We staid just one night in Riga, the location was pretty good, even though 15min by walking. Advice: taxi, really cheap in this country 5€ to go to downtown, 8€ from the port to the hostel.
the Hostel Looks clean, and the room we booked for 4 people was quiet big ! The personal was really nice and smiling.
To sum up: cheap / clean / well located (a bit far away if you are lazy)

There were no problems with this hostel.

I liked:
Big room - we had th biggest room in the place, I think it was room 7 apt 2
Clean bathroom - only share with people in your "apartment" so never more than 8 people
Wifi works in the rooms
Free towel
Reception will book your taxi so it's waiting for you in the morning

Dislike
The breakfast was very basic, didn't bother with it after the first day
Reception staff could have been friendlier - they were nice but not overly friendly
The bed was a big piece of foam and only got one tiny pillow

NOTE: this hostel is not that 'Central'. I wouldn't say the area around it is "unsafe", it's a typical rigan st but I always had someone walking with me. If you're someone who is a bit jumpy walking alone at night I'd recommend staying somewhere closer to old town.

Room Tip: Room 7 is the biggest for a private

Good price,clean,rooms are big breakfast is good. ı stayed in another hostel when ı was in Riga at winter, however this hostel is better. It is not easy to find hostel like this. Only problem is more far away from city center ıf ı compare with other hostels,5 minutes more walking not much.

I spent 10 days at the Central Hostel before starting my Erasmus Experience and while waiting to find an apartment.
I can say only good things about this place. People were extremely nice and friendly. The room really spacious and well-designed. The location is not properly central but if you've been to Riga before it takes just 15 minutes walking and it's basically impossible to get lost. Plus, the department of Foreign Languages is just around the corner and bus stops really close as well.
Great first place where to stay if you need to move to Riga or simply spend a few days in this amazing city!

I had a very nice stay in Central Hostel.. I felt like at home. The lounge is like your own living room, cosy and comfortable and so is the kitchen. I was impressed about the selection of herbal teas and there was a coffee maker with real coffee.There was free internet in the lounge and in the hallway and I could use it any time I wanted. No queing. I would have liked to stay longer.
