I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and I had an overall good experience. The staff was really friendly and easy-going and the location was superb. The beds are not the most comfortable but cannot really complain. If you're with huge bags, consider that you will have to climb up to the top floor in a not too spacious...

My friends and I (6ps) had a room together with 3 bunkers. The room was nice and clean but one of the beds had some dark blood like stains. The beds was hard for the back but I personally slept fine. There's a student club as neighbors but i wasn't disturbed. Service was good. It's very central and there's a...

I stayed here on the 1st November. The Hostel was hard to find at first and I had to ask 3 people for directions, but once found, it was so easy to remember and was very secure. On arrival unfortunately there was no one at reception desk and a sign to say someone would return shortly. I left my mobile...

We stay in the private twin room. But we found our passports, phone, camera and few more small items were been stolen. We locked the door before we sleep, but it was open in the morning. And we found our bag in the staircases. The staff only help us to call police then keep saying I don't know. And the...

The hostel is located in central Riga and is in a great apot to access the city and bars/cafés. The rooms were ok but the hostel in general was small and at times staff were not available. More kitchen space would have been better as it was too crowded with three or more people.

Dear Nomeian, thank you for review. Glad to know you liked Teddy Bear hostel Riga, which is extremely well located in the very heart of Old Riga. We try to provide cozy, comfortable and homely atmosphere, which at times hard to find in larger establishments. You are correct in defining that our premises are pretty small, but in turn it...

This hostel is close to the bus station, which is definitely a big advantage. But we didn't get a city map (shouldn't it be given in hostels?) and..there is no hot water! A little disappointed but still not a bad choice for a one night stay.

If you're just looking for a place to rest your head in a good location for a reasonable price then you can't go wrong here. Downsides for me where: 4 flights of stairs (not ideal with luggage). Security, door to my room was quite flimsy, no lighting in the dark passage coming back to the hostel at night. Bathrooms very...

It's located in the Old Town, close to the bus/train station. It's adapted hostel in an old building with lots of stairs. ;) I liked it. And I loved the bathtube. :) The room (6 people) was clean, sunny in the morning but didn't have nice view (maybe the other 6people room had better). There are no lockers in the...

I stayed in this hostel in May 2013 and it was my first experience of visiting a hostel. It was nice, clean, with rather good and simple breakfast (toasts and jam). We stayed there for 2 days and i can say that it is the best option for a short trip. The place in 2 steps to St. Pietri and...

“* Take deluxe room. It’s far better in quality then average 3* hotel and costs twice less. * Do not rely on local breakfast. There are plenty choices outside for nominal charge. * Spare time for a talk with different staff girls – they are unique source for all you need in Riga.”
