We spend a weekend away in Riga, found the hostel to be excellent. The staff were really friendly and helpful, as soon as we arrived they offered us a free beer! The room and all the facilities were well maintain and very clean. We also did the free walking tour organised by hostel which was fantastic, it was great being taken around town by a local. Highly recommend this hostel.

A very nice place to stay. A fantastic layout inside equipt with a bar, sky sports playing on the tv and a free beer on arrival! Perfect location being right in the middle of the old town over looking the river. Hard to beat.

5 minutes to hostel, very convenient, though spent some times to look for it (you can only see "Franks" outside the building, not the full name of the hostel). the room is big and very clean. And there is a big common room with a 24/7 BAR!!! awesome place to meet new people and drink and chat. The staffs are nice and helpful as well.

The personal working in the hostel is amazing! Everyone is so kind and helpful! Great atmosphere!! The hostel is not necessarily the ideal place if you want to have a good rest, but if you want to have fun and meet people, go for it!

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.
