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.

we stayed for 3 nights at these athmospheric hostel and we enjoyed Riga as well as the hostel. Although one night was very noisy - inside the hostel and outside as well. Well, its a party city! I can recommend this place!

It is a very nice environment for those looking for a lot of fun or just a cool place to stay. The only suggestion I would do is to remove the game there is on the 2nd floor because it makes strong noises when playing and it bothers those sleeping right above, maybe to the -1floor.

I stayed one night, but I will come again for more nights. I loved the pub "under" the hostel. Staff was excellent and location was right where I wanted it in the old city of Riga, right next to the bus stop from airport. I also found company in the hostel since I was alone and they have a nice price policy for their guests in the pub! Cheers!
