“Relaxing and liberal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2010

We stayed there for five days, we saw all we wanted to see in Riga in two days. The rest were quite dull in the city, but we really enjoyed staying in the hostel since it was so coasy and it honestly felt like home.

Thanks to Fred for the tips and the definately nice stay.

at equal distance from the old town, the art nouveau neighborhood and the new town, funky hostel could be the best choice for this amount of money (breakfast included!). The manager was really helpful, always willing to tell the most interesting things to see around. I found the hostel a little cold (maybe because there were -15 degrees C outside), but with those thick blankets you get warm in a minute. If i ever go back to Riga, i'll definitely go back to funky hostel

We visited Riga during the airline crises caused by the volcano. The group visiting Funky hostel before us could not leave and so we had to be relocated. The hostel manager Freddy took a very good care of us - also no problems with our luggage. For the same price what we calculated for our trip we got the accommodation in the apartement. It is true what the hostel says that only max 25 guests available for the hostel give you a much more personal attention. The location is also great surrounded by many nice restaurants and art nouveau buildings. Good sleep is also quarranteed!!! No bar and small breakfast.

The hostel is situated just outside the old city center, in walking distance of both the old town as well as sights, bars, etc in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Rooms were tidy and quiet, clean bathrooms/showers, breakfast is basic but plenty, there's free internet, a mega tv with dvd's, etc. Plus the owner is of great help if you need some info on how and when to visit sport events, clubs, etc. 24h access with keycard-locks.
I've seen quite a few hostels along the way but this one's hard to beat!
