I can say the Baron was a fantastic host, the hostel was very well presented and more amenities than expected. Rooms are large and beds are as expected. Great value for money and would definitely stay again. Thank you

We had a great stay here at Funky Hostel! We (a group of 20 students) arrived late in the evening because of our late flight but we had a warm welcome. We were glad to sleep in comfy beds and warm rooms because the temperatures outside sometimes felt like -18 degrees Celcius. The kitchen is fully equipped and always open...

If you have researched this hostel before staying here then you have heard about the stairs, so know what to expect! For any fit person they are really not an issue. I arrived late to this hostel to an excellent welcome from Alex. He made sure that I knew where everything was, how everything worked, and that I had everything...

If you are looking for a quite and cheap place where to stay that's the one. This hostel doesn't have lift and is located at the top floor, so get ready for some exercise. The guy was very nice he helped me with my luggage at my arrival and even when I left, so kind of him. Breakfast was very...

The Funky Hostel was our favorite accommodations of our entire trip to the Baltic region!!! Alex was amazingly nice and pleasant and really made us feel at home. The entire hostel felt like a home. It was decorated in cute colors and was very clean. The breakfast spread provided more options than we were expecting and it was a treat...

Very familiar atmosphere, good location (short walking distance to old town) and friendly staff. Great price quality option it also includes breakfast in the offer. Its more a house (kitchen, living room and rooms) than a proper hostel. Great option if you visit Riga.

I stayed at the funky hostel a few days back (26th of July) and found the accommodation quite nice. Staff was very informative and polite and also very pleasant to chat with when you're tired and not in the mood for doing the night scene. The only cons of the trip was finding out that doing a load of laundry...

Cozy hostal, very friendly staff, clean rooms and facilities, closed to the city centre of Riga. Breakfast, towels, sheets, coffee and tee were included. The staff gave us great advice on what to do in Riga. We would come back :)

The room was roomy, the location is great, the place is nice and clean and has everything you could hope for from a hostel. If anything can complained about then it is that the 5 story staircase is not half as nice as the hostel itself and the rooms could probably use air conditioning, since it did get a bit...
