The Naughty Squirrel is by far the best hostel I have ever been too! There is something special that isn't just the excellent facilities, awesome tours and comfy beds, they go out of their way to be friendly and helpful, the owner Ben and the staff have put a lot of passion, time and work into creating a truly awesome experience while visiting the great city of Latvia. To the 'Squirrel' staff Margarita, Wendy, Sunny, Elena and Ruta....Cheers, I will be back again!! Pete AKA 'Jack Sparrow'

The bobsled is a must. So much fun. If only they had more power points in the room, But other than that hostel was excellent.

The best hostel I've ever stayed at. Staff were incredible with excellent knowledge of the city and responded to everyone's individual queries. Location was very central. Atmosphere was what made the place incredible - great communal areas encouraged people to come together and lots of organised events which brought everyone together.

I stayed at the Naughty Squirrel for a couple of days with my friend and we had a great time. Although we spent most of our time out of the hostel, it was always great to come back to a place which felt like home. On our last day, we both came down with food poisoning and were forced to stay an extra 4 nights. During these extra days, the staff cared for us as if we were family. They brought us tea, extra blankets and would regularly check on us to make sure we were OK. Thank you so much!

Being in a excellent location directly in old town Riga, the Naughty Squirrel Backpackers is a perfect place to stay. The staff is very helpful and it's really clean and great value for money.

Great! Place where I immediately felt welcome. Maybe also because of the welcome shot ;-) Free kicker and helpful staff included. And we could leave our luggage there until the mid of the next night as our bus left at 2:30 am! I would go for it again!

The staff was wonderful--they all made me feel right at home! In particular, Margarita deserves a shout out!! She welcomed me my first night and was so helpful. She pulled out a map and marked all the places I needed to see even though I was only going to be there in such a short time. Her recommendations were great!
