The place us brand new. It's overlooking the canal, beautiful accommodations, great quiet view, and close to bus station and to old town. I love it here. Great breakfast, more than just basics. None

Liked: Fantastic hostel - the rooms are extremely clean and comfortable, beautiful and even well-decorated. It's an easy walk to the main bus and train stops, and a pretty easy walk down to the city center as well. There's food nearby, the wi-fi is fantastic, and it's easily worth the money. The staff are helpful and can tell you plenty about Riga - also, they speak English very well, so no worries there. The atmosphere was nice, too, I met some nice fellow travelers.

Disliked: I got there late at night and it was awkward getting in the first time, because I had to go to a concealed gate around the side. Obviously this is a minimal worry, but it's something to be aware of if you're planning on getting there late - just go around and buzz them at the side gate.

Liked: This was a bargain and pretty nice as well. Free breakfast and towel with a great Sunday feast of fresh veggies, fruit, eggs, coffee, cereal, etc. It was a short walk to the bus station/train station and old town. There were computers and a TV that worked with good movies.

Disliked: I hate stairs but most of these older buildings have stairs.
