“Very lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2010

We stayed 4 nights in Central Hostel and it has been the best hostel I've ever been. Very nice and friendly staff, the rooms were are clean.
The basic breakfast was great, if you want to eat something else just put it in the kitchen fridge. The rooms were just relaxing. Very simple but great design of the rooms, some with these chairs you hang on the ceiling.
If I go to Riga another time, than it will definetly be in the Central Hostel

Cozy atmosphere. Friendly staff.
Breackfast room is tooo small. Can only fit 2-4 people.
Hostel is not clean (dust growing in lamps, bathroom, rafters).
Beddings are not confortable with tongs that try to enter in your back.
And by the way, Central Hostel is not so central.

Ok, this is not a hotel. But for a hostel it was absolutely amazing! We got a warm welcome, a clean and lovely room and a great location for very nice price. The breakfast was free too but I have to suggest people bring their own food too as they only have the bare minimum. The fridge was shared so I accidentally drank someone's orange juice. I'm sorry. I have already booked another trip to the town and this hostel. I'm loving it way more than the 4 star hotel I would stay the first time!

I had booked a room at the Tia hotel but unfortunately for the wrong date.
I arrived 05:30 in the morning and wandered through town and found central hostel.
I was welcomed by a lovely receptionist who helped me. I was so tired and couldn't care less about what the room would look like. A bed was all I needed.
Booked a doubleroom for myself since the singles were fullybooked.
Lovely room. Clean and spacious.
Clean bathroom just outside the room.
Always have earplugs with me so I didn't get disturbed during the night at all.
Day after I needed directions and information and the receptionist was extremely helpful.
I stayed for one and a helf day and could not have been happier.

Thank you !
