We enjoyed the stay but for one detail: you have to watch your property (in this case a deck of playing cards and shower gel), otherwise it's gone. But since I don't know who stole that stuff, it doesn't affect my rating. The exhausters should be cleaned. We were impressed by the availability of free coffee at all times.

Really wonderful hostel. Kudos for you. The only downside experienced was very thin walls. Was staying with a friend in a private room and it was close to the communal area and if people talked too loudly, you could hear everything. But that's because of the building not something hostel has to deal with.

I only stayed at the hostel for one night, because we travelled further. The staff was really friendly and wanted to help. It's a cozy, clean place to stay. Next time if i book Riga I will definitely stay there again. Thank you for everything. :)

Good location, cheap price, breakfast included... Excellent option in Riga. The only bad thing: there are a few bathrooms, so you have to queue in the morning to use them.

The hostel is in a great location, staff were friendly and helpful (for example printing my plane tickets). I liked the social area/kitchen which was clean and cosy. Overall I would definitely recommend it. It could be improved by having more plugs/extension cables available in the rooms and lamps for each bed as in many other hostels.

I liked the location of the hostel, it's the center of Riga. The price for the room is quite ok for me. There is only one big disadvantage for me - the place is really noisy.

Always nice staff showing facilities, very nice breakfast, very informative notice board about Riga. It will be at best with plugs nearby. But with such price, they give me more than I expect!

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed. The cleanliness, the friendliness and the services (2 computers ready to use for example, incredible) all really went much beyond my expectations. Riga Hostel should provide an example to the other hostels all around the world, especially in terms of cleanliness and relaxed athmosphere.

Nice hostel. Very friendly staff. Not a huge hostel but makes for a very friendly small group of people. Many thanks

Nice hostel and I would stay there again. Only negative is I think the walls must be a bit thin so ear plugs are needed - but then they usually are at hostels!

Everything is a bit run down, ripped bedding and broken showers but what do you expect for €5? No lockers in some of the rooms was disappointing, but if your out all day and the hostel has to be cheap then this would be a good option.

Very nice stay, the hostel is really near to the city center (both Old Riga and City Center). The staff gave us all the information to find the hostel and to visit Riga, nothing really major to complain about, just the cleanliness was a little bit under the average but not really a big deal compared to what I paid for :)
