when we arrived at the hostel, we were treated with such a great hospitality & friendliness, something that will stay with us. The location of the hostel is superb. It is also not the loudest hostel at all so in the end I had a very good sleep as well.

This is a briliant hostel in the center of 'the old town' of Riga . The staff will take exellent care of you and help you with attractions you should visit while visiting . There are vacilities where you can prepare food or simply make yourself a cup of tea.

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff were awesome and the fellow guests just as much. Nuno's pub crawl is a must do. Legend of a guy.

It's perfect for out-going people. Staff were so friendly. However, Wifi did not work sometimes. There is no lockers. The location is perfect, near almost everything.

Very nice hostel with all furnitures you need. Very kind staff, always trying to help you and organizing activites (every days and night, even off-season). They have beers on draught and the common room is open 24/7. The kitchen is really clean and well-equiped. Great location, in old Riga but near the bus/train station. 5 min by feet from the airport bus station.

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!
