Hostel Amber: Hostel

I stayed here for a night, and I found a hostel well managed by young kind people.
According to my latvian frind, the location is not very good because many gypsies live around. Personally I had no problems.
From the central station, we only have 7 stops (Reznas iela) by treoley Nº15 (direction Visku iela); or 9 stops (Lubânas iela) from bus station towards Tirdzniecîbas centrs Dole.
Bus and train stations are located almost in the same plcace!

Internet service is free, and about 8 computers are availables.
Free transportation wasn't available when I arrived at the bus station, but it was sunday.

Hotel Aurora: Riga-Hotel Aurora

NEVER go there, its really ***, the staff is unfriendly, it smells and is dirty. The only good thing about it is the price and the central location. But I strongly advise you to not go there.

Its ***. Uniquely ***.

Old Town Hostel: Good, cheap and central hostel!

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! ;-)

Hotel Victorija

A good low budget hotel,situated in a nice art noveau building, not far from the station and the old town (about 1km)
The hotel is simple, cheap enaugh, and well located.
When i was there, a part of it was renovated (and the rooms were a bit more expensive than the unrenovated ones)
We had a renovated double without bathroom (it was in common on the floor); the room was clean and comfortable, and also the bathroom was clean as well.
We paid about 30EU/day for the room.
I think if i'll go back in Riga i'll come here again.

email: reservation@hotel-viktorija.lv

under the hotel there's the Staburags restaurant...try it! :-)

Hostel RPRA: Cheap and clean hostel

Small, cheap and clean hostel in a typical concrete soviet flat. I did not see anyhting like a common room, or a kitchen - just rooms. The rooms itself are really nice though, big, light, own (soviet-style) bathroom and shower, clean bed linen, etc. I paid about 7 EUR per night for a double room all for myself.. but that was in March, I would guess it is more expensive in summer. Really nice and friendly elderly lady running the hostel.

When you get in for the first time the door guard (or whatever that dude is doing) will probably ask (or shout) you what you are doing there.. in Russian, and not let you go until you've mentioned the word 'hostel' a couple of times. Well, at least the hostel seems safe ;)

You get a pretty good view of downtown Riga from the rooms, which are at the 9th floor.
