I liked this place. It was very laid back, the owner's sister, who was working there, was quite friendly, the rooms were nice and it was peaceful. All of the other budget options in town were very much in the middle of the nightlife scene, and I was grateful not to be there. Breakfast was also included. It was simple but nice.

Safe, friendly hostel in great location in Riga. Loved it and would easily stay again. Very user friendly for english speakers. I found the hostel easily enough from the bus station during the evening.

The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. Kitchen was clean and well stocked, free breakfast was a great treat as well (eggs, bread, cheese, coffee, milk). Comfortable sitting room, free wifi was also a nice surprise.

Bathrooms could be a little cleaner and suggest flip flops in the shower like with most hostels.

My friend and I stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful time. The location is fantastic: just walk a few minutes in a straight line and you'll find yourself in the heart of Riga. So you can easily find your way back even after a few drinks! The beds were very comfy and we felt secure and relaxed at all times.

Eve is a wonderful, very friendly and helpful host. The facilities are clean and of good quality and the price is very low. I'll definitely be staying here again next time I'm in Riga!

It is a nice and clean hostel. The only problem was the wrong written address, it was in a different street and it was hard to find for us while it was raining, and do not be duped by its classical latvian/russian scary looking building, inside is a safe place.

The location is excellent, quite close to the old town. The hostel staff is very friendly and helped a lot in directing me about where to eat and go around the town, even marking things in the map. The asian food place , 'Wok' and latvian food place , 'Lido' , both suggested by him, turned out to be more than excellent with perfect setting cosy setting.

The single room doesnt have attached bathroom, but the shared bathroom is very clean and nice. Those who have big luggages should keep in mind that the hostel is on the 3rd floor and doesnt have a lift.

Room Tip: The dorm is mixed, so its better to take the single room if you need privacy, although its a bit ex...

I stayed in Funky hostel for 7 nights and I had a great time. The hostel is very clean and very cosy and the other guests are friendly and nice to talk to. Also the staff was very friendly and helpsome. The location is perfect as it is just outside old town and also close to the art nouveau center of Riga. I would definitely recommend staying in this hostel for single travellers as you will meet nice people here!
