This is a cool bar but as for a hostel there isn't a good atmosphere and you aren't introduced by any warm welcoming staff members. It's hard to tell who works in the bar or hostel. Not a good place to meet people or party would recommend staying elsewhere however was clean and good location

Rhys and I had an amazing time here. Both really impressed by the cleanliness of the hostel. Great atmosphere, and great location. The staff were friendly and amazingly helpful (so was the owner). Only thing it lacked was a kitchen, but I hear that's in the works. Besides, there's heaps of cheap food around, so it's no issue. I've already recommended this hostel to a few other travellers. The hostel can make or break your experience in a city. This hostel made ours!

Great and clean hostel in an excellent location. Downstairs is the most social place in town aka. the bar, with really cool staff on it. Loads of events with the sister hostel Naughty Squirrel. God all round

Good location, walking distance to central bus station and bus stops to airport, just on edge of the old town, so everything reachable on foot. Bathroom and Bedrooms all tidy and clean. Cool bar and lounge area to relax in. Wish I had longer than 1 night, and the energy, to fully experience the hostel! A great night's stay!

Perfect facilities, very clean and spacious rooms with some nice touches (individual headlamps, two sockets per bed, coat hangers) and the best bathrooms I have seen in a hostel so far. The hostel's location is also great, the staff professional and the bar offers an attractive selection of drinks at a very good price.

Easily the best hostel I've stayed in. I couldn't have asked for anything a single thing to be any better. Immaculate. Comfortable. Great atmosphere. No problems whatsoever.

Great place, it's a party hostel but with our private room it's really up to you to take part in it or not. Don't notice the noise or anything, while you can crab a beer any time you like. Really enjoyed the place and the area!

This place is awesome... for the right person. I'm willing to say it was the best hostel I've ever stayed in. I was looking for an inexpensive place that was really close to old town with an amazing bar. It had all of those things. The bar had insane deals almost every night and it was a great place to meet people. You also get morning beers and a welcome beer. Honestly, were you looking for more? Stay here. It's great.

A great place for beer drinkers. And a loud one. More of a pub, than of a hostel.

Great place to stay. clean, secure and å friendly staff. Did not manage to get up in time (before 12) to get my free breakfast beer though! Good for meeting people if you are a solo traveller.

This hostel was one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The beds are super comfy the rooms have block out curtains, they provide towels clean linen and super hot showers that you don't want to get out of. Location is awesome right in the middle of Old Town walking distance to everything. You get a welcome beer and a check out beer which is a nice touch from a combi van that's been decked out as a bar. Staff are super helpful. 10 out of 10 for everything.

This is perhaps the coolest, friendliest hostel I have stayed in in many years. As long as you remember the clearly stated facts: a) there is no kitchen and b) this is not a 'quiet' place, theres no way you can fail to have an awesome time here. Warm welcoming staff, sparkling clean facilities, funky decor, amazing bar and good prices. Even though I saw all of Riga this time, i'm coming back just to hang out here.
