Property Description

The flat is located in a quiet residential courtyard, above the former location of the legendary rebellious Chomsky Bar. It is situated in the oldest building on the block, built sometime at the end of the 1800s. The 3-room apartment provides lots of privacy and a sense of feeling at home. The premises is freshly renovated and the interior was designed by two rising stars of the Latvian arts scene, who you can occasionally meet at neighborhood bars. Located nearby, the bar itself with its rough edged look and quality prices bring in a fair mix of the more artistic and open minded side of society.

    Was basically an apartment that is being used as a hostel, but was clean, and in a good location with all necessary facilities. Very hard to find, It's an old wooden door under some scaffolding, no signs up to indicate, you need to either call to get up or have the correct time of your arrival put on hostel world.

    I arrived by myself at 7 in the evening, which apparently was a time the hostel owner couldn’t let me in. Had trouble finding the hostel even with the correct address, since it’s quite hidden on a corridor on th second floor of the house. There was no one in the flat. I would recommend it if you’re looking for something quiet. I was however looking for a place with atmosphere and people and was thus disappointed. No staff, no reception. Maybe better during another season.

    If you can don't go to this place. It is not a hostel it an old apartment used as hostel. I booked for 1 night and then I went to this place. It took 20 mins to find this place. There is no calling bell or anything to get in. I waited for half an hour in the street, no one showed up. Then I tried to find the phone number and called them, no one is picking up. After sometime I mailed them that I am infront of the residence. Half an hour later they messeged we can't let you in the residence.
