This definitely one of the best hostels on this planet! No just because the location is super central, the hostel in exceptionally clean or the atmosphere is great...it is because of the squirrels (how the staff calls themselves)! Thanks a lot girls for amazing, funny 3 days in Riga! Thanks to Katharina for being our welcome and good morning squirrel...

You can't make things better than that. Starts with a nice hang out room where it's easy to meet other people. The kitchen and Showers was always clean and the bed was remarkable. An own light, plug in for charger and curtains for privacy? I never had that before in a hostel! And now comes the best: friendly stuff who...

I originally booked a different hostel and was moved to this one, and I am so happy I was! The second you walk in the receptionists make you feel so at home, and you never feel like an inconvenience. Amazing comfortable beds, with curtains light and two power points. Very nice modern clean bathrooms. Everything was spotless. Thank you so...

This hostel is excellent- the beds are really comfortable, the staff are friendly and helpful and there are nights out organised if that is what you fancy. It is still quiet however as the bedrooms are on separate floors to the common area. Overall, I would highly recommend this hostel for anyone visiting Riga.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It's a good size, sociable, in a very good location and has all the facilities you would need. The bar crawl was well run, towels were provided and the staff were also excellent.

Friendly, beautiful staff, great location (right at the edge of old town, near some really nice pubs and restaurants), clean rooms with good security. I was not left wanting anything, except a longer stay next time :)

Whilst it is getting on in years, this is still a really great base to call home when in Riga. The team are friendly, enthusiastic and very, very social. If you're traveling solo you'll have no trouble meeting new people from the moment you drop packs. Rooms, beds, common areas and bathrooms are clean and comfortable... And the beer is...

Drinking games, great atmosphere, comfortable and spacious rooms- together with clean bathroom facilities. Naughty Squirrel delivers on everything it promises. This was the second time I've stayed there and would thoroughly recommend to anyone travelling through Riga on a budget.
