YANRAN HUANG thinks…

"Never ask for something better as a hostel. A little noisy at night but you can ask for a pair of ear plugs on reception."

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.

Liked: I rarely leave reviews but this one I needed to as it is truly an Absolute amazing hostel. There isn't a bad thing I could say. I've stayed at over 150 hostel in my job as a tour guide and this is clearly in the top 3, if not number 1. Good staff at a hostel can make or break your staff and this place has it and more. Alise, Liva, Anita and co literally make your time in riga!! I loved it so much I extended my trip and stayed longer. It has an awesome common area, great activities, super good showers, comfy beds! If you don't love this hostel, you should stay at home as this is the perfect hostel for all travellers!!

Disliked: That I couldn't stay forever.

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!

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 :)
