Dome Pearl Hostel
Ranked #61 of 147 Speciality Lodging in Riga
Reviewed 25 September 2009

As the name implies it is located right next to the Dome Cathedral, in the centre of Riga old town, brilliant location. There is a "Double Coffee" café just around the corner and numerous other bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The only problem we had, which many others have listed also, is that there is a slight smell coming from the toilet, if you shut the bathroom door though you can't tell but still it is worth noting. The rooms were very big and spacious, although our double bed had two single sheets and 2 single duvets which was a bit of a pain.

We booked a room with 4 beds and a private bathroom and since we were only 2 people, we had plenty of space to move around and stack our clothes. The bathroom was very basic, could do with a bit of updating. The room, although basic was decent and clean. There was a double bed and 2 bunks, a couple of chairs and a table. We had no view, but the hostel is perfectly located right in the centre of town.

This is a good hostel if you are on a budget.

A very friendly staff, definitely the place to stay for a bunch of nice young people! :) Really close of all the "must to see" of the city and not so far of the international bus station as well. A cheap urban bus connects the city center to the airport.

After some days in Jurmala in a "hotel" this was an upgrade for me and my friend.
When we found the correct street it was easy to find the hostel.
It`s located in the middle of the old town with the Dome`s square and all the restaurants and nightlife. The room was big and nice with a bunk-bed,a table,two chairs and a great view:) There were 2 toilets and 2 showers on each floor,cleaned several times every day.Internet for free and a fridge with beer and water if we`d like to buy. They did also offer a 4 hour citywalk for free if we wanted:)
I`d definitely go back to this hostel:) I give it a top score! It`s of course not to compare with a good hotel,but for a hostel it`s great!!

Good value for money. We booked a 4 person room for 4 nights around NYE 2008. The room was basic, but had a quite comfortable bed, a table and some chairs. From the room we could look on Dome Square, so the location of the Hostel is perfect. The room was clean and so were the shared showers and toilets. They were cleaned every day. The staff was very helpful and can provide you with things like map and other information. Even though the staff do not all speak very good English, they really try to help you with your questions.

The main downside of the room was the 'thin walls', as the noise of other visitors was quite well noticable.
