    I was pretty impressed with this place. I will say the reviews do fluctuate. The staff was SUPER friendly and the location is nearby lots of places. The bedrooms were clean and the restrooms on third floor were as well. The ones on the second are open to the public so not those as much. Very well kept place for being a pub and would definitely stay again. Do note that if you stay on the weekends you won’t get much sleep but during the week it’s not an issue.

    I stayed for one night because I had a connecting flight with 22 hours of waiting time in Riga. The location was great, everything I should see in riga was in walking distance. I had great time. Staff were really friendly, i was offered welcoming beer and morning coffee for free.

    Everything you want from the staff. Super friendly, informative and excellent bar maids. Shoutout to RiRi and Elizabeth! The most visited bar in Riga, 20stairs away from your bed. Breakfast drink and checkin drink free. I stayed Sat-Tuesday the party and music goes on till 2/3am then they provide a “lock in” for the Hostel patrons! Good black out blinds for the 4am sunrise. Would stay and visit again!

    Excellent hostel. As it says don’t go if you’re after a early night. But it’s ran brilliantly and is very clean. This was the last of 5 countries we did and was by far the best

    Good place, good location, good cleanliness. The beds are very comfortable too. The only problem is the noise during the night. There is a pub on the 1st floor.. so if you really need to rest during the night it’s not the best option.

    This hostel is located in an amazing location, close to bars and restaurants. Very good deal for the price. However, being that the hostel is a functioning bar open to the public, it was extremely loud until 2am at the earliest. If you’re someone who values a good night’s sleep, do not stay here. Also the entire hostel, not just the first two floors (bar) reeked of beer. Really wakes you up in the morning. But if you want party, this is your spot. Staff was very friendly.

    Stayed here as a group of 7 English university friends and had a great time. Friendly staff, great 24/7 bar and a free beer/coffee/tea/soft drink each morning. Great value for money.

    Doesnt have a common room /kitchen. So the only place where you can socialize is the bar downstairs which never had anyone from the hostel while I was there for the weekend. I literally went around the pub seating to find someone with a hostel wristband and didnt find anyone. The staff were great, but your ability to socialize is limited because of this setup. I would recommend Naughty Squirrels if you wanna meet other travelers from your hostel
