Only stayed one night before heading home. Double room was very comfortable and we didn't have any problems with noise. Showers were ok, warm enough. Wifi worked fine. You have to walk into mcdonalds to get to it which is a bit odd. The area itself seemed to have a few strange folk around as it's so close to the... More

The location is perfect. There is TV, DVD player, and some collection of movies. We watched Euro cup. The kitchen is equipped with sufficient crockery so that you can cook a bit. Tea and coffee is free. Very clean toilets. Only problem was that the cross ventilation was very poor. So the rooms were very hot. I am Indian. So... More

The hostel itself was clean and had a pleasant atmosphere. We had booked a private room, and I was impressed at how big it was. The bed was comfortable and, whilst I have experienced more luxurious showers in other hostels, the bathroom/toilet setup was pretty good, all things considered. If I have an issue with Riga Hostel it is that... More

Hard to complain about a hostel that charges 6.5 euros/night for a 6-bed dorm and includes a decent breakfast Friendly staff. Laundry is 7E, same-day service at a nearby hostel. But I — and others — had trouble finding RH using the instructions they had provided. The last key sentence read: ‘You see McDonalds, turn left and take the first... More

This hostel is very conveniently located - the Old Town and Art Nouveau District are both easily within walking distance. The place is clean and comfortable and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The only slight negative is that my room was very near to the front desk and the sound of talking until late might keep some people... More

The location of this hostel is excellent, only a 10 min (or less) walk from the bus terminal and the train station is a stone's throw away. Easy to find, just look for McDonald's and take the elevator to the 4th floor. Staff were friendly, rooms & bathrooms were clean. A good breakfast (bread, cereals, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, spreads, juice,... More

I spent three nights in this hostel with my daughter during our journey to Baltic countries. We had two beds in a 6-bed dorm. Great location, it's only a couple of minutes walking from the railway station and pretty close to the bus station.

Convenient location - walkable almost everywhere. Near the Stockman store with a nice supermarket for take-away food. Near main rail and bus stations as well. Kitchen's not big enough to accommodate all the guests. A bit difficult to find at first because it is inside the McD and upstairs. I stayed there around Sept, 2014.
