Cinnamon Sally Backpackers Hostel Reviews

An Amazing hostel, very cosy and friendly atmosphere and staff. A+++

I had a great time at cinnamon sallys hostel. The staff are not only very friendly but they are very helpful answering and of your questions. The hostel is clean and cozy, a really nice atmosphere and you could see that cleaning was happening daily. The bed was comfy and the dorm was clean. Originally I booked 3 nights here but I ended up staying at cinnamon sallys for 10 nights because of how much I had enjoyed my stay. Meeting really friendly people and who I went on day trips around Latvia with. The location of the hostel is great. Near all the shops you could need and not far to all the attractions. I will be recommending this hostel to everyone going to riga. Staying here has given me a great experience as I start my traveling.

Very comfortable place

This hostel in Riga is placed next to the railway station and not far away from the old town (a foot walk of 10 minutes). Sleeping-rooms and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable. Especially the lounge is very comfortable and it is very relaxing to sit with other people and talk to each other. The staff is very nice too and provides information confirming culture, food and attractions. There is also one guy who can show the best party places to you. Summing up it is one of the best hostels I have ever visited.


Cinnamon Sally Backpackers hostel is one of the best places to stay in Riga. The staff are pretty friendly and the facilities are very good. They have a free computer and Wi-Fi to use, plus there is a McDonald's downstairs for anyone who's feeling a bit too lazy to cook and not adventurous enough to go out and discover some of the nice restaurants and cafes in Riga. There is no free breakfast here but they do have free tea and coffee.

The Location

The hostel is located at most about a ten-minute walk from the bus station. It is fairly easy to find, especially if you follow the directions given by the hostel when you book. Riga is quite small so it's not too hard to get around, but the central location of Cinnamon Sally's really helps. A supermarket is conveniently located just across the road inside a huge shopping centre.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The bedrooms are very clean and comfortable. You can lock the main door and also they provide lockers for free, you don't need to have your own padlock. The beds are very comfy, everything seems to have a fresh a new smell to it, with all decent Ikea furnishings that are cleaned every day. There are no options for private rooms, but there are many different size rooms, from four to ten beds.

The bathrooms also get cleaned every day. There are two separate toilets, two communal sinks, and four shower rooms. The only annoying thing is the sensors on the lights -- every couple of minutes during your shower you will find yourself waving your arms around frantically to try and get the light to turn back on!

Common Spaces

There is one main common room that doubles as the kitchen/eating area. There are lots of bean bags lying around and a couple of sofas, however when the hostel is fully booked there's going to be a lot of fighting for a decent place to sit. The kitchen is well stocked with oils and spices and lots of pans to use -- everything you could require. The main drawback to the common room is the fact that it is also used as the reception. When there is nothing for the staff to do, they all hang out in the common room and take up a lot of space, sometimes leaving their paying guests to squeeze up on one sofa. No one minds having a chat with the staff whatsoever, but sometimes it would be nice if they got out of the way so their guests could have a seat!


Good luck finding somewhere nicer than this to stay in Riga. The prices are good, the facilities are great, and the location is perfect.
