Stayed there for 1 night while in Riga. The service was second to none, as they constantly asked what you were up to and offered suggestions on things to see and where to eat. Every thing they suggested turned out to be a hit. The offer so many additional trip experiences, you could easily fit in a week's worth of activities and never leave the hostel. I personally, went to the AK47 shooting, which they pulled off very well. The hostel representative ensured that all the paperwork was done and that we completely understood the safety rules. The cost was a value too, with tram fare, the shooting, pictures, and a drink afterwards at the Aussie Backpackers Bar included in the fee. Only downside was that as a tall guy, the shower heads were a little low, but that is no deal breaker for my love of this hostel.
