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.

I really enjoyed the night I spent there, the staff is extremely helpful and suggest some nice places to go. Everything was clean and the hostel wasn't noisy at all, like some I've been to before. Close to the center and the bus station, available towels, bar where we can buy food and drinks, I have no complain and I highly recommend! Keep on the good work and I hope to visit again soon!

It has a great location, but I was expecting more in terms of atmosphere. Maybe it's because of the weather, but was not as fun as expected.

What a great hostel. Things that make it great; Cages (security), well informed staff who actively create atmosphere and keep the place clean and of course good wifi. Owner is also laid back and understands travellers. Great for solo travellers or groups; they offer many activities and cheap cheap beer during happy hour. Have already recommended to people.

Guys, you are the best! To put it simple, the Squirrel is a hostel that i compare every other hostel to (must say, not many are good enough to be up to your standard!) Crazy (?)russians running and shouting in the corridor did give me a fright this time, though.

Only small complaint is the kitchen which could be bigger and better equipped. It's impossible to cook elaborate dishes there. But the atmosphere is very good and the rooms big enough and quiet, so I would definitely stay here again

This hostel is pretty awesome. It's in a great location, really close to the old town and bus station. Most of the staff are really helpful & friendly. It has great security, which it turns out you really need in Riga (who knew Riga was quite that dodgy?!). They offer great trips, too, just make sure to sign up early as not to miss out!
