Just got back from Riga, this hostel is in an excellent position for the Old Town and overlooking the Opera House and the Beautiful park and canal.The room was large and basic but clean except for the toilet pan which looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in ages, hardly saw any staff but the kitchen area was always clean and tidy. it is within very easy walking distance of all the attractions of the Old Town and the park is amazing, look out of the window at sunset to see the starlings flying in to roost, amazing sight.
Will definitely go back again later in the year!!!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the front overlooking the park, not much to see out the back except the building opposite

The hotel clearly ran out of money in retro-fitting the Riga hotel to a better standard, and attempted to make a youth hostel with the last floor. It's an interesting idea (regular hotel on first three floors filled with rich old people, hostel filled with poor young people, thus bring the average age down to 25). However, you do get a good feel of what Riga was like under Soviet times! They really should market it like that. Fun for the whole family.

Essentially, it's a relatively clean place to sleep. That's about it. I had the room cloest to the communal bathroom, TV and kitchen. It was noisy and annoying. The shower and drain was useless, and within seconds the tub was filled with water. There was also a fire alarm that needed a battery change, so every 10 seconds, a loud beep would emit from the central area.

Walking into the hotel, it feels slightly like god's waiting room, but hands down, the central location for the price can't be beat. I did have a view of the central square and the opera, and the free WI-FI is nice. The picture is slightly deceiving, as it is a room with a bed, desk and chair. That's it. Bring earplugs. You'll need them.

Room Tip: Stay away from the kitchen, bathroom and TV area

Very good hostel in nice central hotel. Lovated in the heart of Riga - Old town. Check-in only from 3 p.m., but it is not problem, as you can go arround the Old town if arrive before 3 p.m. We got triple room in 6 floor with nice view to the Old town. At night was little noisy, as at this time was Riga city celebration. But no problem for us about it. Very good value of price and quality.

Very simple hostel in central Riga, right in front from the Opera House. It is on the 3rd floor of a 4* hotel. If you need a cheap, central and simple place to sleep, choose Green Apple. There was only onde problem... when we arrived the water was yellow... but after a while it was normal! It is also near the bus station, around 5 min walking and 20 min walk to the harbour.
