For late twenties travelers, this can be a bit of a party hostel. Staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and key card secured. Great location!

We really enjoyed our stay at the naughty squirrel! The rooms were spacious and the showers were always clean, as well as the kitchen. The common room was quite nice as well, everybody met there before the pub crawl (which I strongly recommend ;-) ). The staff was always very friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommend this hostel.

High recommendations to Naughty Squirrel! It was a pleasure staying in your hostel! Staff was super friendly and the location at the Old Town was perfect. Definitely staying here next time we're in Riga.

More than just a bed - this hostel always had something going on. Everyone was friendly, and I especially loved that they let me check in early, and let me hang out and wait for my night bus after I checked out.

Excellent hostel, centrally located in the old town, within walking distance of everything, including major sights, the bus station and the train station. Staff was superb, always doing their best to ensure the well-being of their guests. Hostel was always clean, literally everytime I walked to my room I saw one of the staff members working on something. Various events and activities daily, like tours etc, and pubcrawls in the weekend. They didn't disappoint! Best hostel in Riga!

No secure storage in rooms available. Lots of doors propped open. Was a serious problem and not one the staff seemed to understand. Take the minimum belongs and a bottle of vodka and you'll have a great time.

Filled to the brim with character and located in the colorful old town - the Naughty Squirrel represents the very best Riga has to offer. Welcoming, secure, clean and above all fun, it personifies the city itself.
