Our stay in this hostel was very pleasant. The atmosphere was chill, cozy and home-like. Hostel was clean and warm. Beds, blankets and pillows were comfy. The location was excellent because the bust "station" was near and old Riga was in a walking distance also.

Absolutely fantastic hostel. I kept extending my stay there as it felt like home. Super quiet and comfortable. The rooms are huge, the beds comfy, the bathrooms good, the wifi super fast. The staff were the best and the location just outside Old Town means it was quiet the whole time I was there. Thanks so much for the Gogol Staff for making my stay so great.


New hostel in a little bit shaddy area a bit away from the old town. Sadly there is no stove in the kitchen. Besides that the hostel is very clean and modern. The staff is really nice :)


The hostel is very nice, the staff is absolutely amazing. The only drawback is that it is quite noisy. You can hear every time someone opens or closes a door in any room.

We had a great time at this hostel! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Although it is not in the old part of the city you can get there within 10 minutes walking. I definitely recommend!


I am sorry for the delay in writing my review. The stay at Gogol was unforgettable since all our neighbours were also friendly it was really good experience there. My friend who stayed with me also have the same view to share. Thank you gogol for making my first visit to Riga perfect. Looking forward to Gogol in future. Sincerely Shanker and Lenka

We enjoyed our stay in this hostel, it was very quiet and peaceful. Besides that, this hostel is very clean. As this hostel is in the Russian neighborhood, you need to walk 5 to 10 minutes to the bus station or the city center, but that's okay. The only negative thing about this hostel, is that it doesn't have cooking facilities. There's a kitchen, but they only provide a microwave. But that's not the end of the world. Overall, we can really recommend you this hostel.


The hostel is clean and kept well. No noise, small park in front of the building. The managers are helpful. Close to the bus and train stations, walking distance to the Old Town.


Gogol Park Hostel is situated in a calm street close to the very center of the town, 10 min away from the train and bus stations. Very clean and calm place. Free wifi, no curfew, helpful staff.
