Liked: Genuinely friendly place. Ieva and Madara are lovely ladies. Madara took a group of us out on a fun filled tour of Riga's nightlife the Friday night which ended with the world's biggest pizza. Brilliant! They sell drinks in the hostel for only 1 LAT each and the atmosphere was great. Highly recommended!

Liked: Going inside feels like you're right at home. Friendly staff and warm atmosphere makes you feel really welcome. The showers were clean, there was a place to do laundry. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Feels very homy overall.

Disliked: I didn't like how there wasn't a sign out on the street to figure out where to go. Kind of sketchy when you have to climb three flights of stairs in some old building hoping it's the right place. Also, when I was leaving in the morning there was NO ONE there to help me figure out how to get to the airport, etc. And I couldn't find any staff the night before after midnite to help me with the laundry.

Liked: I felt like I was at home. Cozy warm fun and inviting. Ieva the owner was wonderful and very beautiful. I will never forget her. She welcomed us into her home (hostel). She was very helpful and kind. She will now be a friend that will be forever remembered. Thank you Ieva.

Disliked: It was difficult finding the place. The name of the hostel is Cinammon Sally. The sign outside says beds and roses hostel. I was confused.

Liked: Extremely friendly staff, very cozy atmosphere (Interior of the hostel thoroughly arranged) Nice lounge with kitchen where travellers can sit and socialize. Clean place, lockers in the rooms where you can lock your bags during the day. And all this for a very fair price.

Disliked: The location might not be very secure since every guest gets a key for the door of hostel.

Liked: The hostel really is a warm, clean, and comfortable place. The beds are good, there are spacious lockers, and a really amazing owner (who is always around to help you with anything you need, and dedicated to making her hostel the best in Riga). Would happily stay here again!

Disliked: There is no sign for the hostel, so make sure you read the directions for how to get there (between mcdonald's and mcCafe)

Liked: the service here was fantastic, beds were great, its close enough to everything and it is spotless.

Disliked: both nights here i was kept awake all night by a group who were intent on taking there party into the dorms til well past happy hours (from 12 til 6am). staying in hostels i expect some noise but these guys were over the top. the only reason i didnt give this place a full rating was because i thought some quiet time should have been laid down with these guys. not was not the fault of the hostel that they were rowdy i just think for the sake of an overall happy, well slept group there needed to be some rules enforced. (i know. "party pooper", but what the hell. nerds stay in hostels too you know?)
