Property Description

The Wicked Weasel is extremely easy to get to from all the major transport hubs. Riga Bus Station and the Riga International Airport bus stop are less then a 3 minute stroll, the Railway Station is within 5 minutes and the ferry terminal is a short tram ride away.

Upon arrival you will be given a welcome beer, while we answer all your questions about what you want to see and do during your stay, so that you get the most out of it. We offer a variety of tours, including shooting an AK, winter bobsled, pub crawls, kayaking in the canal, walking tours and lots more.

To relax there is a beautiful outdoor terrace, with summer BBQ area, where you can sit for a coffee or beer while planning your day. There's also plenty of space and things to do inside for the colder months, with a lounge, bar, board games and our favorite winter sport - foosball. We dare you to challenge our in-house champion. This area is open 24/7, so you can always grab a beer or some information from our team.

Riga's central market and shopping center are a 2 ½ minute walk. We have a full kitchen where you can cook like a gourmet chef or a street side vendor, but we also know plenty of places around town where you can grab a cheap affordable bite to eat, just ask us and we will point you in the right direction.

In the dorm rooms you will find bunk beds that are very solid and do not move. Each one comes fully made with fresh linen, including a large towel, and are equipped with an individual reading light, 2 power outlets and an under-bed security locker.

Our private double rooms all have a comfortable king size mattress and fresh linen with extra pillows for a great night's sleep.

Close to all the rooms are showers with continuous hot water, rain shower heads and plenty of space. The whole hostel is cleaned throughout the day and evening multiple times by our dedicated cleaning team.

The checkout time is 12pm, but you are more then welcome to hang around for the remainder of the day and store your luggage for free until your plane, train, bus, hot air balloon or ferry leaves.

We hope to see you in Riga soon, safe travels :)

    This hostel is definitely the best we've ever visited. Superb location, squeaky-clean, brand-spanking new facilities, and perhaps the most important: friendly staff who made us feel welcomed, and who made it easy to join in on social activities. During our stay the hostel bar was suffering from a heavy case of tequila deficiency, but it still managed to bring out the wicked weasels in us! 10/10 would recommend 👌

    Great hostel, perfect location, amazing showers and awesome staff. Only downside, it would be nice that people wouldn't smoke on the balcony as the smell drifts into the social area, and I didn't want to use the balcony because it smelt like old cigarettes. Perhaps smoke in the street rather than hostel premises. Apart from that and loud snorer in room on night 3, it was very good.

    The hostel was in a perfect location on the edge of the old town, within 2 minutes' walk of the direct bus to the airport. Within easy walking distance of every major attraction but at the same time quiet and safe. The interior is very modern and well designed. The facilities are very clean and the staff friendly. You get a welcome drink and fresh towels with no extra charge. The only thing that could be improved is the addition of a mirror in the rooms.

    This is a very very good hostel. Located in the old town, also close to the station. Showers and toilets are frequently cleaned. The kitchen has everything you need. In the room, the bed is very comfortable. Just a couple of things to make this hostel perfect, I would suggest a couple of wall hangers and a mirror in the room. If back in Riga, I won't hesitate, I'll fo for Wicked Weasel Hostel.

    Very good location. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Welcome beer. Nice terrace. Clean toilets and showers. Good soundproofing in the rooms. Comfortable beds and common areas. Only suggestions would be to add hooks somewhere in the rooms to hang wet towels and adding a nightstand lamp, as the only light source in the room was a harsh ceiling lamp
