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.

    One of the best Hostels I’ve visited, everyone was friendly, the staff was fantastic, and the guests were all good people. Highly recommend if you’re staying in Riga. Everything is close, everything is convenient and everything is clean. Football tournament into the night was super fun, especially since the front desk doubles as a bar. Perfect place to go party and/or relax.

    The wicked weasel hostel was amazing. The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful, the beer is cheap, and the facilities are really nice and clean. It can get a little loud late nights, but its a hostel experience and that's good for you (just bring plugs). The lobby area is a great place to chill and meet people, as well as staff and others are always available to give you tips on what to do around the city. The location is amazing, right near everything you need for a great stay.

    My boyfriend and I both agree that this was the nicest hostel that we have ever stayed in. We were given a free welcome shot of Black Balsam so that was a fun surprise! Towels are provided, the bathrooms were very clean (they even had a waterfall shower), the private rooms were comfortable, and the lounge space was very nice. The front desk doubled as a bar, but it was still a very chill atmosphere. The staff was very helpful and reserved a taxi for us. It felt more like a hotel than a hostel!

    Everything is new and modern and felt super secure. The common space, bar, and kitchen were really great to meet other people and it felt really cozy with all the Christmas decorations and music! The staff is super helpful and there is a ton of info everywhere for activities.

    The location was in a great place being close to the bus and train station. At first it was bit hard to find the location, but if you check the address and names on the doors it will be easier than for me (I used Google Maps which did not show exactly where it is so I walked past it). They offered a welcome shot which was very tasty. The room had a locker which might not fit a bigger luggage but probably 2 hiking back bags would fit. The bed was also equipped with a reading light.

    Very Good

    I had high expectations for this hostel based on reviews. In my opinion it is an OK hostel. Not amazing and not terrible. PROS: Great location, friendly staff, reasonably clean and very hot showers. CONS: Very loud (not due to parties etc, but due to the walls being thin++. Could hear people closing doors and walking throughout the night), bad pillows (i'm all for a thin pillow but I had to fold these in half), and lack of atmosphere / bit of a clinical or sterile feel to the place

    Very Good

    06 Jan 2020
    Nice and the staff were friendly but the whole building was definitely very noisy even if people weren't trying to be... like the walls are so thin you could hear every door shut and so sleeping at night was always interrupted. Location good and facilities ok, best thing was the shower - that was hot and nice. Rooms could be heated better
