“Fun, comfortable and great staff.”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

We absolutely loved this place. Great fun (bar stays open till late hours) and staff are so friendly and helpful.
Absolutely recommend to stay in this hostel if your young and want to meet people as the communal areas are comfortable and its easy to meet fellow travelers. Rooms were spotless and modern. Great value.

Stayed July 2013

...as it is.
Easygoing but professional. Card-key system, welcome drink, very good english speaking staff, excellent location. Cleaning 24 hours. They even have a huge box of phone battery charger....
Frankly, the best experience in Baltic states.

The Staff is what makes this place! from the hardworking Blond to the great jarrod and the manager yeneta.
The rooms are very clean as well as the bathrooms
They have a lot of tours and activities you can make in riga, from shooting in a bunker to night Bar tours.
The common living room is great with wireless and its the real party starter

When you arrive you choose the happy hour for that day, were you can drink 1/2 Liter os Zelda Beer for just 1Lat

I really recommend the naughty Squirrel Hostel

We booked our own room. No complaints. Good level hostel, clean and service was excellent. Not for a romantic trip with the special one. but good place for solo traveller and even better when travelling with friends =).

Room Tip: If you are able to book a private room, it always gives you a bit more more peace.

This hostel has a fun atmosphere! You can stay up and hang out with friends and the common area is suitable for meeting people. Each night I stayed, I met new people. The kitchen is large and conducive to cooking and the bathrooms are all clean. While it has a loud and fun atmosphere, the bedrooms are quiet, making it easy to sleep here. The hostel also has a bar, making it easy to have a night cap before bed. This place is really fun and really clean. I would absolutely stay here again as a group traveler or as a line traveler.

Excellent hotel. Fantastic location in Old Town. Super short walk to any point in central Riga. Clean and comfortable rooms/bathrooms. Friendly staff. Heaps of activities organised. I'd recommend the yellow suitcase walking tour. Good wi fi. Australian owned.

I hate hostels because they tend to be so loud. However, the staff does an excellent job keeping this place quiet at night! The only noise came from the street. I was in a four bed room and found it very clean and comfortable. Bathrooms very also clean, and the staff was AMAZING! I would definitely stay there again!
