Description - Hostel

Probably the BEST LOCATION in historical Riga Old Town centre. Hostel renovated January 2006, new beds and mattresses, showers.

All nationalities welcome here. Clean, informative midsize hostel /backpackers/, within 100m to tourist office and within 20m to historical places, some popular bars..

Facing Doma Square which dates before 13th century. Cobble stone streets, medieval history, traditional Latvian food and bars are near.

800 year old city, UNESCO listed, the best Art Nouveau buildings in the world, the nightclub capital of northern europe. The highest ratio of girls to boys in the world. Wait to you see the girls, WOW. Lots to see and do. Irish bars, soviet food, Latvian nightclubs, Jazz, walk down Robert Wagner Street. Visit Doma church, 13th century, which has one of the biggest working church organs in europe over 6, 000 organ pipes. Visit soviet style central markets, opera house, sip herbal tea in one of the many cafes sit in one of the parks. Drink vodka like the local still do.

Dorm rooms face the main square. Easy walk from main bus and train station.

Ask us for a list of non tourist night clubs and cheap eat places. Rigaoutthere and Partyinriga nightclub and bar tours arranged. Most danceclubs open till 06:00 thu, fri and sat.
Shoot an AK -47machine gun, ride on an olympic bobsled track, free winter ice skating, best views of all Latvia - level 26, skyline bar. Come and visit for 2 days or twenty two. Just come and say "G'day". You will be pleasantly surprised with Riga. Fair dinkum mate.

How to get there

Getting to Doma Hostel

Most younger people speak some English yet are often shy to talk back.
Everyone knows Doma Laukums (Doma Square) and Doma church, the tallest church in Riga.
Ask for directions to Doma Square, we are in Skunu iela 16 (Skunu street pronounced like tuna with an s) we are opposite Double Coffee and above Planeta Sushi and Latvijas balzams.

The hostel is about 400metres and six streets from here. Cross the 6 lane main road called Janvara iela 13 (13th january street).
You can cross the road by using the city underpass tunnels.

The taxi rank is on departure level and the red taxi service Awaits. Taxi ride is about 15 mins to city. Cost about 7 lats. Make sure the meter is on. The taxi can not enter riga old town so get the driver to drop you off at the Latvian Occupation museum , walk up Kungu street to Doma church and look for the Double Coffee sign, we are opposite.
