Details of Funky Hostel And Apartments, Riga, Latvia Youth Hostels Details for Funky Hostel And Apartments

Australian-Latvian family owned and run for the benefit of sensible traveller.

This small, quiet, clean and friendly hostel is only 5 minutes walk from everything that's worth seeing in Riga!
We have located our hostel by choice in the best area of Riga near cozy cafes, green parks and busy shopping streets. We are in the cleanest and safest part of the town, close to main train and bus station.

Of course we have free internet access on the computer in the lounge and free wifi all over the hostel if you're carrying your own laptop/iPad etc.

We have a 4 security door system with a single easy to use electronic smart card. Each dorm bed has its own underbed locker that can fit your whole bag, our fire safety system is directly connected to the Fire Department.

Because we only have a maximum of 25 guests at any time you get much more personal attention than you would in larger hostels and we're happy to spend some time giving directions and passing on our local knowledge of places to go and things to see. Our reception staff is always available to help make sure you enjoy your stay in Riga and have the perfect day of sightseeing or night of partying.

We also have a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, free coffee/tea and even a blender! There is a supermarket only two blocks away for self catering and plenty of nice, cheap restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. Nearby you will find traditional Latvian food as well as Indian, Japanese, Lebanese, burger, pizza and coffee shops.

Feel free to hang out on the couches, watch the big screen TV (more than 300 movies available) and have a few (and maybe a few more) pre-party drinks with the other guests. Riga's night life is amazing when you know the right places!
