stef.econo Very friendly, welcoming and fantastic staff but very, very noisy especially if you have a room overlooking the road. Don't expect much sleep.

joonas.ker Riga is an expensive city (especially regarding the accommodation), so I would expect a little more comfort from my hostel with this price somewhere else. However, Central Hostel Riga is a very cozy place with a friendly staff who are willing to help you out with anything you have in your mind. Our double room with a bathroom was very plain and moderate, but we enjoyed it. However, the doors of the rooms are very thin, so this could be a problem, if people are talking at night. But because it surely is a place of the backpackers, usually everybody is sensible enough to take it into consideration. We really liked the way the breakfast was served. :)

jcarpenter It rained most of the time but the city was small enough for me to get out when it wasn't raining and see the bits I wanted to see. The Occupation Museum was great and the receptionist was very helpful. The floors seemed to be very sticky and the 3 flights of stairs were no fun, especially with bags but overall I had a positive stay. By luck I found that I could by my bus ticket from them which saved me getting drenched. I would return

gepke_koop Our location was perfect; just one street away from the main street and no bothering of outgoing people . The service was also very well. The girl behind the desk was really helpful. And what I appreciated a lot were the lovely beds with thick matrasses, clean fresh sheets and a clean bathroom. The thing I missed was a common room were to sit and relax and hang out with other guests. And a common computer to use for looking up information would have been nice as an extra service. In the end I would really recommend this hostel. In a few weeks I'm gonna visit Riga again with other people and I'm thinking of booking this hostel again! -Gepke, The Netherlands
ivanbperez It was an excellent stay, the hotel was close enough to the city center that it was not a burden to get to it. The Hotel smelled clean always The room was neat and clean; free internet, the food was good and the service was amazing... The only problem was that the hotel has no elevator so if you have many bags or have problems going up and down stairs... Overall i am very satisfied with Best Hotel and will recommend it to everyone going to Riga.
nagygr The hosts are nice, the place is clean. You get a discount at a nearby parking lot. The place and the facilities are very simple, but the location is excellent.
