Reviewed 20 January 2013

Funky hostel gets it all right. Right from the moment of arrival, we were given such personal attention from the lovely Australian woman running the place. We had a lovely, warm and comftoable stay there. Warm and clean shower, comfortable bed, good kitchen and nice communal area.

Finest hospitality. Remark especially the good living zone, the best view onto a 1903 building, free wifi, maps etc.
Should the masters want to up grade a thing, I would recommend them to provide guests with pure water and to invent some smaller shelves or something just next to the upper beds. One has no place to put smaller belonging. it is however not compulsory at all. Going to recommend to anyone

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.
