Nice hostel. Clean, cheap, nice people on reception, great location, a lot of bathrooms and toilets ;)


We had a great stay at Riga hostel, I arrived earlier than the check in time, but my room was still ready and was perfect for what I needed. There were lockers to keep belongings safe and a cute little kitchen to make tea and coffee when needed. The staff were very friendly and always around to ask questions etc. Breakfast was nice! The hostel felt social but also would be quiet enough to relax after a long day exploring Riga. Location is good to get to both the old town and also the bus station


It locates near to the main transportation to different parts of Riga. Lockers are provided! Have met lots of great people and the staff there are extremely helpful too! Good value for money!


Great, clean and well-located hostel. The only downside is that the private room is pretty noisy. They do give out free earplugs.


Totally recommend, one of the best hostels I have visited!


Very noisy and hot rooms, the staff was generelly quite disinterested and hardly helpful. And every morning you had to wait for the bathrooms and showers.


Nice hostel but not recommended for solo travelers, it's rather a family place.


Great hostel! Central location and helpful staff in a super cozy hostel. I would raccomand it to anyone :)


Good hostel right near the train and bus station, in an OK neighborhood. We could park our car free of charge in another hostel a few blocks away.


Best hostel I ever stayed in, very clean, great free breakfast, best location, a lot of information and nice staff. The hostel is small so it's easy to get to know people. The wifi is somewhat weak in the dorms, but good enough for basic stuff and it is strong in the common area. Highly recommand!


Clean, spacious and very well located hostel with attentive staff. Good free breakfast and modern kitchen facilities. Plenty of bathrooms and WCs. All in all very good price/value.


nicey decorated roomsl


good breakfast


perfect stay there


Amazing breakfast.


Great hostel especially for the price. Small enough that it was easy to meet people over the included breakfast. Plenty of hall bathrooms. Many outlets throughout the room due to extension cords. Helpful staff. Highly recommended!


My sister and I had a very nice stay at Riga Hostel. It was extremely conveniently placed right next to the railway station and all central bus stops and only a few minutes' walk away from the old town. The double room we stayed in was nicely furnished and spacious for a hostel room. The staff did their utmost to keep the hostel clean, including cleaning the showers and toilets three times a day! I can warmly recommend this hostel.


This Hostel is Ok. Great Location and avarage in most services. Some rooms are very warm, noisy and with lots of light. Better curtains and ventilation will improve a lot this place. Staff was great and helpful, just one little girl was a bit grumpy and rude time to time, other than that, it was ok!


Perfect location and very nice atmosphere. The bed is very comfortable and rooms are nice. Excellent for the price.


Lovely hostel! A place to feel good and relax. The location is perfect - directly in the city center! The staff was super nice and friendly and willing to help at every time! We loved our stay here! Thanks for everything!
