I stayed there for 3 nights last week, travelling on my own. Despite the snorer in my room, the experience was great. Helpful and friendly staff. Would happily stay there if I were to end up in Riga again.

Really great hostel, very clean and neat, with an awesome location (in the center of the old town); the staff is very friendly and is always eager to help. There are a lot of schedules and events to party and meet new people that are organized by the hostel as well. The showers are good and the beds are comfortable....

One of the best hostels I've stayed in, staff are great, I met a huge amount of people and had a really relaxing couple of days. Managed to get a ticket to an ice hockey game, and shot an AK on a shooting range. Very little went wrong.

Pretty much the whole hostel was...

Stayed here late February and so glad we did! We were made to feel so welcome on our stay and would definitely recommend. On arrival we were greeted and walked through a map of the best places to go and offered a welcome shot which was a really nice touch! We stayed in a double room with our own bathroom...

This hostel was perfect for what I was looking for. I booked a private room and loved it - it was clean, spacious, and gave me the quiet and privacy I wanted in order to sleep. The common room is really sociable; there are people drinking and playing games each night and I ended up going out both nights with...
