The double-bed room is clean and designed. The location is good but not that near from the train station (10-15 minutes walking distance), and around 15-25 minutes walking distance to the old town area. Breakfast is so-so. The Staff is very friendly and helpful.Toilette and shower room is clean.

I spent a prolonged weekend friday to monday at the Central Hostel, partly chosen because of the recommendations here at Trip Advisor.

After overcoming the challenge of finding the plce - we managed to misunderstand the very detailed directions from the hostel - we soon found ourselves in a beautiful little room up under the roof, with visual rustic wooden beams, double bed and and a chair. The bathroom/wc was shared with the rest of the "appartment", which means 3 rooms, of which one is a dormitory. Always nice and clean.

Only minus is the very small kitchen, where one could feel very unwelcome, if a group was already sitting and eating the free breakfast by the small table. Fortunately it is possible to grab some food and go to an other room to eat it.

Free tea and coffee is always available, and that is really great in a cold winter/spring like the one, Riga is exeriencing right now.

The staff is helpful to recommend places to eat and go if asked, but apart from that spend their time behind a computer screen.

All in all a great place for a weekend in Riga!

Quite average stay, we didnt really have any problems, staff are good, only concern is about temperature in the rooms, it was a bit cold even when heating was on max, wifi worked only in the lobby and internet on the computer was superslow, breakfast was typical hostel-style: toast bread, jam and some spread, juice & tea.Location good, overall: nothing special but okay, dont know if there is any better hostel in Riga. Plus I remember-a towel provided was dirty, but I used mine anyway.

The Central Hostel is a good option in Riga. It is located in an old block of flats and not so easy to recognize from the outside. The neighborhood is not super pleasant, but otherwise the location is ok, 10-15 min walk to the old town and less than 10 min to the railway station. They serve free breakfast with a lot of fresh ingredients which is a great advantage. Rooms and common facilities are cosy and clean. The wifi works fine. And, moreover, this hostel is cheap. I would go again.

I spent 3 nights at the central hostel and I must say I enjoyed my stay. Definitely value for money and the staff were really helpful and friendly. I would certainly recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Riga.
