Naughty Squirrel Hostel
This is the ideal base for exploring Riga Castle, which is just 11 minutes away on foot. The hostel is refreshingly straightforward. It has comfy dorms and private triple rooms, clean complimentary bed linens and towels, free under-bed lockers and a steady supply of tea and coffee. Feeling sociable? Hang out in the two homey lounges or 24-hour bar – it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, after all. Time your trip right, and you can enjoy pub crawls, movie nights and even try your hand at dog sledging.
