    Loved staying in this place. The girls who run the hostel are amazing and super lovely and helpful. Really liked the area too. Was a 5-10 min walking into the old town but also had a lot of other cool stuff close to the hostel which I don’t think you would experience if you just stayed in old town. Would definitely stay there again.

    Absolute bargain, especially on a Saturday night during Riga city festival. The room was a good size and had pleasant and interesting travelers in. Staff were friendly enough. Location is a bit of a trek to the old town (20mins to the river), but considering the price not a problem. Good size kitchen and living room area. Only two bathrooms but never had to wait too long

    Great hostel! The 6-bed female dorm is actually two 3-bed rooms connected to each other, so you are max. 3 people in the room (had it to myself a couple nights!). The wooden beds are noisy but they are no bunk beds so that's a major plus. The female dorm gives on the main streets where crazy drivers do races most nights (especially during the weekend) so we had to close the windows, but it wasn't really an issue. There are no lockers in the rooms but many sofas and a table. Super clean hostel!
