The atmosphere in general was very nice, perfect location and attention. The private toilet was so old and quite dirty, the room smell strange I'll improve these points and it will be a perfect site to stay in Riga.

Really nice staff...but the beer is really too expensive in your bar ;-)

Great hostel! A bit quiet this time of year, but the bar is opening 24 hours a day, there are a bunch of pubs right around the hostel, and it's centrally located in the Old Town! Definitely worth a visit!

What an amazing place. We were a group of 13 Stags, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The 24 hours reception was great at easing worries over security. Whilst a lot of hostel was being renovated this did not affect our stay in the slightest. I cannot recommend this place any higher. thank you all :)

Dana and Vicky were amazing. The girls helped us with making plans for our weekend and were there for whatever we needed. They made our stay extra special.

Very good hostel. Continental breakfest (only margarin, jam, bread, tea/coffe, milk and cerials).Good location in old city, close to train and bus station. Dislike only that every time when you ringing a bell, you is asked about your name and room #

We were at the Friendly Fun Franks Backpackers Hostel for New Year's Eve. -> Best decision. We had a very nice stay. While check-in the staff (mostly nice girls) offered a beer at the bar. The staff was very friendly, offered sightseeing tours through Riga and other events. Even New Year's Eve was organized -> We had a funny pub tour, by a lovely guide!

Not so friendly, not so fun. The staff was not so helpful and the hostel had no character. The have good facilities that could be used in a more integrative way. Be aware of bed bugs!
