Liked: Everything! Location was awesome- easy to walk to sights of the old town & literally 2 mins from a supermarket & shopping centre. The staff were really friendly and helpful! They had suggestions of cool stuff to do & see, good places to eat & go for a drink. The 4 bed girls dorm was a good size, with comfy beds. The showers were great too- enough hot water and great water pressure! The welcome shot was a bonus! I would definitely stay here again if I'm back in Riga!

Disliked: Nothing :)

Liked: This has to be the best hostel I've ever stayed at, the staff are absolutely amazing and so helpful, the building is secure, rooms are good, wifi everywhere, there are activities put on by the hostel everyday (but no pressure to join if you don't want to), super social, quiet at night, there's a bar there, super clean, there's a small kitchen if you want to prepare basic meals (but Riga is way cheap so better to eat out), great location, there's also a comfy couch in a quiet corner to sleep on after a big night and you have to check out and just to say it again, the staff are amazing :)

Liked: Awesome hostel, definitely stay here! Comfy and sturdy bunks, you can actually sit up on the lower bunk without smacking your head. You have a cage under the bed to lock all your stuff up; free linen & towels; big rooms; enough bathrooms and they are kept pretty clean. Very sociable, comfortable common area, met heaps of cool people here. The staff are excellent, mostly locals and very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. The kitchen is very small and kinda forms part of the bar, and the fridge is in a different room, so not the sort of place anyone really did a lot of cooking.

Disliked: Sophie left no negative feedback.

Liked: In the old town, quite close to bus and railway stations. Nice rooms, well furnished. Spot less bathrooms.

Disliked: Kitchen absolutely too small, moreover used as a pub area for guests, so it's rather impossible to cook a meal. Washing machine service is too much expensive (6 euros for just 4 kg)
