One of the best hostels worldwide with very high standards. Good location, big common room/kitchen/bar. Spacious dorms and comfy beds. Fast and reliable wifi. It is party-oriented though so you might hear a little noise from the street.

In freezing cold December, Riga might not be some peoples first choice of destination. But the cosy, friendly atmosphere at the Naughty Squirrel certainly makes up for the climate outside. No extra charge for bedding, towels etc and you are made to feel extremely welcome throughout your stay by the lovely team. I met all staff and their are no weak links. Manageress is lovely and I trust she will spoil her awesome team with a great staff night out to celebrate xmas! Thank you all! 10/10 x

This hostel has an excellent location, right in Old Town, but only a 5 minute walk from the bus/train station. Good size common areas with a 24hr bar at reception. Kitchen is quite small, but still usable. Big lockers under the beds made it easy to keep your belongings safe. Bathrooms were always clean. The hostel offers lots of activities from bobsledding to shooting. And the girls on reception were lovely. I would definitely recommend staying here.

I loved my stay here and was so happy that I recommended it to a traveller I met in Vilnius. The staff (particularly Anita) were so warm and friendly and made you feel at home. ALA Folkklub was the beat recommendation ever! Loved the shot of Black Balsam on arrival. My 4-bed dorm was colourful and clean. Riga is a lovely place and I can't wait to go back in the summer!

We stayed in a private double room with ensuite and it was perfect. The staff were awesome and so friendly, that we felt like we'd been staying at the hostel for weeks about 10 minutes after we arrived. There are 3 communal areas for people to socialise in, including a bar/kitchen area. Activities that can be booked are clearly marked on expertly decorated , huge whiteboards in the reception (main hang out) area and the staff are very knowledgable about each activity on offer.
