Nicole Green thinks…

"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…"

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.

Disliked: It's in a great location, but the overly detailed directions make it seem hard to find. It's across the street from the train station, on the 3rd floor above McDonalds. That's it!
