The hostel is okay and has good value for money. The problem is that wifi is weak and unstable in the room. Also, kitchen is too small and easily get crowded in breakfast time.

Vey good hostel! Roomes are clean and nice, location is perfect located between trainstation, busstation and old town. Good breakfast and free tea and coffee the hole day. The kitchen was a little small when there is a lot of people eating at once.

Everything about this hostel is OK. The location is perfect - close to railway and bus stations and to the Old Town. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can leave you luggage before check-in and after check-out. Breakfast consists of bread, cheese, sausage, tomatoes, cucumbers, jam, flakes, milk, tea, coffee. Rooms, showers and toilets are clean and not smelly.

I stayed at the single room for two nights and I'm totally satisfied with my stay. The hostel is literary located in front of the central station, and just next to the old town area, so it's a perfect place to stay. Also, the staff were always very kind, polite, and helpful. Free breakfast was not bad at all, and I had no problem with using shared shower. I just found that the walls/floors were quite thin, but you can just borrow earplugs at the reception:) Thank you for having me!

Riga Hostel is a very nice place to stay in Riga. It's location is superb, so you can walk in the old town and to other parts of town very easily. It's very clean, has a good breakfast and the price is really affordable. I would certainly recommend Riga Hostel to everyone thinking where to stay in Riga.

Do not be deterred by the bizarre entrance in the middle of a McDonalds outlet. Very clean hostel, great location and excellent staff.

The hostel was good, friendly staff, nice guests, friendly atmosphere. the downsides were: there was a table in the middle of the 10-bed dorm, so there wasn't much room for bags so it got messy. The wifi doesn't reach some beds in the room. The common area is the kitchen area beside the reception. (not much space). This is good as everyone ends up talking to each other, but annoying if you are trying to sit out there to use the wifi.

We had a pleasant stay at Riga Hostel. It was a great location, clean, and functional place. A small common room/kitchen space, but we didn't spend much time there anyway so it didn't bother us.

I'd like to book the sofa if possible

Perfect location, about 10 minutes walking from bus/train station. Located above a mc donalds in a large building together with other hostels which might seem a bit off at first but the interior was really nice and the rooms were cute and clean.
