If you have researched this hostel before staying here then you have heard about the stairs, so know what to expect! For any fit person they are really not an issue. I arrived late to this hostel to an excellent welcome from Alex. He made sure that I knew where everything was, how everything worked, and that I had everything...

The Funky Hostel was our favorite accommodations of our entire trip to the Baltic region!!! Alex was amazingly nice and pleasant and really made us feel at home. The entire hostel felt like a home. It was decorated in cute colors and was very clean. The breakfast spread provided more options than we were expecting and it was a treat...

Very familiar atmosphere, good location (short walking distance to old town) and friendly staff. Great price quality option it also includes breakfast in the offer. Its more a house (kitchen, living room and rooms) than a proper hostel. Great option if you visit Riga.

The only cons of the trip was finding out that doing a load of laundry...

The room was roomy, the location is great, the place is nice and clean and has everything you could hope for from a hostel. If anything can complained about then it is that the 5 story staircase is not half as nice as the hostel itself and the rooms could probably use air conditioning, since it did get a bit...
