Old Town Hostel: "Good, cheap and central hostel!" Riga Hotel Tip by Carletto76

  The hostel
by Carletto76

I had read good reviews about this Australian owned and managed hostel right in the centre of Old Rīga. And after I spent there 2 nights I can suggest it to everyone, since it's a nice place, in a great spot of the town, clean, cheap and there is nothing I can complain about.
You can get in/out at any hour and you are deep in the heart of Old Rīga. Bathrooms are clean and in common (maybe not too many), while there is also 1 computer with internet connection... so prepare to wait a bit, but you can use it for free! ;-)
There's a nice living room where you can meet other travellers, usually nice people! ;-)
