Nice hostel, great people, spotless bathroom and and a lively common area. We got some misleading information on booking a tour in advance, but apart from that we have no remarks.

I had a fantastic time here, literally 5 minutes walk to the bus station and the airport shuttle busses drop off 30 seconds away. A cheap happy hour and right on the doorstep all all the best Riga nightlife. Only reason I'm marking down is because the mains water went off for a while (I think it was a localised area fault and nothing to do with the hostel, but still) and the Internet went off for a while but was remedied with a secondary connection. Top quality staff. Do the pub crawl. Thanks!

One of the (if not THE) best hostel we've stayed in over the years. The room was very big, nice and clean. The hostel itself is a bit small, but that's not a bad thing at all. It's in a quiet neighbourhood, but still in the middle of all the action. But the best part of this hostel was the people working there! Anita, Ruta and all the others were always friendly and in for some jokes, and Nuno was always in for a drink or a chat. Don't change!

Very much enjoyed my stay!! The staff is super friendly and chatty, the common room is the perfect size for chilling and meeting others. Hostel is very nicely located in the city center but is quiet at night. They also offers great activities, and you get to try a free shot of black balsam when you check in

Perfect as usual, great staff, great location, great friendly atmosphere, spotlessly clean, the only things missing are an elevator and maybe a smoking terrace :)

Doubtlessly a hostel how you imagine it.

Loved my stay here, staff were all awesome, great location (though it's pretty hard to go wrong with that in the Old Town), and plenty of people around even midweek in low season! Oh and Riga's a pretty cool place too!

The staff were really nice and went above and beyond to make or stay enjoyable. We had a private room which was very comfortable and spacious. This is definitely one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in and I highly recommend.
