Liked: Really friendly, helpful staff. Nice vibe about the place-not noisy or rowdy but a friendly atmosphere to meet people. Great value pub crawl. Really good location for the city, old town & trains & buses.

Liked: They took us out on a pubcrawl which wasnt too rowdy but was a great way to meet everybody and the staff running it was awesome. They had waffles in the morning for free and a comfy common room.

Disliked: The internet only worked in the common room which was annoyning but since they have a really good common room it was actually good to meet people.

Hi!

We are happy to hear, that you enjoyed our waffles :)

About the WIFI- we have a strong connection everywhere, just you have to switch to other router ( as we have 3 of them, in every corner in hostel ) :)

Cheers & safe travels

Liked: It was clean and they had lockers with a reasonable size

Disliked: it was too far away from the old town and you had to enter McDonalds to get to the hostel which was confusing. I have seen many nicer hostels in Riga, try those.

Hello!

Actually its 7 minute walk to Old Town ;)
You don't have to walk into Mc'Donalds , but between Mc' Donalds and Mc Cafe ;)

Cheers & happy travels
