Riga is the capital of Latvia and largest city in the Baltic States, with a population of almost seven hundred thousand people. Riga was a Hanseatic city for a long time and there are buildings of different styles of medieval architecture in the Old Town. Riga was also the largest port and one of the most important industrial, commercial, and cultural centers in the Russian Empire. The historic city center of Riga is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was chosen as a cultural capital of Europe for the coming year. Apart from the Old Town, you can visit the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, the Museum of the History of Riga and Navigation, and the Riga Cathedral.
Riga is also a great party place. The city has a lot of clubs that operate until the early morning and you can go out and party anytime. This might be also a problem, as many visitors go to Riga for partying and if you have a noisy group at your Riga hostel, that might be not so nice, so be sure to have an idea if you go to a party Riga hostel or a quiet place.
The choice of Riga hostels is enormous and their number is constantly rising. You can even find two competing hostels in one building or next to each other. The main concentration of Riga hostels is in the Old Town and there are also many Riga hostels near the train station. The competition has driven prices very low and you can find very cheap Riga hostels; if you stay for more days, ask for a discount. If a Riga hostel does not give you any, their competitors probably will. Riga hostels have different quality and it does not depend on the price. There are some very bad Riga hostels which are not cheaper than the others so Riga is one of the cities where comparing different Riga hostel options online is a must.

Posh Backpackers Hostel
"Posh Backpackers Hostel is an Eastern-block-style hostel. The Location The hostel is three minutes' walking distance from the coach station, right in the middle of the Central Market. You can walk to the Old Town in around five to ten minutes. Right across the hostel is a police station, so you can feel pretty safe. It is easy to find when you have a map. The neighbourhood is very simple -- nothing fancy here -- the bustle of the market...
THE NAUGHTY SQUIRREL BACKPACKERS
"My wife and I stayed at Argonaut for five days (14-18 Sept 2005). This was our second hostel stay ever, and I can tell you it was an AWESOME experience. The staff are excellent. They were always friendly, more than helpful and very easy to talk to. We made our reservation online, and had no problem with that. The small kitchen has no stove, but it is so cheap to eat in Latvia, it was really no problem. The coffeemaker is nice, and there are...
HI - Riga - Elizabeth's Hostel
"Elizabeth's hostel is just outside the old town of Riga. It's relatively close to both the railway station and bus station, and on a map it looks close, but there are underpasses and traffic lights which make it confusing to negotiate the way there. To get to the bus station, keep walking along the street and keep the Stockman department store on your left hand side, and walk towards the central market. The hostel is not very well marked...
Riga Old Town Hostel & Backpackers Pub
"First we'd like to say that we had a really great time in this hotel. The welcome is wonderful, the owners are cool and we felt at home quite quickly. Then the place is very pleasant, with the rooms, the sauna, the free Internet, and the pub. The hotel has a pretty good situation in Old Riga. If you are lost just ask George or Adam and they will tell you everything you want or you need to know. Have a nice trip in Riga and thanks for...
Friendly Fun Franks Hostel
"Friendly Fun Franks Hostel is definitely a hostel where you can count on meeting lots of other backpackers. In fact, the first thing you'll notice when you follow the hostel's directions to their front door, is the sign instructing backpackers to enter through the alley. This is a little inconvenient, as you have to be rung up from the alley each time you enter, and the people answering the bell via the intercom actually expect you to say...
"Tiger Hostel in Riga has a great location and low prices, but very poor facilities. It is one of the most neglected hostels in Riga, so it is advisable to stay elsewhere. The Location The location can hardly be better. Tiger Hostel is located only five minutes on foot from the Main Square and only three minutes from the train station. Even the bus going to the airport has a station that is just a few minutes from Tiger Hostel. Rooms...
Funky Hostel & Apartments
"Very Friendly, smallish hostel with a great host Eve!! - Cosy hostel with small communal lounge with a very homely feel -- Eve (a lovely Australian lady) was a fantastic host and went out of her way to help find our way around the city with some great tips! Good location only a 10 minute walk to old town, plenty of restaurants and cafes around it with a large Rimi supermarket only two blocks away. Top level, so lots of walking up to level 5....
"Tucked away on a quiet side street, Riga Hostel offers the best of both worlds -- an incredible location and an inexpensive price. The hostel is located on the second through seventh floors of a typical old-town building (tall and narrow) in the center of old town Riga, literally within view of St. John's and St. Peter's. In the basement is a "gentleman's club," which the hostel advises against visiting (their information sheet posted on the...

HI - Riga - Profitcamp Student Hostel
"The newly opened Profitcamp Hostel is located just off the main street in old town Riga. It's a bit off-putting to enter, considering you have to pass through a small alleyway into a dirty courtyard to reach the entrance of the hostel. Even worse, the strip club in the basement attracts a rather seedy crowd, making it uncomfortable for single/female travelers. After reaching the hostel entrance on the second floor of the building, you'll...

HI - Riga - Dome Pearl Hostel
"An unassuming hostel in a beautiful old building right near the Dom in Old Town, Dome Pearl Hostel is well situated but still a fifteen-minute walk from the bus/train stations. This hostel is purely functional -- besides two couches in the reception area, the hostel lacks common social areas and thus attracts a quieter, older crowd. Some of the amenities include wireless internet, one computer for general use, microwave, electric teapot,...
