Alexander G about Doma Hostel: Brilliant location, great service, perfect room for 12 guys (stag-do)
Brilliant location, great service, perfect room for 12 guys (stag-do)Doma hostel was a great place to stay in Riga, with a perfect location in the heart of the old town. There were twelve of us staying in one room (for a stag do, of course), but it was pleasantly roomy and airy. Beds were bunk beds, but very comfortable (if a bit rickety!). Only one toilet and two showers for two rooms, but we didn't have any issues. The room might have some soundproofing issues (as there's a door, but no wall above), but we had no issues.The owner was very hospitable, giving us recommendations, allowing us to leave our bags when checking in and not kicking up any fuss when she had to buzz in a few of us very early (or late) in the morning (with all the keys in the room).Ps. We only saw the first floor where the reception was, but there other rooms above.
Hostel is in the middle of Old Town, you can just walk any part of it in about 4-5 minutes. Common room is tidy, toilet & baths are always clean. Room was bigger than it seemed in pictures. Vineta is also a great host, she'll help you anyway she can. It was great to stay here !
Location of Doma Hostel is great - in the heart of the wonderful old city. The place is clean and safe. The rooms and facilities are basic but adequate for a 1 nighter.
I give 5 stars for Doma Hostel because it provided me with exactly what I needed for an unexpected quick overnight in Riga on my way to Kiev. Clean, well-run, centrally located, a single room, inexpensive. A nice helpful touch was their fun YouTube video showing how to get there from the airport.
