    I love this place. The staff is excellent and super chill. You will feel at home within minutes. It is located at the edge of the Old Town, so the mayor tourist-shots are within walking distance. The Riga Old Town Hostel is a very memorable spot. The ground floor and the 1st floor are a bar, which is open for public. Above that is the hostel. You kinda live in the bar, which became our living room. The crowd is mainly consisted of travelers and locals, which makes it a good place to connect.

    The location was perfect, right next to the bus station and close to the city. The staff was extremely nice and helped me with everything I needed. The building itself is also very nice and up kept with a modern kitchen and sturdy beds. Nothing to complain about.

    A friend and myself were on a short vacation to Latvia and didn't want to spend a lot for a room since we are touring the city for most of the day anyway. We just want clean place to stay with comfortable beds. We were initially booked to stay here, but when we arrived the hot water went out so they booked us with their sister hostel the Naughty Squirrel. No complaints here since I would rather be at a place with hot water for my showers. Highly recommend either hostels with great locations.

    Very nice place with great atmosphere. Arrived on the night of a staff party and was welcomed with the taste of their traditional Latvian Black Balsam. Very close to sights and mall/food. Staff was very friendly, gave suggestions for popular food places etc. Only complaint is that i arrived late one night and there was nobody to answer the door, so i had to speak to the people at the affiliate bar that had to contact staff to let me in. Also, 2 euro beers during happy hour was nice.

    Booked for this Hostel but stayed in the Wicked Weasel instead (just next door). Everything was nice, apart from the heating which wasn't working properly so the room was quite cold (on the last night the staff got another heater which helped). Showers are nice and beds are comfy. Staff is helpful and jolly and despite not having breakfast, the kitchen is equipped with everything, plus you can have coffee and tea.
