Look no further, you are home. The squirrel will greet you with a smile and leave you with a teary hug. All the rooms, facilities, kitchen, common rooms and reception are wonderfully clean and comfy. Plenty of bathrooms on each floor. Super comfy beds with spacious lockers. What makes the squirrel special are very clearly the staff, though. No question...

I've stayed at Naughty Squirrel twice now, and both times were amazing! I've stayed in a private room with private bathroom and in the girls dorm. Both room were really nice and clean. And they provide you with nice, big, lush towels which was a real nice surprise, as very few hostels do this. The common area is quite big...

I stayed here for the second time this year when previously I visited in winter. I gave a gleaming review before and now I'll do it again. This hostel never disappoints me! It still remains the best hostel I've ever stayed in. What differs from when I stayed in March is that I think there may even be more activities...

It's really close to BUS station, train station and to get the BUS to airport. Also in the heart of the old town. They provide a lot of information about what to visit, activities, where to eat. Stuff is the most friendly I ever saw. They receive you with a typical drink, for free :) great touch! Beds are new...

I was afraid of having noise during the night, but maybe because we were not there during the weekend we did no have any noise problems. One...

I stayed here for about 3 nights and I did not regret it at all. Wifi was a little weak in my room but it was fine. Location is really good - right smack in the centre of Old Riga and about 3-5 minutes away from the main bus station and train station. My room was well-decorated and extremely clean....

The first time we walked in I already had a good and comfy feeling about staying in this hostel! The lounge areas were nice to hang out and meet other people. The bedroom was big enough for four persons and really clean, just as the toilets and showers. The staff organized so many cool things for everyone such as happy...
