Liked: Quite simply the best hostel we have stayed in so far. great staff and Ieva is the most lovely owner very very friendly and helpful. They were so detailed with the info they give you, lovely pre made beds & spacious rooms and they were constantly cleaning so the place was spotless!! The communal area is like a lounge of someones house they've spent years making their own, soooo cosy and the perfect space for people to proper chill in, hence the atmosphere amongst the travelers where everyone wants to chat over a beer or cider sold at the hostel.. 100% on everything, met some lovely people there. Oh and perfect directions, really easy to find!!

Disliked: Absolutely nothing!! Seriously!!

Liked: I can't think of anything negative about this place. It's all good! Super clean, good showers, full kitchen, safe in the rooms, rooms not too crowded, great location, staff is fantastic, and a very nice common room where you'll definitely meet with everybody staying at the hostel. I've stayed in an incredible amount of hostels, and this one reaches if not the top, definitely top 5 bests in the world!!

Liked: The location and the staff were fantastic. The bunks were by far the best we've ever slept in. The place was also very clean, thanks to the shoes off policy at the door - really made it feel like home!

Disliked: Overall, nothing too serious. However the kitchen utensils could do with an upgrade in our opinion (as we are fussy cookers!).

Liked: really great hostel and super-helpful staff, handy location (not far from rail/bus/old town, groceries nearby), very cozy atmosphere! And clean and felt safe.

Disliked: Kitchen was a bit cramped--could use another food-prep counter, some more fridge/cupboard space, and a table for eating at.

Liked: The staff was really nice and helpful. The common area was relaxed and there was a good relaxed enviornment where you could meet people and have conversation. The facilities were good and you could buy beer or cider which was really convenient. I asked for an extra towel to go to the beach and they were more than happy to give me one. If I ever go back to Riga I will definitely stay here again.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike.

Liked: The location is very good. The bed is comfortable and the room is spacious enough. Additionally, they provide a towel. The staffs are helpful and she and her staff are there so most places are kept clean and easy to get informaton.

Disliked: The noise of the traffic and some people in the common room. If you are really tired and want to sleep before 12 o'clock, you definitely will need an earplug.
