Naughty Squirrel is a good example that how a hostel has to be, very friendly people trying to connect travellers to make their stay the best possible experience, very well located and excellent value for money. So happy!
5 girls late 20's. We really enjoyed our stay. Very safe and secure and excellent location. Would definitely recommend.
Comfiest beds ever, helpful and kind staff, great atmosphere. Thanks guys :)
Pretty sure this is THE best hostel I have ever stayed at! If you are looking for fun and a good time then stay here!! Staff are unreal (randomly bringing out free shots on the regular and very helpful), location is the best you can ask for and the rooms and facilities are second to none! I don't really have a bad or slightly negative thing to say about this hostel really, light and power socket in every bed, bathrooms are cleaned multiple times a day, in house bar is super cheap!
It was a pleasent uncomplicated stay at NSB :) Staff is helpfull and its clean!

Good atmosphere at any time of the day. Security is the best I've seen at a hostel.
This hostel was extremely well operated and managed. There were a few nights when it was a little loud in the place, but it's a hostel. You are sharing space with other people. In general, though, my stay was great. Staff were kind and extremely responsive to guest needs and queries. The rooms are well organized with locking bins for your belongings, comfy beds, privacy curtains, outlets at every bunk. Also, this place was absurdly clean. They cleaned top to bottom every day. Highly recommended.
I really liked this hostel,this was my third time there.Remarkably friendly and helpful staff,excellent room. I definitely had a good night's sleep!
Almost everything was great. Receptionist was really helpful. Place prepared like real hostel not like apartment house. Only if you are not a party guy place can be kinda uncomfortable at nights. Common room and street of the hostel are a little bit noisy at midnight because of night club and cafe's. Recomended..
A hostel for party. If u want to sleep well, don't come. For party and get drunk, yes.
It was a great stay for us! The only thing was: there is not really a place to just brush your teeth.We did this in the toilet. Only the shower with toilet was really good for this. Not a big point though!

The staff make this place what it is, very friendly and helpful. Location is great, we unfortunately had some road works going on whilst we were there but not the hostels fault.
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Clean, secure, great features (eg light, charger and curtain for each bunk) and great common areas to meet people before heading out. Really close to the train and bus stations too, and there was always someone cleaning the shower/toilet. I have stayed at a lot of hostels and I couldn't fault this one, great job guys!
Simply an amazing hostel with wonderful staff; will definitely recommend and return
Great hostel but mainly for younger people, meaning 18-25. We're both 30 and although we like to think of ourselves as still being quite "hip" we did notice that this hostel was primarily geared toward very young people coming to Riga to have all-nighters. The common areas were really loud and not somewhere to relax but rather a "holding area" before heading to the bars. There's nothing wrong with that, if that's what you're looking for, but a more mature crowd might want to look elsewhere.
Lads hostel - met some cool people. Location was good but some of the staff weren't very accommodating. Despite this, it had a good party vibe!
Great hostel, excellent atmosphere, would definitively come back :)
