Great hostel. It is a party hostel. Great atmosphere to meet people and you can hang out drinking a night here if you want but it might be loud sometimes because of that. Free fooseball. Great location and nice beds.

Great, fun hostel that was centrally located. The pub crawls were a good time as well as the shooting trip! The staff is very nice. The only bad thing is there's mostly guys in the hostel, but I think that's just Riga. Def seems like the best hostel in town. The bar and common area are great for meeting people.

All very good! Little bit pricier than the competition but that is understandable.

The most comfortable hostel bunk bed I've ever slept in! The staff is amazing and my four bed dorm was one of the nicest hostel rooms I've stayed in. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Riga!

I loved this hostel! So clean, great atmosphere and the staff were amazing! Especially the wonderful Lauren :) And Ruti was always good for a 3am chat! There were fun things to do each day and and the staff worked hard to make sure everyone was having fun. I really felt part of the family there was so sad to leave

The hostel is situated in the middle of the old city, near to everything. The rooms were ok, but smelled a little bit strange Especeially the bathrooms need a better aeration. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. Inside the hostel there is kitchen where you can make coffee or tee. There is also a nice common area where you can meet other people. A lock is needed for the lockers (a kind box under the bett)

The Naughty Squirrel is without a doubt the best hostel I've stayed in in Europe. The facilities are great: spacious rooms, lockers, two plug sockets and a reading light each, clean showers. But the winning factor is the staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful :) Would definitely recommend!

Loved this place, only downside was that we couldn't stay longer. The staff were outstanding and withstood a barrage of odd questions and requests. Room was great and bathrooms were readily available. Unfortunately we were unable to continue the tradition of room 38 but there is always next time. If you don't book this hostel you should slap yourself silly then take a good hard look in the mirror!

Definitely a place where you can easily meet people. Good location and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. You also get a free shot of their national liquor upon arrival (pretty cool!) and there is a bar and cooler with water, juice, beer, and other drinks to purchase downstairs 24-7. The only annoying thing was that there is no elevator (I had heavy luggage) but rooms aren't too much of a walk upstairs (only one or two flights of stairs) Would definitely stay again!
