Would I recommend this hostel? Absolutely no. The hostel is obviously overbooking and just in a coincident we didn't end up on the street. So instead of a 2-bed-room we had to share with 8 people (mixed dorm). Not all of the staff is speaking English. The bathroom is not clean and when they ran out of toilet paper they put magazines instead for a while... You also have to pay if you want to leave your luggage there. And the bunk bed is moving a lot so you have to watch out to not get sea sick...
Without any doubt this is the best hostel I stayed in so far. It feels more like a home than just a sleeping place. It has such a homely atmosphere, the staff is so nice, everything is really clean and you can always meet some cool people if you hang around in the big common room. I will recommend this hostel to everyone who is coming to Riga!
We really liked this Hostel. We had a 6 person room and it was really large with a table and chairs in the middle. The lockers in the room are big enough and you lock them with your personal card. The facilities are getting cleaned every day. The staff was nice and helped with all our questions. The Wi-Fi doesn't work very well in the rooms. An extra plus for showing "The Sound of Music" every evening to the guests. :) 15 minute distance walk to the city. We would definitely go there again.
The Hostel was good. Every room has their own showers and everything is really clean. We were in the second house which is close to the main house. This house could be more friendly with colours, decoration etc. Also we had to go to the first house to get our breakfast. It isn't a long walk but not the best solution (especially when it's raining and you have to dress up fully to get breakfast). All in all it was a comfortable stay and we would go there again.
This hostel was great, we would definitely go there again. The rooms were ok and you can lock your stuff under your bed. The kitchen has everything you need and the breakfast with cereals and jam was sufficient for us. The staff is very nice and helpful and you can leave your keys at the 24 h-desk. There is a common room where you can watch TV/ DVD's to relax or meet the other guests. There is also free internet and computers. Only the showers turned a little bit too hot.
