We love this Hostel!

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.

    Fantastic hostel - truly could not have asked for a better place to stay on my first solo trip. The staff were welcoming, the other people were welcoming and the atmosphere on a weekend was great.

    Security is great. Key card access required at every point and large lockers in rooms. Atmosphere is great with its own private little bar. One of the cleanest hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Well equipped kitchen and multiple communal areas. Staff are fantastic - in particular Paula and Asnate. Location is perfect - right in the old town with supermarkets, cafes and restaurants all within a minutes walk. Great value for money, would strongly recommend this hostel and would love to stay here again.

    You get a lock box but unfortunately my lock didn't fit. Beds are pretty comfy, you get your own private Power Point and light. Happy hour is fun and the hostel staff are really easy to talk to

    Really good location in the old town with a range of bars only minutes away. Clean, comfortable beds with sockets and privacy curtains. Showers and facilities were good and clean. Despite being a little quiet, still made a few friends in the common area with whom I had a couple of great nights out. Really good hostel, highly recommended.

    Great atmosphere, easy to meet people. Staff half was brilliant, the other a bit not, but that's everywhere. I left my cap on my bed and closed the curtain, came back some hours later and it was gone, watch your stuff here! Overall, recommend, I had been here some years ago. Pub crawl recommend too!

    It wasn't very busy when I was here so it felt very big and empty , but I still found people to go out with. The staff were friendly and informative and all of the facilities were brilliant. Riga is lovely too!!

    Comfortable rooms/beds with curtains, lights and power sockets. Good showers. Quiet hotel with no activities but it was during the week so not a lot of atmosphere.

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
