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 :)

    Ten points from ten is not enough. Really. Helpful and friendly staff, cleanliness, good equipped kitchen, comfortable shared space, and many other pleasant things. You can buy good tapped beer on the bar and start conversation with other travellers, however this conversation don't disturb resting people in rooms on upper floors especially at late evening. There is historical centre, groccerries, train station, airport bus stop, a lot of reataurants and pubs nearby.

    Excellent hostel in a prime location. Right in the heart of Old Town and a 4 minute walk from the bus station. All the staff were delightful. They provided excellent recommendations for things to do and attractions to see. Hostel was immaculately clean and facilities were nice. Free welcome beer upon arrival was a nice touch. All rooms lock automatically and must be opened with a key card so very secure. 24 hour reception staff. 10/10 would recommend.

    Really helpful and friendly staff. The facilities were ideal for what we needed. Love the showers. Other guests were sociable and friendly making the hostel a nice environment to relax and recover in from the very heavy bar crawl. If I’m ever back in Riga, I’ll look this place up straight away.

    On our trip of 7 countries, this was by far the best hostel we stayed in. Great location, really close to the bus station and central market and the old town. Next to the Aussie bar, which held great events. The staff were very helpful and welcoming with a welcome beer and lots of information and events to join. We stayed in a double room which had a enormous bed, very comfortable and clean. Really nice facilities including a well equipped kitchen and balcony. Nice place to stay and meet people.

    Overall a very good hostel. Quality beds, that are sturdy and make no noise. Excellent kitchen that can be used. The only problem is lack of ventilation in the rooms. Due to the loud aussie bar downstairs, the windows can not be opened during the night. This means the air in the rather small dorm rooms runs out.
