"Hostel in very central location" Elizabeth's Youth Hostel Riga Tip by sunbird_travel

Elizabeth's Youth Hostel Riga, Riga: 51 reviews and 8 photos

I stayed there in late April (off season), comment maybe different during the peak seasons.

Pro: (1) very central location on a somehow quiet street next to the train station. (2) Guarded Parking right outside the hostel (LVL3 for overnite). (3) clean and power shower.

Cons: (1) the rooms are dirty, very dirty that you dont wanna put your bag on the floor. (2) the beds are too soft to sleep on, I had a backache after my 2 night stay. (3) the receptionists speak absolutely no English and the universal body language doesnt help. need to call the ower (manager) if you have further question and she isnt very helpful neither but she speaks English.

Address: 101 Elizabetes Street
Directions: Turn right when you exist the train station. pass an indoor parking loft and a gambling center, turn the next right. will see a big parking lot on your left and a local bus startion behind you.
