Since this is one of the cheapest places to stay we didn't have high expectations but everything was just better than expected. Clean rooms with great location and the staff was nice also! We spent 3 days here last summer but we are definitely going back since the city is wonderful.

The hostel is located close to the old city centre of Riga. All the rooms are in the top floor and there is no elevator, but in my opinion that's no big deal. The service is really great. The owner/receptionist always asked if he could help us with anything and even looked up train and bus connections for us and...

I've stayed a few days at the Funky Hostel. Its about a 10 minute walk out of Old Town, which is actually a lot better because there's a lot to do outside the centre. The hostel is very homely and comfy. It offers a couple of dorm and private rooms. There is plenty of room in the dorm rooms which...

Stayed one night only and really enjoyed it. Great location, just few minutes walk to the town, lovely interiors - the place is clean and neat! People in the hostel and staff are friendly and you feel well taken care of. Quite safe, good wifi and reasonable price. Beds very comfy! Enjoyed it.

Really nice hostel in a great location. A good base for a trip to Riga (top floor with lots of stairs though). Nice relaxing common areas and helpful staff. Simple but welcome breakfast is provided and there is a fridge full of beer!

Riga is going to be the next popular destination. Funky Hostel was first established by an Australian gentleman now managed by two brothers. The hostel located on the top floor of a historic building with no elevator thus requires some negotiation of stairs when travelling with luggage. But the hostel is close to Riga’s most beautiful Art Nouveau area. Kitchen...

I've been to Riga for 2 nights in the Funky Hostel. Everything was as expected, large room in the 5th floor ( you gotta take the stairs ) with a nice view and you even get a little breakfast with coffee and tea. The staff was really helpful and available for all our questions anytime. The hostel is located central...
