Unfortunately not all rooms have lockers which is what a lot (us included)of people book certain hostels for. Though they did offer to hold our passports in a safety deposit box.

Everything was great, friendly staff, cozy hostel, very tasty breakfast! The only bad thing was the noise from the traffic at night.

The staff was really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was also really good considering the cheap prices. The location is really central which makes exploring easy but our room faced a busy street so you couldn't leave the window open at night because it was too loud. The toilets and showers weren't always that clean and the mattress was pretty old and worn-out.

We've stayed in 6-bed dorm. The room was extremely small, about 9 sq.m, and smelly (because it was occupied by 6 persons). I believe it should be used only for 4 beds, not more! There was almost no air, and if you open the window, there was a big street with intensive traffic. Blanket cover was much smaller then the blanket. It was a hard night. Other facilities,common area, breakfast and location were great. Stuff was nice and helpful.

All in this hostel was perfect! The location, the rooms and bathrooms, the breakfasts and the girls in reception were so nice and gave me some useful advice about what to visit in Riga!

This was a great hostel for the price I paid! Super close to the bus station, although I got a little confused with the directions at first. Plenty of bathrooms, which I liked - I never had to wait in line like at other hostels. Small, but clean with everything you need! Would recommend and stay here again

Perfect location: close to bus terminal and city center therefore also rather noisy. Helpful staff. No big sinks therefore washing clothes is difficult. Bed sheets are very thin which is not too hygienic, mattresses rather old but nevertheless: very clean in general. Socialable atmosphere.

Everything was really cool except the atmosphere - somehow there was no friendly aura.

Very nice hostel with great atmosphere for a very cheap budget. I've stayed in a lot of hostels throughout Europa and Riga hostel was definitely one of the nicest hostels. Also the breakfast was great.

Came from Northern Ireland and stayed, It's a nice friendly Hostel. Lovely staff....the only thing was for me is that you have to pay for two people if you are sleeping in a double bed which i thought it's a bit much because it's still one bed! All in all it was good!
