Seagulls Garret Hostel
Ranked #9 of 145 Speciality Lodging in Riga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2014

The Seagull Hostel is conveniently located in the center of the old town, very close to the train station and bus terminal. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and the rooms are very nice, tidy and clean. Perhaps the only drawback is that it's a bit noisy at times, as there is a pub downstairs. But hey, where do you expect do find a really quiet place in the city center?

We had a great time in riga-not only because of the wonderful old town,also because of the very helpful and friendly staff there! They helped us planning the day and evening, and sometimes joined us in the evening, thanks again!

I went there with my bike and they had a place to put it, gave me maps and explained me where the best routes were.. They even did some phone calls for me! Everyone was super friendly and made me feel comfortable.
Nice new building and everything is still working and complete (probably a recent hostel). Enough showers and toilets, big rooms. Very much in the center!

When you enter the place, you won't get the impression hat the place is Baltic. However, the service is great. The staff is smiling and ready to help and the rooms are clean. They also have a free tour that ends with a local 200 years old wine sample. Victoria , the guide, is sweet.

Room Tip: Take the rooms that do not face the street. Or you are in for noisy loud drunkards passing by.

Seagulls Garret Hostel is a quiet and calm hostel and still in the most central location, very close to the train and buss station. We stayed in a double room, facing the back street.
The hostel has a very nice terrace and the kitchen is well equipped. The service was slightly absentminded.

The location is great, in the middle of the oldtown and just 2 minutes walk to the market, 5 minutes to the trainstation and the bus stop to the airport is just around corner (number 22). The whole place is very clean, the kitchen is well equipped and the living room is super cozy. The staff is great and helpful with tips. A highlight is the newly buildhuge terrace, which is quite unique in oldtown and great for smokers (like I´m). This place is highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: All rooms a good, depents how much you want spend.
