03 August 2015 Customer would recommend this property

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.

Liked: it was as described central near coach station and train station to other parts Latvia, it was clean and cleaner pleasant. ALL the staff: reception (males & females) very pleasant helpful and informed. Breakfast very acceptable. Security (through 3 doors) good

Disliked: very little as you see from my answer to 5 above. Just one gas stove with four rings did mean at times the few of us that actually cooked had to wait for ring space and/or utensils that were in use.
