Lovely place and stuff. Good and chill vibes ,perfect place for solo travelers. Not exactly party hostel but enough cool activities and drinking games going on every evening. Location is just in the center next to all the attractions.

The best possible location just in the middle of everything - railway station, Origo shopping mall, Old Town, city center. In the same building 24/7 McDonalds. Hostel with a great atmosphere, cozy and clean. Helpful stuff, feels like home. Best possible value for the money.

The staff are all fantastic and friendly, events are held almost every night. In summer they are held on a schedule (eg pub crawl on Friday etc) or when I...

Was suppose to stay here for a day or two. Ended up staying for two weeks. The stuff members are great and really make you feel at home.

I can highly recomend the Cinnamon Sally to all backpackers. When you enter the hostel you automatically feel like beeing home. Fresh waffels and coffee are waiting for everyone in the morning for free. The staff showed us all the important sights and great insiders on the map.

Bathrooms are (surprise surprise) very clean, too. Staff offers every day...

I can't say enough good things about this hostel. The staff are absolutely brilliant. The owner is really friendly, really approachable and fun. And that obviously transfers through to the staff that work in the hostel. During my stay one of the guys (Tom) took us out on his night off to show off some of the more local bars....

I was traveling to Riga by myself and booked my own room at this hostel to have access to social activities and wasn't disappointed. The location is good - a 5-minute walk from the airport bus stop (#22), the main bus station and the old town. The facilities are well kept and comfortable. They provide a towel as well. And...

Really lovely place with a great friendly atmosphere and nice art work too. The staff were so helpful too and we felt so welcome. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Great location too, close to the old town and the supermarket.
