Liked: Not too far from town but not exactly in old riga which is the heart of the city.

Disliked: A bit noisy as you can hear drunk revelers shouting on the streets at weekends but this is a minor issue. Rooms a bit warm.

Liked: The fee of the hostel was quite cheap and the hostel was clean and staff was very kind.

Disliked: The location of hostel is very far from the old town and at night I can hear all of sounds of the hostel. The staff need to notice to other customers who were in common room.

Liked: friendly staff, clean, stylish, and spacious rooms, clean toilets and bathrooms, several couches for lounging, free towel, free breakfast.

Disliked: none really. although the long distance from the reception door to the receptionist table reminds me of deliberation day in school, it's really a personal peeve rather than a negative or fault of the hostel.

Liked: good hostel, free parking, kitchen, lounge

Disliked: -too far from old town-Some disgusting smelly barefoot old guy came into the kitchen one morning and fixed himself some toast and coffee. He looked hung over and like he had vomited on himself. The way he seemed right at home and ignored any eye contact, I think he might have been a permanent resident there, maybe the maintenance guy or something? He did not look like a fellow traveler. It was definitely offputting.
