weren't able to stay at Frank's but this hostel wasn't too bad.
