Naughty Squirrel Backpackers Hostel Reviews

Definite do!

especially the location in the old city centre in combination with cleanliness and fair pricing makes this hostel a good place to stay. Staff is friendly and genuinely interested. The only true disappointment is the lack of squirrels either naughty or good, there are none to be found. do the pub tour on your first night to learn what pubs are worth going. Did the tour with Nuna and had an excellent time. Also the shooting tour is worth every penny!

Could've been better

although room was nice, in the middle of night got woken up by people shouting in corridor/room next to us.



nice, clean hostel with great common areas and clean kitchen! rooms were well equipped and spacious. lockers are available, but not inside the rooms i stayed in. staff was friendly, helpful and in party mood! lots of activities provided by the hostel. one small mistake concerning reservation, but solution was found in a few seconds. prices of activities are pretty high sometimes, but that's not the hostel's mistake, since they just communicate with the organisers of the trips.

We just got back from a random trip to Riga because of the cheap brilliance of ryanair and we had an amazing time, this is probably mainly due to the hostel we stayed in! As well as being the cleanest hostel with the best facilities we have all probably ever stayed in, its also the friendliest with fantastic staff. From the moment we got there we were welcomed and made to feel at home and any advice/directions were given straight away. The location of the hostel is also brilliant, really close to anything you want to see! Highly recommended and we'll hopefully be back soon!

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 small tables to sit at to relax.

The TV/community room was large, with comfortable couches. There was a VERY large plasma TV on the wall, and a nice selection of DVDs to watch. There is one computer with free Internet. It was very easy to check e-mail/pay bills and whatever we needed to do while away from home.

There was one day that the Internet was not working, BUT the girl at the front desk had it working by the end of the day, as she promised. (Really NOT a major problem for us, I've got better things to do than stay on the computer all day.)

The room we stayed in was a private double room. It was very clean and more than adequate for our needs. The linens were provided and the bathrooms, which were out in the hall, were clean, We always had hot water and I never had a problem getting into the bathroom, even though there were a lot of people in the hostel over the weekend. The location of the hostel is perfect, VERY easy access to Old Town and all the tramlines.

Would I stay there again? In a heartbeat. I Love RIGA, and I can't wait to go back. So much has changed since I was there in 1990. If you have any questions you can e-mail me at:

They had no problem at all with my reservation and I had a great time there. I met some great people whom I traveled with all over the Baltic States. A real party place, though not really for relaxation. The management is pretty easy-going and the location is very good, within walking distance of everything.

No stove, lockers or reading lights prevents it getting my fifth star.


It seemed good to me. Friendly, free Internet, kitchen space with a microwave, and a lovely warm shower. No complaints.


This hostel is definitely average. There's constant chaos. We arrived at 4 p.m. and our room wasn't ready, last night's guests were still in there. And you constantly hear of numerous booking stuff-ups, where people booked and paid for the first night but they have no beds available.

The facilities aren't the greatest either. Out of the three toilets on our floor one has no seat and the bathrooms could do with a bit of a scrub. The adventure tours they advertise weren't even on offer. The only thing the place has going is free Internet and cheap beer!!! Don't bother.
