Liked: Great value for money, a short walk to the main sights, helpful staff, quiet, clean and safe.

Disliked: Slightly unpleasant smell from the drains in the morning when everyone was showering. Some bunk beds have clearly seen better days - they have been repaired but could do with being replaced. Curtains need to be thicker - getting woken up by daylight at 5.30am after a few too many Black Balsams the night before isn't ideal!

Liked: Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the hostel is very cosy and safe and in a great location. Although it isn't in the old town it's a lovely short walk there with many things to see (e.g. Lovely parks) on the way. Some great places to eat right by the hostel too, and some supermarkets.

Disliked: Nothing - all good!

Disliked: Nothing at all! It is on the 5th floor of the building though, so some visitors might not enjoy the stairs!

Liked: Of the 6 countries' hostels we've stayed at so far, this is the best. It is homely and comfortable with a really relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are a generous size and it was marvellous to be able to make a free tea or coffee whenever we needed a pick up. Having one person in charge rather than a team, probably enhanced the feeling of continuity and that the hostel really cared about its service to us.

Disliked: Probably for oldies like us, it is always good to have an ensuite but sharing a bathroom and toilet presented absolutely no problems whatsoeve in this home away from homer.

Liked: It's a bit of a smaller hostel so it's a bit cozier. It's not overrun with large groups of obnoxious kids out to party. It's in an old building with some cool features that add character (like the old tiled stoves in the room). Free breakfast, though simple, is nice.

Disliked: Some might find the 10-minute walk to the old town a bit far, but i think this was actually a positive thing in that you got to see bit more of the city (especially if you take a different route each time you come to and from the old town).

Liked: The hostel feels like one's city apartment. Great kitchen, clean bathrooms, wifi everywhere, computer & printer, key card system. Dorms with reading lamps and huge lockable cages for one's bags under the beds. Quiet location, surrounded by a real neighborhood with shops and parks (rather than tourist pubs and cafes). Not a party hostel, but a great basefor those wanting to get to know Riga.

Disliked: Met few people there. Going up four flights of stairs with bags was a bit tough.
