    Quiet room, cleanlines

    Breakfast (had to wait for a long time & did not match the price...we would have got better breakfast cheaper from cafeterias close by). No curtain on the window-->had to wake up with the sun

    Location is near from Old Center - price is nice.

    Hotel has no car parking, we used paid one near the Academy. There is a litle loud music in bar/restaurant at evening and morning. No TV in the room - it's for additional money.

    The location was best. It was also great that even if the login was at 02.00 p.m, we were lucky to have our room already at 11.00 a.m.

    The rooms are BIG including the bathrooms! But the enterior is oldish (which on the other hand fits with the old bulding imago), only an old TV (although I have to give credits for the english channels (2 of them)) and no curtains which was a clear minus.

    A male receptionist was quite rude, kept staring at my girlfriend and wasn't very polite with anyone. He was watching boxing in the screen of the computer and was too busy to say "hi" or anything while we entered the hotel. He could do better.

    Location was close to the old town

    No wifi in the room. Karaoke bar downstairs - you could hear the bad singing and loud music in the hostel room on the top floor until 2 am. Problems with water pressure - at times it was weak and at times there was no water(!). Hotel staff was not helpful on that issue but otherwise they were great. They only accept cash (no credit card, fortunately ATMs are everywhere). Situated on the market - scary place in the evening/night and very noisy in the morning. No A/C but it was over 30*C outside and much hotter in the room (this is unusual for Riga of course). Could not leave roof window open because one time we did and it rained into my bed:s. Pood breakfast (for us it was included), you can only choose one drink (juice, coffee OR tea) and they prepare the food, you cannot choose what they serve.. did not like porridge and sausages. Would not stay there again, there are better hostels near by.

    Clean room, simple and much space. Nice- friendly staff. Close to the city centre. Good value for the money. Kids liked.

    Ment for backbackers, not reachable by car. Loud music coming from downstairs. Not loud enough to keep awake.

    the hostel lies in the centre of Europes biggest market place and next to the City. You arrive the Old Town in 15 minutes by feet. The breakfast was very good. Instead of a buffet you get the dayly special. In our case it was an omelett with salad and toast and after that two big pancakes with marmelde and fruits. Enough until the evening! The crew always helps you if possible and the rooms were quiet if closed the window.

    The TV in the room didn't work as it should have. We only had audio but no picture. But you stay there for sleeping not for watching TV. So it wasn't so bad. There was no curtain or anything else in front of the window so that you were awakening from the sun in the dawn.

    I stayed one night. The hotel has excellent location due to proximity to main railway station, but to airport and to the market. You can actually buy flowers, vegeteblas or even mushrooms while stepping out door. The building itself is very nice, seems like it has been renovated from an old industrial building. The staff at the reception desk was very polite and willing to help, and spope very good English. There are six meals for breakfest you can choose from. There is free wi-fi even in the room, although the connection is better in the hall downstairs.

    There were several concerns about my stay. First, the location close to the market had a backside - you meet a lot of homeless, junks and weirdoes around the hostel. Second, the room was designated as non smoking but it formerly used to be a smoking one, I am sure; I deduced this from the horrible smell that came out from carpets, curtains and matraces, it was just so bad smell; at least this room must be refurbished to make a real non smoking room from it. Third, the restaurant downstairs played a local version of the cheapest disco music very loud all day long, and until midnight. It might not be an issue if you are out to party all night, but you might mind in the morning. The combination with the fact that I could not close the window due to the smell was killing. Additionally, the staff in the restaurant was not very friendly.

    Backpackers Planet on the edge of the produce market. It is close to the bus station and only a short walk to the old town.

    The T.v in the room was on a chair in the corner. It was no where near the cables. It had obviously not worked for some time. Why leave it there? It was just taking up much space.

    The room was clean and nice, lovely window in the roof. The curly haired man in the reception was super-nice, and everybody spoke very good english. Breakfast was also good. Hostel was quite quiet, nobody was partying, other guests didn't bother us. The location is good, near the old-town and the market place and still the cost was quite low.

    The pillows were too soft..but that's a small problem

    My friend and I stayed at this hostel for 1 night and liked it very much. First of all the location is good. Short distance to the railway and bus station, 5 minutes walk to the Old City. The hotel's situated near a big market. In spite of coming earlier than check-in time (6 A.M.) a receptionst accomodated us without problem and extra money. The room was big and clean. There was everything we need except tv, but it was unnecessary for us. We paid for a breakfast and wouldn't be pity. It's not a buffet, you should choose in advance what you want to eat. But the quality, taste and size of dishes are good enough to be not hungry for a long time. The canteen is working as a bar. So you don't need to look for a place for eating somewhere else. The stuff was helpful and friendly. Very good service for economy stay. So the next time we'll stay here again.

    Nothing bad. We liked it very much.

    Its affordable and cool,the staffs in d restaurant are wonderful and the administrator (guy) with a long hair is excellent...speak great,helpful,social and well organized.

    Its okay but I think most of the rooms might need air conditioner or fan in future and I have a problem communicating in English with some administrators on phone when booking...its an international hotel so a competent administrator should always be around to answer phone from abroad but the guys are great.not only the guys but d ladies too
