One of the best facilities for a hostel I have ever stayed in! Good firm bunk beds with curtains and personal lights plus you get your own towel. Plenty of bathrooms per floor. Very social common room with bar and dining area which makes it super easy to meet fellow travellers. The staff are friendly and the most helpful I’ve had in the Baltic region. Overall I would rate it as one of the best hostels in Europe I have been too.

Great place to stay, very easy to socialise and hang around, nice staff, super clean, free towel provided (which is really great cause it means you don't need to pack your own wet towel in your backpack the day you leave) and the beds were super modern (with a light and power point and even a curtain to have a lil privacy). Probably one of the best hostels I ever stayed. Location is also great, inside the old town, 5 minutes from the main bus station and 7 minutes from the train station.

Superb hostel. We stayed in a double room and it was basically a hotel room in a hostel. The Staff were really nice and friendly and contributed to a relaxed, fun and sociable atmosphere. There was a tiny delay with our room so they insisted on giving us a free beer! Great hostel. Book it.

Good nightly entertainment, easy to meet other travellers, great social spaces. Manages to get that difficult balance right of being a party place if you want it to be or chilled out if you wanted a quiet night in.

One of the best hostels I've ever been. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice chilling areas, good atmosphere. Maybe the cleanest hostel I've seen, they r cleaning the whole day, especially the bathrooms if which there are a lot and enough for everyone. They are organizing evening and night activities every day for cheap prices.

The Naughty Squirrel is a fantastic hostel! No doubt the second best hostel in the baltics after The Monks Bunk! :D

Bathroom could have been more clean, and a small cupboard would also be nice in the room.

Great hostel with very friendly staff in a great central location. Everything is slightly less party-focussed than in some hostels, but that's not to mean that there's nothing going on of course! The excellent security has it's downside, however, it means that there is a slightly less open atmosphere in the hostel than in some of the other places i visited in the baltics.

You could tell the moment that you walked in that this was a good hostel and indeed it did not disappoint. More expensive than most but the rooms were clean and the beds really comfy. Own bar with happy hour was a nice addition too.

Excellent choice! Ranked as one of the very best hostels in Europe and for good reason. Great location. Clean rooms and toilets. Very social environment. 24 hr reception that go out of their way to help you. And they're all cute too. Highly recommend this place.

This is by far the more fun hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Next time i go to Riga I will stay here. I was also in another hostel and is bad by comparison with this one

Wonderful hostel in the heart of Riga. Location could not be any better. Friendly staff and super clean rooms and showers. Unfortunately no breakfast provided, but lots of little cafés close by. Had a great time! Definitely recommended!

Really good hostel, Nunus makes this hostel what it is! Great atmosphere when you join the pub crawl or even if you just decide to have a seat in the common room. The showers and toilets were good, plenty of them around. Will stay here again if I am in the area

The common room here is a great place to meet travelers, play music, have a beer and relax. With the crazy Riga nightlife, this is a huge benefit to travelers. This might be the best hostel I've ever stayed at and it set the standard for every hostel I've been to since. Staff were friendly and helpful and fun to talk to. The bar and kitchen are great and we made good use of them. They have the most comfortable hostel beds I've ever slept in and the facilities were good and clean. Great job!
