Liked: I had an amazing time in Cinnamon Sally's. Best staff ever, always very friendly and will help you out with absolutely anything you need. The whole place is clean and nicely decorated. It's a really fantastic place to stay if you want to meet people - the main common area is open and friendly and its easy to get talking to people.. I'll definitely be back :) x

Disliked: nothing

Liked: Central.

Disliked: Probably exclusively for one type of traveller and should be more explicit about this in it's advertisement, but still a good hostel.

The property's response is

Finding out that the "one type" means we don't accept long term stays and it's more for a party crowd, I'm happy to repeat that CS is a Social Backpackers hostel with emphasis on Social and Backpackers. Whatever helps people to socialize flies in CS. Activities happen every day and the maximum stay is limited as it's hard to keep up a social atmosphere with people who work, study or do other serious business in Riga. If people are genuine backpackers and want to stay longer it's never a problem.

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff, very clean and tidy, really cozy atmosphere with chill visitors. The sunny window seat was my favorite, along with the beanbags and really good music playing. The pub crawl was really cheap (5€) and a fun local way to experience the nightlife in Riga.

Disliked: It wasnt at all a problem for our group, but the hostel is on the third floor above a McDonalds, so you walk through the McD's to get to the hostel.

Liked: Very cosy and homely atmosphere. The hostel fascilities are clean and the personnel is very helpful. I liked very much that there are rules that help maintain order and QUIET time at night - which is often a problem in other hostels that the guests are making too much noise in the common room, but not in CS. Free waffles for breakfast is a nice gesture.

Disliked: The location is great - very close to the bus and train station and a big shopping centre and the old town. But this great location also has a downside - there are some shady men lurking around outsidee Macdonalds - but this is normal in every big city. Just keep your eyes open and your wallte-phone close to you. Also - it can be noisy because of traffic, but again, it is normal and I could sleep without earplugs.
