Early this year I had to find place to stay in Old Riga for a week, in a photos it looked nice and price was alright, but this place was stinking I guess it is something to do with bathroom or toilet, it was disgusting. I could not take a shower because water was barely warm and that smell everywhere.... More

Very central, that was the best of the hostal, the rooms were quite ok and the staff as well. Typical central hostel to stay few nights with a good value for the quality you get. I can't complain about anything

The location is good but the rooms were not clean and it was noisy. There are many stairsteps upp to the place and no elevator, so for people with any walking problems can't go there. The staf were friendly and helpful.

The location couldn't be more central - absolutely perfect! Close to every attraction. The price is good, really cheap and worth it. The hostel could do with a bit of a redecoration, but it is very clean. The staff were very friendly, accommodating and gave excellent advice! Would definitely return

We had booked this hostel for three nights. We just left after the first. The place smells horrible. Old drainage and sewer smells. The staff were not very friendly and proved unable to help us as our toilet wasn't functional and they were not able to get someone to repair it. They apparently hardly tried to all day. We were...

The position of the hostel is in the city center near the dome. So the position is PERFECT!!! The beds are not confy at all, there is a bad small in the corridors due to the toilets. The linen of the beds are dirty. Wi-fi is so poor!You can find a better solution with the same money in Riga

Very nice hostel, and a great price. Very central, and close to most of the attractions in Riga. The workers there were also really nice and good in English! The bathroom and showers were clean. The only thing that bothered me, was the smell in the stairs.
