Liked: Clean rooms, comfortable and spacious rooms, with sufficient number of showers and bathrooms. Good location, close to bus station and old town. Good value for money. Would happily stay there again if I ever return to Riga.

Disliked: Staff didn't seem that enthusiastic to work there, not sure whether that was because of the heat (the hostel was pretty warm inside when I stayed there) or because of the fact that they worked 2-3 days straight. Sometimes felt though that you were a nuisance whenever you had to ask them about something.

Liked: Awesome hostel, very friendly people always willing to help you out withanything and organising really nice events and activities. The atnosphere is really nice there, but this of course depoends mainly on the people staying there with you. Nice location, somewhere in the heart of the city, with an entrance hidden between the McDo and the McCafe

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

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.
