Big room, clean. The breakfast was very good. The situation was excellent for architecture and arts lovers. Some restaurants nereby, Alberta Iela just around the corner. Walking distance to the old town. The property was not quite ready, personal place to stay.

Good location, friendly staff and really good breakfast for a great price. The only downside were the wifi which sometimes worked, sometimes didn't and the bathroom sink which was slow running. Don't miss the amazing mural outside.

This is a little secluded, feels like a back alley hostel but very quiet in a good way and large rooms. Breakfast is phenomenal given the price. Lots of cold meats, coffee, bread, eggs, pastries e.t.c Very generous indeed.

Thank Nidal B
