Only improvement that could be made would be easier access to plug sockets in rooms/ small shelves or storage by beds. But totally small thing - the hostel is excellent!

Loved this hostel--one of my favorite stays ever. Rooms are clean, staff are awesome, and it's right in the city center.

I'm very satisfied with my stay at the Naughty Squirrel. I needed to have a good night of sleep after a long trip and fortunately I got a room with quiet roommates and not the party people. I appreciated the tidiness of the common places and the nice atmosphere of the hostel. There's someone at the reception all night, the WiFi worked very well for me, although I only tried it around the reception. The kitchen, the bar and the comfy gathering rooms are great! I highly recommend this hostel.

I really enjoyed my time here. The staff was great and the hostel is in a great location. The common area was a good place to relax and meet other travelers. My room had A/C, which was great because of the historical heat wave during my time in Riga. There are plenty of bathrooms, which were all kept very clean. This is definitely the best place to stay in Riga.

Really good atmosphere in common room. Hostel was located next to most of the old town sites. Staff were very helpful with any questions I had.

We thought this was a great hostel - fantastic staff, fun but clearly knowledgeable and in control of the place. Comfortable stay and good security.

Good staff, good recommendations about the city. They promote tour like going to the beach or going to a festival. Very good.

This is one of my favourite hostels I've ever stayed in. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who gave me lots of tips on what was happening in the city during my stay and then I was given a free shot to celebrate my welcome. The rooms were really cosy, modern, clean and secure. There were always activities on for the guests in the hostel so there was a great atmosphere and the location was excellent too - situated right in the centre of Old Town Riga. Would definitely come back!

Naughty Squirrel seems just the right size for a hostel; plently of people to meet but not so many that it gains a hotel-vibe. Evening organised activities were good, some good recommendations and the staff seem to know their stuff.

The hostel is pretty good, the location and facilities are superb and anything in the old town is walking distance. I knew it was a party hostel but nevertheless I wasn't t fond on it. The welcome shot on arrival is cool, but seeing staff members drinking other shots and alcohol with guests doesnt seem very professional.

Great hostel! The staff is very helpful and nice and there's always someone at the counter desk. The only bad point is that the wifi didn't work very well in the bedroom and the kichen was sometimes a little bit too small. The hostel is also very clean and perfectly located! We would surely go back and recommend this hostel!

Definitely too noisy, but thumbs up for the cleaning of the facilities - i have been to many hostels in various countries but i had never seen anyone cleaning the showers etc. more than once a day. Additionally, it was a bit annyong that the key cards refused to work sometimes, so we just managed to open the doors after three tries.
