Great location, but staff isn't that involved in their job. Plus, showers are not that practical, but it's cheap and location is quite nice so it os okay for a few days.


Very good location short distance to Old Town and Riga Centre. Room was nice and clean. Little bit noisy from the cars in the morning but ok enough. The only thing was that the staff could be a little bit more friendly try to smile and welcome you more when you come and go. But else I realy enjoied stayed 3 days there total good value for the money.


The room size was good but it was difficult sharing 2 electric sockets between 10 people who wanted to charge cameras and phones for the day ahead


Great stay. Fantastic location and bed is comfy. Towel is is provided. Only annoying thing is there is no hob and the showes are the ones where you have to hold a button down

the beds are really not comfy! atmosphere is not really good - you dont really want to hang out there. from what i've seen in other hostels, this one is not really to recommend. location is good, but it's loud. only good thing - it's cheap.


The rooms are clean but not the toilets. You get what you pay for !


No lockers in the room and no luggage storage for the last day! Storing at bus station was not expensive but still... Staff was friendly and hostel had good value for money. NOT a party hostel! There were lot of children and old people.

It's probably better to add a euro or two and get some better experience. although it's not bad. (just not good)


Everything was Perfect! :D


I didn't like that lockers had to be paid for (5 euro), it also couldn't fit my laptop. Otherwise I think you get what you pay for here


Very good location and price. The only bad thing : the atmosphere is dead, the staff don't speak english very well and is not friendly. But we spent good nights there.


It was ok. You had to hold the showers on which is the most frustrating thing ever especially since I had a broken hand! The dorm door was never locked and there were no safes in the rooms. Older staff were a bit rude and unhelpful. Need curtains in dorms.


Great place, but take care of your things. Someone took my cellphone when I was staying there. But after that... the place is nice, they give you free tea, but there is no place to cook, just the microwave. Its located next to everything! If you are going to stay for a few days for sightseeing, its a great option. But if you are going to stay for a week... take care of your stuff.


The hostel has standard rooms, towels included is a nice extra. Good location; minutes walk from the Old Town, close to tram/bus stop. Atmosphere is less, but it is easy to walk to other hostels to do activities with them. Total good value for money, you pay for a bed with good location.


Good bed, shared bathroom and kitchen (fridge and micro-wave). Very close to station and old city. Nice staff. Very good low-budget.


A descent hostel. The staff were very kind. But there was not a stove in the kitchen.
