Perfect hostel! Fantasticly located in the old town close to every sights. It's just a minute from a bus station and close to a supermarket. Everything is very clean and brand new. The common rooms are amazing, kitchen is well equiped, and they play really nice music there. There is even a huge terrace. Lockers in the dorms are provided. Staff is really cool, easygoing and helpful. I have really good time at Seagulls Garret and had met awesome people there. Highly recommend to stay there.

Cute place to stay, and the staff is very helpful! Common area and porch are really nice. Although the lack of bathrooms is very inconvenient. Also, if you're staying on the top floor (6 person dorm), don't bring a heavy suitcase. No elevator.

This is by far one of the best hostels that I ever stayed. With a perfect location just 5 minutes walk from de bus or train station and more 10 minutes walk to the mains square of Riga in the Old Town. Staff is very friendly and helpfull, besides that staff is all the time trying to make the atmosphere better and happy. The hostel have good lockers in every room, bathrooms are very clean and the kicthen is great with everything you need.

We enjoyed our stay at Seagulls Garrett, it is a very modern & clean hostel (apart from the lockers as they obviously don't get cleaned as they were dirty inside). We made use of the kitchen facilities which were great & the kitchen is well equipped with pans, plates, cutlery & drinking glasses etc. We were in a 10 bed room which wasn't particularly social but the hostel itself wasn't particularly social either but there is a nice common room and the staff are very helpful.

A great hostel with dedicated and friendly staff willing to help you experience some of the local culture. There are lockers under each bed with keys provided, breakfast is a simple cereals and toast with jam and the communal spaces are pleasant and not near any of the bedrooms so noise isn't a problem. The location is great for the buses, trams and trains and walking around old town.

Nice hostel with nice staff who can tell you insider tips where to go in Riga. Also you can rent bikes which was really nice. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms too. The location is excellent. It is close to the train station and in the middle of the old town. Would recommend it.

I only spent one night at this hostel but I absolutely loved it! As soon as I arrived at lunchtime, Katja sat down with myself and two others who had just arrived and gave us maps and spent some time recommending what she enjoyed and helping us plan our day. The hostel offered a guided walking tour, although I didn't go on it. In the evening, Katja took a group of us out to dinner and a Latvian Folk Dancing night and it was loads of fun! Hostel is v friendly, clean, modern and bright. Fantastic.

nice hostel with fun staff, but this is Riga so there were still loads of obnoxious drunk people that made lots of noise. the hostel was very clean and smelled nice though. only suggestion is that the lockers are quite noisy and wake people up in the night.

I don't think this is a very good hostel for meeting people and the atmosphere wasn't very social. The facilities could be better. There are only 2 showers and toilets on a floor. When the female one was too dirty to use I had to use the male one, which didn't even have a washbasin. There are no mirrors in the dorms so if someone wants to use one they have to take up a bathroom. Charging 5 euros for laundry is expensive compared to other hostels especially as you have to do it yourself.

Thank you for choosing our hostel! We are constantly trying to improve hostel and any comment is important source of information. Unfortunately mirror was broken a day before your arrival, now it is fixed. sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you for the tip about laundry.We implemented new offer, that laundry is cheaper, during the night. Seagulls Garret Hostel team

The hostel has the best possible location in the old town. As a bonus, the bus stop of the bus to the airport is in a couple of minutes walking distance. The hotel had a nice Scandinavian atmosphere. I liked the fact that they basically had separate bathrooms, so you were able to take a shower in total privacy. But what most strikes me is how clean everything was. Made me kind of embarrassed for my own home.
