It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

The Naughty Squirrel Backpackers receives consistently high ratings and was rated the best in Latvia and Eastern Europe at the 2011 and 2010 Hoscars, and it's no wonder. This hostel features tons of interesting activities like AK47-shooting and husky dog-sledding. It's also located right in Old Town, five minutes' walk from the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia and St Peter's Church and a very short stroll from most of Riga's other great sights. We like that they also offer under-bed storage, good security and free towels and sheets.

The Naughty Squirrel Backpackers Hostel says

We're in the Old Town, just two minutes from the central market, St Peter's, Livu Square, the Occupation Museum and the Freedom Monument. I particularly recommend heading to Ala Folk Klub; it has amazing food for low prices and all the best local beers on tap.
I think what really puts us ahead of the rest, though, is our excellent customer service. We have cleaners working almost 24hrs a day and we have a great mix of party and chill here so our hostel is suited to a wide audience. For fun we have adrenalin tours, board games, happy hour, a foosball table, card games, DVDs and more. Most guests here are aged 20 to 35 but we're open to all age groups, although we don't allow school groups or stag parties. Jarrod, Manager
