Important Information

Funky Hostel is for travellers that want a quality chill-out hostel Managed by Fred (Latvian) Owned by Dean (Australian) and Liva (Latvian) This small, quiet, clean and friendly hostel is only 5-10 minutes walk from everything that’s worth seeing in Riga! In case you do want to venture further a field there's a tram/bus stop 30 seconds away (with the train and bus station 2 stops away). We have located our hostel by choice in the best area of Riga. We are in the cleanest and safest part of the town. Of course we have free internet access on the computer in the lounge and free wi-fi all over the hostel if you're carrying your own laptop. We have a 4 security door system with a single easy to use electronic smart card. Each dorm bed has its own under bed locker that can fit your whole bag, our fire safety system is directly connected to the Fire Department. Because we only have a maximum of 25 guests at any time you get much more personal attention than you would in larger hostels and we're happy to spend some time giving directions and passing on our local knowledge of places to go and things to see. Our reception staff is always available to help make sure you enjoy your stay in Riga and have the perfect day of sightseeing or night of partying. We also have a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, free coffee/tea and even a blender! There is a supermarket only two blocks away for self catering and plenty of nice, cheap restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. Nearby you will find traditional Latvian food as well as Indian, Japanese, Lebanese, burger, pizza and coffee shops. Feel free to hang out on the couches, watch the big screen TV (more than 300 movies available) and have a few (and maybe a few more) pre-party drinks with the other guests. Riga's night life is amazing when you know the right places! Tours available, AK-47 shooting, real bobsled rides, prison reality tour and many more... Basically we can take you anywhere you want,
