Decent enough place

View Property Reply

Hello! Next time when you stay in social backpackers hostel try to socialize with guests and Hostel staff, it was pretty much impossible to make you interested to see things in Riga or outside of Riga. We organized events almost every night when you were here, you didn't join any of them.. Sometimes its really hard to deal with people who prefer endless wifi in hostel 24/7, instead of enjoying the city with nice people & gain a new experience.. Thats what traveling is about! Take care!

Hostel is modern which is Good. But they are always trying to save money by switching the air conditioning off. Kitchen is missing tea and sugar also and needs more utensils.

We are surprised, that a guest who made a mess himself and disturbed others, should criticize us?!

A lot of long termers, lifers living there, guy in my room got up early to go to work every day which woke me up and turned the lights out at 10 in the evening to go to sleep which was annoying. Also there is a main road outside where you can here the cars which can make it difficult to sleep if you are a sensitive sleeper. No free tea or coffee after 12. Hostel has a nice garden to sit in, and staff will help you.

View Property Reply

Thanks for your review. We're glad you found the team helpful and the garden area nice to hang around in. I'm so sorry that you were woken up by your room-mates. This happens sometimes when you're in a dormitory, unfortunately, whether you're sharing with long-termers, or 'weekenders'. We wished you would have communicated the issue with us when you extended your stay from 2 days to a further seven nights. We would have either changed your room or asked your room mate to be more considerate. Usually when guests extend their stays, it's an indirect way of telling us they're happy here. We've never really had any negative feedback about 'no free tea/coffee after 12,' as since breakfast is not included in the room type, guest usually express their gratitude that there's even any free coffee offered at all....

It was not my first time in this hostel, and for sure not the last. A good place to stay in the centre of Kiev, where the staff help you with all things you need and make you feel at home.

Some of the staff where quite rude and unfriendly. Not very welcoming place. Seems to be some long term Ukrainian workers who stay there. Also trying to get back into the hostel can be quite difficult, many times I stood outside and had to wait 15 mins or more before somebody would answer the door.

Centrally located, cheap with lots of fun, and an a/c that sets standards. I loved it, especially the free pub crawl with the German owner.

Dear Guest, sorry for the inconvenience, but it occoured that the rat you saw is our neighbour's fancy rat - domestic rat. We already asked our neighbour for taking more care of his pet. We still hope that you enjoyed staying in our Hostel and hopefully see you next time. Hostel Flamingo Team
