Property Description

The Doma Hostel is a family owned hostel with the best location available in Riga center, the Old Town, facing Riga Town Hall and Town Hall square. Our family has over 6 years experience in providing the best service for our guests.
In January, 2013 we have moved to completely new building, few steps away from the old one. We have upgraded the new hostel with completely new showers, WCs and complete reconstruction was ended in March, 2013. Now hostel is fitted with new beds, bedclothes and other interesting stuff.

The hostel got its name because of its location in the very centre of Riga, near to the most historic place - the Doma square (13th century).

The hostel is equipped with video surveillance and the front doors are closed for outsiders to guarantee the safety of our guests. Even the interior of our hostel is designed to make you feel like you are at home where you can have a relaxing time from impressions of your day.

The history of the building in Mazā Jaunavu iela 8 (8 Little Virgins street) extends from 1524, when the owner was H.Humpel, but the building was finished in year 1766 as an Ebels warehouse. In year 1878 there are data about the reconstruction project by K. A. Beck and architect R. Pflug. The most important value of the building is the rooftop wooden structures in the attic, which has remained since the first half of 18th century. Nowadays every room is with a little-bit different design, mostly from originally restored wood.

It is cozy in the premises of our hotel and each client can enjoy an individual approach. There are 11 rooms in 4 floors. In every floor there is a kitchen, many showers, WCs and a lounge. We can accommodate up to 80 people, arranging 4 additional beds with comfortable foldaway beds for 6-8 EUR.

You are also welcome to use our free Internet and each floor is fitted with a strongbox and you can use your own computer in every room with a WiFi.

It is easy to come to us either by car or by bus. And it is one of the very few places where you can park your bus in the nearby parking lot. Price for 1 big bus 20 EUR/night.

    I stayed in the twelve bed mixed dorm for one night. The location of the hostel is the best part, which is right in Riga’s Old Town! What surprised me was that I wasn’t given a key; when I asked for one, I was given a swipe magnet for the downstairs door of the building. It is also worth noting that there are no lockers. The door to the hostel is always open, and the door to the dorm likewise. I got the impression that common area and kitchen are more for the staff than for the guests.

    Good location, but extremely cramped rooms and common area. Too many bunk beds in a small room, few sockets for phone charging, and too many empty chairs lying around small common room. With loud Latvian or Russian TV always turned on, cramps on the atmosphere.

    Effectively somebodies flat/sitting room. The owners were cooking right next to where we showered and there was mess everywhere in reception. They left their dirty plates on the side next to where we brushed our teeth. Bedroom wasn’t overly clean and the towels ‘provided’ were literally hand towels. We kept trying to pay throughout our stay, only to be told to pay at the end. On final night we returned to our room only for three large men to threaten us for the money. DONT STAY AT DOMA - RUBBISH

    Horrible. Two positives are the staff is friendly and the location is great. Other than that it isn’t worth your time. Beds are horrible, no hot water, not great facilities. I’ve stayed at hostels all over Europe and even been to Riga more than a dozen times and this is the worst overall hostel I’ve ever experienced.

    TERRIBLE!!! Bedbugs biting me every night. The old lady boss who lives there was REALLY rude, demanding and inconsiderate. She got angry at me when i tried to cook breakfast on the stove next to her while she was cooking. She told me to wait so she has space... The kitchen rangehood does not work. No room lockers. Front apartment door is often not locked. So anyone can enter at night and steel your stuff or do whatever to you...!
