Liked: Amazing hostel, great facilities, beds through to bar area. 24/7 bar and loads of activities to pick and choose from. Loads of people to meet. Short walk to the main old town squares

Disliked: Big hostel, means lots of people. Good for meeting and partying, not really cosy! But on flip side big beds and curtains means private and quite if needs be

Liked: Fantastic, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Great atmosphere Really comfy beds, each with its own curtain and locker (as usual bring a pad lock) Different things going on each night, very sociable, if you like yo drink you'll have te opportunity to do that, but I always got a good nights sleep- so no need to worry if your not up for partying every night. Super clean hostel. Definitely I would recommend

Liked: The staff were really friendly and helpful throughout our whole stay, they helped us organise night Kayaking which was great. The room was clean and the cages under the beds were really handy for leaving clothes in etc. The showers were always hot and the bathrooms were always clean. We were a group of 5 people aged 24-25 and the hostel was amazing value for money and it is in the perfect location, right in the middle of Old Town.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike!

Liked: Better late than never, so this hostel does what it says on the can. it has everything you need amazing beds, lots of showers etc, clean wifi blah blah blah. But what makes this a great hostel are the staff!. Im writing this review about a month after i stayed and can still recall those friendly faces! the girls there are so genuinely friendly and are happy to point you in the right direction, have a chat and play foosball with you. I have fond memories of this hostel even when getting beat down at foosball by Liva! All in all stay here if they are not fully booked! I walked in as a stranger and walked out as a friend ;)

Disliked: Having to let Liva win foosball so she doesnt get moody :P

Liked: Naughty squirrel is just amazing!! In the heart of Riga, but still close to the bus and train station, offering a lot of cool activities. You can gather around in the nice common areas, having a beer at the bar and relax. The rooms are really clean and cosy. The beds are the most comfortable hostel beds I've ever seen!! Also great staff, always friendly and helpful :-)

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: The place was utterly clean, for the amount of people that stay there. Absolutely great location, so easy to find and very close to both bus stop to/fro airport and literally 3-5 minute walk from the Coach station. Very friendly staff and atmosphere is home-like.

Disliked: Only downside was that the radiators didn't work, for it being very cold weather.
