    Convenient location above McDonalds, 10min walk from bus station & city centre. Friendly staff present all day, making for a social environment. Homely lounge room with kitchen facilities, 4 showers but only 2 toilets. No shoes policy means it can be a little smelly at reception where shoes are stored. Good wifi & light & electric plug next to each bed. Only issue was that it was very hot in the 10 bed dorm & quite warm throughout whole hostel, more fans would help in summer.

    Security gets a deduction because the host asked us whether we should get one or two keys. We chose one and regretted it. giving out a key per tenant should be standard, without suggestive questioning. Vfm gets a deduction because cheaper than 20 a night should be possible in a lower wage country. Facilities gets deduction because the washstands are in a completely public hallway and some privacy is preferable. The atmosphere here is perfect. It's way better than I suggest here. Top notch.

    Beautiful comfortable hostel in a great location. Good waffles and the staff were all great, with heaps of good recommendations and info. When i was there it was very quiet so no real atmosphere but that's not the fault of the hostel! Very cozy and can see the social area would be great if there were more people

    It's a great place to stay when there's a good number of guests in the hostel. Then it feels very homely and sociable. But it was not so great when there were just a handful of people who stay for just 1 night on transit while the staff was hiding away in the office, lethargically watching tv shows laying on the sofa in the common room, or talking Latvian to their friends. The lockers, the toilets and the common room furniture could use an upgrade. All in all it was a very mixed experience.
